AmberJacks Bar and Grill, formerly Salute’s Sport Grill, is holding an official grand opening event. As Riverview natives themselves, owners Donya and Thomas DeVore want to encourage neighbors to bring their families and friends to try out the food and enjoy the festivities.

On Saturday, April 21, the celebration will begin at 12 Noon. Bounce houses and a waterslide are among the plans for entertainment and one child will eat free with each paying adult. Domestic draft beer will be $1 all day and there will be other specials.

“We want people to know this a new place catering to business people and families during the day and early evening and then offering a night spot for adults during the later hours,” Donya said. “We want to make AmberJacks the center of Riverview.”

The menu at AmberJacks includes a variety of appetizers, salads and soups, plus burgers, chicken sandwiches and entrees, ranging from steaks to beef and broccoli and butterfly shrimp.

The fried pickles, buffalo chicken sandwich, filet and calamari are best sellers, according to Donya.

 “My goal is to wow customers, not just provide good food and good service,” she added.

A dart board, pool table, video games and more are great for keeping for both children and adults occupied and from live acts to hospitality night, there is always something going at AmberJacks.

Daily food specials feature items such as a Reuben sandwich, shrimp platter and chicken parmesan with a salad. There are also nightly drink specials, men’s and ladies’ nights, karaoke and other entertainment.

Every day, senior citizens receive a 10 percent discount and emergency personnel such as police and firefighters always eat for half-price.
