“Prime Rib Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Service is excellent. Sometimes they have specials on Sunday, we came and got the prime rib, it was one of the best I've ever had. Their menu is very wide as well.

“clear sky breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

went on a holiday and fortunately was early enough to beat the crowd. Service was slow and food is somewhat pricey but good. Hard to park.

“Average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

My husband and I were excited to try this place since we were staying at the Sandpearl and it always looked busy. The food was pretty good and I loved the potato wedges. I ordered the loose crab cake sandwich but the crab was not prominent. The most memorable part was that our waitress was barely around. Thankfully the manager noticed our empty drinks, finished plates and credit card waiting to be swiped. A little disappointed in this place.

“Good Recovery But...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

We surveyed a lot of people in our search for a place to get good coffee and fresh fruit - Clear Sky came up often enough that we thought we would give it a try. We arrived too late for breakfast but the very accommodating waitress suggested a quiche with fresh fruit - I ordered that. My daughter ordered a veggie panini with fresh fruit. I ordered grapefruit juice. She ordered orange juice. We both had coffee. I would have given this review a poor except that the waitress and the manager went out of their way to make us happy.

I think I will probably give the restaurant a second chance next time I am in Clearwater Beach because the outdoor seating is nice and the staff is great. The food is another matter:
- the panini was tasty but the stale bread couldn't be helped by any amount of sauce
- the fresh fruit accompanying the panini was pretty good but on the aged side
- both juices were served at a tepid temperature and were pretty tasteless
- the quiche was tasty but had the consistency of 'instant' eggs rather than real eggs
- the fruit that accompanied the quiche was old, soggy and frankly unservable but there it was on the plate. The waitress went back to get replacement strawberries but declared that they were all not good so she brought blackberries as a substitute. These were semi-frozen.
- the coffee was good but served in too small cups and no refills came until we asked
- the lemons that garnished our water were brown

The manager came and asked how things were going - not wanting to raise a fuss we hesitated, he pushed, we told him and he comp'd the quiche. That was a nice recovery to what was a very disappointing brunch.

“Very Good Breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

My family ate breakfast here on our first morning in Clearwater Beach. It was recommended by the concierge at the Sandpearl and we are so glad we tried it. We had a 10 month old baby with us and sat outside. The restaurant staff was nice to "park" our stroller for us out of the way. Everyone really enjoyed their breakfasts - we tried a breakfast burrito, pancakes, omelette, and various side dishes and we all cleared our plates! Delicious! Wish we could have tried it for dinner, but it will be on our list someday when we return! Service was very good, too. Great way to start our vacation!
