THE CHARANN’S TAVERN STORY

AT CHARANN’S WE HONOR OUR OVER 50 YEAR TRADITION AS WE KEEP EVOLVING WITH FRESH MENU IDEAS & CRAFT BEER/ COCKTAILS IN A FAMILY FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT.

Once upon a time, Charlie and Ann Fisher, (Charann’s! See what they did there?) fell in love, got married, and opened Charann’s Tavern on the Courtney Campbell Causeway. Their Tampa’s Famous Cheesesteak Sandwich was a hit with locals, fisherman, and circus workers alike.

This cheesesteak is iconic, and people take pride in how many years they have enjoyed the same recipe that we use to this day! We are proud to use the same quality ingredients, including fresh baked bread from Casino Bakery right here in Tampa that is delivered daily. We take the time to do a 24 hr (4)- step process to  the Ribeye steak so that every sandwich melts in your mouth, brings back memories, and leave you craving another.

Although the location may have moved several times, Charann’s has always stayed true to Charlie and Ann’s vision. Come watch a game on one of our 19 screens, enjoy a beer or cocktail in our dining room, at the bar, or on our pet friendly patio. Whether it’s a quick bite, dinner with friends, family, or coworkers, or takeout/catering we have what you’re in the mood for.

But there is more to one of the favorite Local Bars in Tampa, and the bar and food aren’t the only fun things that Charann’s has to offer. Charann’s is a family-friendly bar with something for everyone. Even the family dog (pet) is welcome on the outdoor patio – why should they miss out on all the fun?

Charann’s Tavern is the sports bar and grill that answers the question, “Where’s the best food near me?” But not just the best food. Charann’s also has the best dining tables to eat that food from. Classic board games are mounted inside the tables, so you can enjoy some childhood favorites.

We take pride in being a Local Favorite, but there are always seats for someone new. Come down and see why the Tampa Original has been around for over 50 years.
