The deactivation of HogansBeachTampa.com has raised questions regarding the future of the establishment. We heard from one our readers that was there last week that informed us it was closing and a date was unknown. It appears the closure is now complete.
It’s unknown why the restaurant was shut down but all one has to do is look at the controversy Hogan has been caught up in regarding racial and homophobic slurs and it’s not hard to figure out. The eatery always had mixed reviews but they were able to charge premium prices for interested tourists. The restaurant, called Hogan’s Beach, was described as a “Raucous, tiki-style eatery with an American menu favoring seafood boasts a celebrity owner.”
