Classic Food At The Raymond James Stadium

Being very much a coastal area, the Tampa Bay area is particularly known for its seafood. Florida’s most traditional food is rock shrimp and grits.

And Tampa Bay is also known for its deviled crab. What’s more, many generations of Tampa chefs use ingredients such as shrimp, blue crab, and oysters.

Sadly, however, this classic Tampa Bay seafood is somewhat lacking in the Raymond James Stadium, which focuses almost exclusively on traditional concession stand foods.

That said, there are notable cultural influences that impact the classic Tampa Bay, Florida dishes. This includes the likes of Spanish, Cuban, Southern US, Italian, Asian, and Mexican flavors.

To an extent, you will find these influences within the restaurants at the stadium, but to be honest, this is minimal.

However, if you wish to sample local cuisine while you’re in the area, you can always grab a bite to eat in the local area before (or after) heading to the stadium, which leads us nicely to our next section.
