Restaurant Of The Month
Tamiami Tap | 711 S Osprey Ave, Sarasota, FL 34236
Where the Word of Mouth restaurant used to be, Tamiami Tap has established itself in the community as the new downtown hot spot. This neighborhood bar has a coastal casual environment with indoor and outdoor seating options. Perfect for gathering with friends, there are patio games and a large projector screen set up outside to watch sports games. Known for their craft beers and cocktails, Tamiami Tap does not disappoint with food options. Made to order fries, with an American-fare menu featuring vegan plates as well! Top it all off with "dirt and worms" dessert! Live music is played some nights that compliment the casual-coastal ambiance.
