We eat here every September out of tradition. However, after tonight we are talking about ending. Our party of three ordered the Cajun grouper sandwich with coleslaw, the fried shrimp basket, and the seafood medley. The best item on the seafood medley plate was the mixed vegetables and they were just shy of mushy. The shrimp, bay scallops, and grouper... More

We ate here twice, two days in a row for lunch. The lunch both days were very good. My favorite was the shrimp tacos. The seafood was expertly prepared and the combination of flavors was outstanding. Service was very good the first day, when we beat the crowd. The second day it was more busy and Sasha seeem a bit... More

Service was bad. Food was fried only in old oil. Nothing at all special. No view, very very loud. No parking.

Excellent Grouper sandwich - don't forget to use your free drink voucher (these are flyers that are usually in the hotel brochure racks) - Great service. Grouper Nuggets are amazing also.

Place looks amazing on a summer's day, quiet location but a well worth finding. Beer was nice and cold and the staff were very friendly. Good choice on the menu and went for a Grouper Ruebens Sandwich. Presentation was amazing as was the taste, plus very reasonable price. Definately worth finding.

Seriously, take a walk out back behind the restaurant and look across the street and tell me what you see.... Frenchys Seafood Market and their Boats that are continuously bringing in fresh fish. There is only one place on this beach that I would eat a Grouper Sandwich at and it would be here. No wonder they have won "... More

We liked it so much we ate here twice during our four night stay in Clearwater! The choice of menu was excellent, very reasonably priced and superb quality. The starters/appetizers are huge so be sure to share these. Ashley our server was wonderful and very helpful. Highly recommend.

Husband has the grilled grouper sandwich and son had the cajun grouper sandwich at about 8pm last night. Both woke up this morning ill with severe cramps and diarrhea. Husband said the grouper sandwich was lacking in flavor. Would not visit again.

The location is beautiful :) you are overlooking the sea and people playing volleyball ;) always fun to watch. Really nice food. Pre warning the chicken jerky (I think) was rather hot. Just a pre warning.

Nice place but the service or cook needs to get the orders right. We had to return a salad & a tuna meal back because they screwed up the order.. Would've been nice if they offered a discount for the mishap. Not all meals came out all on time as well.
