My lady and I stopped here for some apps and drinks and to enjoy the sunset with LIVE MUSIC. We were not disappointed at all. The service was really good and the drinks generous and well priced. We had chicken fingers (the good kind) and buffalo shrimp. Generous portions and generous sunset!

Overpriced for the quality of food. Fish was dry, prime rib was just OK. much better meal at Holiday Inn at Jimmys for less money.

We decided to take a trip over to Clearwater to check this place out. Very nice place along the beach and very clean. Valet parking that is free if you are visiting the restaurant. Food was good.

We went on a Tuesday night around 7 and there were less than 20 people eating in the restaurant. So, I get it, it's hard to keep food fresh under heat lamps all night. Their ad boasted of a wok station and a Brazilian style rotisseries; never saw either of those. The sushi was good but very limited selection; like... More

I have been here for a couple of weddings, a family outing and now for 2 holiday brunches. Each time was a great experience overall. The foot is plentiful and there has usually been a great selection from main courses and sides, to desserts. If you get the opportunity to eat outside, it adds a nice touch. It can get... More

I love this place!!! You will not regret it. The food is top of the line, plus if you eat there for dinner on Saturday night you get into their club and enjoy the live music for free. Overall, Clearwater Beach is very nice.

Excellent food choice and reasonably priced for Christmas Day. I would advise pre-booking as extremely busy on Christmas Day.
