American
At Barterhouse Ybor, Inventive American cuisine and imaginative craft cocktails are the stars of this elevated-yet-cozy bar and eatery. Located just steps away from the 8th Avenue trolley in Historic Ybor, Barterhouse is home to sustainably curated plates and a fancy feeling of nostalgia. The moment you become our guest, you’ll be met with a warm dining room emphasized by an open chef’s kitchen, fashioned to delight and inspire.

Tampa’s farm community is the heart of everything we do at Barterhouse. Our philosophy surrounds the idea that not all ingredients are created equal, and if we eat good, we’re doing good, too. Seafood will reign at the Barterhouse as well, with local Cedar Key or Panacea Oysters and wild caught shrimp straight from the Gulf or Atlantic on the menu.

We encourage you to lounge at our speakeasy-inspired bar, stocked with local brews, fine wine by the glass and classic 1940’s libations with a modern twist.

3rd time here and still amazing. Amanda remembered us and our drinks and the bartender makes pisco sour with real egg. Great ambiance and quieter end of ybor. Love it! 2 pigs on a date, pork shank, and wagyu beef faves.

Wasn’t too impressed with the brunch. I got the lemon ricotta pancakes and not only were they slightly burnt, but I was expecting much more on the plate. I know at other restaurants where I have ordered this dish it comes with toppings such as Leon curd and a generally eye pleasing presentation. I felt like this was just three thin pancakes on a plate. I didn’t taste lemon at all and the ricotta was minimal. I was honestly disappointed! Maybe something else on the menu would have been better but I expected more from this highly recommended spot.

My wife and I, who live in Palm Harbor, met our daughter, who lives in Riverview, here for brunch. This was highly rated on Yelp and it exceeded expectations. Everything from the food and service to the cocktails and music being played were on point. We are already planning to return with our friends for dinner in the near future. I'm glad to see Ybor is becoming more than just a late night party spot and look forward to venturing out there as the pandemic ends.

We went for brunch. The food was delicious every single thing we ordered was a hit. We got the eggs Benedict the biscuits and gravy and cheese grits. We also got the “Listen Linda” which is on the dinner menu but if you like spicy tequila this is a must. The food was so good we got a chicken biscuit to go for later.

If you love have a special place in your heart for upscale southern breakfast this place is for you.

Overall great place. Food and drinks were amazing.
Our server was awesome, knowledgeable and charismatic.
The only downfall a little is while they set up a little candle which is a GREAT touch the LED spotlight over the side tables is simply too bright and blinding. We asked if they could be dimmed but they never were.

Fantastic! Highlight was the pork shank glazed with tamarind. The taste of the oysters were elevated by the Mignonette sauce with cucumber. The dates wrapped in bacon with chorizo were exceptional.
We will be back!!

New favorite spot for dinner! A total gem. The food was some of the best we’ve had in the Tampa area. Our favorites were the octopus (so so good!!!), the fresh catch (incredible grouper), and our spicy habanero tequila drinks. Love the vibe. We both agreed it feels like you’re in a New York cocktail/jazz bar. Kristie was an amazing server and sommelier. Will be back very soon.
