We used to go here all the time to hear reggae music etc. the techno DJ appeals to a small fraction of people and age groups. I bet you sales will suffer for that decision. We brought a boat full of people, paid to get in and left because of the music

Was so looking forward for the Buffet to open and finally on this trip they were finally opened. The new dining room was very nice, but the buffet was a big disappointment except for the crab legs, oysters, shrimp. They do not have the craving table anymore and no more prime rib and sliced turkey. The entrees are serviced in... More

It was a party like environment. The bar was hopping and there was live entertainment. The light show would rival any old style disco ball... lol...

My husband and I and a few others went to Shepard's to grab a drink. There was a DJ playing good music but there was a cover charge to get in. A female bartender there was extremely rude. The crowd is younger. A lot of shoeless drunk individuals acting silly. Witnessed one guy being hauled off in handcuffs.

The only thing good about this place is the location. All they do here is serve drinks to minors and encourage the drunk people to keep drinking. My family and I didn't feel safe there except for the EMS truck that is nearby to take all the drunk people to the hospital. If you like really strong drinks and loud... More

Since we were staying next door in the Holiday Inn we wanted somewhere local to eat so came to Shepard's. The breakfast was so nice and the server the most friendly we had the whole time in Clearwater. We ate on the decking overlooking the gulf and it was perfect!
