This is an old school treat with impeccable service. The fish melted in our mouths. Also the server George brought out a relish dish and wonderful, warm breads that were a delectable start. Also, George was a great server.

When visiting Clearwater beach, it's nice to take time out from the touristy fried fish places and dine at a part of Clearwater's history. The Beachcomber is a place where you dress up a little more than shorts and flip flops and enjoy table clothes and relaxed dining. Dinner starts out with an old fashioned relish tray complete with crackers,... More

Leisurely upscale dining, great service and food. A no rush service restaurant. Wonderful for special occasions or banquets. Across the street from Clearwater Beach.

Went with my family during Spring break for dinner. Server was extremely cold and did not look like she liked her job much. We asked her to box up our food and she expected is to walk out of this 'upscale' restaurant with our boxes in our hands - she didn't put them in a bag. She looked annoyed the... More

We were visiting Winter the Dolphin at Clearwater Aquarium and my friend recommended this place and she was right. Amazing prime rib, great table outside, great garnishes (I didn't even know I liked cottage cheese?), and I could have licked the apple butter bowl. Great dinner, good classic service, and perfect location. We took a sunset stroll after dinner. Love... More

On our 2nd visit we chose the lighter room with the sailing theme. No music, and server was not articulate because of her foreign language. Specials were mostly chicken, but the fried chicken was excellent as was the salmon. Next time we will specify darker dining room because of musician and better servers. It is still the best valuein Cearwaterbeach

After trying to figure out where our family of four (two older teen daughters) would dine on our last night at the beach, we asked our server at our hotel what place he would recommend. He said the Beachcomber. We had 6:30 reservation and got there 20 min. early. We were seated right away. The dinning room we were in... More

As other reviews say, this place has been around for a while but has kept its standards high. The service experience was a little unusual, but all of our food was good quality and at reasonable prices.

This is an old school family run place. Old school in the right ways. Big place, busy, noisy, but very nice. We had very good service. The menu is fairly extensive. Entrees included salads and sides. Prices are pretty reasonable considering the food quality and street address. I went out on a limb and tried something new for me. Frog... More

I overheard the waitress tell some diners that they the restaurant was in year 66 with the same family as owners...our food was good, not great, but very good food and large portions. We enjoyed the filet and the seafood platter, both are served with a salad choice and side item. The salads were wonderful, we enjoyed the beefsteak tomato... More
