Beach at the Bay Harbor Hotel

Chef Joe Garcia refreshed the Beach Restaurant menu upon his anticipated arrival in the kitchen. Garcia’s goal is to bring a fresh take on your typical Sunday Brunch. To help satisfy the palates of all visitors, Garcia launched “Bottomless Brunch on the Bay.” The brunch features a bottomless mimosa package, fresh seafood station, carving station, build-your-own omelet, a pasta station, sushi and a chocolate fountain. The buffet is replete with southern-influenced dishes including shrimp and grits, and chicken and waffles. Enjoy lounge seating on the waterfront, or a spacious booth inside Beach. The special is available every Sunday.

Bizou fuses farm fresh ingredients with dishes that will satisfy your midday appetite and your sweet tooth.

Daily Eats offers a food and drink menu full of delicious concoctions and pairings, ranging from a Cap’N Crunch hand-churned milkshake to a Blueberry Mimosa.

Datz

Datz is one of Tampa’s most popular and irreverent spots. Their social media ingenuity is only matched by the creativity with which they craft each of their dishes. Every Saturday and Sunday, starting at 8:30a.m. you can experience their most savory menu items, including Bloody Mary’s with their special, homemade house mix and chicken fried waffles. When you visit we suggest you splurge. Datz’s funnel cake fries, served with caramel dipping sauce, strawberry pound cake, and Datz good hash — Sy Ginsberg’s corned beef, two eggs, crispy hash browns and challah toast — are all calling your name.
