Breakfast, lunch or dinner. We had them all and all were excellent. Staff outstanding. Pizza and paninis were gourmet and the breakfast one of the best we have had.

You would not look at this restaurant and know just how great the food is. The chef specials are always the best. The shrimp and grits are as good as anything in New Orleans. Great place

I have been there twice and have had great food both times for lunch. The first time there was a small problem with the server but the owner actually called me at home and we discussed it. That meant a lot to me as I live not far from there. The place is probably the cleanest on the beach and... More

Have frequented this restaurant through the years and had the opportunity to dine for both breakfast and lunch over the past two weekends. Hostess friendly and efficient, service excellent, many wonderful food choices and meals were all perfect! Looking forward to trying your new Dunedin location soon.

They have a Bloody Mary bar that looked cute but I didn't partake. The food was good and the place was packed. My problem was our server. I've bartended, I know how it works. I know you don't make comments about what people order. Apparently our server does not know this. I am a vegetarian who does not eat anything... More

My wife, daughter and I were taking a stroll down Mandalay and had a craving for some seafood. We came across Clear Sky and took our chance. The hostess and wait staff were very accommodating especially with our 11 month old and the stroller. We had specialty drinks and the calamari appetizer. The Calamri came in a great portion and...

My wife and I visited this restaurant for dinner on a Friday evening in July during our recent visit to Clearwater Beach. Although there were a lot of folk there, we really didn't have to wait terribly long for a table, and were able to snag a couple of beers at the bar while we waited. Bartender was friendly and...

I reviewed French's yesterday & spoke of the Great Photo Op. Well, it was @Clear Sky. A Huge Beach Chair, Colorful & Fun, sits on a platform steps away from the entrance. So sorry if I sent someone astray. After dragging our toddler away from the Chair, we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast. Food was excellent, waitress on hand when we... More

Great spot for drinks and listening to music. Have really only eaten here maybe 2 or 3 times. Food is pretty good, fish is always fresh. But to be honest mainly go later in the evening for drinks and music scene. Can hear the ocean just outside the patio area, can easily walk the beach from there. Lovely place.
