Comments : One of the best bars in Ybor with a variety of indoor and patio activities; music, great food, themed events.
Comments : The New Menu Launch Party at Gaspar's Grotto was a great time to try out some of their foods. I ate outside and they had enough fans with water mist to keep you cool in this hot Florida weather.
Pros : The new menu food was delicious. The foods was cook perfectly and well seasoned. I tried: Grilled Chicken & Fried Pork "MOFONGO" Pesto Mussels & Clams New Orleans BBQ Shrimp Fried Pork Belly Burgers
Cons : Parking in Ybor!
Comments : awesome music inside and outside great drinks great karaoke full selection of songs to choose from awesome selection of beer and shots.
Pros : great drinks
Cons : no cons
Comments : I love that this place is dog friendly! They even have an item on the menu that you can order for dogs. Love it. The atmosphere is great which is the main reason to go there. The food is decent but I have not tried anything that wowed me yet. The pork nachos were interesting but not bad, also tried the Mahi Mahi sandwich-was ok and the Half chicken-which is great and is enough for 2 people. The place gets very busy sometimes so the service can be hit or miss. In general a great place to go to drink and relax.
Pros : Atmopshere
Cons : service
Comments : Love the place!!!
Comments : I went to Gaspar's Grotto with a friend for girls night out. Love the $2 beer and shot special. Like that they have seating outside for people who smoke and smoking is allowed inside after 9pm. They had a DJ playing music out on patio and live music inside with Earl Brown. Like the atmosphere of the bar. Like that they have pet friendly saturdays to bring your dog once a month and beach outings that start and end at Gaspar's Grotto. A all around friendly fun place to go. A must see in Ybor.
Pros : Drink Specials and Live entertainment inside and out. Lots of monthly events to particapate in like beach parties, bring your dog saturdays once a month and lunch cruises.
Cons : For people who smoke you have to smoke outside but after 9 pm you can inside. Parking is limited to 2 hours near place or you can use the parking garage or take bus or cab.
Comments : Gaspar's is one of my favorite bars in Ybor City. Live music, outdoor patio bars, good food, friendly staff and pirate themed. It's a fun bar that always has events going on whether its pet related, art, charity, live music or even beach themed, they throw a good part.
Pros : The people, the staff, outdoor patio bars and live music.
Cons : Parking, just like any place in Ybor City can be a pain at certain times of the day.
Comments : Gaspar's might not be the most inventive, elegant, or contemporary bar and restaurant in Ybor City, but it's one the most dependable. Head in to Gaspar's and you know exactly what you're gonna get; a laid back time on their HUGE outdoor patio, maybe some cool, local live music, a huge variety of tasty food, and an equally large drink selection to wash it down.
Pros : $2(or $3) shot and a PBR can't be beat. Good specials throughout the week. Blues Jam on Wednesday night is always awesome.
Cons : Like anywhere in Ybor, parking can be a pain. Bring a couple bucks to pay.
Comments : Gaspar's Grotto has everything you want and need in a bar/restaurant. I tried the stomboli which was great and one of the best things is they are DOG FRIENDLY!! Not only are they dog friendly, but they cater to your dog and even have food for dogs on the menue. They do "Paws on the Patio" I believe on the first Saturday of each month. Lots of entertainment and the pirate decor fits with the Ybor theme.
Pros : Food is great, drink specials can't be beat with their $2 for a shot and beer, lots to do including live entertainment, beer pong, pool, and much more.
Cons : Took a little while to get the food but they were busy and I think short handed but well worth the wait.
Pros : Fun atmosphere. Great for events, the outdoor patio is huge!
Cons : Parking in Ybor City is terrible. Use the garage on 15th!
