Clearwater's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
There are few beaches in the world that match the white sands of Florida's Gulf coast, and even fewer places that match the quality and diversity of the seafood from the Gulf of Mexico. When these two elements come together in Clearwater, added to the bustling nightlife and the shopping of nearby Tampa, it can create a fantastic mix of fun, sun, and food. Some of the best beachside oyster and crab shacks line the waterfront while more sophisticated fare is just a few blocks in from the luxurious beach resorts. Rum and tequila are always available in an ever-evolving list of concoctions. You can even find boats where you catch and cook your own fish. You can find bistros, steakhouses, and other great choices when you want something a little different, but you cannot miss out on the bounty of the Gulf.
