Elegant Restaurant

We had heard great things about this place and decided to try it. White table cloths and nice atmosphere. Very extensive wine list - by the glass pricing seemed a little steep. Menu offered everything from steaks to seafood. We opted to share the 12 oz prime rib, which was very good. Our waitress... read more

They will bring a large relish dish to your table, so skip the appetizers. Great oysters! The dinner presentations were basic, but pretty good. Great place for a quiet evening and some live piano.

This is fine dining on Clearwater Beach (across the road from the beach). Step into this restaurant and be transported back to the fine dining era of the late 60's early 70's. Upscale food and atmosphere - polished wait staff. If you love fried southern fried chicken at it's best this is your place. It does take about 40-45 minutes... More

The restuarant interior is a bit dated although the food and service was excellent. Great range of fish and steaks beuatifully presented with a great selection of dips while you wait. The atmosphere is good with a great pianist playing in the background. All this at a reasonable price, all that is required is for the interior to be bought... More

Really lovely food spoiled by poor service and staff. We witnessed staff arguing with one another, we had a server that clearly wanted to be anywhere else but here and served drinks constantly in the same glass. When challenged this and I was told that it was restaurant policy not to refresh glasses if the drink was the same. For... More

If I had gone to dinner with any expectations whatsoever, I would've been incensed at how awful this restaurant is. Fortunately, I had low expectations, and so I found the beachcomber to be comical more than anything else. I'm pretty sure the food was from Costco. It was like something an octogenarian who had never cooked before might serve. I... More

I really like this place better then its sister restaurant, Beachcomber. I think the menu is better and honestly, less of the early bird crowd. The atmosphere is very nice wether you sit outside or in. I recommend this for adults with older kids, couples, etc. They have a great wine selection, innovative menu items and a nice staff.

Husband and I dropped by for lunch. We both enjoyed the black bean soup. I had shrimp Caesar salad, which had grilled shrimp on it and was quite hearty. Try the ginger molasses muffin, which comes out to the table along with traditional French baguette.

This place was cut out of history, and has never changed in the years we have been going there. If you get a chance, order the fried chicken and the oysters florentine!
