The cool thing about Yelp is it’s a one-stop shop for everything. I use it primarily for restaurants in areas I’m traveling to or even looking for new restaurants for me to try in Tampa. I have several collections saved I can always refer to when I need a quick selection.

“It’s exciting to see such a great local representation of Tampa within our Top 100 Places to Eat in Florida. This list celebrates the highly-rated and beloved restaurants across the state, close to 20 of which are in Tampa Bay and the surrounding area this year!,” says Yelp Tampa Bay Community Manager Skylar Whitman. “From the iconic Oxford Exchange and Wright’s Gourmet House to Rice & Spice and Daily Eats, this list is really reflective of the places people are loving right now and spans a wide range of cuisines and types of dining establishments. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for these businesses in 2023 as people discover their new favorites through this list.”

Several Tampa Bay– and Orlando-area restaurants made the cut.
