Description: Located on our 10th floor, Jimmy's Crow's Nest is the place to unwind after a day at the beach or a day of work. Our rooftop bar features views of the Intracoastal, downtown Clearwater, North Clearwater Beach, and the Gulf of Mexico. There is no better place to watch a sunset!

We were very excited to see that this bar had finally opened for business on our most recent trip to Clearwater. We made our first visit on a Saturday evening about 10pm. You would have thought we were invisible, as it took the staff at least 5 minutes to very briefly drop by our table with a menu before walking away again. We took this time to take in the view, which is undeniably awesome, but ended up leaving very shortly after as it was a bit too breezy for our liking & still had not received service.
The next day, about noon time, we decided to give it another go. The restaurant appears to be "seat yourself" style, but we were quickly shooed away from our first choice of seating, claiming it was "reserved" (but not marked as such??) Once we successfully seated ourselves elsewhere, we waited...and waited....and finally got up and got our own menus, only to be informed that their minimal menu choices were even more-so, as they were out of over half of the items listed. We again chose to take our business elsewhere without any notice by the minimal staff on-hand.
Definitely a disappointing experience for all the hype it's been given as of late. I hope they are able to step up their game to match the awesome location they occupy.

What a fun little gem in the city - great views of the beach and marina. Drinks were nice and strong. We were surprised to see a menu with wraps and quesadillas and not just regular fried bar food. Fun at night too, but chilly -- bring a sweater. We couldn't get a spot to sit at sundown. We waited until the crowds were gone a few hours later.

Met a buddy at Jimmy's Crows Nest for a few drinks. The place is a small rooftop bar that has a great view of most of Clearwater. A few TVs were on so we relaxed watching opening day baseball games. Prices were reasonable. All in all a great place to get away.

Basically, it really doesn't matter what they are serving because the view was totally worth it. We ordered drinks in the middle of the day and were joking that regardless of the cost of the drinks, it was time well spent. We were pleasantly surprised that they were very reasonable. I couldn't believe the place was not packed. Great atmosphere.

This place has the best view by far to watch the sunset in Clearwater. Cannot comment on the food as we did not eat but the drinks were decent, no draft beer but some good micros in a can. Free shot at sunset a bonus
