About Cigar City Brewpub
Cigar City Brewpub opened April 1st 2013 with the simple goal of giving Tampa great food to go with great beer. Our menu is a little Cuban, a little Southern, a little Italian and all Tampa. We aim to provide a welcome and casual environment for our guests to enjoy a good time with their friends and family.
We firmly believe that any one item is nothing more than a sum total of its details, from the obvious to the subtle. With that in mind it is our attempt to consider every detail as we craft your food and beverages alike. From house-made pickles to the house-made soda, we strive to consider every detail. Our beer is made with food in mind and our food is made for beer. Our passion and dedication to our craft drives us in everything we do.

Cigar City Brewpub Ratings and Reviews
Had no idea they brewed that many beers on location. Good was amazing as well
Great food & great beer! Try the Maduro!
Great food & great beer! Try the Maduro!
Great menu and great beer!
We loved the Cuban-themed menu with new options (for this family from NE). They had something for every taste, including the kids. Because we had kids (I assume), they put us in the back, dark corner of the restaurant and no one was around but it was fine. The waitress was attentive and helpful and the food came out quickly, hot, and delicious. There was definitely a nice after-work crowd enjoying the bar. Prices were very reasonable for food quality and atmosphere. We would definitely return if in the area again.
Really enjoyed it.
The food was quite good and their beers are great. Fresh Jai Alai IPA is outstanding. The black bean cakes and yuca fries appetizers were highlights.
Pretty Good, Kinda Expensive, Kinda Slow
A lot of what we ordered was really really tasty. The service was kind of slow, refills were slow, but I would go back. The Caprese Salad is really good, Chicharrones are awesome! I would pass on the Cuban Empanada, sounded amazing but was not.

Fabulous wings and brews. Happy hour is very happy. Great to hit before a plane ride home.
Tampa's Finest Craft Beer Selection!
Best craft to be found! Good was fabulous and Adam, our server, was the best. He knows his beer and food selection and was very attentive. Go there! You be disappointed!
Everyone deserves a mulligan. Everything ...
Everyone deserves a mulligan. Everything was off on this occasion. Beer took 25 minutes to come to the table and it came out warm. Food took over an hour to come to the table and it came it cold and cooked wrong (ordered a medium burger that came out well done and cold?!) Server was friendly, but absent. Manager never made it over to our table. I am a CCB fan but this night was horrible; not indicative of what I've come to expect.
Ship off for Sailor
Beer selection and staff was outstanding. The smoked fish dip solid, and if you are a Tampa native the Ropa Vieha was one of the best I've had in Tampa. We all went home with a belly full of food and growler's full of beer!
Way to loud inside & outside at 5pm on weekday
Only good if you really like craft beer and want to eat. Not worth the drive if you only want to taste beer. Go to their main location in West Tampa.
Service, beer, and atmosphere are great.
Service, beer, and atmosphere are great.
Both meals were excellent.
The shrimp and grits had huge, sweet shrimp and my husband raved about his ropa vieja.
We visited for Valentine's Day, the special was awesome and cooked right, the beer was great as always, our server was spot on and friendly, a good experience, I will return for sure.
I really wanted to like it
So, i was in from out of town and i really wanted to drink some Cigar City beer and visit their brewpub. The beer was great but everything else was a let down. Food was just so-so...my wife and kids left most of theirs. Service was very unpolished and a little scattered, and the restaurant told me on the phone that they couldnt take a reservation because of some big parties. After we made a reservation on open table, we showed up to find plenty of tables. I really wanted to like it but would not return. Sorry Cigar City...i think you should stick to beer.
Good micro brew beers and food
Large selection of locally brewed beers. Nice variety of food also
It was okay
I was there once before and better service. Don't know if it was the time of day or what. I went for lunch with my sisters and it was great. Went for dinner with my 2 sons to celebrate my oldest birthday and the food was not so great. The yuca fritas were great, the chicharones were over salted, my sons potato was suppose to be mash instead it came with potato wedges which were not good according to him. My other son had broccolini and it was hard, barely cooked. Then they proceeded to change my sons wedges with what he wanted was plantains. They came out cold. Although at the end they brought him fresh ones he had already finished with his steak. Steak was dry no sauce was offered. Soda was flat, later to find out something was wrong with the machine. This was on a Friday evening, was busy but not packed there were empty tables. So I am not sure why all the errors. Not sure I will be returning anytime soon. Was disappointed.
Great restaurant with excellent seafood and solid burgers. Kids menu was also solid.
nice selection of local brews, lots to try. Good food. Burgers were great. Nice to find a good bar with good food and beer.

Excellent brews but the food is lacking. Could be much better -calamari was undercooked. Burgers were just OK. They need a new chef and menu before I would go back. Except for a beer.
Great beer of course, nice place too.
We didn't eat, but this stupid rating page doesn't have an N/A for food and made me rate the food even though I didn't have any. I hosted an informal apres-lunch business meeting, we sat outside. The service was good, the beer was great, I look forward to trying the food - the menu is very interesting, maybe even eclectic. I will return, and look forward to it.

Food was B+, service was strong, microbrew beers were outstanding as were the local taps
Good Food and Service
Was our first time back to the restaurant in over a year, menu has changed a little, but the food was still good as was the service. My only complaint would be that they had run out of a couple of the beers they had on the menu, including a sour ale that I had wanted to try.

A fun bar-type atmosphere, although it was not too loud to have a conversation. The food was solid, and the beer was great. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Good food, awesome beer and great service. Definitely will be back.
Had a great evening meal with another couple. My Hamburger was done to perfection and it was moist and tasty. Our friend's wife had the pork chops which I tried and it was moist and tender. All the beer I tried, on the flight was very tasty especially the Good Gourd Pumpkin. Will definitely return.

First time on 8/28. Great food! Great beer! Great service! Will definitely go again...& again!
Cigar City Brewpub
I like Cigar City Brews and have always wanted to check out the brewpub. Had a bunch of Air Force friends in town and decided to try it out. Perfect spot for a get-together. Nice separate area for 2 groups, not too noisy for us or for us to bother other tables. Most of us have lived overseas and like beers with substance and yours did not disappoint. Our server was very knowledgeable and recommended some good picks. Appreciate the sample sizes too! Burgers were great--interesting toppings that worked well together and we all loved the chips. I've googled Providence Cattle to see if I can buy it local for myself. All in all, a great night out!
Great food and service
My husband and I went to Cigar City Brewpub for a date night. We made reservations although it was early and we didn't really need one. Our server was attentive and very knowledgeable. The calamari and blue cheese bacon burger was absolutely delicious. I really loved the Plant City Punch cocktail. The only negative was a very large, noisy party seated near us. I know it's not really the Brewpub's fault but it was pretty obnoxious. Overall we had a great date and will visit again soon.
enjoyed our first visit
We met another couple at Cigar City Brewpub at their suggestion. We weren't sure how we were going to enjoy it as we don't smoke cigars or drink beer. We were surprised by the quality of the food, the portion size, and the unique latin twist on many standard fare items. We shared the black bean patties with a wonderful sauce as an appetizer. I enjoyed the sample of Florida Cracker beer but still had a glass of pinot grigio. My wife loved her balsamic tomato dish. I enjoyed my good old fashioned chicken sandwich...great toppings and sauce. We had the apple pie empanada ala mode. It was good and different than your typical apple pie. Our bill was $35. Pretty good value I think.

Beautifully presented and absolutely delicious food. Great selection of their signature craft beers. Friendly and competent service. And extremely cool and interesting decor. We can't wait to go back!
The menu is superb and offers a great variety of delicious small and main plates. The service in the dining area was much to be desired, but I have experienced impeccable service on previous visits while eating at the bar. Definitely a place worth checking out!!
Just another brew pub, and not a great one
I generally like Cigar City's brews, but the food was only so-so. I'd call it a small step up from any of the casual dining franchises like Chili's or Applebee's. Go somewhere else and drink the Cigar City brew there.
Great Place to hang with friends!
Always a great place to hang with friends. A little disappointed that they removed the special heads-on shrimp from the shrimp and grits dish, but I can see how that might drive a few customers to your grass-feed beef burgers instead. Always good beer on tap!
Delicious food, small beer list
Food was great, a group of 4 of us left with clean plates. The beer list was smaller Han I was expecting. All in all, would go again.

The staff was very accommodating after moving our large party inside from the hot patio. We will be back soon!
Great beer. Food not so much.
Large selection of beer on tap. Food is overpriced and bland. Disappointing. Stop here for a drink don't waste your time or money with anything else.
