Excellent service, quality food and great atmosphere. Setting was quiet for a large room. Good wine selection and menu had a wide variety for selection.

We made reservations for 8 people at 6:00 pm on Tues. We had no problems with our seating and the restaurant was only half filled. Service was great and the setting was very comfortable. I ordered the fried chicken and it was enough for two and was very good. Really enjoyed the service and food. Will come back.

I seriously debated between two and three stars here but ultimately went with two, given the experience we had and the price point of this establishment. On a recent trip to Clearwater, a coworker suggested we check this place out based on the Yelp reviews and knowing he wanted someplace with nice seafood and a good wine list. We arrived... More

Granted I was a bit hesitant bc I am soooo picky with food, quality and freshness has to be up to par. this was ok. my kids fried shrimp looked like it had been microwaved from a frozen bag. our roasted rib eye was...

Have enjoyed Heilman's for 40 years. One of my top two favorite restaurants in Florida. The other being Joe's Stone Crab in Miami Beach. Service has been consistently outstanding and the food always fresh and well prepared. Desserts are outstanding as well. Bar scene is exceptional with the best martini in Florida.This is a classic restaurant very hard to find... More

Ugh I have no idea how anyone could say this place is great?? The only thing good going on in here is the piano player! We walked in and they took us back to the lounge area since they are having the air conditioning fixed. I felt like I stepped into the 70s! There are about 15 tables back there... More

I have had friend chicken every where and trust me when I say this there is none better than Beachcomber. This place is a staple and mine and my wife's favorite place. There is no place in would rather eat than here. Come enjoy the great food and drinks.

Bob Heilman's is classic restaurant with tint but beautiful old bat and one of the dining rooms is retro and amazing and the other is modern and bright and beautiful. If you like lunch or dinner with attentive professional wait staff and a great menu and food in a beautiful classic restaurant don't miss Bob Heilman's. Great cocktails, wine list,... More
