"I felt like everything was in control and I was able to enjoy my evening. Guests raved about the food! We included an animal mingle and giraffe feeding. The animals were a huge hit and the zookeeper who brought them in was happy to answer all kinds of questions from guests. We had a wonderful time, got some amazing pictures, and had a very unique event!"
"Going to the Zoo is like going to the best fine dining restaurant in Tampa!"
"What an amazing event at Lowry Park Zoo. You're probably thinking that a meal at the zoo would consist of oats, hay, carrots, and some apples, but no -- this was some serious gourmet catering!"
"Lowry Park Zoo always does an event right."
"All of our attendees thoroughly enjoyed the entire visit - the beautiful setting, the fantastic food. The setting for lunch was gorgeous, and the food was exceptional, from the shrimp tacos to the mouth-watering beef and the amazing waffle sundae bar. More than one person at my table said that it was the best meal they had in Tampa!"
