Review for Eddie and Sams New York Pizza by Hannah
Rating: 5 Rating
Eddie and Sams was recommended to me by a friend a few years ago and is now my go-to pizza spot in Downtown Tampa. Prices are great, pizzas are great and the slices are big- can't get any better than that!
Pros: Very close to other attractions, heart of downtown and provides outdoor seating.
Cons: A lot parking nearby but usually full and busy along the streets so try to plan ahead or use the suggested ParkMobil app.

Review for Outback Steakhouse - Temple Terrace by Lena
Rating: 5 Rating
Great Australian-themed steakhouse! We ordered RIBEYE* & choice of shrimp with two sides. It was delicious! The steak was just perfectly cooked. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall, we had a great time at this restaurant.
Pros: Great service, very tasty food. Reasonable price.
Cons: Portions of main courses and sides could be a bit bigger. The restrooms were not clean.

My favorite nightlife spot in Tampa. SOHO has a great social atmosphere, short distance to other spots and have great pricing.
Pros: In walking distance from other bars and food spots. Cheap pricing. Good area. Great social crowd.
Cons: Busy streets and not a lot of parking but affordable lots are close by and everything is very accessible.

Pros: Nearby food stops, shops and University of Tampa.
Cons: N/A

About Downtown Tampa

The Downtown Tampa skyline is growing with high rise office buildings like the Sykes building, and luxurious condominiums like Skypoint. The streets below the skyline are where you will find the many great restaurants, shops and bars that Tampa has to offer. Most of Tampa nightlife, along with other areas of interest, is found outside the downtown area in places like Hyde Park and historic Ybor City. Also located in Downtown Tampa are the Tampa Convention Center and St Pete Times Forum, where everything from classy Tampa events to exciting games happen. The University of Tampa is located just across the waters of Curtis Hixon Park, where many large, popular annual events are held. The TECO Line Streetcar provides affordable transportation to Channelside, Ybor City and downtown. Channelside is another popular neighborhood where there are popular restaurants, clubs, bars, shopping and theaters all in the same development! Harbour Island and Davis Island border Downtown Tampa just South onto the Bay Waters and house everything from enormous homes to subtle apartments all while being surrounded by their own small community with locally owned businesses, restaurants and salons. Be sure to check out everything Tampa has to offer by checking out the Tampa City Guide, where recreation, events and even local jobs in Tampa can be found!

Over the past couple years, Downtown Tampa has been undergoing rapid expansion with the development of both new entertainment complexes like Sparkman Wharf and parks like Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. In addition, Water Street Tampa is in development with new high rises, apartments, condos, shops and more!
