We walked by around 8:30 pm and got lucky on a table for 3 in the outdoor seating area. It was so private with the greenery and lighting that we felt transported to another world. Great seafood and some of the best service we have experienced.

We had the BEST meal! Prime rib, lobster, salad with Roquefort dressing, and Creme Brûlée. The pre-dinner breads and relish tray were a great addition! We will be back!

My husband and I enjoyed this restaurant during our first visit to the Clearwater Beach area. The food was plentiful and fantastic to eat. The wine list was extensive with something for everyone. The piano player was very, very good and provided a special ambiance to the dining experience. The service was great!! We arrived rather late on a Saturday... More

Fantastic food. This is an upscale dining experience and food was plentiful. Unfortunately we wasted a lot as we visited on night before we were leaving town and could not take leftovers with us. Portions were huge and could have shared. This place is not cheap and we de decided next year it will be a nice date night without... More

We had a wonderful dining experience here the in mid-March. Skilled and entertaining bar staff with the added bonus of the bar guests treating us like old friends. The restaurant has an "old Florida" steakhouse feel--but updated enough so as not to feel worn. The food was not "art on a plate", but the portions were generous and the food... More

Took my mom here with the family (4). We enjoyed it. A little pricey but you are on the beach and it's a higher end restaurant. Service was excellent and they have nice starters including some freebies that are interesting. It's a nice Holiday dinner place.

Picture a classy 1950's restaurant out of the movie The Graduate and you get the idea. We sat at the bar, 50s jazz playing and ordered a Singapore sling and mai tail, and clams casino (which are delicious). All was good if pricey. Strange that their "fresh" oysters are from Boston.

Quite a retro spot with a live piano, wood paneled walls and old acoustic ceiling tiles. But the food was first rate, with ingredients much better than one would expect anywhere in a middle brow beach tourist town. A menu of old standards very well prepared and served. If you get tired of beach bars in this part of Florida,... More

The food was good as was the service. Lots of food. If you order the chicken it easily enough for two people. But it was good. I didn't think the menu had a great selection. But it was a nice place.

Thank easygoin303
