Starbucks

Reviewed By PkFloydLvr2014 - Columbus, Ohio

In town for business, I visited this Starbucks six straight mornings shortly after opening. The folks are friendly, and has a comfortable, hometown feel.

However - and this is a real aggravation having managed restaurants many years ago - every morning customers were delayed because the front line was out of supplies of some sort. The counter staff then had to forage around the back of the store to re-provision the front or complete an order. On seperate orders I waited for cup carriers, oatmeal "fixings" and lids (not to mention the others in line).

On one occasion I was the only customer, yet a plain coffee and cereal took eight minutes after the order was taken while the hard working barista went to the back to find my items missing from the front.

The amount of wasted time for all involved is preventable if the previous day's closers stock the front of house. Additionally, the idea a restaurant has zero napkins is a mystery to me.

Don't let this dissuade you from coming to this Starbucks - it is just they can be more efficient for their morning business be prepping the night before. Things do happen, but this is a pattern that is easy to fix.

The Sandwich on Main

Reviewed By Coach T - Charleston, West Virginia

Great out door seating for Third Friday with live entertainment. They offer a ton of different sandwiches for everyone’s taste. The wait staff is friendly and very helpful. The decor is unique and is eye catching. They offer craft brews that, from being from up north (WV), were perfect to wash down the sandwiches and more. Definitely a good eats at a very unique restaurant.

This location is very popular because it is already getting very hot outside and the perfect solution is ice cream, right?!! Not known for the best flavor but famous for the ability to customize your ice cream exactly the way you want it - we want it our way, right? The service is friendly but slow. There is quite a bit of seating inside allows plenty of room to cool off and enjoy your purchase. They also sell water and drinks.

Attractive, eclectic restaurant housed in vintage Safety Harbor cottage. Decorated in "keys" marine style with live music makes it all the more enjoyable. Dinners were quite tasty and presented nicely. Service was personable, efficient and attentive. Try the bison chopped steak or the chicken breast wrapped in Westphalian ham--both were delicious and portions more than adequate. Wine list was sufficient to meet everyone's taste and wallet. The S African Chenin Blanc was a perfect accompaniment to the shrimp and grits as well as the scallops and shrimp over risotto. Meals are accompanied by a nice mixed green salad.
Definitely a dining destination.

Cafe Vino Tinto

Reviewed By Radiohutch - Safety Harbor, Florida

Recently, I had coffee with a group of 7 photographer friends after our sunrise photo shoot in charming Safety Harbor. You order at the outside counter and enjoy banter with owner, Logan Runnels. Seating is in an outdoor atmosphere. There are tables open, but under cover as well as outside. I had a Cashew Milk Late'. It was my first...a suggestion from a fellow photographer. It was sweet and delicious. Cafe Tinto also offers some specialty food items which I will have to try on my next visit. I am looking forward to it.

Reviewed By Timbuktuorbust - Camberley, United Kingdom

Three of us dined here one evening. Up market bistro atmosphere with nearly every table taken. Good ambience. My starter of pan seared foie gras served on bed of poached pears was divine! Somehow the message that our guest was gluten intolerant was not acted upon by server/kitchen as her starter included breadcrumb coated goats cheese. All credit given as an alternative was swiftly provided. The mains and desserts were excellent. Vraiment français.

Whistle Stop Grill & Bar

Reviewed By Mike C - Clearwater, Florida

This restaurant is an open air restaurant with sufficient coverage in case of inclement weather. This quaint place has plenty of options to choose from regarding menu options. You can’t go wrong with the hamburgers or fish tacos . Salads seem to be popular too. Mixed drinks , wine and beer can be ordered and the prices were reasonable. Parking can be a challenge during the peak season but generally is available.
