About the restaurant
Featured in Food & Wine Magazine, The Wine Enthusiast, and Tampa Bay Times, In Between Days is Florida's first craft sake house and Tokyo-style listening bar. Our sake list is one of the most diverse on the East Coast and is curated by our in-house sake sommelier Noah Sain. Inspired by the underground listening bars of Tokyo, our little house is warmed by intimate lighting and analog sounds sent through a pair of Klipsch Cornwalls. Oil lanterns cascade amber light while sake is poured into eager glasses. We play full sides. Our sake is chilled. Our oysters are served in the classic French style. It’s not Tokyo, but it’s close.

With an ever-rotating menu of sake, sake cocktails, and tasty plates, In Between Days offers a truly unique experience in the Tampa Bay area. Just off the hustle of Central Ave.

A small Eclectic Japanese restaurant with an excellent Vibe! The Udon noodles dish and the Gyoza were my favorites. The bartender crafted some saki old fashions. Delicious!! We will be going back THANK YOU!

About the restaurant
If you live in South St. Pete, you know there are few good restaurants nearby. We’re ready to change that.

Whether you want to treat yourself after a long day or unwind in our backyard tiki bar, Mullet’s is about to be your new favorite spot for flavorful seafood fare and sharing a beer amongst friends (or strangers).

Bring your family, your friends, and your mullet.

Currently we cannot guarantee a specific seating section (indoor or outdoor) nor a specific table preference. All bar seats are held nightly for walk-in diners and all other seating is available to reserve. If you are running late, we hold the table for a grace period of 15 minutes before offering the reservation to our waitlist. Reservations are recommended, but we gladly accept walk-ins. For all reservations of 10 or more, please notify the restaurant.

Guests have a maximum of a 2 hour table time in order for us to accommodate all of our reservations.

We love Sea Dog! It's a great place to bring the kids - bring a bunch of singles to cash in for quarters and they will keep themselves busy at the arcade for hours while you eat and socialize. The food is always awesome and I love their Captain Eli's cream soda. We always make sure to stop here on vacation

About the restaurant
Bacon Bitch is a one of a kind dining experience, dismissing the idea that breakfast has to be boring. From the moment you walk up to the host stand, you are in for a fun brunch! The food ranges from bacon, egg,and cheeses to grilled salmon sandwich. You may come for the bacon but you are guaranteed to keep coming back for the bitches.
