I ordered the so famous grouper sandwich! Never again! Served in a plastic basket over paper to absorb part of the grease.. But a full packet of serviettes wouldn't be enough to absorb it all!!! I could literally see the grease falling from my sandwich, and to think I asked for a grilled (not fried) grouper! Prices over the average.

Everything you could ask for on the beach in Clearwater. Wonderful grouper choices (recommend the sandwich). Fine beach drink options (a little small for the price). Amazing views of the sunset and the beach activities. Parking can be sparse in the late afternoon so plan accordingly.

Grouper, Rum Runners, and Sunsets! This is a large, old-time Florida, beachy, casual restaurant that is one of those "Do not miss" places....and it actually serves great food! The Grouper anything is a must. I would suggest getting there EARLY to get a seat on the patio against the rail to watch the sun melt into the gulf!

The resturant is locate directly on the beach with a pay parking lot adjacent. The location is fantastic -we went to watch the sunset ans were not disappointed. We ordered crab artichoke dip, which was ok and onion straws that had a good dipping sauce. The rum runners were very good as was the service. We would go back again... More

This restaurant was average for me. The food was good but nothing different or unique from any other bar restaurant. We were annoyed because we sat at a table by the bar & we could smell smoke the entire time we were eating. The other side of the bar was outside so they allowed those people to smoke at the... More

The location is fantastic and the food ok. I found that eating outside on a table for 6 there was not a lot of room and the waiting staff were continually knocking into chairs in order to get buy. Apart from this the food tasted good but not outstanding. Prices are what you expect on the beach. There is a... More

We have been here 3 times now during our one week stay. The shrimp in a hat appetizer. Oh my. Absolutely delicious! And the blackened grouper sandwich was great. Service is always super friendly and fast. We might make one more stop here before we go home :)
