A friend told us a few weeks ago about this place. Then as a birthday gift, I received a gift certificate for the Sunday Brunch. OMG, what a spread. Personal omelets, eggs, etc., prepared for you, your way. Fresh oysters, shrimp, sushi, salads, breads, cheeses and desserts. Priced reasonably with a complimentary Mimosa. Highly recommend this venue for Sunday Brunch.... More

Island Way really deserves the name Top of the Top... My wife and I really love this place and the choice of indoor or outdoor seating really is nice.

After eating seafood all week, we asked for a recommendation for a steak house. This was an excellent choice, but it also has an awesome selection of seafood. Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and excellent service. Offers indoor and outdoor seating. We went on a week night, and it was very busy anyway. We could see why based on the quality... More

Everything was fantastic from the beginning to the end. We sat outside by the water. The food was delicious. I recommend the oysters, crab bisque and the shrimp linguine. My husband loved the 2012 Hess wine. This service was impeccable. A couple of people pulled up in their boats at the public restaurant docks..... cool. Eat here if you want... More

We came in with two small children, staff were very accommodating. The restaurant seemed like it was about 2/3 full but later I discovered there was a very large section in the back that was closed, so it was probably more like 1/3 full. Outside looks gorgeous, but wasn't where we wanted to sit with two tired and hungry toddlers.... More

Beautiful place with outdoor patio facing the bay. Nice for summer sunset. Sushi is fresh. Service is always fast and courteous. Great drink options. Valet parking. Elegant casual atmosphere.

We sat outside and as the sun went down the staff lit all the heaters making it a perfect spot for dinner. The main venue is very big and has a bar area too but it was too cold inside with the A/C on full. Lovely menu (recommend the coconut shrimp) and a good wine list. Slightly higher priced than...

My wife and I had a super brunch at a reasonable price. We got a window table facing the small inlet and dock it's located on. Typical offerings -- with fresh raw oysters galore. One free glass of champagne each. I ate too much!

This was our 2nd visit and though the ambience is ok the first time the food and service was ok... this time not good at all. We sat outside at a wobbley table... the waitress was not really attentive to us. My wife ordered fish (gluten free) which was uninteresting... I ordered a tomahawk rib steak with fries... the potatoes... More

Friday night with family in Clearwater. We were suggested to go to this hotel by our front desk. The place is modern and has a wonderful patio facing the beach. Beach views from the dining room too. Our server, Linda, was very helpful at all times but service was extremely slow, the table wasn't cleaned, and unfortunately food was not... More
