Currents sweeps taste buds out to sea on a wave of tasty seafood and carefully crafted gourmet fare. Diners can search the menu to locate flavorful starters such as a plate of prosciutto-wrapped shrimp ($9.80), brie with pesto and almonds ($9.30), or the snails leslie served in brandy with toast points ($7.90). A bowl of lobster-and-crab bisque ($6) could inspire your mouth to throw itself hungrily at New York strip steak ($22.50) or meatloaf in hoisin barbecue sauce ($10.90), although it might prefer to stick with water-related edibles such as the seared salmon ($17.50). Currents boasts an array of red, white, and sparkling wines for cuisine coupling, and also treats diners to a full bar featuring fine brews, dessert drinks, cocktails, and specialty martinis such as the double bubble tini ($8), a mix of Three-O Bubble vodka and pink lemonade.
Belwood’s Irish Pub has a way of making guests feel lucky. Lucky enough, in some cases, to attempt the pub’s notorious Atomic Wing Challenge, which requires one to polish off a plate of blazingly hot Atomic wings in 10 minutes or less. Such a feat earns its conqueror a $25 paid tab and a photo on the Atomic wall of fame. If the wings prove too daunting, there’s always a menu of burgers, sandwiches, fried appetizers, and salads to appease all types of cravings.
If you’re hunting for gold at Belwood’s, it’s best not to look for the familiar shapes of coins. Check the bar, however, and you’ll find 16 draft beers pouring into frosty pint glasses. These glasses clink together in celebration of a well-thrown dart, a pocketed eight ball, or a touchdown displayed on one of the pub’s television.
The Pint and Brew corrals pale ales, stouts, pilsners, and wheat beers from area breweries, providing visitors with a one-stop shop for Tampa Bay's brews. Here, customers can belly up to the 42-foot wooden bar inside the 1,400-square-foot facility, sipping on beers from local craft breweries, including Barley Mow Brewery, Cigar City Brewing, 7venth Sun Brewery, and Saint Somewhere Brewing Company. No matter the brew, The Pint and Brew's staff members love talking beer and are happy to strike up a conversation. However, they also encourage patrons to participate in games of shuffleboard, ring toss, or Duck, Duck, Gose.
Named after an ill-fated County Mayo native who boarded the Titanic en route to America, Peggy O'Neills carries on its namesake's quest to intermingle Irish and American cultures. Nestled in the wood-paneled pub, guests can nurse pints of Guinness amid Celtic-style filigree, vintage irish posters, and old-timey tankards lining the walls. An eclectic menu of pub fare spans the globe with hand-pressed burgers, cuban sandwiches, and fish tacos. Spirits make their way into many of the dishes, including bangers and mash and shepherd's pie—both flavored with Guinness stout—as well as Southern Comfort pork loin and Feckin steak infused with irish whiskey. Drinks speak for themselves at the full bar, where bartenders mix up Mama O'Neill’s irish coffee with whiskey and crème de menthe and the Golden margarita, which is made with freshly squeezed fruit, Grand Marnier, and freshly mined gold ore.
Live music fills the air every Monday–Saturday evening, thanks to local groups and a karaoke machine. A bank of 43 TVs lines the bar and dining room, letting patrons cheer on their favorite sports teams or loudly root for underdog Wile E. Coyote to finally end The Road Runner's winning streak.

Wine & Brew's diverse clientele include couples cozying up to tables for date nights or groups of friends chattering against a backdrop of local artwork displayed and sold by the artists themselves.
