My husband and I were staying in Madeira Beach but decided to take the Suncoast Trolley into Clearwater one night for dinner. After searching on Trip Advisor we finally decided on Shor. We wanted a nice romantic meal, great ocean views, amazing food, and awesome service...and thats exactly what we got! From the moment we walked into the lobby of the Hyatt hotel we immediately noticed how helpful the staff were. Someone greeted us and directed us to the restaurant. We had called ahead to make a reservation and since we arrived early we decided to grab a quick drink at the bar. The gentleman working behind the bar was extremely patient with us, as there were many different choices and we had a hard time choosing a drink! I had a mango/peach martini (can't remember its exact name!) and my husband had a Jai Alai beer. (Its an IPA beer from Tampa) Both were great!! We sat at the bar for about 10 minutes and the young lady (hostess) came over to tell us our table was ready. She led us to a table outside with an amazing view!! Our server quickly greeted us, introduced himself, and informed us of the specials for the evening. As we looked over the menu, he brought out some pretzel bread complimentary. It was so good!! Warm pretzel bread served with a fancy mustard dipping sauce! I ordered the chili lime mahi mahi. I opted for mashed potatoes instead of the jasmine rice it was served with and also broccolini instead of asparagus. It was by far the best meal I had had in a long time. The fish was so fresh, seasoned and cooked perfectly. It also had a tropical salsa that it was served with and it paired perfectly with the mahi mahi! The sides were great as well. My husband had the 12 oz. angus ribeye served with mashed potatoes and sautéed mushrooms. It was huge!! He loved his meal as much as I did! Our server was exceptional! He talked to us for a while about moving from central Florida to the coast, and also asked us about our hometown. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and was just all around a great server! To top off our amazing service and meal, we had an incredible view!! We watched the sunset and took plenty of pictures. We have been home from our vacation for over a week and are still talking about our meal and service at Shor! We are even considering staying at the Hyatt next time we are in Clearwater. It is without a doubt the nicest hotel, has the best service, and an awesome restaurant with the best views in Clearwater! We would recommend this restaurant to anyone!! It was the best!! Cant wait to go back!!
*On a side note-the restaurant is also kid friendly! They had a mini buffet bar set up for children that looked so good, I wanted to have it! :) Mac and cheese, veggies and dip...were a couple things I noticed! We actually overheard a family sitting near us raving about the kids buffet and how it was such a great value! Definitely a place to check out if you're traveling with kids!
** They also were advertising for their Easter Brunch! I peaked at the menu and it took looked amazing!! I honestly can't say enough good things about SHOR!!
