Reasonably priced and good food. One block off of the beach this restaurant makes a great place to grab a lunch and enjoy a cold one after getting the sun on the beach.

We went here for Valentines Day. The atmosphere on the patio was excellent and some live music going on. Our server seemed like he was new at his job. He wasn't familiar with the menu and seemed nervous. Which is fine for me, but my fiancé was really irritated that the server didn't bring plates for our appetizer, never checked... More

Quite a menu, not average. I had a short rib dip that was good. I like their fries that are like steak fries, but curled. Not a fan of their coffee. Average meal, with tip lunch was right at $30 for my husband and I.

Over 3 trips to Clearwater Beach I've probably eaten here 10 times now and every time it's been fantastic. Love the bleu cheese burger and fantastic drink menu using local spirits.

this full service cafe is more like an all day elegant restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Happy hour is booming around the bar with locals and vacationers. The food is delicious and very reasonable and beautifully presented. We ate there twice but would have daily if we had tried it sooner. Friendly staff.

Good, but gets crowded. If you want to avoid screaming kids, think inside quieter, was there this morning and no kids inside or at bar, but on patio. Family with two young girls, one a screamer, were sat next to me and we're pretty disruptive, kid through menu at me, moved to breakfast bar. Shrimp and grits were delicious. Go... More

We went for dinner, then returned for breakfast the next morning. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals, and, I can personally recommend the California Flatbread and the Crepes Suzettes. Both were outstanding. The atmosphere was casual with both indoor and outdoor seating, and the staff was busy but efficient. It was kid friendly, but also great for adults, and had a... More
