“Great location with ample outdoor seating on the water.”
Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

If you have just visited Winter the dolphin at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, walk across the parking lot and park yourself at a table on the water at this restaurant. Nice outdoor seating area and a beautiful interior are what sells this place. Service and food are hit and miss. This last visit of four was probably the best as far as service goes, so hopefully that is a sign of progress.

“Food great, service fair”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Food was great but we felt like we were rushed because we came in for the early special. The included desert was dropped at the table quickly with the bill with no offer of coffee or tea. We had to ask for it when we could finally catch our server. We were at their sister restaurant a few nights before & boy do they know how to up sell their early birds with no problem, and that is not a negative by any means. We will not be back to Island Way Grill but will go back to our favorite Salt Rock Grill for the full experience.

“One of a kind place...”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

This restaurant is incredibly versatile. You can dine inside...a wonderful setting with subdued but adequate lighting. Eat at the sushi and raw bar or dine outside on a large deck overlooking the water. Most of their dishes have an asian flair but most people should be able to find something to eat here. They have complimentary valet parking and its worth eating here just to see it. The food is well prepared, I had a top sirloin steak and spiny lobster. Steak was cooked to order and the lobster was not overcooked. It is a little pricey but worth every penny. We had eaten there before and were not disappointed upon our return.

“stone crabs”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

best stone crab claws in Tampa area-fresh, large, cold. Interesting customer group-some conference types, a number of casually dressed people who did not look like the typical customer for this type of restaurant.

“Ok, Not Great”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The ambiance is very nice. I enjoyed sitting outside very much.
The food on the other hand was terrible. But I would recommend going to this place for the Atmosphere just not the food.
