I LOVE brunch! There are so many choices in the Tampa Bay area for a great brunch, I am also always on the lookout for a fun spot. This past weekend my friend Jamie and I had the pleasure of trying the newly revamped brunch buffet at Beach Bar | Restaurant on the Courtney Campbell Causeway. The restaurant is attached to the Bay Harbour hotel which overlooks Tampa Bay.
I could stop right here. They make them to order and even include blueberries and/or raspberries!
Their location overlooking Tampa Bay is perfect! It saves you the drive of going all the way out to the beach on the gulf, but brings the view right to you!
Hot buffet items
What an amazing variety of delicious foods ready to eat! They had veggies, mashed potatoes, shrimp and grits, bacon, eggs, and even chicken and waffles! It was my first true chicken and waffles experience (can you believe it??), and they were amazing!
This was my first stop on my first trip through the line. A properly made omelet with personalized toppings is always better when someone else makes it!
Don’t skimp on the protein! The ham and prime rib are carved fresh to order!
There was a beautiful selection of fresh fruit including cantaloupe, pineapple, blueberries, watermelon, and honeydew melon.
Caesar salad, green salad, and tortellini to accompany the breakfast items
I’m not a huge seafood fan, but my friend Jamie sampled the crab legs and shrimp for us! They had a wide variety of seafood choices including crab legs, oysters, and shrimp!
Sweets, Muffins, and Pastries
I’m a sucker for sweets. I sampled an AMAZING lemon bar, and I simply cannot believe that I forgot to go back for all of their chocolatey goodness!
In addition to the lovely buffet, you can enjoy music from the live band outside, and have your choice of seating inside or outside. If you are looking for a new place to try for a brunch in the Tampa area, Beach Bar | Restaurant has so much to offer! You can find more information on their website or Facebook page.
