Tampa Bay restaurants are no stranger to television, and a classic institution in South Tampa is about to get a little much-deserved screen time.

Big Ray's Fish Camp has a slightly newer second location at Sail Plaza in downtown Tampa, but the original spot, located at 6116 Interbay Blvd. will be the star of an upcoming episode of comedian John Catucci's "Big Food Bucket List" on the Food Network Canada.
The fish shack posted about the upcoming episode on its Instagram yesterday, saying the show will first air in Canada on Sept. 3  at 8 p.m. EST, in the States on Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. EST, and later streaming on Hulu.

Owned by Nick Cruz, brother of Mayor Jane Castor's partner Ana Cruz, the South joint has been a staple of the area since 2015, serving unique takes on everything from grouper sandos to lobster corn dogs.
