The food is one of the best. We had Prime Rib and Crab cakes, as well as chicken Quesidea. Ashley our server knew the menu and wine selection to the tee. I would highly recommend for a romantic dinner, or a family gathering. Sit in the bar area, alot of great people watching.

Waiter was awesome and professional. Meal was excellent. Atmosphere was private. We seated quickly with no reservations but it was a quieter time of year. Recommend highly.

Don't judge this place by its location. Inside, it is an upscale restaurant. We were there for appetizers and sat at the bar. It was there that we witnessed one the smartest ideas. Underneath the widescreen TVs in the rear of the bar area were three cooks working in appetizer kitchen. They and their work were there for all to see. No excuses about working entrees. Talk about pressure to produce. And produce they did. Fried jumbo shrimp were outstanding.

Cold food, mediocre service, small booth next to restroom, great soup. We were looking for a fine steak house to treat our friends for their birthdays. We told the hostess it was a special occasion so she seated us next to the restroom where we enjoyed a steady stream of men walking out checking their flys all evening as well as many women coming and going. Our server was a "low talker" and we struggled to hear her all throughout the meal. The onion soup and lobster bisque were some of the best we have ever had, BUT the lobster bisque was served barely warm. We told the server and she never apologized but did take it back to be warmed up. Likewise, neither my filet nor our friend's prime rib were served at a proper temperature (i.e. they were cold) but given the server's response on the soup we decided not to send them back. The other two entrees at our table were proper temperature and delicious. The server did comp a dessert in celebration of the birthdays which was appreciated and was a fantastic creme brûlée.

We really wanted to like Bascom's. We chose it because none of us had ever been there and we have all been to almost all of the high-end steak houses in Tampa Bay. While the final bill was definitely lower than it would have been at most of the others, the compromise in atmosphere, service and attention to basic detail was not worth the savings.

We attended a wedding reception at Bascom's Chop House in August 2016. The atmosphere from the time you walk through the door is one of a nice evening out. The mushroom appetizer, prime rib, chicken, fish and pasta were all delicious cooked to perfection. The hosts and bartender provided great service and the establishment was very clean.
