Tampa’s food scene is no stranger to accolades especially now that our city has 3 MICHELIN-starred restaurants. The New York Times just put out its list of the 50 restaurants their editors are most excited about right now, and Tampa’s own Salt Shack on the Bay (5415 W Tyson Ave) made the list.
“The Salt Shack feels like it’s been catching the ocean breeze on the edge of Rattlesnake Point for decades,” writes editor Kim Severson. Before this listing I had no idea it was called Rattlesnake Point. Severson continues, “Jimmy Buffet would have liked this place, where there is no problem a platter of fresh Gulf shrimp and a drink with a pineapple slice couldn’t solve.”
Salt Shack on the Bay shines with Gulf flavors and views
Salt Shack on the Bay has to be one of the best spots to enjoy golden hour in the state of Florida. There are no walls to obstruct your views. The restaurant and bar frequently hosts live music performances, and always has an array of fresh seasonal specials to indulge in.
“The sprawling menu has a vague Caribbean bent, with jackfruit tacos dressed in jicama slaw and jerk burgers with fries, but the real gold is anything that lets all that great Gulf seafood shine,” adds Severson.
