Great location, very nice atmosphere and attentive service. A wonderful selection of choices from the menu. The seafood was fresh and the sushi was fresh as well. The steak selection was impressive and looked delicious. This was one of our favorite choices while in the Clearwater area. Will visit again.

This place has so much potential. It's a great location. The decor is very hip and fresh. However, the people are just not up to their potential. The hostesses just seem barely interested in greeting you. Two of the bartenders were grumpy but one was nice. The cocktails were great so that was a big plus. The menu looks really... More

We have literally driven past this beautiful restaurant for years without stopping to eat. We decided on this trip that it was time. We had a reservation for 7:30pm and arrived at 7, so we checked in and went to the bar for a drink. Within 5 minutes, it was clear that the bar was the quietest part of the... More

The brunch was fantastic. The selection of food and drinks was amazing. You get one glass of champagne or a mimosa included. They also have a bloody mary bar. Lots of seafood, an omelet station, breads, salads, waffles, desserts. Pricey but worth trying.

Our meal here was fantastic. My wife got the grouper Pacific Rim style. The fish arrived perfectly cooked. I ordered Wahoo off the specials menu. It was served with a crab topping that made this dish something I would order over and over. My favorite part of the meal was the side of crab fried rice my wife and I... More

The Island Way Grill is one of the top two restaurants that the primary owner is involved in. Beautiful views from outside tables. The menu provides an excellent variety with seafood and steaks being great choices. It is a busy place so visitors should plan for a relaxing time while waiting for service from the kitchen. Prices are on the... More

The food was incredible, lots of seafood, fresh ingredients, omelette station, none of which disappointed. However the staff was the highlight. Bartenders Dana and Nicole went out of their way for us, making our dining experience better than imagined. First time here, will return again!
