    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.

    The lobster mac & cheese is worth a special trip from Chicago to Clearwater. Calamarie app was very tasty and the Martini's were delicious. Only complaint is the minimal salsa that came with the Salmon and plain white rice - would have liked more.

    Food and service was impeccable!! My husband and I ordered the sea diver scallops and black Grouper...OUTSTANDING!!! Definitely try the calamari for an appetizer and be sure to save room for blackberry cheesecake! These were all menu recommendations from our server Travis who was by far the best waiter I've ever come across. Definitely made our dining experience that much more relaxed, comfortable and special. Can't wait to come back again!!

    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 :)

    The view was excellent! The wind did not cooperate so we had to eat inside but with large windows we could still take in scenery. The food was just as good as the view. Everything we ate tasted great and was prepared perfectly. Priced than we normally eat but was in our range of special occasion. Well worth the price.

    my partner and i chose this restaurant hoping to have a lovely meal by the beach as it was our last night in Clearwater, had read good reviews so decided to make a reservation. upon arriving and checking in, we waited for nearly 10 minutes apparently for a table to be clear, the table we eventually we given was free and ready the whole time we had been waiting. waited nearly 15 minutes for drinks order to be taken, we just seemed to be waiting for the whole meal, food was very nice but the service was poor. maybe could have forgiven the waiting if it was busy, but it clearly wasn't busy and we just seemed to be forgotten the whole time, i would recommend the food but not the service, so overall wouldn't recommend :(

    The staff was spectacular. Very friendly, courteous and full of smiles. With that said, the ambience was significantly more casual than I gathered from pictures and the food, while beautifully plated, lacked the punch I'd expect from the prices on the menu. My filet mignon tasted more like a regular steak with an odd smoked flavor I wasn't expecting and nothing else had a great deal of flavor. Decent view from the balcony, not so much from inside where it's comfortable. Overall, not a bad experience at all but likely won't return.

    Looked forward to the Mother's Day Brunch for weeks. But sad to say the seafood had sat out for hours to the point that the Oysters had dried out so bad that their was no liquid left and they were dried to the shell. I had visited Shor 4 years and the food was great this time the menu had changed and was no better than bar food with a up scale name.

    Outdoor dining on the patio is the best. Sunset views are gorgeous. Traffic below can be a little obnoxious but mostly very pleasant. Do not recommend indoor dining..extremely loud due to tile/marble floors throughout. Our server was excellent, food was slightly above par. Menu a little limited. Rather pricey overall. Still would recommend if only for the view and beautiful patio.

    We went to Shor for Easter brunch. We were greeted and served right away. Every staff member we met was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We had the option of eating inside or out and chose to eat on the patio. The view was spectacular, and the weather was gorgeous. As far as the buffet goes, there was a selection large enough to meet anyone's interest and the food was top notch. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will visit again.

Additionally some of the items lacked flavor/seasoning. Our server was very polite and personable. Overall we were dissapointed and most likely will not return.

    Service was very good. Calamari appetizer was delicious. I had cioppino, which was good& fresh, but would try something else if I went back. We had ahi tuna, which was a special that night. It was very good. I would recommend it again. It is a little more expensive than just your average night out, so maybe save it for a special occasion, but it is worth it.
