Voted Best Seafood Restaurant in Tampa by Citysearch, Splash! An Ocean Grill proffers a rotating menu that’s consistently drenched in salmon, lobster, shrimp, and mussels. Dinner diners can practice fancy fork dives into the soft surface of sesame-hoisin salmon, baked on real cedar for a burst of smoky flavor that will have taste buds raising the roof ($26). Or, for protein plucked from dry ground, patrons can savor a hand-cut and oak-grilled filet mignon ($26 for a 6-ounce; $30 for an 8-ounce).
Break from noontime rock-paper-scissors matches to nosh on a corned-beef reuben panini ($9.99), or snoop on a platter of cioppino, which unites fresh grouper, salmon, corvina, mussels, and shrimp in a zesty tomato broth on a bed of linguini ($26). Brunch chefs serve trios of made-from-scratch pancakes ($6) alongside less-sweet treats, such as the Block Island benedict—a toasted english muffin stacked high with grilled asparagus, poached eggs, and Maine-lobster knuckle and claw meat, all drizzled with savory béarnaise ($16).
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?"
