Decent

Guess I expected more after hearing so much about the seafood/prime rib dinner. We went for breakfast. Nothing spectacular and not much to chose from. Mimosas would have been a nice addition. Service was good. Cheese danishes were quite good.

My review may be skewed by the fact that this meal was purchased with a gift card from Christmas and I didn't actually pay for it. I've eaten here twice, once before the renovation and recently after. It's like night and day. They did a great job improving the look of this restaurant. The view is very nice as well.... More

We heard about this buffet which had seafood and prime rib and decided to give it a try. HORRIBLE doesn't begin to describe the dull, drab tired, cold food that awaited us. This food was worse than a hospital cafeteria and had all the taste and imagination of a concession stand at a really bad amusement park. The crab legs... More

My girlfriend and I went here on Saturday evening. We really enjoyed our dinner here. Danielle was our server and she was very friendly and knowledgable about the best dishes of the day. The food was very tasty. The restaurant is one of the best I have been to in Clearwater.

What a treat and such fantastic decor! The food was great, bar service went above and beyond. A great view for sunset, just steps from the quiet part of the beach!

Dishonest server. Horrible service My family came from outside of U.S.A, and they don't speak english. But it doesn't mean that the server can be rude to us and we need to shut up and eat. The server gave the bill in the middle of the dinner and rushed them to finish their meal. The server kept asking how we... More

My husband and I visited Shephard's Ocean Flame seafood buffet and were totally impressed with the multitude of offerings they offered. From 4 types of steaks and prime rib to crab legs and mussels, this buffet offered so many selections that we actually couldn't try everything they had! All their food was fabulous and the newly decorated restaurant is beautiful.... More
