Ate dinner here one night and had the most delicious steak I think I've ever had. Juicy and succulent and just so flavoursome. I would love to go back!

We sat at the bar twice and had escargot and drinks. There was a person playing the piano. Crowded, good vibe. We loved it.

This is the most upscale restaurant in Clearwater Beach we've found, yet they welcome travelers and families, no problem. Several tables were in business professional attire, some in polos and jeans, others in nicer shorts. It was packed on a Tuesday night. Seemed a pharmaceutical group was in town. I noticed a few kids at the restaurant (ours is just... More

Made reservations here to celebrate hubby's birthday on a recommendation from the hotel concierge. The Beachcomber's attempt at 70's throwback is a total failure. Upon arrival, and throughout our entire meal, we were treated with total indifference by the hostess and waitstaff. The mood was completely funereal. We were not welcomed and were ignored by every person on staff that... More

The restaurant was recommended by two different individuals, so there was a high expectation that was not met. The food was good, but average for the price point of the menu. We made a reservation to assure seating in the formal dining room. However it was pointless as they focus on "first come, first seated" instead. And disappointingly, we ended... More

This is a great deal. It is a special menu that includes different breads, a relish tray, soup or salad, entree and a dessert for 2 people. The food is good and the service was very good. We were meeting with friends we have't seen in a long time and our waitress, Rene, gave us just the right amount of... More

We stayed in Clearwater for a week and selected this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. They had a nice outside seating area, lots of wooden paneling in the restaurant and a nice looking bar area (we hadn't realised you could go in just for a drink). The tables were a little too close together for our liking, but we enjoyed... More

We loved the place! I kept waiting for the "Godfather" to walk in. It is not "new" and flashy. It's 1960's dining at it's best. The mussels were perfection. Not many restaurants serve a bean soup with the meal. Beachcomber does and it was better than mine! The grouper was one of the best my husband has ever had. My... More

We were there for their Two for $28 special on Sunday, February 15th at 11:30. Special goes until 5 or you can order from their regular lunch menu. Seamus was our waiter and he was exceptional as were our meals. My husband had the half fried chicken (famous recipe since 1910) and I had the prime rib rare. The french... More
