Hogan's Beach reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Awesome experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 1/18/2014
    While there Jimmy Hart was there as a manager and that I say was a brilliant move on Hogan's side. Myself and my friend went in not expecting much and the next thing we see is Jimmy Hart the mouth of the south. To any wrestling fan in the 80's it was a thrilling experience. He came over and took pictures with us and signed a tshirt. He was very very nice and down to earth. He even took the time to make sure the picture came out right. Excellent overall experience but I have to say the food was good also. But I would come back 1000 times to get a chance to rub elbows with iconic wrestling people!!! Very very cool. I would have been happy with McDonald's fries in there. Very awesome

    We visited on 5th January 2014 for my son's 13th Birthday, which he ended up having the best birthday ever! Not only did he meet and get autographs off Jimmy Hart but the food was also the best that we had in the 3 weeks that we were in USA. We will definitely visit again when we go back as it is not just a restaurant but a full experience for the kids.

    I love the relaxed feel of this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Grill Salmon with mashed potato and Hogan burger was amazing and the Calamari appitizer was tasty. Everyone Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable." I will be back soon.

    Food was not exceptional. It was average, no better than any chain restaurant. The prices were probably average for the area but not for the food. The only was this place is worth it is if you are a major Hulk fan.

    Dined on 12/28/2013
    We arrived toward the end of the breakfast service and they accomodated those of us who wanted lunch as well as the member of our party who wanted breakfast. The breakfast was a huge portion (maybe pro-wrestler sized?), but my lunch was smaller than I would have guessed from the description in the menu. I had wanted to try the ribs appetizer, but the new menu offers a better variety of options while eliminating some of the old offerings, so I tried something new. The loaded chicken was very good, but somewhat bland and would have been better over seasoned rice instead of a huge dollop of mashed potatoes. Overall we really enjoy this place and recommend it for the fun, the food, and the view.

    We were seated immediately in our choice of areas. We had a gorgeous view of the water. The place is very spacious with numerous areas to wander and explore including volleyball nets and separate bars. The food was hot and very flavorful. When they found out that it was the birthday of one of the members of our party, Jimmy Hart showed up to introduce himself, sign autographs and thank us for coming! We got some great sunset photos after dinner. If you're a big Hulk fan or just enjoy wrestling in general, there are numerous items displayed in cases and around the walls to look at. Even if you're not into wrestling, Hogan's Beach is a great place to wind down and relax or party hearty!

    Upset
    Dined on 11/15/2013
    Hostess showed us to our table and then left. No menu-no silverware? She came back with 2 menu's and 2 silverware. Problem is that she sat all THREE of us. She said she would be right back but never showed up. Sat there for over 10 minutes and no waitress. I got up to find a manager and he said he was sorry and would get us a waitress. Another 5-10 minutes went by and finally a waitress showed up and took our drink order. I'm not sure how fr she had to go to get them but it took quite a while. During all of this the restaurant wasn't very busy and I could see all the waitress staff having fun by the hostess/reception station. Good food but the worst service I've had in years. Terrible experience!

    Loved the outside patio next to Tampa Bay. There were a couple of beach volleyball games being played next to the patio dining area, so it's a little noisy but fun. Food was well prepared and tasty. Liked the petit fillet mignon that you can add to the Caprese salad. Much better than the usual "add shrimp for only $x add-ons. Service was prompt and friendly. Wouldn't call it fine dining but then again it's a beach bar. Bar area inside was large but being a mid-week night there was not much action.

    Parking was weird, almost no parking at the resteraunt except valet. The hotel next to Hogan's has signs up "tow away zone" and the parking in front of Hogan's was blocked off like it was valet only? we parked at the hotel and did'nt get towed. Food was great and staff was friendly.

    I read reviews on this place, for what it is. It is amazing. Great feel and vibes in the place. The food is what you would expect. The Fritters are amazing. People complain about it being too cartoony and the food being bad 1:It is built around a cartoon character, Terry himself will admit that. 2: It is Pub food. What do you expect? And for Pub Food, it isn't that bad. I would go again.

    was a little hesitant being "hulk hogans" restaurant but the food completely blew me away!! top notch fine dining, had the tuna tatiki and the seabass and both were unbelievable. Fun fun place, sat outside. Bar scene is very loud and energetic, not good for a private romantic meal. But for a fun place to go out with friends I would absolutely go back and actually cant wait to do so.

    While in town we had two lunches and dinner at the restaurant. All meals and appetizers were exellent along with friendly service (Try the Grouper sandwich and or dinner). For fans of the Hulkster there is memorabilia throughout the building along with posters and items of wrestling history. The mechanical shark, sand vollyball court and televisions inside and out add to the beach/sports bar enviroment.

    was very excited for a GNO after work and had heard great things about Hogan's Beach so we gave it a try...service was okay.....staff didn't seem to care if we were there or not, was not very welcoming....food was bland....needs more seasoning or just some salt....we had the lobster mac & cheese, crab & spinach dip, and buffalo shrimp (shrimp was seasoned well)....ordered Hogan's Punch and didn't have enough liquor (no liquor taste, just juice)....was not the night out we had hoped for

    Lots of skin and near naked bodies in a beach setting. Very nice for the younger, drinking people, but not very family friendly. Lots of very visible cleavage and thong exposure. Got to see Jimmy Hart, the best part of experience. Popping muscles and abs of wanna-be wrestlers filled the bar area. Most likely a one-time dining stop for me.

    We went for a Sunday lunch. We were sat immediately. Then we sat for at least 10 min before a busboy noticed us and asked if anyone had helped us yet. When we told him no he got our drink order and had a server over a few minutes later. Put our order in and told our server we were going to walk around. She said to leave our drinks at the table so they would know we're still sitting there. We did that and my husband also left his glasses on the table. When we came back our drinks were gone. We saw our server walk back & forth to the kitchen but she never looked our way. Had no drinks until our food came. The food was good but the server we had was very inattentive to us. We will go again and give it another chance.

    I read many reviews saying how bad the restaurant was. As a fan of Hulk Hogan, I wanted to go to the restaurant regardless of the reviews. The food was ok. Meatloaf was terrible, but fish tacos were good, and the grouper sandwich was good too. My two girls got mac n cheese and it was great. The decor is great for a hogan fan with the red, black and yellow everywhere. There was a lot of Hogan decor, and it was awesome. The decor in the lobby could have been done so much better, but that is the fault of the hotel, and not the restaurant. We originally planned to go on Sunday, but it was packed, and had valet parking only. So we decided to skip it and go the following day for lunch. Great choice. It was quiet, and more family friendly.

    Our service was horrendous. Although our waitress was very sweet, she never brought our drinks or any silverware and napkins. Another waiter finally helped out when we complained. My wife was actually staring at her food with no way to eat it (other than her hands) and had to ask for her salad more than once and it arrived after she had finished her entree. She did say that it was the best part of the meal. My son and I got a hamburger but never got any condiments for them. No adjustment to the bill was given. Then, when exiting the restaurant, we had to wait about 30 minutes for our car. After asking several times, the head valet finally went and got it for us himself.

    This was our second time at Hogan's Beach and it was even more enjoyable. My daughter is a huge wrestling fan and when she got to meet Jimmy Hart she was thrilled. I am amazed at how well the restaurant is run, with the wait staff making you feel completely welcome and genuinely care about you being there. I will continue to come back over and over.
