THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Newk's Lighthouse Cafe Restaurant Review

: This corner café and bar offers a broad outdoor deck for enjoying drinks and entertainment, and a cool interior for sandwiches and salsa. Newk's is handy to the St. Pete Times Forum, home ice for the Tampa Bay Lightning and venue for a variety of concerts and other events. The menu emphasizes seafood, especially grouper; the house specialty is a crunchy grouper filet, coated in corn flakes and then lightly fried. Pasta, chicken, pork tenderloin and an eight-ounce sirloin also make appearances on the menu, as well as a couple of vegetarian entrées: a grilled portobello sandwich and a vegetarian bean burger topped with pepperjack cheese.
