My wife and I met a gentleman at the pool bar at the Sheraton in June 2012. He told us he was Scott the Chili King and to go to Backwaters for dinner. We already had reservations at Rusty's in the Sheraton, but we were only in Clearwater for one night so we said....what the heck. Scott's recommendation was spot on. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner on the deck overlooking the water.
We started with the steamed assortment (oysters, shrimp, scallops and such). It was very good and the homemade bread that they served up went great with the steamer pot.
My wife also had a cup of the lobster bisque and a dinner salad for her main course.I had the grouper for dinner with sweet potato fries. Both were delicious. I had the grouper blackened. You can't go to the gulf without getting some grouper.
We went back to Rusty's at our hotel after dinner for Bananas Foster as a desert. Rusty's was nice but a bit stuffy. We were really glad that Scott recommended Backwaters. Thank you Chili King!!!
