We had just flown in from San Diego, tired and hungry. Mark offered up some really good choices, like Frankie's Tuna Roll. That was outstanding. In between Mark's nice service, we were able to chat about Clearwater with him, really helped. He was equally comfortable with our granddaughter and what kids like. Looking forward to returning but would get a... More

There is something for every appetite in your family! Every type of fish and it's fresh! Good size portions so you don't go away hungary. I have always had great service, you can eat inside or out & there's a bar inside and out. They are always well staffed & the wait time is average. I make sure I go... More

For our last evening in Clearwater, we decided to have a nice dinner to cap off our long relaxing weekend. I asked the concierge for a recommendation on a good seafood restaurant to which he suggested that we try Island Way Grille. Even though it was Sunday, the concierge recommended that we set up a reservation, which he phoned in... More

We enjoyed Brunch on the patio Sunday 02/12. The place was absolutely packed but the food was excellent and replenished quickly. Our server, Adam, did a great job explaining the different sections of the buffet because this was our first visit. He was prompt and friendly. If you are planning to visit I would be sure to have a reservation.... More

We had brunch here a few weeks ago while in Florida and thoroughly enjoyed our brunch experience. The amount and variety of food offered is outstanding. The seafood available was amazing too. I would highly recommend this location.

We loved the atmosphere, the food and the cocktails. Being from the midwest, we love our beef and Island Way made a great steak! We also had the seafood and it was fresh! The calamari was delicious and so were the oysters. With such a large selection of wine it was hard to choose one.

We stopped in on a recent Sunday evening, for drinks and appetizers before a show. Our first issue was with the service. We arrived around 5:30 and it was mostly empty. We sat at the bar, where there was only one other couple seated. One server gave us menus and said he would be back and then disappeared without asking... More

This restaurant is super busy so you would think it was great, but it was not. They lost our reservation to start. Made us wait an hour. The food was acceptable but not worth the wait or the price. The view is nice. There are many other better restaurants in Clearwater including Bait House.

The restaurant is large and often demands a wait. Sunday evenings are a good time to slip in without a reservation or a long wait, if any at all. The inside restaurant is clean and classy without being pretentious. There are large windows facing the marina and you can see outside from lots of tables. The outside deck is spectacular... More
