If you come here for the food, You are at the wrong place. The $18 burger did not worth it, The Asian Hot Pots are insulting to Asian people, It's just a over priced of $25 salty noodle soup with almost nothing in it but some noodles with tiny shrimps or meat, Another entree: Salmon with very oily kale and very salty ??? Also the dishes and pots damaged with chips! Really? This is not a hole in the wall, It is a place charge 20 plus to 30 plus for a entree. Over all: The best thing about this father's day dinner is the service, She was great!

This was our first time at Casey’s and we came away very satisfied and happy! We had mussels, fried calamari and the brussels sprouts. The Pomodoro sauce on the mussels was excellent and along with a side order of bread was almost a meal in itself. The fried squid was a generous portion and very tasty with a sweet spicy chili sauce. The Brussels sprouts With polenta were outstanding, and we ordered them on the recommendation of the manager of the restaurant, Lonnie, who was very friendly and overall added to our dining experience, my only complaint was that the music was too loud but I think we might’ve been seated right below a speaker. We both had craft cocktails, and they were also outstanding! I had a BlackBerry love which was not sweet and was absolutely delicious. The only reason that five stars were not given is we like to come back to a place a second time to make sure they are consistent before we give five stars, otherwise it was great!

I reserved a table for my mom's birthday on a Saturday evening and everything was great! We ordered a bunch of shareable items and everything was tasty and fun! I was very pleased with the quality and selection of food. We were a party of 7 and there was something for everyone's taste.
The cocktails were delicious and Kristian our server even brought a special birthday cocktail out for our mom. He was a real gem very professional and sweet. They have a great staff! Not all rude and aloof like a lot of these new restaurants opening in Tampa lately.
Our food came out quickly and our party happily munched and passed food around for everyone to try. They also had a great selection of craft beer for a reasonable price. The ambience was lively with great lighting and we dug the music that was playing. We will definitely be back even for a just a quick lunch (that lobster roll won't leave my brain alone I need another one). Thank you Casey's for making our mom's birthday special she had a blast!

Food was fine, but the drink service was awful. Cocktails took a long time, and then not delivered together. Ordered wine after appetizers and didn’t get it until we were done with our entrees. Bartenders seemed more interested in chatting with customers than making drinks.

I should say this was our third visit but it has been months since the last. No fault of Casey’s CBK, time and life happened. We visited on a Saturday evening and were seated on arrival with no waiting. We went knowing craft cocktails are a specialty and are worth a visit on their own. I ordered a Black Manhattan and my wife had a blackberry cocktail from the menu. Both were good drinks and mixed with care. As a comparison, we visit NYC on a regular basis and frequent many of the cocktail bars there, Death & Co., Raines, Bathtub Gin, PDT, and others, and Casey’s team matches those place in terms of quality. I noticed they carry many but not all the odd mixers but chances are they’ll have something for you. We wanted simple food and I had the fish and chips and my wife the asian buns. Again, good food well prepared and served hot and in good time. We’ll be back and hopefully sooner than a few months interval. Good spot for Tampa and really good spot this far north, worth the drive.

Never disappointed with the food or the service. Great for anything from sliders to steak each with a twist from chef Casey that keeps you guessing. The smoke infused bourbons are an outstanding acvompaniment to any meal.

We heard from friends about Casey's Craft Kitchen and decided to give it a try. Wow! We were blown away by the creativity of the menu and the flavors of our meals. Craft cocktails are made with fresh fruit and are unique and delicious. We had the Pork tenderloin, bone in Wagyu Pork chop , and Pasta Rataouille. Generous portions with amazing flavors. Service was very good and the Chef came by to get our opinions on our meals.
We now have a new favorite local restaurant.

Our third visit to Casey's and (regrettably) a real disappointment, as we brought along friends as "first time" visitors to this Restaurant. Waiter was great, but service was VERY slow, music way too loud to have a reasonable conversation, prices were way too high in terms of overall value/portion size. And to top it off, one of our friends (after waiting almost an hour for our main courses to arrive) had to send her shrimp (& grits) back, as the shrimp just didn't taste right. While the waiter refunded the cost of her meal, we expected (but never received) a visit from the Chef OR at least the Manager to talk about the shrimp disappointment. Unlikely to return, which is a real shame for all of us, as it's such a convenient location.

Great food! I love this place being in the neighborhood. Can come here for every occasion, to show off the new hot local eatery, after work cocktail and appetizer, celebratory dinners, or any romantic dates. Service is always on point, and management are always very accommodating. And don’t forget about their amazing hand crafted cocktails. I can’t get enough of this place!

Being a so called “hardcore foodie” my experience at Casey’s Craft Bar Kitchen was
None of the less impeccable. Food seems “and I found out Is” very farm to table with a very modern twist. Needless to say as well the cocktails were fresh and vibrant and is nice to see the cocktail menu is just creative as the kitchen menu. Highly recommended.

We have eaten here many times and always had an excellent experience. However this time was different , they offered a special “Easter brunch” which consisted of a lobster Benedict and turkey club....that’s it....they were not prepared when they opened and through out our meal...there was no special menu and it took more than 1hour and 35 minutes for the meal and we did not have dessert . The restaurant was never more than half full and they appeared to have adequate staffing as far as servers. The food was averagely best and extremely expensive for the portions. Having to wait at least 30 minutes to receive appetizers and another 30 minutes after we finished the appetizer to receive the entree.

Since we have had good meals here in the past we may give them another chance ....but if we were dining for the first time here we would not come back.

We have been here several times and never have had a great experience, however, the lobster rolls are good. We came here with a group of 6 on a Saturday night and the place was dead. We all ordered salads with exception of one person getting the lobster rolls and side of fries and one getting the elk. All the meals came except the elk and the fries and the waiter did not acknowledge it was missing. When a different waiter eventually came back we asked about the side of fries and she replied “did you really order fries?” After being shocked by her questioning our integrity, we told her yes we really ordered them. By this time we were all done eating and the elk and fries were still not delivered to the table. Approximately 10min after we asked about the fries, our waiter delivered the elk. My husband asked about the fries and the waiter replied “my bad, it only takes 5 seconds to make”. Five minutes later we get fries. I should also mention the person who had to wait for the elk had to wait 30min for a Beer which, we only got because one of us went to the bar and got it... the food is over priced for the quality, service, and location. We will not be coming back.

I was really excited to try out Casey‘s because of all the good reviews. Unfortunately several items were too salty for even a salt lover like me to eat. When the manager asked about the quality of the untouched food, we gave honest and respectful feedback. He suggested that many Americans like me don’t appreciate how salty Thai food is. Perhaps I could have forgiven the dinner, but the manager’s response to the fact that we could not eat it was what ruined this restaurant for me.

This restaurant was recommended by friends as a unique take on traditional cuisine. Our appetizer was the brussel sprouts I had the shrimp and grits; my wife had the crusted salmon; my son had the the stag (elk). Not to say the food was not good, but we were not overwhelmed as our friends had been previously. I had asked for the shrimp to be peeled, it was done so poorly. My wife's salmon was lacking in overall flavor and my son's elk was overly tough when cooked medium. While we will most likely not return, we feel the experience was worth the visit.

It's the best restaurant around, bar none. My wife and I really enjoy the ambiance and the general vibe. They have a great bar program, with craft cocktails and lots of variety. The food is out of this world. The chef is always coming up with something new and different and most of all FRESH. He does a lot with local sources and even some wild game on occasion. They also have great servers and managers that care. Our main reason for going the other night was the great jazz band that they had playing there. The food and drink gets us there, but the great music makes us stay out past our bed time!

I ordered the fish n chips, would much rather of had more fish and less chips. They give you a mountain of French fries, a ridiculous waste of potatoes! The wild mushroom quinoa was underwhelming, wouldn't get it again. They need to get some different side dishes. It's a nice place, but overpriced for what you get in my opinion.

This is the new gem of the Carrollwood/ Lutz area. The ambience is amazing. Its a mixture of modern romantic to a contemporary get together. Service was amazing from the hosts at the front door, servers very knowledgeable about drinks and food. One of the bartenders came out and talked to me about all the bourbon and whiskey drinks they had to offer and the passion and knowledge he gave made me want to try it all. The food was amazing also, I had the shrimp and grits and was surprised of how large the prawns were and how rich and fresh the grits were. My girlfriend got the Steak Hot Pot which was a pho style dish which she loved! It was flavorful full of vegetables and the steak was cooked perfectly. I recommend for everyone to check out and I will definitely be back soon.
