Dining in Clearwater

Clearwater’s restaurants offer a fascinating variety of good, reasonably priced food served in attractive and equally varied surroundings. The Gulf of Mexico is home to a multitude of seafood. Enjoy familiar and new nightly specials here in Clearwater. A fish not tasted many places is our gulf grouper, a flaky white fish prepared in as many ways possible. Enjoy our amazing sunsets while dining in an open- air patio overlooking the water or sharing a more elegant candlelight dinner. Combine fine dining with an interactive murder mystery and exercise your imagination and deductive skills. For an outstanding meal with even more inspiring scenery, consider a dining cruise in the intra-coastal and Gulf of Mexico. Whatever you choose, you’ll appreciate our outstanding service and high quality food.

Stone crab, available from October to May, is truly worth the trip! So much so you’ll want to return again and again just for that.
