Place for lunch between johns pass and Clearwater

We're coming to johns pass for a boat trip in April I think it'll be 11-1. We then plan to head up to Clearwater for sunset. Does anyone have any recommendations for lunch on the way. Either at johns pass or as we're driving up? We came about 8 years ago and ate at a lovely restaurant on the canal but can't remember the name so any help with anywhere would be gratefully received.

The Conch Republic in N. Redington. It's not on a canal but a very popular restaurant. They have a website.

I always enjoy having lunch at Guppy's on the Beach, Indian Rocks. It's across the street from the beach with a great outside eating area.

What was the restaurant like? Upscale, seafood? Salt Rock is located on the inner coastal on the drive up from John's Pass.

Just quite regular food nothing fancy but I remember it being nice with a lovely setting. Guess I just want some ideas of where does good food as otherwise I'll panic and go to the first place that looks busy!!

There are many restaurants at John's pass, just south of that and Salt Rock or the smaller, family run Aqua would be good options. Aqua has many specials but Salt Rock has the views-from inside or out. I agree that Clearwater will be crowded, unsure of price options but if you're craving seafood or local fare, all of the other posters have provided nice options to you. Enjoy your boat and lunch trips.

Wahoos. The name like the tacos place, but definitely not the same food. Grouper was the best we have had in the area. Fresh off the boat. It is in Redington shores.

The Pub is on intercoastal. It's a nice setting. Sit outside on deck. Nothing really stands out on menu but decent food with a nice view. Jimmy Guana's in the Holiday Inn Indian Rocks beach is on the intercoastal and has outside seating on deck. Backwaters on Sand Key also has outside seating on deck.
