Brown Boxer is a 3 star place that deserves to be rounded up to 3.5 stars. I know how little sense that makes - why wouldn't I just say its a 3.5 star that I am rounding down to 3? Because, that sounds insulting, but if I say its a 3 star place that I am rounding up to 3.5, then it sounds complimentary.
If you knew me, you'd understand I rarely make any sense.
Anyway, is Brown Boxer worthy of your attention. Absolutely. Is it to die for? No.
The best thing about the Boxer is its location and set up. It's right on Mandalay Ave, so it's on the beach (technically, the other side of the street, but close enough). They also have both outdoor seating and open air seating which allows you to either sit outside, or sit inside but with the wall open so you get some air.
It's a great sports bar, with a ton of TV's, good beer selection, full bar, and plenty of bar food and your favorite sports bar appetizers. Food-wise, I wasn't too impressed. I got the pulled pork sandwich. It was far from the best I had ever had, but it was also far from the worst. It was decent.
So why am I rounding up to 3.5 stars? Well, location and setup is a big deal. It's just a nice laidback, open air, sports bar. Also...pudding shots. I am not kidding - you've heard of jello shots? Well they have pudding shots. We got a cookies and cream and also an espresso pudding shot. It was drinks and dessert all in one. YUM!
I understand they have other locations. I'm not sure any location is better than this one though. The biggest problem is the same problem with everything in Clearwater Beach - parking. But if you can find a place to park and are looking for a casual place to grab a bite after a day at the beach or to watch a game, you can't go wrong here.
