Really disappointed in our meal at Clear Sky. We’ve been quite a few times over the years & it can be a bit hit & miss but this was really not good. We ordered the blackened grouper dinner and the grilled grouper dinner. I ended up sending mine back as it was undercooked & very tough. My husband kept his but indicated it had no flavor & tasted like it had been frozen. I had mine replaced with grilled salmon which tasted bad. Our server was pleasant & the manager kept apologizing but there’s not much that can be done. It was just a really bad experience & we won’t be back again anytime soon.

This restaurant had a great varied menu during this virus issue. People were a little too close to each other but the food was excellent and service good.

I would have given a higher grade for ambience since this is billed as a "beachfront restaurant" But no water views in the main dining room

Some things on the menu were very good. The lobster Mac n cheese was very good. The shrimp scampi was very good. The Grouper came out over cooked twice. The restaurant made it right and the staff was friendly. I would give it another try, but I would not order the Grouper.

We first ate breakfast at Clear Sky Beachside Cafe and liked it so much we decided to have dinner there. Both meals were excellent. We sat outside both times and were happy with the ambiance and the service. The food was very good. We thought it was a good value for the location. They have a varied menu with plenty of good choices for both breakfast and dinner. I'm sure lunch would be great but we didn't have a chance.

Food was very good. We did fajitas. I never expected but waitress rec. very good ! So many choices. Very prompt. Sat close to singer a little loud but we could still talk. Good value. Many types of sitting make this restaurant a great find. Also mostly walkable On vacation from Spring Hill suites rode to restaurant but walked home 15 min

Open door needs to have it where we could have booked earlier. The manager accommodated us but we wanted brunch & nothing was available on open door until after the restaurants brunch hours. Couldn’t book except for 1 day in advance. Communicate better with restaurant & let patrons book earlier.

Valentines night, first visit, mediocre food, over price drinks, marginally acceptable service, nice ambiance but loud. That was indoors. Outdoors was not an option for me even though they tried to seat me there.
Said it was on the water and it’s not.
Doubt I’d go back. Typical tourist trap, nothing special not a value in my world

When one is going to eat at the restraunts along Clearwater Beach they must realize to allow extra time for parking. We were ten minuets early but spent 15 minuets to find a parking space and getting to the place. I walk with a cane and should have ask about handicap parking or valet. The place was lively and we were seated right a way and the food was good and all enjoyed their meals and the desert we chose to split was enjoyable.

The old fashioned and the Bloody Mary were really good!~ the rockefeller oysters were delicious. We also got the lobster mac & cheese and the jambalaya... the Mac n cheese was better. Next time, I want to come and try their brunch.

We had a great night here. The local singer was lovely to listen to. Our son loved dancing along. The food was nice and the server was very kind and helpful. We were a bit frustrated when the front door hostess sat us at our table. She said she would bring a high chair for our toddler and she did not come back. We asked again, and she assured us she would be right back. After 5 mins we checked back and she was seating other tables. I didn’t understand why a high chair was so hard - we would have carried it over (but they weren’t visibly available). Finally our waitress offered to get it. Obviously we get that they were busier - but if we are willing to help, take us up on it. Don’t make us just stand at our table!

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.
