Great neighborhood seafood joint.. They greet you at the door and are genuinley happy you have chosen their restaurant. The Volcano Rolls are AWESOME - and that is just the start! The Beer is cold, the food is hot and the people are great! We met Rosie & Carl out surfing. They are also members of our local Surfrider chapter. They have done so much for our club we had to come check our their place. Boy are we happy we did - we surely didn't know what we were missing. Highly recommend you visit them.
Rosie's, Love it! Great Seafood/great restaurant!. Rosie's our favorite seafood restaurant. Why would anyone pay a fortune to get great seafood? Rosie's is not the average, overpriced, pompous restaurant you can find on the beach. It's a neighborhood "whole in the wall" restaurant locals go to. Prices are very reasonable, the wait staff a hoot as is Rosie. We always have a great time eating there "smoozing" with everyone including Rosie. You can tell when you go in that you are going to be "taken care of!" You can keep the small plated, foo-foo food. I love the coconut shrimp w/ the Pina Colada dipping sauce. Their clam chowder is also great. The telling of a great place is when you see someone getting a dish you didn't order, you feel you've missed something. Make sure you say hi to Rosie (I'm sure she'll come to your table).
once you go there they know you for life. Ok! Guys if you are looking for someone to talk to and have great food while doing it, this is the place to go. The staff at Rosie's will remember you ever time you come in. I am a very picky eater and every time I go to Rosie's I feel that they know us. Before we even sit down they know what it is we drink and have it ready for us. And to rebut what the other reviews say, it is true!! Yes it is not your TIE and JACKET kind of place but if you want to wear it they wont say anything they welcome all walks of life and never look down on anyone for what they are out side of the restaurant. They are there to make you smile when you walk in and they will do anything they can to make sure you are smiling more when you leave. And if you ever have an issue Rosie the owner is always there and willing to talk to you and make things right. I have been going to Rosie's since December of 05 and I must say that I am very happy when I leave there. I enjoy every minute I am in there. The food is always the way we want it good and hot. The people there are friendly and they work very hard to keep you coming back. And further more EVERY place you go to is not for every ones taste! Some people like the stiff neck places and SORRY you will not find that here but you will find good food, fun times, great friendly service, and good whole some laughing. I Highly Recommend that you try them out and see if they are your type of people and hopefully you enjoy them as much as I do.
AVOID ANY DAY.
I HAD THE MISFORTUNE OF TRYING TO HAVE DINNER AT THIS SHACK LAST NIGHT. LET ME SAY SHACK IS THE PROPER WORD. THE FOOD I DID ORDER WAS COLD. I REQUESTED FRESH LITTLE NECK CLAMS AND WAS SERVED FROZEN ONES. I SURELY CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE. THE SOUP WAS SERVED COLD.
WITH COLD SOUP AND FROZEN CLAMS I DID NOT TAKE A CHANCE ON ORDERING AN ENTREE
Affordable seafood with Family Service Style!. After dealing with major seafood chain disappointments, I finally found a place where I can have seafood at acceptable prices without some server aka salesperson in my face trying to sell me more food than I want. The commercial coldness is far away in this place replaced with the warmth of wood paneled walls, ocean-themed decor and down-to-earth servers who care more about you then their ticket sales. You aren't a table number here, you are a neighbor and the prices are extremely fair allowing you the luxury of ordering fresh fish and lobster without a special occasion. If you are looking for overpriced menus, trendy sales pitches, pushy servers and a two hour wait, than Rosies isn't for you. However, if you want to eat at a place that remembers your face, pleases your seafood cravings, and has fun doing it at a reasonable price then check it out.
don't waste your time.
if you are looking for wicked good seafood in the tampa bay area try Boston Cooker
a lot more food, better service, and much nicer in appearance for the same price.
also don't bother trying to use an entertainment discount.
peortions are much smaller with a discount card. place needs to be remodeled. servers appear to be either biker chicks or have served more time than food. may not leave hungry but definitely not full. charge extra if you want a roll with dinner $1.25 even the tonic was flat
