Looking to treat yourself on your birthday? What’s better than a great meal at a place where the staff will treat you as the star of the show? Whether you want to go with a big group of friends or just a small get-together, these Tampa restaurants are great options for a birthday celebration.

Everyone is different. Some people like to keep things low-key on their birthday, especially the older they get. Others love to celebrate their birthday all week (or even month) long. I’m sure there are also people out there who love to stick with what they know/like. It can be kind of nerve-wracking to try something new on your birthday in case you get disappointed.
