I went here last night with a friend it said on the board outside that it was vegan friendly. We went inside and looked at the menu but there wasn't and vegetarian meals on the menu, in fact there wasn't one option for vegans. My friend ordered the chicken dinner, I said that I would have the vegetables without the... More

Been in business since 1948 and it shows. Very traditional, but also very good food. Excellent service. I would definitely recommend this place if you are tired of eating grouper sandwiches or fried shrimp at the other restaurants along Mandalay in Clearwater.

We ate here on four occasions. The early bird is great value, but we particularly enjoyed the piano player in the evening time. The ribs were delicious and steaks also. You certainly won't be hungry leaving there. The decor is a bit dated but if you can put up with that then its worth a try.

Visited this place twice and it was excellent both times. The food was excellent and the staff really helpful. I especially loved the fresh breads and pickle tray, I've never seen this before. Would definitely re visit when back in. Clearwater!

Five of us enjoyed a fabulous lunch! Our server, Kevin, was superb; the food was delicious and served in a timely fashion; and the prices are amazingly low for such an upscale dining experience. I will definitely return for special occasions and happily recommend it to fellow travelers and local friends. GREAT EXPERIENCE, beginning to end!

We ate here when on vacation in Clearwater beach. It's certainly very different from some of the neighbouring restaurants! Menu is more limited than some other places but what they do they do really well. The steaks are excellent - great quality cooked to perfection. The bread, crackers and dips are a nice touch. Portions are very big - my... More

Good food and a wonderful pianist knocking out one tune after another. We were there three times. Check out the early bird for great value.

To much money for food out of a freezer. But great bar and music. Went with a group and some of the people liked their food.
