Restaurants within walking distance to Sandpearl

Any recommendations? We won't have a car. We are without our son, so would prefer a more romantic atmosphere to a family-oriented one. We will be there in July. Thanks!

Many of the restaurants in Clearwater Beach are very casual restaurants with live music - not really romantic settings, but they are fun. The area has some wonderful Gulf view restaurants with lovely patios to sit and enjoy their live music.

Frenchy's Rockaway Grill and Palm Pavilion are to the north of your hotel, very casual beachfront, good views, great sunsets and live music.

There is also a Crabby's Beachwalk restaurant with good views of the beach and sunset and live music. This is another very casual safood restaurant. It is located south of the Pier.

You didn't mention your age. Very close to your hotel is Bob Heilmans Beachcomber. It attracts an older crowd, is somewhat dressy and more formal with white tablecloths and piano music. The younger crowd is not as impressed with this restaurant, but many older folk enjoy it..

The Sandpearl has a lovely upscale restaurant with tablecloths and Gulf view. If you are looking for an upscale restaurant, you might enjoy the restaurant right in your hotel. The Sandpearl also has a beachfront bar with Adirondack chairs directly on the beach, nightly bonfire and beautiful sunset views.

If you are looking for a good breakfast spot, Clear Sky Beachside Cafe has a very nice breakfast (as well as good any time food). It is located on the street just north of your hotel.

Clearwater Wine Bar and Bistro serves excellent wines and small plate service. If you like wine bars, it is very close to your hotel and might be worth checking out.

Florida Free Rides provides free rides for the price of a tip. If you called them, you could go further from your hotel. They will take you over the bridge to Sand Key to the Columbia Restaurant. The Columbia is located on the intracoastal with great water views (not sunset) from their window seats (with cloth tablecloths) or their more casual patio. This is one of my favorite restaurants. http://www.floridafreerides.com

Thanks so much for all of the great info! We are in our 30s if that helps. We don't mind taking a cab to somewhere a little farther away if there's somewhere we can't miss. The wine bar definitely looks like it can work for us and I'll check the menus of the others. Thanks again!

Frenchy's Rockaway Grill, and the Palm Pavilion are a short walk to the north. These are separated by only a parking lot, so you can walk to each to check them out. Very good fresh food at both. Very casual, and live music at times, with outdoor seating on decks right on the beach. Great place for drinks and/or a good meal. This Frenchy's gets very busy so there is usually a wait at busier times.

If you don't mind a cab ride (or Florida Free Rides), the Island Way Grill is located in Island Estates and is one of the better restaurants in Clearwater Beach and is more formal (this is a very casual area, so dressy casual is usually appropriate anywhere). This restaurant has a large menu, as well as large wine list and serves good seafood, steak, and sushi.

I know this is going to sound weird. We have been here since Saturday. Have had amazing meals at Clear Sky, Fencheys Rock AWay, Palm Pavilllion, Brown Boxer and more at Clear Sky

But .....we had the very best oysters today at Hooters. Yes, Hooter a chain we would normally never have food at. 18 for 12, 36 for 18 roasted oysters served in a bucket! We are from Seattle and know good oysters

Going back for dinner- sooo good!

Glad you are enjoying your visit. That is a nice Hooters! Just opened a year or so ago.

If you get along the south part of the beach, may want to check out Jimmy's Fish House & Iguana Bar inside the Holiday Inn. Very good food and seating right next to the water. Very nice atmosphere.

Between the pier and the above Holiday Inn is Crabby Bill's BeachWalk. Go upstairs for the best view. Very good food and drinks here also. Have fun !!

Hi Sandy

Try The Bait House at the marina. You can't get any closer to the water than their location and they always have a great selection of fish. Hopefully the kitchen is back open, they had a fire a while back. Sounds like you,re finding all the great spots to eat!!
