Whom ever gave this restaurant a disappointing review was an idiot. Best dinner I think I've ever had in a long long time. Best veal piccata ever. Service was great and the pianist played all my favorite billy Joel and Elton John songs. I wish we had a beachcomber like this in st. Augustine where we are from. Being a... More

The "two for twenty-eight early bird special" was a real deal when combined with excellent food. We five had four salmon dinners and one had their famous chicken dinner. The relish tray and roll /bread assortment made for a great start. The salmon with sauce was perfect, the creamy coleslaw and fried eggplant dishes were off the chart. We closed... More

Inside of restaurant absolutely FREEZING, so we went out to the patio where there was music blaring that reminded us of a kiddie piano plinking away at old standards.. Ordered a shrimp over greens, but it was drenched in mayonaisse and not edible. If you don't mind the cold or the loud music, the meat and fish might be ok.... More

While on Clearwater Beach you'd think an upscale restaurant like Bob Heilman's would have great fish..... while the fish might have been fresh, the chef killed it. We were with a lagre party and didn't reorder. Those who got the prime rib or steak were happy. There are too many other great restaurants to go to.

Excellent food. Everything very fresh. Great menu selections. The nicest restaurant on the strip. Comfortable, casual ambiance with accommodating and attentive waitstaff. It had an old world elegance about it which we enjoyed!

Upon the recommendation of my sister, my wife and I dined at Heilman's Beachcomber on Clearwater Beach. We arrived at 6 PM and left at 8 thoroughly enjoying two hours of gracious dining under the care of Jorge a first class waiter. Our experience took us back to dining with our parents in great supper clubs that had great food... More

This is a classy great ambiance restaurant. They serve a great chicken meal with all the trimmings which is my favorite. My son loved the steak and my grandson loved the ribs.

My husband and I both grew up in Clearwater. His family goes back several generations here and my family since 1952. The beachcomber has been our favorite restaurant for many years for special occasions and when we want a really good seafood dinner and don't feel like cooking. We took our daughter and her husband there for her birthday dinner... More
