  • Chowder was great

    Dined on 11/15/2014
    I read other reviews before going. So perhaps I was looking to validate the comments. Just to be fair. I love this hotel and the location. We arrived too late to see the sunset. 630 pm. There are plenty of tables throughout the night, even on a Saturday night. This restaurant is incorporated into the lobby of the Hyatt. I took a cab there so I didn't experience there parking situation. The host Sat us next to the window but I didn't like that there was a door leading outside next to us. And later a large table of women, out on the town, where little too loud for our romantic expectations at dinner. The chowder was good with plenty of fish chunks and seafood and a coconut base broth, Caesar salad was a typical one. My wife liked her surf and turf lamb and scallops. I was not too keen on the carrot/ginger purée on my mahi-mahi. I just don't like sweet tasting fish dishes The kid who served us was very attentive. But the kitchen let him down in between the entrée and dessert. Bread pudding should not take 40 minutes to come out of the oven. So the comments I am making are consistent with others. The restaurant is rather expensive, the service is inconsistent with varying levels of attentiveness and being ignored. The location is odd but I knew that going into it. For $65 per person, SHOR could have delivered more. I won't eat dinner there again. Lunch or breakfast, and only if i am in the area. I won't drive to Clearwater just for this restaurant.

    We dined here for my birthday and even though evening started off poorly it turned out to be one of the best dining experiences ever. There was a screaming child in the inside dining area that just was out of control which was no fault of the restaurants but once they moved us to an outside table all went well. I would dine there again.

    First off, what a great location: right on the beach and a perfect spot to watch the sun set. The menu has some great looking dishes and the ones we had (mahi mahi and snapper) were nice. Unfortunately what let this restaurant down in a big way was the service. The wine, which we hoped to enjoy over the course of the meal, arrived ten minutes after the appetisers, after we chased it several times. When it did arrive the server briefly apologised; "sorry, I didn't forget about you, I had some other things to do." Great to know, buddy. After the appetisers were cleared away and the wine was poured we were finally offered some bread! Bizarre. Unfortunately, despite the great location, I won't be going back.

    The food is absolutely delicious, fresh, and of high quality. The ocean view is spectacular and makes for a wonderful meal ambiance. All of this will cost you a little more than you might want to spend but you do get value for the price you pay. The portions are generous and you leave feeling very satisfied. In this case, you really do get what you paid for.

    This was our first visit. The sunset on the beach was great. The food was well prepared with a great presentation and delicious. The wine list was good and the prices were not hurtful for a hotel/restaurant. However, while our server was very attentive; the food courses were rushed out to us as if it was a quick lunch instead of a relaxing dinner. I sent the entrees back since we had just gotten our appetizer which had been delivered three minutes after the bread was put on the table. Whoa! The kitchen or the server needs to better control the food flow to the tables. I was surprised that the take home boxes and the bill were not delivered with the entrees. There was not a line waiting for tables. Again, the quality was great.

    I enjoyed lunch very much. The staff was happy to let me choose where to sit and to attend to me right away. Although the menu was long on sandwiches, the angus burger I had was very good, and the view of the beach and Gulf was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the decaf cappucino, with its strong coffee flavor. Validated parking was a fine extra.

    I am still curious on why my credit card is pending for more than what I signed for. I was eating seafood so I wanted a white bottle of wine. When the botte came out and he poured me the sample I tasted it and immediately remembered it. I had bought the same bottle at publix buy one get one free for 10 dollars before. I didn't even drink one of the bottles because didn't care for them. Very disappointed in the wine selections available. I had the lobster ravioli for dinner. The ravioli was ok but the sauce was horrible though. The wife had the salmon. She enjoyed the salmon but the vegetables were very oily. Horribly sautéed. Then came desert. The selection just wasn't very appetizing for our taste.

    First visit. Three went for dinner. Restaurand 50% or less full. Wanted to seat us just inside entrance near lobby. Said no. Moved to inner part of restaurant. Waiter very helpful with menu, et al. Felt rushed but said " we're in no hurry" he backed off. Ordered appetizers. Complimentary bread looked great but had poor taste and too soft.. Took too much time. Waiter wanted to take orders, said please wait. Two ordered fish, Mahi and Tuna. Other ordered soup and salad.. Presentation was nice but food was cold. Should serve on warm plates. $38.00 for a bottle of Canvas Pinot Grig. was way too much!! Live in the area. Won't go there again or recommend to anyone.

    After trawling through restaurants reviews in Clearwater from home in England, I chose Shor because the interior decor looked classy and the menu appealing. It did not disappoint. Having arrived in Clearwater and seen the popularity of the beachy dining spots, Shor was a pleasant change to fine dining whilst maintaining a casual air. It is a stunning restaurant and we had a really nice birthday dinner for my husband. The service was attentive and friendly, the food well presented and cooked to perfection, the views of the beach beautiful and the interior decor was very very nice. We will be heading back again before we leave. Definitely the best dining spot in Clearwater.

    We had a very memorable anniversary! We had a high-top table at the window, with a gorgeous view of the ocean and we got to watch the sunset, it was perfect! Our server (Nate) was quick, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The food was absolutely delicious; appetizers, entrees and dessert. The kitchen where the chefs cook is completely open and you can watch everything that is going on, very interesting. It was our anniversary and our server, the head chef and the manager all wished us a happy anniversary. The hospitality at this restaurant is top notch! I can't wait to go back :)
