In Clearwater for a conference and found a place within walking distance of hotel. Very friendly staff, good service and delicious food. The she crab soup was delightful as was the lime shrimp tacos. Definitely would go back again.

We walked up to this location and took an outside seat, enjoying the sunset and tasty seafood. I was seeking a good fish sandwich and was not disappointed. I would recommend this place for some casual outdoor dining to anyone.

Monday's and Tuesday's at Saltwater Cafe on Mandalay Ave (N. beach). AYCE snow crab and beer battered flounder for $27.95. Don't know about steamed vs boiled. Service is great and you'll never wait for the next round.
