Tampa Bay Business Journal - Whiskey Joe's expanding Tampa Bay area presence, to break ground next week (Rendering)


Whiskey Joe's Bar & Grill, a waterfront bar and grill off the Courtney Campbell Causeway in Tampa, is getting ready to break ground on another waterfront location.

The new location at 7829 & 7835 Bayview Street, Port Richey, is breaking ground on July 20, and is expected to be complete in mid-December and could create up to 150 jobs when completed.

The investment on the new location is $3 million, according to spokesperson for the restaurant.

"Whiskey Joe's chose the location because Port Richey needed more waterfront restaurants and the location checked all the boxes," the spokesperson said.

The chain is currently in negotiations for a property on the Manatee River, and is looking to expand to other locations in Florida, according to a statement.
