Good food done well. Steaks and seafood. Great wine list. Not like most restaurants in the area which tend to be fried food like burgers and chips. Lobster and steaks were good. Homemade dips and breads were excellent.

Our family (6 adults and 3 kids under 4) came right off the beach and were welcomed into the restaurant with no problem. Christopher, our waiter, was so friendly and accommodating. Best restaurant in Clearwater by far.
