The Beachcomber isn't just a restaurant with consistently spectacular food. It's a trip back in time, a mood. It's a grown up restaurant. On different visits, we have seen elderly customers who we can imagine have been dining here since 19something. Everyone is professional, the artwork, lighting, and piano sets the mood of cocktails, steaks, and late nights you don't... More

This year was the second year that we chose to go to the Beachcomber for our Thanksgiving Dinner. The meal was amazing as was last year's meal. It is a little pricey, but with the quality and amount of food that we received, it was well worth the cost. We had two couples at a good sized table. When the... More

By I went with a business associate to dinner our first night in town. I had Surf and turf. It was a 6 oz filet mignon and a 6 oz lobster tail with a spinach salad and potatoes. Everything was cooked perfectly and the bread basket and relish tray was a treat while we waited. Prices are a bit high... More

Had not been there in years. It was better when Bob was there. The famous chicken is not cooked as well as in the old days. The service was not as good either. Our server seemed to be confused. Still, I gave it a 4. That may be a tad high.

We went for Sunday brunch. There are menu choices for appetizers, mains, and desserts, around $15-16.00 White linen tablecloths and delicious relishes, and food! The service was excellent, and they have an extensive wine selection. Parking out back is free. Enjoy!

Very good lunch of Red Snapper. Problem with dessert and they probably should have taken more off, oh well.

We always make the Beachcomber a must stop place, but this time we were very disappointed. Service was very rushed, table left cluttered and food arriving before we even finished the previous course. Our server had 5 tables, which is unusually high compared to the 1 or 2 they normally have so that a perfect dining experience could be had.... More

Have been going here 40 years still love it. I used to live in Indian Rocks Beach moved years ago but never quit going when ever I am in the area. Family run, like an old time supper club with classic food for lunch or dinner. Back to the Farm fried chicken still made in cast iron skillets, or true... More
