If you don't like pizza, then we wouldn't recommend going to Tampa's newly-opened Colony Grill, because 'za is the only thing on the menu.

Midtown Tampa, the the 22-acre mixed-use development project, is the home to Florida's newest Colony Grill location, which lives at 3640 Midtown Dr.

Favorites on its menu include the self-explanatory salad pizza, and breakfast pies topped with bacon or sausage, egg and cheese. Toppings for its regular pizza pies include pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, sweet peppers, black olives, bacon, meatballs, anchovies and “stingers”—Colony Grill’s spicy jalapeño oil that’s got a little more of a bite than the regular hot oil. Pizzas's start at $10.50 with each topping adding an extra $1.75.

Also know for its wide variety of beer, Tampa's Colony Grill also offers Guinness, PBR, 
New England Brewing Co. Sea Hag IPA, Sam Adams seasonal and Blue Moon on tap, and also sells an even wider selection via bottles, like Downeast Original Cider,

The only other Colony Grill in Tampa Bay resides on downtown St. Pete’s Central Avenue, where it debuted in the fall of 2021.
The pizza chain has multiple other locations throughout Connecticut, New York and Virginia.

Colony Grill joins the ranks of other newly-opened restaurants in the ever-growing Midtown Tampa development, like Bare Naked Kitchen, True Food Kitchen,  Walk On's, Don't Kale Me Crazy and the upcoming Sunda New Asian.

Tampa's new pizza joint is now open from 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11:30 a.m.-12:30 a.m. on Friday-Saturday.  For the latest information on the newly-opened Colony Grill, head to its Facebook at @colonygrilltampamidtown.
