Safety Harbor’s Bar Fly, a fly fishing-inspired bar and restaurant, debuted a second location in Palm Harbor at 1026 Nebraska Ave.

There are many similarities between the Safety Harbor and Palm Harbor Bar Fly locations, like their casual seafood oriented menu, a gift shop where Bar Fly swag is sold and a laid back atmosphere. Unlike its Safety Harbor sister, the Palm Harbor location features a large outdoor patio and a stage for bands. The outdoor lounge area is fully decked out in tiki decor and hand-painted Sweetwater Brewing Company logos. Owners Jeff and Celeste Harrell been putting the new Palm Harbor stage to use, with reggae and jam bands playing almost every weekend. 

There’s also indoor seating for patrons who’d like to enjoy their tuna nachos and fish hooked-shaped pretzels in the air-conditioned peace. 

The Palm Harbor location is open 11:30 a.m-11 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 11:30 a.m.-midnight Friday and Saturday, 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday, and is closed Monday.
