We were hesitant when we pulled in to what looked like a daytime strip center. The restaurant is cheery with great chalk boards on the walls. The waitress told us of fresh fish specials and the dishes they are known for. Clam chowder was perfect and the meals were just as described! The place had a lot of locals eating, just the type of place we look for! Great experience!

If you're in Brandon, there's no need to drive to Tampa for good Cuban food and pastries. It's all right here. There's a hot-bar for traditional hot foods, or you can order a sandwich that is made-to-order. For dessert, check out the bakery counter. Try not to lose conciousness while taking it all in.

The Brunchery

Reviewed By Tinkerbell1391 - Riverview, Florida

We both had the day off so stopped in for breakfast before heading to Orlando. We both got the the weekday breakfast with French toast. It was oh so good. And quick! We ordered and it was there in just a few minutes. The place was busy but our meal came out fast. It was her first time at brunchery and I'm sure she will be bringing her husband back! Loved the food and the service! Thanks for a great breakfast!!

Willie's Seafood Restaurant

Reviewed By Brooke F

Who doesn’t love fried catfish! It’s so tasty!! They have all you can eat plates Tuesday- Thursday. They offer food options for the non seafood lover as well. They have a good steak. The creole cream seafood pasta can never go wrong either! I have been coming here for years and will continue to eat at willies. The wait staff is very nice and cater to their customers.

The Cheesecake Factory

The Cheesecake Factory offers something for everyone featuring a wide variety of over 200 menu items prepared fresh to order each day, plus over 30 legendary varieties of the Finest Cheesecake.

Reviewed By Nicole D

The food here is always amazing, but just a little warning; don't go if you're on a diet. I know the name cheesecake factory is in the name, which you would think says it all, but I get this question sometimes. Having said that, the menu is a like a book- it's 14 or so pages, and I've had far more 'hits' taste wise than misses. It can be a little pricey, but overall it's very enjoyable. I'd recommend chicken samosas, and the Jamaican shrimp (it has plantains, shrimp, and rice, it's delicious). Do not try the chicken parm pizza (it;'s something to that effect).

Tibby's New Orleans Kitchen

Tibby’s is not just about what you see but how it makes you feel. It’s about expressing personality & character through food, music, art and heritage. It is not the New Orleans you may have visited; it is the New Orleans that locals call home.

The Revolution Ice Cream Co.

Reviewed By edge8400 - Valrico, Florida

If you want a truly unique experience and quality made ice cream this is the place to try. They have a small assortment of standard flavors but the fun comes from trying their various weekly homemade concoctions to include the "Adult Only" choice made with alcohol. The prices are reasonable, the atmosphere casual/nice and the staff extremely friendly.

My son enjoyed a strawberry jam flavor while we had their vodka laced chocolate - it was awesome.

Highly Recommended.

The Landing Bar & Grill

Reviewed By KerryFla - Tampa, Florida

I'm that guy who always gives five star reviews because I have a blast every place I go. This place, not so much. It was Friday evening, the place was packed, and everyone seemed to have a need to out-shout everyone else because everyone else was doing the same thing. There was a table of eight girls / young ladies next to us and they were the worst offenders, although things didn't improve much when they finally left. It was simply too loud and the patrons were inconsiderate. My wife and I didn't talk to each other the whole meal because there was no point in trying.

We both ordered iced tea to drink, and it was the worst tea either of us had ever tasted. I sent mine back, my wife simply didn't drink hers. The waitress, when taking mine back, said, "I told you it was bad." Well, maybe she did, but there's no way I would have heard her, nor would I have wanted to hear the first think coming out of her mouth being that the drink I wanted would taste bad.

The food was about a 3, though to be fair I might have moved it to a 4 if the atmosphere were more tolerable. I had a BBQ chicken flatbread, and while it wasn't to die for, it was definitely adequate under the circumstances.

I tried to think back to the days when I want to bars for the drink rather than the food - even then I didn't like a place this loud. I don't think the patrons here were drunk, or even drinking heavily - they were just shouting in a place with bad acoustics. Maybe they're better on a weeknight, but there are far too many good restaurants in Brandon/Valrico for us to take a chance on that.
