Our server went above and beyond to ensure that my friend with a dairy allergy was able to share the starters with the rest of the group, separating the non-dairy items onto a different plate and providing flatbread for her (instead of the pita, which was buttered). Extremely impressed. Food was great and super reasonable.

The food is usually very good, as we regulars. The only complaint would be that the servers often times make you feel rushed, as I have received my entree before I finished my salad.

We had a very enthusiastic server who took good care of us. Food and drinks were good with one exception. My scallops with spaghetti squash and candies bacon was very sweet throughout the squash, not just on the bacon. The first few bites were good, then it was overwhelming. All in all it was fun and we will continue to come back.

Our Christmas dinner was excellent in every way. The restaurant is beautiful and we had a window table right with a great view of the December sunset. I was pleased that I could specialize my entree to my dietary needs, and the food was incredible. I wish we lived close by, but make sure to visit on our next trip to Clearwater Beach.

Excellent food. Terrific service. Loud and vibrant, yet with class. Kitchen closes earlier than bar. Late night flat breads after kitchen closes. Good date night or friends night or even out alone night. Also great breakfast (I hear)

3 breakfasts, one dinner, all amazing.

Get their eggs, French toasts and quiches for breakfast/brunch. Get their pizzas and flatbreads for dinner.

You’ll love it all.

We chose to sit outside. They had a musician who was talented but it was so loud that we found it difficult to have a conversation.
I feel like it’s definitely a touristy kind of place. Higher prices with decent food. Our server was great!

Great food. Great service. Great prices!
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
I ordered the lobster ravioli and it was phenomenal.

My hairdresser in Indianapolis encouraged me to stop by while I was staying in Clearwater FL because they have the BEST French toast - she was right!!

Lucky me, I stayed at a hotel across the street from the restaurant and I took advantage of trying several dishes over the four days I was in Clearwater.

Excellent restaurant with great outdoor dining and live music at night. Food was excellent with menu choices to suit anyone. Service was exceptional. Breakfast is fantastic with the best French Toast I’ve ever had. A must do place to try while in Clearwater.

Appetizers and dinner special (Swordfish) were outstanding. The NY Strip steak was a big disappointment.
We have eaten at Clear Sky many times and the steak was the first bad meal we have had.

Have been to this location many times. Food quality was fair. My $43 Chilean Sea Bass was not cooked and was tough as grizzle. My friends Chicken was very overcooked. With a beer and a house glass of wine, $94 for a lousy dinner marks this down as a place to maybe have an appetizer and move on.

Great location close to the beach, Clear Sky Cafe has a lively atmosphere. You can sit outside, or at the bar (watching the bartenders keep up with the ordered concoctions was fascinating). The grouper sandwich I had was so fresh I thought it might jump out of the bun! Delicious! My wife had the flatbread which she enjoyed. Hopped it off with a slice of key lime pie was the perfect ending to an enjoyable dinner.
