“I would live in Titanic if I could,” said Titanic fan Chris Mcquade. “The spicy cervache wings,triple screw and Karaoke [are] to die for.”
While this is merely one reaction from a Titanic enthusiast, this restaurant and brewery pub has become home to an increasing number of college drinkers. A big reason for this is their food. The Titanic classic burger was rated number one in Miami by the Miami New Times.
Furthermore, they offer everything from a tasty bucket of wings, to a fancy steak/seafood dinner, and all at very reasonable prices. It’s a superior alternative to Wendy’s, which is just around the corner, and offers a much tastier beverage selection.
Though you can find Miami’s finest burger at Titanic, the place is not a mere burger joint. Titanic also offers a more wholesome selection. From freshly steamed mussels to a delicious pasta primavera to a rack of ribs or to a perfectly cooked steak, it has something to satisfy any craving you may have. And ask the waiters to complement your meal with the perfect beer; you’ll soon find yourself in paradise.
“Whenever I’m hungry I go to Titanic,” said frequent patron Patrick Dupree. “Whenever I’m thirsty I go to Titanic.”
But enough of the food. What sets Titanic apart from any other establishment in its area is its fine beer. Brewmaster Jamie Ray has raked in countless awards and accolades from beer festivals around the world, including a silver medal for the Captain Smith’s Rye at the prestigious World Beer Cup, the first Florida beer ever to receive such an award. But proof is in the pub; the best way to experience some of Florida’s finest beer is to try it yourself.
Titanic serves up six house beers: the triple screw, the Brittanic best bitter, nutbrown, the Captain Smith’s Rye, the white star India pale ale, and finally, the smooth and creamy oatmeal stout. All of them are ales, which generally means they are packed with more flavor and a higher alcohol content.
Not sure which one to get? Try their sampler, a plate of each of the house beers served conveniently in small glasses for you to decide which is your favorite. All beers are $3.50 – $4.50, but you can knock off a dollar on house beers during happy hour, which is from 4-8 p.m. everyday.
Or you can also capitalize on $2 triple screws from 10 p.m. to closing every Monday and Wednesday night.
In addition to Titanic’s fine food and beer, is an even finer atmosphere. For starters, the service is excellent. One regular known as “The Mic” said “as soon as I walk in here, Amanda K. already has my favorite beer waiting for me.
There’s nothing better than being around cool people who are supportive of my drinking habit”.
While Titanic is no hole in the wall, there is definitely a Cheers-type of atmosphere about it. “Everybody knows your name here,” says Mcquade, “I don’t know where I’d go without this place.”
One of the reasons why the restaurant has such a large following is because it offers a diverse range of evening entertainment. Tuesdays are jazz nights, when musicians from the music school can bring their instruments and join the Alex Berti Trio. Thursdays offer some of the finest blues bands in Miami, and Fridays and Saturdays are open to local variety bands. And for the more courageous performers, Sundays offer the finest Karaoke in town, brought to you by the famous Boogie Man George.
Whatever the dinner or drinking occasion, Titanic offers it. The excellent service, beer and ambiance make Titanic one of those places where “everybody knows your name.” And again, it’s walking distance from campus.
