Ward's has become our every-Wednesday spot for lunch. I know they offer a wide selection of fresh seafood and prepared seafood items (just take them home and heat them up). Did you know they also serve food freshly prepared by the totally awesome Jess? We go for the Captain's fish and chips which is buy one get one free -... More

We got some really tasty fresh grouper and shrimp to cook at our place. There were sooooo many tasty fresh seafood selections to choose from. We want to go back and try more! Would definitely recommend for those looking for fresh seafood and we would return.

Went there on a Monday not realizing they didn't do lunch that day. We were disappointed but decided to come back the next day and get some shrimp to go for a BBQ we were having. "Mr Montauk" was kind enough to clean, devein and steam some jumbo shrimp for us. Probably the best shrimp cocktail bar none I have... More

They always have super fresh fish. They have a nice selection of ready to go fish sandwiches. Their seafood spread is amongst the best I've ever had.

A large selection of fresh fish and a good selection of prepared fish and salads. Really good fish fry. It was on special 2 for $10.50, great deal and it was good and there was plenty. Everything we have tried has been good, chowder too. I would recommend take out. Dining area is a couple of picnic tables.

I went to Wards for the first time a couple of days before Christmas, I wanted to take shrimp to a party that night and they hit the mark. I got 2 pounds of large shrimp, seasoning boil, cocktail sauce and a pint of lobster bisque. The shrimp came out perfect, the sauce was excellent and the bisque was lunch,... More

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

(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
