We had a server named Rob. Coming from Pdx and going to restaurants that are know for having the best in the biz have nothing on our server Rob. He was AMAZING. In fact I assumed he was the manager. When I asked he said...no, but his manager was really young and probably the best he had ever worked for! That is something to be said. The food was great and the Sea lions were gone so sitting on the deck was great. Dogs can sit on the deck. Some of the seafood pastas, fresh fish and sandwich’s are legit. We loved everything but it’s worth it to ask for Rob and take his recommendations!More

Similar to many other places - empty dining areas, and yet a 15 minute wait to be texted. When we arrived after being notified, we found nothing on the menu to keep us there. Our potential server stopped us as we were leaving...asked what's up...and when we told him there were no deep fried oysters on the menu, he directed us down the street to Gino's - a very kind and generous offer....right on too!More

The food was OK but the entire dining experience was overshadowed by the booming “music” that blasted throughout the restaurant. When we ordered I asked our server to please turn down the base volume that was so bad that it rattled the windows and made...it hard to hear anything but the thumping pulse of the non-description music. I asked again to turn it down when our food arrived and he said they had turned it down. Clearly the staff didn’t care about the dining experience of their customers. If this was a dive bar the low rider music would be appropriate, but for a $100+ lunch it was not what I expect. I would not recommend this place, we found a much better place for dinner down the street with appropriate music and professional staff that cared about the customer experience. Keep walking.More

4.5 stars. Excellent service and out of the 5 of us, 3 rated their food as a 5 , 1 a 4, and 1 rated it a 3. The portion size of the Cilantro Miso Vegetables and S’mores in a cup was way too small...given the price but all else was great!More

The food was awesome, the view was wonderful of the sea lions and the service was excellent. We had the Crab Garlic pasta and the crab macaroni and cheese were wonderful. Good listing of drinks and beer.

Staff from start to finish was really friendly, but professional. Bartender offered a fun and interesting array of specialty cocktails and allowed us to try some wines that we were unfamiliar with. Three of us shared the Wild Burger (New Zealand Elk, wild boar, bison...& Wagyu Beef. It was mouthwatering. We also shared the Crab Melt, with Manchego, shallots, tarragon on a Brioche Bread - I wish we had more because it was so dreamy, but it was the perfect amount of food for 3 ladies.More

A restaurant with a wonderful location. Customers have the option of eating inside or outside. We chose to eat outside on the patio which gave us front row seating viewing the sea lions napping on the water barges. This was very entertaining for the children...which gave us adults time to enjoy our drinks, appetizers and time to enjoy the wonderful food served. Service was spectacular and the food was AMAZING!More

We ate at this lovely restaurant expecting the food to match the view. The hostess was pretty but met us with that 'I'm busy' look rather than a come-on-in smile. The waitperson who seated us was more welcoming and helpful. We ordered cocktails which arrived...quickly and well mixed. We ordered our food, pasta dishes. They came poorly plated, almost stark looking. The flavors were ordinary. I guess the venue is so pretty we hoped the food would match. And the prices? Way high for ordinary food. Too bad. I think Clearwater could be very special. It isn't now.More
