Right in front of my view, very disappointing, Waitress also, put two dishes at my place. Salad and soup, should be placed separately. She took salad away, then placed salad and entree together. Poor service.

We (6 couples) made reservations for a patio table at this amazing restaurant. Immediately we were greeted with grace. Hostess and servers were so nice and so knowledgeable. The menu selection is great. Very well balanced. I really enjoyed the chef's choice section. It helped narrow down the choices. I selected the sea bass. Wife picked the scallops. Other couples...

This restaurant is not only lovely with wonderful food, they also really know how to treat customers like valued guests. We had a wonderful post Christmas dinner with special treats like their relish tray.

We were in Clearwater Beach the weekend of the college football championship. On the Sunday, we went out for a walk, looking for a place for lunch. All of the "fish shack" places were jam packed, so we decided to check out this place. From the outside it looks like a catering hall, but in fact is a large restaurant... More

This is a fine dining experience when you want a break from all of the outdoor casual restaurants. Although they now offer outdoor dining. I had the crab cakes. They were great! They are also known for their relish tray that comes standard with all entrees. Nice piano music in the background.

Made reservations here for dinner without knowing anything about this restaurant. Big mistake! Our waiter was less than friendly...basically cold and void of any conversation. The menu was fine but the food quality for the price is a joke! We were served the relish tray with a plate of wrapped club crackers. Who eats relish on club crackers...GROSS!!!! When asked... More

We had our best meals here! It's got that olde time feeling with the relish tray and the piano player. Nice touch! The baby back ribs are delicious! Entrees come with soup or salad, as well as delicious banana bread/warm rolls.

Excellent food and service. A bit pricey, but worth it! I had the Chilean Sea Bass over a bed of vegetable parmesan risotto. Fantastic! Our server, Pam, delightful. Definitely would go back.

Looks like it's going to be great, prices say it will be great, reviews say so too but I just didn't get it. Slow service, poor food and pricey check! I don't mind paying for good experiences but this just didn't hit the mark.

Highly recommended for an extensive wine list and great bar visited by the regulars of Clearwater. The food is equally spectacular with great service. A must go if your in the Clearwater area.
