Place was busy Monday night. Walked in and there was a cloud of smoke inside from lava rocks. Bartender had to many customers at bar and patio to provide good service. Had a beer and left.

We visited for drinks only and enjoyed the visit. Staff knows their products and are able to match desired drinks very easily. Music was nice, too. Pick up buy one get one drink coupons at the Visitor's Center.

First time here. We are dunedin residents who venture to Clearwater beach often to try new places. It wasnt too crowded so it felt nice and homey. The servers were very knowledgable about the craft beers and the wine. The food was very nice. Small portions but the prices aren't very high for the small plates. Very nice feel. There was a guitarist this night that made it feel very Mediterranean. I'll come again for sure.

We visited here 3 times, and ate twice. The food and the wine were excellent and we had a lovely gentleman and dark haired lady who served us on our second visit. The lava rock meals are delicious and a welcome change from the massive portions I can't manage. Now for the but... the lady who owned the bar, or that is who I assumed she was, was not particularly welcoming and in fact she was why we didn't eat here more.

As a Clearwater, Fl resident, I am the first one to support local businesses and applaud them for opening in Clearwater. I have driven by Cork and Brew many times and thought how cute it looks and how welcoming it is to have another restaurant on the beach. Friends and I went for dinner. Outside seating fine - fans to keep you cool. However, this is really not a place for dinner, as the menu is quite limited with high prices (come on folks this is Clearwater). My husband and I like to bring our own wine as we have an extensive wine collection. Our first mistake was not calling ahead to check on corkage fees. But honestly, they charge $30.00. If anyone reads Wine Spectator, especially the restaurant issue, you will see that restaurants with award winning wine selections charge from $15 upwards but most in our area are max $20. Again, key words - winning wine selection. So when Cork and Brew with a limited wine list (one that we chose to purchase off of their menu they didn't have) charges $30 for opening my bottle I find this ridiculous!

Aside from that - service fine, food ok. Won't be going back
