I had an overall enjoyable experience at this place, it was laid back and had a nice selection of beers. I liked that it had more than the typical bar food menu and had some seafood and southern cuisine options like jambalaya and gumbo – which I regret not trying. It was easy to find, and there was plenty of parking less than one block away. The wall décor was interesting and fell within the nautical Titanic theme. I know nothing about making beer so it was also nice to see the vats, taps, and hoses necessary for the process all proudly on display. I really liked that they are a staple in the area, and that it is the unofficial University of Miami bar, and that they have a loyalty program to give discounts to their frequent customers. The corn & crawfish fritters were my favorite thing. The sweetness of the corn went well with the batter, they weren’t overly fishy or greasy. I did think they could have had more filling, less breading for you to really appreciate the flavorings. The fried calamari was excellent also – it was fresh, not too greasy, overly seasoned or breaded. We also sampled the sausage and cheese board which was perfect for sharing with a small group of friends. For my main dish I ordered BBQ pork ribs with French fries. I noticed that they were made in the oven versus a smoker, and the sauce was the expected sweet/tangy standard barbeque flavor. The meat was not “fall off the bone”, and a little dry and hard to cut, but once I grabbed them with my hands they were enjoyable! They came with a side of coleslaw which was fresh and not too sweet and creamy. All paired well with the light beer I ordered, the Triple Screw Pilsner, which was a little fruity with not a lot of bitter hop. I found this place to be family friendly and pretty cool to go and hang out with friends, have a few beers catch-up and watch a game. The food was simply prepared, cooked well but not overly seasoned. I think this may be done on purpose as to not overpower or outshine their selection of brews. I think we came too early! I can see it turning into a party after a local team win and past midnight. Our split bill for two people including a couple of beers, two entrees and two appetizers was about $80.

Wonderful brew pub with very good food, served by an enthusiastic young and professional staff. I recommend it to anyone seeking a casual, nice dining experience. Disclaimer: I am an unabashed lover of all things University of Miami, and Titanic has been a part of the UM fabric for over two decades. Moreover, I love Miami history, and the Titanic was, from the 60s through mid-70s, the Flick Coffeehouse, which was a major folk music venue in South Florida, when Coconut Grove and Miami was "Greenwich Village South" during the days of that great music. For example, Joni Mitchell was "discovered" by David Crosby there, and the Flick was the reason Jimmy Buffet came to South Florida, but a scheduling conflict sent him with his friend Jerry Jeff Walker ("Mr. Bojangles") to Key West, where the rest is history...So I love being in that venue, and since Titanic has taken over, there is great beer, a fine bar, and very good casual food to go along with the live music they have many nights per week. Also, before Canes baseball and basketball games, Titanic is THE meeting spot. I've been a fan for years, and highly recommend it to beer lovers, music lovers, and those seeking a real college pub atmosphere with true history in South Florida.

As soon as I pulled up to the restaurant, I was luckily enough to find street parking since it was super early on a Thursday afternoon. However, I’m sure this could be a little bit of a mission at a busier time. When I walked in the entire bar was jammed packed, but they were still lots of empty tables. I waited about 5 min before being seated. As soon as I was seated I was given a menu + the happy hour one too. We were then given water and asked what we wanted to drink. The drinks were brought to the table 3 to 4 min after we had ordered them. We then placed our order for the wings + our entrées as we were really hungry. The wings of course were brought out first and about 10 to 15 min after we had put in the order. We got luckily and ended up getting 12 wings instead of 10, which was nice since we were a party of 4 and all got to have a few extras one. The wings were crispy and tender in the middle and were dabbed nicely with BBQ sauce. Five to 10 min after we had finished our wings, our food came out. There was so much food on the table I was overwhelmed (with joy of course). My dad ordered the Southern Burger which had cheddar, bacon, slaw and BBQ sauced served on a brioche bun. My husband ended up ordering the pulled pork sandwich, with pickles and slaw. Both my mom and I shared the rack of ribs. They were HUGE, so big that we ended up taking some home because we couldn’t finish them all. We all ordered fries. They were extremely fresh and delish! The slaw was also yummy, it had a nice flavor to it and they brought out a nice sized portion with the ribs. We loved the slaw so much we ordered another order to the table. We all had a second round of drinks and couldn’t order dessert because we just couldn’t eat anymore. Seriously, this is the kind of place you’ll want to pig out at. I greatly enjoyed my meal and overall experience at the restaurant. I can’t wait to go back soon!
