Eugen Fuhrmann started the Lobster Pot Restaurant in Bermuda. After making that restaurant successful he then came to the United States in 1978 to open the Lobster Pot Restaurant in Reddington Shores, Florida with Erwin Scheuringer as the Chef. In 1985 together both Eugen and Erwin opened Eugen's Restaurant in Belleair Bluffs. Which led to fine dining and older clientele. In 1995 the restaurant was remodeled and opened with its new southwestern look as E & E Stakeout Grill. In 1992, again both Eugen and Erwin along with Scott Bebell (who at that time was working as the Sous Chef at Eugen's Restaurant) opened Guppy's On The Beach. In April of 1999 Eugen sold his interest in the Lobster Pot Restaurant

DELECTABLE & DIVINE Exceptional & Exquisite E&E Steakhouse is definitely a dining experience not to miss! The steaks and presentation makes it that much more desirable. The staff is attentive and catering. Don't be fooled this is not just a Steakhouse despite its name they...have excellent seafood choices as well as duck, lamb and venison. They have a very extensive early-bird menu (but a small window for these specials so be sure to reserve a table) Reservations recommended regardless. The manager stopped by to see how the meals were. Everything was excellent. This place is TOP NOTCH and overall very reasonable. We enjoyed the Shrimp cocktail and the Lobster- scargo appetizer, the early-bird Rodeo steak and filet mignon (both cooked perfectly) the daily vegetable selection was "fresh and tasty" the salad and soup were very good we upgraded to the french onion it was the best Perfect (not too salty like others) we had a several drinks each and were surprised with a nice Birthday desert too! This place is worth the drive and we will be back.More

Based on TripAdvisor reviews husband & I had a wonderful dining experience here tonight. We arrived early enough to take advantage of the early menu & were not disappointed by anything. The server was excellent and very attentive. Husband had the salmon and I had...the short ribs. Both meals were exceptionally delicious. Meals came with warm rolls and a dipping sauce & Cesar salads. We even splurged and shared the chef’s choice dessert of a delicious trifle with cream, berries & cake. Everything from beginning to end was first class. We’ll be back & bring friends.More

This restaurant is excellent. Nice dining room with some outdoor seating available. Nice choice of drinks. I had a gimlet which had cinnamon in it, which worked really well. For dinner my wife had the weinerschnitzel, which was a special. Really good. I had oysters...followed by the delmonico steak. Everything was great. Nice wine list, priced reasonably. The menu here has a lot of choices, plus a few specials, so it is hard to decide what to have!More

My wife and I have driven by this place a few times and had never found the time to stop by until recently. We did not have reservations however, we were seated immediately. (It was a Wednesday evening.) They have a fairly extensive menu with...nightly specials and a full bar. All of the food items we had were excellent and the price, though not cheap, was a little less than some other fine dining establishments in the region. Our waiter was also very attentive, friendly, and patient with us since it was our first visit. There is also ample off-street parking and the place appeared to be clean and well-maintained. While I would recommend dressing at least business casual for this restaurant, there were patrons in all manner of dress and I did not see them turning anyone away because of how they were attired. I would highly recommend this place for a very nice dinner.More

We had a fantastic meal. The food was excellent as well as the service. We sat outside on the covered patio. Matthew 2as our server, he was superb. I ordered the whole Maine lobster, which was broiled. The claw meat was removed from the shell....It was served with fresh broccoli & choice of side. I had the garlic mashed potatoes, which were great. My wife had the crab cakes. Again with 2 sides. They were pretty good & filling, she could only eat 1, took one home. Our friend had the Bookmaker, which was greatMore

Food was excellent and our waiter Tony went out of his y to ensure his customers had a amazing dining experience. This is a local neighborhood gem that we stumbled upon and would come back to for sure next time vacationing in Clearwater area.

We visited E&E in April after a COVID absence. On that occasion everything was near perfect. However, tonight was a different experience. Our waiter, Gian, was very casual (and slow) the entire evening. We were seated at 6:40 and five minutes later he came by...and asked for drink orders and if we wanted bread. He reappeared five minutes later with our drinks and brought two plain white rolls (E&E has always brought three rolls each a different variety). We had placed our menus down and he said I guess you're ready to order. He took our order and 25 minutes later he came by and apologized that it was taking so long (to cook a ribeye medium and spoon up some short-ribs). He asked if we would like some more bread while we waited and we both replied yes. He then brought us ONE more plain white roll. By the time our meal arrived (35 minutes after ordering) we had lost our appetite and were ready to get out of there. The food was very good, although it had the temperature of having sat on the prep table waiting to be picked up too long. I cannot say I will not return to E&E, but not to have the same waiter. I might note that patrons seated around us with the same waiter got the same type service (two white rolls and long waits), but those with another waitress received prompt and what appeared to be excellent service (including the usual three varietal rolls). E&E needs to retrain this waiter or let him go.More

I hadn’t been to E&E in a few years, but was meeting family over there for a birthday dinner after a long day of work and was looking forward to it. Apps were ordered - escargot and ahi tuna - and both were very nice....The main courses took a bit to come out but eventually they did. The picture will show what my “medium-rare” steak looked like. The server didn’t return to our table for a while, which would normally be fine if the meals were correct. When she did return and I showed her the steak, she assured me the order had been inputted correctly but she would take it back. At this point, most of my family had nearly finished their meals, as naturally I had told them to enjoy their meal while it was warm. The steak took another twenty minutes or so to come out, and when the manager ought it to the table, he apologized for the “shamefully and embarrassingly overcooked” steak. The second steak was fine, and cooked as I had expected it to be originally, but was eaten in front of a family who were made to wait longer than they should have after finishing their properly cooked meals. If it weren’t a steakhouse, I wouldn’t have been as disappointed. But, for a place known for steak to get one so wrong, it made the experience all the more frustrating. I might be back eventually, but it’ll be a while.More

We were on vacation in Clearwater to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. We did not know where to celebrate on our anniversary. We checked Trip Advisor and other websites and came upon E&E Stake Out Grill. We called and made our reservations. We pulled up...to the restaurant which is located in a strip mall. Do not let this deter you. Inside is a tastefully decorated upscale restaurant, perfect for our anniversary dinner. The wait staff was attentive, the ambiance perfect and the food was wonderful. We could not have chosen a more perfect restaurant to celebrate our anniversary.More

Good food but not taking Covid precautions. Zero masks. Seemed to show disdain toward those who wear masks. Suggest take-out only.
