We were directed to this restaurant by the lady in the 'beach information' kiosk although I specifically asked for a personal opinion. We found the restaurant without difficulty. It is on the main street just north of the big public beach. We could walk from our hotel which was good for there didn't seem to be much parking.
Since we were at the beach, we both ordered seafood dishes. I had blackened grouper and my wife had blackened seafood with shrimp scallops and salmon. Both were good but definately spicey with Cajun flavor. There were many other seafood dishes also available. You could also have sandwiches and lighter fare. We had an appetizer and two dinners without alcohol for around $50. I guess this is about right for 'beach food' prices.
When we return to Clearwater Beach, we'll probably revisit for seafood but will probably go for grilled or fried rather than the blackened.

This restaurant is a sleeper. It's about a half block from the beach, across from the Sand Pearl Resort. It offers both indoors and outdoors dining, and people are comfortable in casual wear. Parking is free but limited, and parking can be a problem when the beach is crowded. Despite its casual atmosphere, the food selection and feel of the place is a bit more adult-oriented than family-oriented. Not really a family restaurant... It has a full bar and its menu is trendy. It's what happens when Florida and California palettes collide, much to my delight. Prices seem higher than average, but that doesn't prevent it from having long lines during weekend evenings. The outdoor seating is covered and often has live music. The cafe's claim to fame is that it attracts as many locals (repeat customers) as it does tourists. Finally, it is locally known for charitable contributions to the community -- something that only enhances its friendly and positive personality.

We were looking for someplace to have a good, casual dinner on a Friday night in Clearwater Beach, and not knowing much about the area, we asked the "local" resident who was on duty at the front desk of our hotel; she un-hesitatingly recommended the Clear Sky and said it was a favorite of the locals in the know. Our taxi driver had high praise for this restaurant as well.

Even though most of "downtown" was quieter than expected, it felt like the whole town was in the Clear Sky restaurant. We got seated immediately (inside due to iffy weather), and the place was a beehive of activity, a good sign of a popular establishment.

Staff and patrons were very friendly, giving it a warm, lively atmosphere, and the food was excellent. It was hard to choose from the large number of menu selections. The Cuban sandwich was huge and loaded with fresh meats and ingredients, one of the best Cubans I have ever had. The steak was also near perfect, and their Key Lime pie was top-notch. Service was very attentive for a busy night, also a big plus.

It was not hard to see why this restaurant was so highly recommended by the locals (and TripAdvisor members!) We were there, pre-cruise, on a slow weekend right after New Year's - Jan.4 - but during the high season, expect a crowd! Our only regret was that we would not be in Clearwater the next day to come back and try another lunch or dinner here. But next year we will certainly return, and Clear Sky will be at the top of our restaurant list in Clearwater Beach.
