We didn't know what to expect when we walked into the Beachcomber, but were pleasantly surprised. The live piano music enhanced our dining experience, and from the start you could tell this was a restaurant with a wonderful tradition. The starter that everyone gets is unique, and to our palates tasty and refreshing. Also an added bonus to every meal... More

We recently dined at Heilman's with 50 of our friends from our car club. This was the second time that we did an event with our group where we took a scenic cruise on the Intracoastal Waterway and followed the social with an early bird dinner at Bob Heilman's Beachcomber. The restaurant did a great job in seating our group... More

My wife and I loved the lunch that we ate there on our first day to Clearwater Beach! It looks very fancy inside but you don't have to dress up. It can be beach casual and great food and wine menu! Our waiter, Teddy, was awesome! Ask for him! My wife thought he did an incredible job!!

This is old school dining. I for one love the ambiance and charm the beachcomber has. And I'm told it used to be even better. We made reservations and sat in the music room. The volume and musical selections were perfect. I usually hate live dinner music, but this was perfect accompaniment for this establishment. The wine list is expansive... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the nearby hotel where we were staying. The ambiance is lovely. Soft live piano music was in the background the entire time we were dining. It is fine dining. I have food allergies and the server was knowledgeable and accomodating. The salads that accompanied the meal were generous and varied. I had a... More

I've been coming here since I was a child. Tonight I'm sad to say, was less than steller. My goodness it was terrible from the start. I'm so bummed I have to complain about an establishment that I've frequented more times than I can count. We made reservations a month ago for this evening. It's our wedding anniversary. We always...

We braved the traffic at Clearwater Beach on a Friday night and found our way to Bob Heilman's Beachcomber. Free valet parking was a nice touch. The restaurant has a somewhat elegant atmosphere, but many patrons were casually attired, coming in from 90+ degree temperatures! After drinks were ordered, a service of relishes was delivered to our table. There was... More

The waitress was poorly trained and the atmosphere looks like its straight out of the mad men era. The food was good. The live music was an old guy on a old piano/keyboard playing lounge/elevator music.

We came here for our "nice" night out as a family. It was definitley a step back in time which was ok. The relish tray was a little weird. The breads and muffins looked good but I couldn't eat as I need to be gluten free. My son said they were "ok". Dinner overall was good but a little pricey.

We walked in off the street and were pleasantly surprised by the decor and ambiance however that's where the good experience ended. We were seated and there we waited for what seemed forever for our order to be taken. Eventually our server arrived, who reminded me of someone from the golden girls! Other customers arrived and ordered their food, it... More
