Fun poolside bar with casual food. Delicious drinks and great service! What a view from the 8th floor of the hotel!

We ate here and found the food above average and the service is great and very friendly. I love the grouper bites and the fish tacos. Al little pricey but with it was well worth it for us. Show less

Great food and service. Gorgeous views. The beef tip tacos were awesome and my kids loved the grilled cheese. The cheeseburger was great too.

Bad service, mediocre foot, overpriced and not worth trying. I was overcharged and quoted incorrect information about what I ordered. It has a nice view of the beach...only positive.

You only get asked for service if you put your flag up on your beach chair. Most of the times they do not stay up. Very slow service and watered down drinks for a high price. I recommend to bring your cooler. Signs are posted...More

Great views! The food isn't anything special just standard beach bar food. Rachel was our server and she was awesome! Very attentive. Drinks were delicious and a little on the high side for price but they are in line with beach drinks.

A great place to detox after a long day. Good drinks, and bar food. Excellent service. Comfortable table and chairs, with umbrella (should you desire). Overlooks the gulf with a wide view of the beach.

Nothing like sitting outside overlooking the gulf! We were happy to sit and order margaritas and daquiri's~ chips, guac and salsa... It was all delish, but $14 for the drinks was a bit steep.

After trying most of the better known dining options in Clearwater Beach, we ventured up to the 8th floor of the Hyatt to try the Swim Bar and Grill. It's a casual outdoor cafe offering a spectacular view overlooking the full length of the beach, and it was probably the best meal we had in our recent visit (April 2012). The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The menu is not extensive by any means, but everything we ordered was a pleasant surprise for a such a casual spot. Certainly the freshest and best prepared grouper we had during our 10-day visit to the area. Try the grouper salad!
