    Battery is a very hot place to be. Difficult reservation to get. Dinner was delicious but service was just ok, likely because our waitress was also serving the party room behind us with 20ppl and so much of our food was wrong (asked for no parmesan on salad due to lactose issue and came with parmesan anyway; ordered hollandaise sauce w asparagus and it didn’t come). No big deal really, just a bit annoying for the price. Waitress was nice, other servers were helpful. Manager came over to ask how things were…Atmosphere is very loud, so don’t plan on a quiet dinner. But overall the food was great and it was a fun dinner vibe.

    The waiter was friendly but the service was SLOW. My husband ordered whisky- neat, and it came with a block of ice, when he requested that he wanted it neat, the waiter returned it to the bar and the bartender just took out the ice. If you know anything about whiskey, taking out the ice doesn’t make a pour neat. They couldn’t even tell him the price of one of the bottles for a pour and claimed that it’s not for sale after running around trying to figure it out. Also, I ordered crab Benedict’s and my eggs came out wayyyy over cooked. I don’t normally put bad reviews or complain but it was just a bunch of little things that totaled up to a very disappointing brunch.

    Place has a very cool vibe, bartender was rude, she acted like we were not even sitting in front her, didn’t ask if we needed any help choosing a drink or give any suggestions, guess we are spoiled at some of our other favorites. Food was pretty good, I would say as expected, price was fair.

    Ambiance is very nice and it's located right in Sparkman's Wharf. Bartenders could be nicer and servers faster. My steak ordered medium came medium well the last two visits. Charcuterie boards are good and the smoked old fashion is great.

    I didn’t start off too bad, she had the Seabass and I ordered the New York strip. What I couldn’t believe in this is where a fell apart is that they had brought out a ribeye steak. I can be blindfolded and tell the two different steaks apart. This is where it got awkward, the food runner came back from the kitchen and said they assured me it was a New York strip, then the server and then I asked for the manager. I have probably eaten over 300-400 New York strip in my time and worked at a Steakhouse in my younger years. it’s my favorite steak and it’s a very telling steak and texture. So awkward, now the 20-something yr old manager said that it was a New York strip! I hope his bosses read this. My girlfriend and I just couldn’t believe this was happening and he finally said he would redo it. However, the manager came back with the original steak from the kitchen and said that I could have it in the meantime lol. I said a hard ‘no thank you’. They finally came back with a real New York strip. The first steak was most definitely a ribeye so I just didn’t understand why they tried to shove this down like throat it made it very awkward experience.. i do badly wished I had got photos of these 2 steaks. I won’t be going back here.

    Some mishaps with the bar started our night off wrong but the manager owned the problem and remedied the problem as well as comping the drink. Food came out in a fair amount of time. Cook on the steak was spot on especially since I requested a light char. Well seasoned good cut of meat. Salmon was good and the lobster Mac and cheese is a must try. Great bourbon list

    I was on a business trip and met up with my daughter. She suggested Battery. She didn’t go wrong. The service and food were amazing. I had the Crab Cake Benedict and she had Shrimp and Grits. We also had the charcuterie board which was AMAZING. The craft cocktails were a very nice accompaniment to the food. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. I highly recommend.

    Made reservations at 7:15 inside due to the summer heat. Clearly the restaurant was overbooked as we waited 20 minutes. They talked us into sitting outside and threw in a bottle of wine which was nice but it was very humid outside and was not the best dining experience. My husband sea bass and my rigatoni was not good unfortunately. We have been here before and had a much better experience. We were having dinner with friends who had never been to the battery but I feel it was not the best experience and not sure we or they will go back. Service was great but I was disappointed when I made reservations well in advanced to wait 20 minutes and then were told there were 3 parties waiting for an inside table and we would have to wait another hour for inside seating Why have a reservation then????

    We finally made time to visit this new spot in Channelside. We made reservations and our table was ready when we got there. We enjoyed perusing the vast array of quality liquors offered as well as the bartenders highlights on the drink menu. We chose a French75 and it was the very best I've had. We started with a dozen oysters, this week they had some very flavourful small oysters for $34 00 for 12. Not a great value but they were fresh and tasty and came with a cocktail sauce heavy on the horseradish and a nice vinegrette with fresh shallots. The charcuterie offerings are a great value. The $19.00 choose three, allowed us to get two cheeses and 1 protein and enjoy the arrany of fruits, vegetables, nuts, jams, honey and bread that accompanied the board. The restaurant offers a nice main course of protein and vegetarian options as well as small plates which we decided to try two of. I will mention here that seeking a single glass of wine from the wine list posed challenges as there are very limited selections we opted for the french rose from france, it went well with our choices.. We ordered the deviled egg trio and the seafood stuffed jalapeños, take a pass on the artfully presented deviled egg and opt for the jalapeños. But there are great selections yet to try and we will be back to do so. Do note that if you are looking for a quiet retreat, go elsewhere, the sound bounces off the industrial ceiling and concrete floor, the music competes with the conversation. At 63, I am most likely more comfortable in a quite setting so keep that in mind, its a lively place. We will go back, intrigued by other options on the menu.

    Food was excellent but service all around was extremely slow. 15 minutes for a drink once ordered and 40+ for food when there were only 6 other tables all small parties. Great ambiance, but the pace definitely needs improvement.

    They did NOT have the bourbon selection that had been touted. And they were out of several items on their limited menu. The atmosphere was nice, upscale. So were the prices, but sadly, not the food... Would not recommend in the future.

    I was surprised that the Sea Bass was fried? The menu did not say that, I’ve never had any restaurant serve fried Sea Bass esp when it’s a $49 menu item. I guess it’s partially my fault for not asking if it was fried but still. Aside from that the service was good, ambience was good…. Overall a nice place.

    Our Waitress from RI was good and so was the charcuterie board and desert. That being said, six dinners for six people were ordered. The meals came out in sets of two, with about eight minutes in between each drop off. Meaning the last meal was served to two of the guest 16 minutes after the first group received their meals. This was noted to the waitress, that said the manager knew and was in the kitchen trying to fix the problems. The ribeye was cooked to a medium well done vs a medium rare that was ordered. The waitress offered a new one but based on the time intervals between the meals already it was decided to just eat the overcooked steak and enjoy the company. The Rigatoni was under cooked. Not once did a manger come by the table. I would be hard pressed to return.

    BatteryResponded on August 5, 2022Thank you for coming in and giving us a try! I am terribly sorry that your evening did not go better. While we were struggling on the evening in question, it is no excuse for substandard food and timeliness. I was unfortunately out of town, but would have loved to have met you and your guests. I do hope you would reach out and allow us a second opportunity to exceed expectations! Michael - General Manager (813) 498-0008

    This location is in the perfect spot! I overall loved the vibe but had some concerns and issues. 1. My reservation time was not met and the table I asked for was not given. I requested a high top and reserved it. I even called ahead of time and requested a high top. I was told I would be accommodated. When I got to the hose stand, I was greeted by a lovely blonde women who explained they didn’t have a high top available and could seat me somewhere else. In the end I was sat in the very back corner of the restaurant. 2. The charcuterie boards are AMAZING. 3. I ordered the salmon and ended up sending it back as it was to crispy and flavorless. 4. I know this is a busy location but the lack of attention we received from the server was ridiculous. I think this is the perfect spot for a good charcuterie board and wine. Not the best for dinner time as it is loud and not a lot of attention is given to the customer
