THE CHARANN’S TAVERN STORY
A Cheesesteak Sandwich And A Beer Walk Into A Bar…And The Rest Is History!
The good kind of history. Not the kind that made you fall asleep in class. This is the kind of history that makes you reach for the tissues to wipe away a tear from the sheer joy of reading about the epic love story between the cheesesteak sandwich and the beer!
Once upon a time, Charlie and Ann Fisher, (Charann’s! See what they did there?) fell in love, got married, and had a family. One of their children, Tampa’s Famous Cheesesteak Sandwich, was soon followed by Chicken Wings, Fries, and House-Made Chips.
The Best Cheesesteak Sandwich in Tampa grew up to honor his Philly heritage in the best way he knew how – he married Beer in a beautiful ceremony in the Full Liquor Bar. They held their reception on the outdoor patio at Charann’s Tavern, so that their dogs could attend the party too.
In March of 2000, Charann’s was handed over to Karin Murphy. Karin takes her responsibilities seriously and continues to run one of the best dog-friendly bars in Tampa. On a week night, you can usually find Cheesesteak Sandwich hanging out with Charann’s loyal customers on the bench made from hockey sticks or sitting with Beer during happy hours between 4pm and 8pm (and all day Saturday and Sunday).
