This is as close as you get in Clearwater Beach to what we would call a "greasy spoon", but a fantastic restaurant. The best sandwiches, awesome breakfast, extremely friendly staff. Just be aware that they close at 4:00PM so it's a morning/lunch yum yum place. Their fries are to die for! And if you go for breakfast or at standard... More

We waited for a table and the food was not worth it. Omelet had a fishy taste to it and waffle was hard around the edges. The eggs were overcooked. Servers were very nice but we had no desire to go back.

The food MAY be good but we will not return. This is due to the attitude of the "Host" who was arrogant and rude as we waited to be seated.

My family loves coming for Breakfast here every year when we are on spring break! Great food and wait staff - Victoria & Regina(Irish). You do not want to pass up the Eggs Benedict - amazing!

It is a little shanty inside and gets crowded. Food was all good as were the prices. Great option for a cheaper but good meal. Recommend the grouper and was $12.95 with thick filling seasoned fries. Servers are pretty friendly but it is a hectic place.

They have a lot of great Breakfast choices along being able to create your own Omelets. It is small and you will have to wait a while to get in but it's worth it. I ordered take out which was quicker.

My family and I love the breakfast at Beach Shanty Cafe. We have eaten here several times during our stay. The Belgium waffles were delicious. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly. We highly recommend it.

Great food and great service. Sat in the outside dining area! Perfect! Cheese steak was as good as the ones you get in Philly!
