Down for Spring Training - this is year 15 you cannot beat the food here we have been coming here since it was the Waterfront Restaurant - we dine here every year - breakfast is great - dinner is also same quality as breakfast dined twice during our week visit - first dinner - food and service - perfect - second visit - waiter from New Jersey - sorry - gotta go - terrible service - and being from Philly I am used to bad service but this guy gave eveyone bad service - my entree did not come to the table at the same time as my wife's - I sat there for a while - Jersey shore came over and said - your entree is not here? Well no Sxxx! Got two apologies from him and another employee - the guy needs some training or some help - we love the Clear Sky we will be back but I will keep an eye if the situatiion is still employed and avoid

“Best Breakfast!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

Ate here three times in four days. Delicious french toast: try the coffee flavored one. Very good service. Even if there is a line it moves quickly.

You will not be disappointed.

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

We found this gem our last day but we really enjoy it. The fruits crepe were delightful. I love my eggs Benedicts too. Fresh orange juice is always good to start your day. They have a lobster special on friday. The service could be better, they are to busy to even smile, anyway the food was superb, we will come back in our next trip.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

We enjoyed this restaurant, but the atmosphere left something to be desired. It is March and we are at the height of tourist season, so the lineup was very long - despite being 8 in the evening AND a week night. Instead of waiting for a table on the patio, we chose to eat inside. There was very loud music playing, and and our table was almost on top of the table next to it, making it very difficult to hear my husband talk.

Having said that, the food was very good, the service was quick, efficient and pleasant. The prices are a bit higher than the average beach restaurant, but it seems all of the restaurant prices have gone up in the past year. If you are looking for good food, try this restaurant. If you are looking for fine dining - go somewhere else.

“Great Food and Drinks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

This cafe has a lot of variety! The bloody mary bar in the mornings is an experience itself. The dinner menu has a big variety but is was all good. And Wino Wednesdays for half price bottles of wine was a great value!
We will be returning!!
