Salt Shack on the Bay is officially in soft opening stages, with its grand opening on July 1 at 5415 W. Tyson in Tampa. 

Beginning Monday, hours for the shack will be Monday through Thursday 4-11 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m.-2 a.m. and Saturday 11 a.m-11 p.m.

Salt Shack is an outdoor concept, with table and bar seating, with picnic tables stationed in the sand along the waterfront. 

There are two bars on-site, and a "shipwrecked" boat for some prime photo ops, as if the waterfront views aren't enough. 

Salt Shack is the latest boat-up/drive-up concept on Gandy Bridge, so add it to your list of places to drink in your bathing suit this summer. 

Guests can enjoy draft beers, frozen daiquiris and craft cocktails with freshly squeezed OJ while watching the sunset by the water. 

The restaurant is also serving up seasonal seafood like oysters, crab, and shrimp.
