A Story By

Sports bars are easy to come by in Safety Harbor, making it a great area to watch a game with friends.  Whether you’re looking for a place with craft brews or an amazing menu full of game day snacks, we have done our research to find the best sports bars in the area! 

Check out our master guide on the best sports bars in Safety Harbor for the next big game!

Tiki Tavern

Tiki Tavern is a tropical vacation inspired sports bar in Safety Harbor.  This unique spot features a full bar, a fun food menu, and plenty of televisions that you can view from any seat in the house.  We love their Polynesian inspired dishes and cocktails – not to mention their great selection of local craft beer!  If catching a game is not enough entertainment, you can also visit for one of their many local live music acts.  One of our favorite parts of the Tiki Tavern feel is their roll up doors that let plenty of fresh air and sunshine into the space.

For game time munchies and drinks, we recommend their signature margarita and a couple of their appetizers!  We love their wings and flatbreads, with amazing Polynesian inspired flavors to choose from.

Norton's Sports Bar & Grill

Norton’s Sports Bar & Grill is one of the go-to spots for game day in the Safety Harbor area.  This popular sports bar features classic bar food and burgers – so if you are craving some quality American food, then this is the place for you!  We love that their airy space has a full bar, not just beer and wings.  There are also about 40 to 50 televisions hung around the space, so you will not miss a moment of the game no matter where you are sitting!

Additionally, if you are looking for UFC pay per view fights then you have to come to Norton’s.   No need to go searching for who has the right channels with this spot in the area!

We love their menu because they carry all of the best classic bar food.  Some of our favorites are the buffalo shrimp, tater tots, and sweet chili sauced wings!

Troubled Waters Brewing

Previously known as Copperheads Tap House, Troubled Waters Brewing is already becoming a regular spot for the Safety Harbor locals.  This brewhouse focused sports bar will have everything that your favorite beer connoisseur needs to have a good time.  They even serve their own brews, so you’ll have to come and check it out. We recommend the Chocolate Raspberry Stout for its unique and sweet but not overpowering flavor.

At Troubled Waters not only are the drinks great and plenty of televisions, but there are also pool tables and live music to entertain you for when the game might not be going your way!

Crooked Thumb Brewing

Crooked Thumb Brewing is a local Safety Harbor brewery and tasing room in their Downtown area.  We definitely recommend visiting on the weekends for their weekly local food truck selections and great live music!  

This is one of our favorite spots for their social atmosphere, so you must come by with a group of friends for game day!  Their garden area is full of overarching trees, large picnic tables, yard games, and beautiful lighting.  This is also a dog-friendly spot since there is plenty of space for furry friends to roam. Additionally, if you are looking to bring family, this would be one of our top recommendations.  The vibe at Crooked Thumb is not similar to a club atmosphere and there are plenty of games to entertain the kids.

Bar Fly

Bar Fly is a beachy Key West inspired sports bar decorated with fly fishing and Floridian accents.  We love this spot for their casual but bright feel, which creates a great mood for a weekday game watching session after work.  This spot features an amazing seafood menu, craft beer, and high quality service.

We love that you get a seafood spin on regular bar food at Bar Fly.  There are so many snacks and dishes to choose from, we recommend that you share with a friend!  Check out their Lobster Grilled Cheese or their signature Shrimp Tacos.  We also suggest ordering the grilled cheese with the Lobster Bisque, the perfect combination!  They also have a raw bar as well, perfect for the oyster lovers in the family.
