Service was sufficient and of course the view was great. Also liked the fellow playing guitar and singing. Too bad they are closing at end of June. TAmpa is losing a gem.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Timerthoroughly enjoyed dinner at CK's! all the workers were very attentive and friendly!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the site of our firstThis was the site of our first date and this visit was for our 30 anniversary . Very sorry this location is closing.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful sunsets at a priceLimited pricey menu. All tasty food though. Great for sunsets.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and view was great asFood and view was great as always. Hope it will reopen soon.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMCK's at MarriottI loved the venue. We had fantastic views of airplanes taking off and landing. I enjoyed my macadamian crusted grouper that the waiter suggested. The asparagus was tender. The waiter was attentive. My friend thought her shrimp had too much breading. I would return and have recommended to friends.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSad ending......to this unique treasure in Tampa Bay when they close to the public end of June. A renovation is sadly needed, but still this is a pleasant experience. Service left much to be desired, as our waiter was not overwhelmed with other tables scattered throughout. I think much of the staff has moved on to other established restaurants and some of the assistants and kitchen staff have been promoted to serve. The Macadamia grouper was outstanding, as was the carrot cake bread pudding. Our waiter was very friendly and put forth excellent effort, but was just overmatched/under experienced in his position.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe Have Always Loved CKsThis gem of a Tampa restaurant is on my family's list of favorites, and we are sad to see it go on June 29, 2013 and turn into a special events center.
Excellent food, and Ronnie who has worked there for a LONG time is a fantastic server.
The music was exceptional on the evening we went, and the artist went table to table being super courteous and welcoming.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMTY'sBDAY"I love the relaxed feel of this place - the place actually revolves! I definitely would return and advise anyone to hurry and visit. It was my fiancée's birthday and he is an aspiring chef his self so every restaurant we visit he has an opinion on décor and the menu as well. This place was outstanding because he was amazed! The steak practically melt in your mouth and the portions were fulfilling to say the least. Every table seemed to have a romantic feel. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSorry to see it go!We are new to the area, and just heard about this restaurant. We try it, and loved it. So sorry to hear that it's closing!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBest ever filetThe atmosphere is phenomenal. And the food was out of this world incredible. I would highly recommend the filet with the works it comes with this lump crab amazing topping that is just to die for, And a ton of it not just a little sparse amount.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat 360, and the food isGreat 360, and the food is just as good. However in June CK's will be moving the the Lobby Level of the Marriott, and the 360 view will be used for something else. We are hoping that the quaily of the food, and the level of service, the kitchen, and wait staff make the trip downstairs. Get there before they close becasue you need to see sunset once from CK's 360 view.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view of sunset and planesAwesomely nice folks here. Too bad it's closing in June.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest server we ever had.Over all very impressed with everything, are server went well beyond to make are annivsary a very special one. Food was some of the best we tasted in some time and was worth every pennie. Thank you ck for making are annivasry a special one.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoy Cks but unfortunatelyAlways enjoy Cks but unfortunately it is destined to close in June. The restaurant is worth saving, give them a call 813-878-65004/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDo not miss this unique experiance!This is a unique gem in Tampa. There is nothing else like it. The steaks are melt in your mouth and the seafood is fresh and prepared well. The ambiance and service is unmatched. It is a real shame that they are going to tear down this place to expand the airport. No doubt they will replace it with another TGIF's or Chili's. The revolving restaurant yields breath taking views of the Tampa and St.Pete/Clearwater skylines as well as Tampa Bay itself. The lights from the bridges reflect off of the bay waters with dazzling effects and unobstructed, brilliant sunsets. They close the revolving restaurant in June to retreat inside the hotel. They will close completely within a year so make a reservation before it is too late.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat can I say except thatWhat can I say except that it was a lovely evening and a wonderful meal at CK's. It was my friend's birthday on April 25th and he received a birthday piece of key lime pie which was excellent. George, our server, had my dinner custom made. I advised him that I could not eat shellfish for health reasons; my meal was prepared with only grouper, which I can eat. We have been to CK's in past years and it will always remain a fond memory. On one other visit, my hat fell on the carpet and the server brought it back to me - I'm sure after checking with all patrons to see who owned the hat. He actually did that twice that evening - that hat made a few trips around the restaurant!! Nice memories.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food - great view - attentiveGood food - great view - attentive service. I'll be back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe view is awesome! It'sThe view is awesome! It's sad that this place is closing soon. The food was excellent, but definitely overpriced. It's clear that you are paying for the location. I had called the restaurant a few hours before my reservation time and I asked that a dessert be brought to my table for my husband's birthday. I was told they do this all the time and it would not be a problem. After dinner, no dessert arrived and instead, the check arrived. A few tables over, I saw a dessert with a candle being delivered to someone else. This is extremely disappointing, but I couldn't say anything with my husband sitting right there! The night worked out because we went to Datz Dough for dessert and that place is amazing.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great atmosphere.Great food, great atmosphere. Would recommend for special occasion. Lots of fun for everyone. Great service as well!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCK's opened in 1974 and forCK's opened in 1974 and for many Tampa Bay people, was the restaurant of choice for special events. Times have changed and so have taste. Revolving a restaurant isn't good enough to keep clientel. CK's has announced it will close July 2013. The food is very good, but has lost it's relevance to today's customer. We will miss you CK's.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNice restaurant with subtleNice restaurant with subtle live music and a great view.
