“yummy grouper and awesome dessert”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

We went to Britt's first for dinner on a Friday night and were immediately seated inside (outside had a wait time). Had the Grouper sandwich with side of arugula salad and it was fantastic. My son had the Grouper entree which was equally wonderful. The beer selection was incredible and huge. I tried a local beer based on recommendation by our waiter which was quite good. The Key Lime Pie was to Die for! Our waiter (and I am sorry I forgot his name but he was from Missouri), was very attentive and helpful with our food selection (countless other employees checked on us throughout our dinner as well). We enjoyed it so much, we came back for breakfast on Saturday morning and were very happy with the delicious and healthy offerings like the whole wheat waffle with fresh berries and egg. Prices were very reasonable, especially for a beach area. We wish we had one of these in CA.

“Britt's Beachside Cafe”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Nice beachside cafe with available inside or outside dining. The menu had plenty of choices for every taste. The staff was very couterous and friendly and the inside of the cafe was really amazing. The tables were marble with plenty of seating.

“looks aren't everything”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

We used to use britts before the refurb and yes it looks great, the service was good and the food ok (although cheesecake was fab) but its lost its atmosphere which is a shame, but we would still come back just not as a first choice.

“Britts??? Dont think we will go back!!”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

We ventured to the redone Britts for lunch....Stood at the door for about 5 minutes nobody came so we just sat at the bar. It was hot and humid inside and no doors were opened..We noticed they had like five or six ductless airconditioners in the restaurant. Only two of them were running. I have never seen them used in a restaurant almost like Air Conditioning was a afterthought??? Wierd!! We ordered a appetizer hummus and deep fried things and a salad. It was good. Then our burgers came they looked good but menu said chips. I was thinking potato chips but they were Nacho chips with some kind of red seasoning shaken on them. Never had that either with nothing to dip them in. The burgers were good, Chips we did not eat. Also parking is really messed up. They have a parking garage and as long as you shop in Surf Style or eat at Britts you can get ur ticket validated. Took it to a cashier at surfstyle along with our reciept from britts he looked at it and said I gave you a Hour?? Wierd. Then we had to take the ticket to the automated machine put it in and then it spit it out?! Not really understanding what the ticket said took it back to the cashier he said you have 10 min to get to ur car and put the ticket in the machine otherwise you pay. I dont think we would go back. There are better places to go to on Clearwater beach. It was just wierd!!!

“Would not go back.”
Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

We travel to Clearwater annually for our Mother/daughter vacation. We are always anxious to try new restaurants. Since Britt's is so close to the Hyatt where we always stay, we thought we would give it a try. The service was very slow and the food wasn't very good. I ordered the ribeye steak and the whole meal was just one pile of food. Steak and beans stacked on top of undercooked potatoes. Yuck! Would not go back, even for breakfast.
