We wanted to find a place for breakfast before we hit the beach. Very convenient location right across from the beach. Walking up, the outdoor seating had a great beachy feel. We ended up sitting inside where it was cooler. Adequate menu choices. The food was really good with large portions. My husband and I both had an omelet. Fluffy... More

We come to Beach Shanty every year we visit Clearwater Beach. We even recognized the same staff there working. This visit was no exception and we ate breakfast every morning there doing our five night stay in June 2015. We simply walked out of the Hilton and right across the street here for breakfast. I saw many other guests doing... More

We stumbled on to this little gem one morning and had breakfast at the Beach Shanty Café every morning of our stay. Prices are great, service is fast and friendly. Try the Chocolate Chip Pancakes with the Coconut Syrup!! OMG it's soooo good!!!

The food is fine, nothing special but fine. They get you in by a sign that says breakfast for $3.99, that was enticing. But once inside the food options are far more pricey ~ you cna still get a very small breakfast for $3.99, but it really was small, I think one egg and toast. The restaurant was also the... More

This was probably one of the best meals I had during a week's stay in Clearwater. The staff was fun and friendly and the food was just great - very simple cafe fare, but very well done! I wish we'd had a chance to go for breakfast, but lunch was amazing!

We are currently staying at the Hyatt in Clearwater and we asked the valet what place they recommend for a good breakfast and he recommended this little gem! There are 2 locations and we were told that the one in the shopping strip is better. We couldn't agree more! Breakfast done right with absolutely no complaints. Prices were great and... More
