This is really great support of all the wonderful local restaurants in the Bay area.

My all-time favorite BBQ restaurant is Hungry Harry's in Land O Lakes. But if you're looking for a frou frou experience or hoity toity atmosphere, don't go. You may see some of Tampa's elite there, though.

I hope I can come back later and add some others...no time left presently.

It is! My office has gone there the past two years for our Christmas party, and I try and sneak in a couple times in between.

Cost depends on what you get. The full shebang (appetizer, entree, dessert, and drinks) is about $70 per person, but like I said - worth the treat. And if you enjoy seafood, DO NOT miss their lobster. They serve South African lobster tails, and they were the best I've ever had. Broiled, grilled...both fantastic. I also enjoy the "Pittsburgh Style" steaks on their menu - try it on the sirloin! They just sear the outside at super high temps, leaving the inside perfect and the outside with the barest of crusts. Add a lobster to that and you're set to go.

One of our newest favs is GrillSmith in Carrollwood. They have 3-4 others in the bay area. You can checkout the menu at GrillSmith.

Berns is rated number two steak house in America...and for good reason, but not cheap!
