Tampa Restaurant Review: The Blind Goat

28 Mar

I have a new neighbor! My little neighborhood in Tampa, Palma Ceia West, has something new popping up nearly every week. The latest addition is The Blind Goat. Housed in a dentist office-turned wine bar-turned The Blind Goat, it still maintained the quirky outside 70’s décor while updating the inside.

Hard to see around the row of Escalades (typical South Tampa).

The bar area.

Lots of seating.

The drink menu is pretty awesome. The cocktails sound amazing, but I have yet to try one. I usually stick to one of the great draft beer choices, and occasionally break my draft beer only rule and have a bottle of Labatt Blue, since it reminds me of home. The best part is the $15 all you can drink wine. And as soon as lent is over I plan on making them regret not charging more! (I gave up red wine for lent. Looooongest 40 days ever!)

Chalkboard menu. So trendy right now.

They have a decent menu, with dips, pizza, sandwiches, and salads. Everything is made fresh and you can tell they use quality ingredients. So far we’ve tried the pizza and the tzatziki with pita chips and veggies.

Made to order personal pizzas. You can tell which one is the Husband’s and which is mine…

The only negative is how loud it is inside. The older South Tampa dwellings are solid concrete buildings (my house included) and man, oh man, can it be loud. I swear, sounds bounce off the walls for years after they’re made.

The bartenders are super friendly. Perry, one of the owners, is a young, energetic, really nice guy and I hope The Blind Goat is very successful. Cheers to many years of being the bar where everyone knows my name.

    Thanks for sharing in the #FridaySharefest with #TBBloggers. I live in this neck of the wood and I agree its hard to keep up with all the new businesses and restaurants popping up. I will have to give this one a try now, thanks for making me aware.
