My fiancé and I go to Fly Bar every Wednesday night for the live jazz duo. The music is perfect for the venue and they change up the playlist regularly, covering pop and indie songs in an original way. Luckily, Valentine’s Day landed on a Wednesday this year and as always, Fly Bar delivered. The service at Fly Bar was fantastic and the kitchen was really quick with the food even though they were pretty busy. We’ve tried probably 7 different menu items and everything has been delicious. The mac n cheese and the Brussels sprouts are my favorites.

We were their on a Monday Night. The waitress made sure we took advantage of the last few minutes of the happy hour specials available once we were seated. The food was delicious and the service attentive. We were surprised and pleased about the live musician that came on stage half way thru our time there.

While in Tampa for a conference, we happened upon Fly and had the most wonderful dining experience. Their Sangria was the best I have ever had and the appetizers were terrific. We then ordered a meal - so delicious and unique. Thank you for making a Tennessean feel at home!

Reservations for 8 and we were set in a booth! When I explained that there was no way a booth set for 4 could accommodate 8, hostess said “oh well, that’s what we always do”.
Shame on you! Her response - you can wait for other tables to clear. So why did I bother making my birthday dinner reservations if you didn’t bother to accommodate? Staff is awful! Pretentious, unfriendly and given the new competition in the neighborhood, why bother ? This venue better step up the customer service!!!

Poor service, my three friends were completely done with your dinner before my dinner came out and we had asked numerous times. They have a very small kitchen and appears they make like one meal at a time. They weren't overly busy so this should not of happened. Also portions are extremely small top of sized which is fine but the prices were more for larger portions. There's too many great places in Tampa to go to now I would not recommend this for food or for drinks as my husband's cocktail was in the size of a juice glass.

My daughter and I happen to be in Tampa for New Year’s Eve. Lyft driver recommended we go here. It’s was ok. Menu not very big but the tuna appetizer was good. Also got the fries... too much for two people. The hanger steak was good but very small portion. Drinks were good. Service was great til they got busy and then I felt like we were forgotten!! Music was wayyy too loud!! Hard to have any kind of conversation!! Didn’t stay to ring in New Years!

Fly Bar is one of my favorite spots and it never disappoints! I have dined there often for dinner with friends or before shows at the Straz Center. You can’t beat the $5 sangria and half price bar fare—those sliders and the truffle Mac & cheese...so delicious. Actually, we’ve never had a bad dish! Definitely will return!
