The sea has always been a mother figure to humanity, from incubating us in our earliest evolutionary stages, to calling to passive-aggressively say it's alright if we can't find time to visit. Reach out to the ocean with today’s Groupon to Splash! An Ocean Grill in Lutz. Choose between two options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of seafood dinner fare.
- For $7, you get $15 worth of seafood lunch or brunch fare.
Voted Best Seafood Restaurant in Tampa by Citysearch, Splash! An Ocean Grill invokes an evolving menu and keeps appetites on their toes with rotating nightly specials. Evening edibles scintillate the senses with delicacies such as the Hawaiian ahi tuna with sushi rice, wakame, and greens ($14), or the Athenian pasta with feta, kalamata olives, and the seeds of democracy festooning a bed of white-wine penne pasta ($12–$22/dinner, $8.99–$13.99/lunch). All aquatic entrees come oak-grilled, sealing in woody flavors and fire’s triumph over water in the elemental pecking order.
Lunch entrees satiate midday appetites with light fare, including the quiche and soup of the day ($8.99) or the apple and brie salad topped with focaccia croutons, walnuts, and a raspberry-parmesan balsamic vinaigrette ($7.99). On Sunday mornings, Splash! caters to the brunch crowd with a spread of delicious fare, heartier and more delicious than a lumberjack who's just inadvertently cut into a gushing maple-syrup mine. Wake up tongues with such gustatory alarm clocks as the Brooklyn Benedict, which assembles salmon, cream cheese, poached eggs and Béarnaise on a toasted bagel ($10), or the three-egg, goat-cheese omelette tossed with grilled asparagus and sun-dried tomatoes with a side of O’Brien potatoes and toast ($10).
Splash! An Ocean Grill
At Splash! An Ocean Grill, sounds of satisfaction emanate from guests nibbling on seared lobster, fish, or steak just like the sounds of the sea lapping the shore. A bar, located in the middle of the dining room, glows blue as soft lights evoke an under-the-waves mood and guests sip on a sweet cocktail or full-bodied wine while checking out the wall-mounted photographs. It's these details that inspired the Tampa Tribune to exclaim, "…Seafood done so well," Tampa Bay Illustrated to say, "Splash! shines like a spinning lure," and a mermaid off the bay to lament, "Why can't I grow legs?"
