Ultimately, Dubliner is an Irish gem
By Julie Garisto
Published June 29, 2007
The Dubliner wasn't even nominated by our Ultimate staff, but plenty of these people thought it was important enough to "write in" and vote this pub the winner. Boy, do we have Guiness on our face!

The full winner's list
Every week for six months, tbt* asked its loyal readers to vote on their favorite bars, restaurants, personalities and attractions in Tampa Bay. And now we've compiled the winners into this collection of 25 ultimate choices.
The Dubliner, a write-in winner for Tampa Bay's Ultimate Irish Pub, achieves the ultimate dichotomy of all great Irish bars - heck, of all bars in general - an uncanny ability to be both boisterous and relaxing.
The Dubliner's yellow walls show off game trophies, and aged wood trim lends a homey, cozy feel. The Guinness mirrors remind you what you look like after a few rounds.
A few changes have taken place over the past year: The pub has replaced Boddingtons with Tetley's Original Ale, and the microbrews and seasonals have ramped up. A side patio for drinking and live music provides more space to move around than the bar indoors, but inside, two heavy wooden antique bars serve up heavy doses of Irish-meets-American-casual atmosphere.
The Dubliner now serves pizza, but it also offers traditional Anglo-Celtic food favorites, with some funky American options, like waffle fries with nacho toppings.
Smithwick's, Stella Artois, Woodchuck, Carlsberg and many more of your best friends from other lands make up a great brew selection. It's a little pricier than a mom and pop Irish bar, but it's worth it.
