Lovely place with simply great, delicious food especially the Steaks. Good portion size, not cheap but well worth the price. Staff were brilliant - the way our server, Chris, described the menu on offer that evening was a work of art.

Good food done well. Steaks and seafood. Great wine list. Not like most restaurants in the area which tend to be fried food like burgers and chips. Lobster and steaks were good. Homemade dips and breads were excellent.

We have been to The Beachcomber many times as we go there whenever we visit Clearwater and this was one of the best! Every course was great and our server, Rhonda, was a top notch professional.
