    We always love eating at Coopers Hawk. We like so many things! My current favorite is Parmesan crusted grouper and the side salad I love the vinaigrette dressing so much! My husband loves the Parmesan shrimp scampi! The crème brûlée is to die for!!!

    We came for lunch and parked for free at their manned lot on Doyle Carlton. With reservations, we were seated promptly and were able to discourage them seating us upstairs so we could enjoy the downstairs view and open windows. The food was great and the waiter informative. It’s always a go-to for out of town guests.

    Fun restaurant to go to before a Lightning game! We enjoyed the fried oysters, and their take on a grilled cheese and a Cuban sandwich ... both were excellent. Also, had a great margarita, although a little on the pricey side for the size. Would definitely go there again!

    Ocean Prime did not disappoint. Our dinners were delicious. The smaller dining room was quieter than the larger dining area. Mary, our Server, was phenomenal. She was attentive without being annoying. She knows the menu so well, shared the information, listened to us and made perfect suggestions. She made a beautiful, delicious dinner and evening all the more special. I hope the management knows what a gem she is. And, she has a contagious smile.

    We sat in the dining room with the show. The show was great (we were seated beside the stage and under a speaker, and it was a bit loud). The food was fantastic. We had the chopped tomato salad and the house salads, scallops, garlic shrimp, and beef empanadas for our appetizers, all which were delicious. The main courses were generously sized and scrumptious.
