4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

I have no words to describe the awesome breakfast and service we received each morning at Clear Sky. This is truly a gem.

“Pricey but good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Food was excellent. Drinks were excellent. Live music was good. Service was friendly and fast given the crowd on the night we ate dinner here. Shrimp and cheese grits were absolutely yummy as were the ravioli and lobster mac and cheese. The french onion soup was different, a little thicker and heavier than most but I found it tasty and the bread bowl was excellent. I understand their breakfast is also a "can't miss" but, alas, we had to.

“Awesome Meal almost ruined by Hostess”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

This would have gotten 5 stars except for the hostess.

My girlfriend and I were here this past Saturday. We got to the restaurant around 7:00. At the time, there were two hostesses. One was busy, the other was walking around like she was either high or really distracted. Anyway, we wanted to sit on the patio, but she explained it would be a wait because they had a couple of large parties. When we asked how long, she said 35 minutes. 75 minutes later we were finally sat. You might ask why we stuck around, but we just couldn't believe it would be too much longer and besides, by the time 8:00 rolled around, where else would we go? By the time we got somewhere else, there's a good chance they would have finally called us. When we were finally sat, multiple servers commented on how bad they felt we were waiting so long. It's one thing to be 10-15 minutes off on your wait time, but 40 minutes is insane.

The only reason I am not giving the place 3 stars is because everything after we sat was great. Firstly, the manager comped an appetizer for us for our wait. We got the Lobster Risotto balls. This is a must have if you eat here. They are amazing. We also both got a drink - mine was a Key Lime Martini and hers was a frozen rum runner - both delicious. For dinner, they have an usual pasts - a southwest fettucini - made with pico, tequila, lime, peppers and onions in a ranchero cream sauce. I got mine with chicken and she got shrimp> My only complaint was how it was served, with the chicken just sliced and sitting on top. It would have been better if it was cubed and mixed in with the sauce because without the sauce, the chicken was a bit bland. The pasta though was fantastic. We both loved it.

The sign at this place says its the best breakfast on Clearwater Beach, and they do have an excellent looking breakfast menu. For that matter, their entire menu looks great, and I am sure my girlfriend and I will be back multiple times.

Our service was great, food was delicious, and it was nice that the manager recognized that we got screwed and bought us the appetizer. I'm glad we waited because otherwise, we may have never checked out the place again. So as bad as it started, it ended wonderfully.

“Cafe with beach view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

We ate on the outdoor patio within view of the beach. Eclectic menu, good prices. Chicken satay, citrus Caesar salad, mahi sandwich all very good. Highly recommend. We will return to sample the breakfast and dinner menus.
