The fried fish and cole slaw is excellent! Always fresh! Only suggestion would be to offer something other than french fries.

My extended family stayed in Clearwater Beach in a rented house Thanksgiving week to celebrate my dads 70th birthday. We decided to grill seafood for his birthday dinner and bought shrimp, scallops, salmon & grouper at Wards. The quality of each item was top notch and the grouper was some of the best I've ever eaten. If we vacation here... More

This establishment has been around FOREVER. And theres good reason. They have a great seafood market and you can eat there. We had lunch there for around $40. (family of 4) It was prepared fresh and had large portions. Its not near the beach so if you looking for beach front this isn't it but the food and service is... More

Was staying in the Belleair Beach Area and had checked this place out online and also on TripAdvisor's glad I did. We were staying in a condo on the beach and wanted to go and bring something back for our week's stay - Should have bought more but knew we would be eating out also. Got a little over a... More

The next visit, we shared fresh boiled lobster and fish and chips...these guys really know how to cook and prepare seafood meals. HUGE selection of... More

This is an old-school biz. I don't remember them not being here. I mean you watch them filet your fish. In stone crab season, I buy theirs, go home and eat them. Only way to get the big ones are here. They now have a little deli with cooked food.

Stopped by for the fish and chip special. It was fried as ordered as I prefer extra crispy. Portion and price were good. Not sure about the freshness as the fish left an after taste in my mouth. The fish in the cases looked pricey. Good customer service.

We loved Ward's. Went there twice during our holidays. The staff were so helpful in suggesting what was popular and how to prepare each type of fish we bought. We are from a small town in Ontario so we wanted to try different fish we can't get back home. Our favorite was the Mahi Mahi cooked on the BBQ. They... More
