What a great restaurant! First the atmosphere - the restaurant is very classy when you walk in - high ceilings, beautifully set tables. We elected to sit outside which was wonderful it was private but you could still ppl watch and the lights made it like a little fancy patio. Our Waiter was extremely attentive and helpful and was charming.... More

This is one of the best places for Prime Rib. We enjoy eating at the bar and listening to the pianist. We've also eaten in the dinner room. The service is great and the food has always been great.

First visit was as a couple and service and food was great. Loved the piano in the background and overall ambiance. Second visit less pleasant. Server was less than friendly and order of scallops not cooked well. Looking around the restaurant it seemed to be 'faded' and in need of an update. Parking is adequate for the area.

this was our 6th visit to Clearwater Beach. I have wanted to go here ever since we have been going. This time we made it. There were 7 in our party. (2) From Arkansas (2) California (3) Wisconsin. I had my mind set on the Filet. Then a waitress brought out some "PAN FRIED CHICKEN" omg! It smelled soooo yummy!... More

Not the first time here and again with a large group of people. I'm afraid that it seems to be sliding downhill...appetizers were good, seafood tower (but not really a tower), drinks were good, even house wine but the steaks were poorly cooked, strange cuts and tough, Alaskan King Crab legs tasted like they'd been heated up too many times....

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
