    The atmosphere was romantic and soothing. The music was beautiful! The food was not very flavorful. And for it being Valentines night, I feel like the weight staff could have been dressed a little more professionally. Especially since the atmosphere was so classy. I can’t wait to go back and try a normal menu as opposed to the preset Valentines menu.

    I heard this restaurant was the sister restaurant of Bascom’s Chop House and their restaurant is one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to. Our server at K Club was excellent! Sorry I can’t remember his name but he did a fantastic job. Great personality and offered outstanding customer service! The meal was by far, one of the best ever. The soup was a lobster bisque and full of flavor without being too salty. Outstanding! Main course was the filet and it did not disappoint! Seared to perfection without too much salt but plenty of flavor. This was our first time here for dinner. We chose to celebrate Valentines Day at the K-Club and we chose wisely. Thank you all for a wonderful experience!

    We had such a great experience at K Club this past weekend. We went on Saturday evening to celebrate birthdays for me and my fiancé. We had excellent service both at the bar and our table for dinner. We had a party of four and each ordered different entrees to share. We had the filet, grouper, pasta bolenase and a shrimp entree as well. All were top notch! Fresh ingredients and all had a wonderful mix of flavors. The ambiance is great for date nights or get togethers with friends. We will definitely be back as I highly recommend!

    Disappointed - one of us didn’t like the sauce on the lamb. My crab topped grouper was overly peppery! The grouper did not have much flavor and the menu description mentioned some type of mango sauce, which was not on the plate at all. Initially our salads were brought without the dressing (which our server promptly went back and got for us). Just overall disappointing for a $75 meal at Christmas. I wish I had gone with another choice

    Special Thanksgiving Dinner buffet. Food was cold and turkey was chewy. Definitely not worth 60/person . Bar closed at 7 ish during our meal. The Host was extremely personable and the only positive experience. Staff was friendly.

    We visited for the Thanksgiving buffet. All items were fresh and delicious. Highly recommend. Only constructive criticism would be to have a turkey gravy available instead of beef gravy.

    This restaurant is more so for those staying at the hotel and would like something fast to eat. My partner and I was not greeted nor approached within 5 mins of seating. One glance at the menu and I decided it was over priced for something I can make at home. If you are a minority, I don’t suggest this place.

    Our meals were delicious. Creative recipes like fried deviled eggs! Not your ordinary bread service either. There was a hiccup with our entrees which was addressed before the plates were even on the table. My filet mignon was excellent, and served in an interesting way with the mashed potatoes and asparagus. The other meal was a thick pork chop which was also very, very good. Carly was an attentive server.

    Friend and I had dinner there last night, we started with Fried Green Tomatoes, we both loved them. Then she had the Grouper Picatta, cleaned her plate even the fried caperberries, I had the crusted scallops, very tasty extremely supple and succulent scallops. We each ordered a dessert, the Key Lime Pie and the Creme Brulee Tart, both were excellent and a perfect ending to our dinner. Will definitely go back to try more from their menu. Kudos to the Chef and many thanks to our server, Natalie, for being spot on.

    This is truly a hidden gem ....We were looking for a nice place near the St Pete/Clearwater airport to eat an appetizer and have a drink after my cousin's arrival. Now while the restaurant is located in a hotel lobby and the dining room is a bit sterile (in my opinion) it does have bright fun artwork and the back patio looks over a green space with pond. What is unassuming and surprising is the food... I worked 15 years in the restaurant industry in Atlanta and hands down I was super impressed. We had the fried green tomatoes for a starter which I love and these were the BEST. Greek salad course, perfectly chopped and dressed. The main course, the Grouper Piccata.... OMG, no words. Grouper tasted fresh and perfectly cooked with a seared outside and thick filet that just would fall apart with large dense pieces to scoop up with the fried caper berries (whole berries) and handmade pasta. Perfection. Only con I would say is that they didn't have inventory of prosecco splits and only offered one chardonnay by the glass which was average, The menu has lots of artisan craft or basic list of cocktails so was disappointed for not more in the WBTG offerings. We didn't make it up to Vantage Roof Top on this trip, more due to time and weather but will be back!

    Not only is this the best hotel restaurant I've ever eaten at, it is one of the best restaurants PERIOD. Seriously, the food, the service, and the ambiance are all top shelf. I had the fried green tomatoes appetizer and it was delicious. I followed that with their pork chop which was HUGE, perfectly prepared, and had a great presentation. For dessert, I tried their creme brulee, which was light and tasty covered with fresh fruit. Whether you're a hotel guest or not, I highly recommend giving K-Bar a try.

    TJ provided over-the-top service. He was very knowledgeable about the dishes, and spoke very highly about the Chef and the Hotel ownership. If I come back for a 2nd visit, it will be due in large part to the excellent service provided. Keep TJ, he’s a great value add to the Karol.

    This was our first time to the K Club Bar & Bistro. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was not busy. Our waiter was still learning but he was very nice and attentive. Their Salad is very tasty and nicely presented being wrapped in a thin slice of cucumber. Their signature entre of the Grouper was excellent as was the Stiped Bass entre. Overall very good dining experience. We sat inside but they have a very large outside covered dining area with views of a small lake. Later we went to the Rooftop Bar - just to see the view. This would be nice for drinks and appetizers with the expansive view of the Tampa Bay area.
