Council Oak in Seminole Hard Rock Tampa New Social Hour Menu

I had a chance to taste the items on the new Council Oak (located in Seminole Hard Rock Casino) Social Hour (AKA Happy Hour) menu! Their happy hour is 7 days a week, 4pm to 6pm! Chef Cisco has created some DELICIOUS bites for this menu. It was hard to pick a favorite because they were all so good!

Grilled Brioche & Mushroom Toast with Truffle Crème Fraîche,  Manchego Cheese, Pickled Shallots, Micro Chive. This was so buttery and had the right amount of creaminess to it! If you like mushrooms, you must get it!

Fried Green Tomato Caprese Stack with Burrata Crème, Cilantro-Spinach Pesto, Roasted Red Pepper Jam. The pesto on this with the burrata creme was excellent! This is on the sweeter side because of the red pepper jam. It was as good as it looks!

Grilled Beef Tenderloin Skewers with Blended Herb Chimichurri and Crispy Shallots. The sauce on this was very flavorful and the crispy shallots were a great addition to the perfectly tender beef!

Council Oak Meatball with House Marinara, Toasted Baguette, and Parmigiano Reggiano. This has aged meat and it was very very good and BIG! Perfect for sharing!!

BBQ Kurobuta Pork Belly with Sweet Kimchi Glaze, Parsnip Chips, and Cucumber Slaw. This was not only gorgeous but had a bunch of amazing textures and flavors. I am craving this right now looking at this!!

Skuna Bay Salmon Tartare with Three Citrus Dressing, Pickled Red Onions, Citrus Crème Fraîche, and Crispy Potato Skin. This was a table favorite! Everyone was raving about this plate!

Keep on scrolling to see the three Social Hour cocktails!

Cucumber Gimlet- Effen Cucumber Vodka, Elderflower, Pear Nectar, Lemon Juice, and Sparkling Wine.

Perfect Americano- Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Tattersall Orange Crema, and Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth.

Apricot Negroni- Luxardo Apricot, Opihr Gin, Cynar, and Lemon Juice.

The Social Hour at Council Oak in Tampa is the perfect spot to hang out with some friends after work! They even had a live band playing!
