Loved the menu and the food was great. The service was very slow. I think we were our servers only table on the sidewalk and he forgot us...it also was very evident that he forgot to put in part of our order so it was delayed coming out of the kitchen.

Food was too greasy, the food did not taste good, they got the order wrong. Took too long to serve the food. However, the server was so sweet. The noise level was very loud and difficult to have a conversation. It was very expensive. It was extremely cold inside the restaurant. We had to go back to get a sweater and a hat to be able to finish eating. I do not recommend even though I had been there before. This has been the worse time.

On our honeymoon, my husband and I had a list of restaurants to visit however we had an open night and came across Clear Sky Cafe! The food was incredible! Every single thing we tried was amazing! But those truffle fries!!!!! Delicious!!! We will be coming back to Clearwater Beach often and Clear Sky Cafe will be our first choice for any meal!

Amy, our server, made several recommendations. The Surf & Turf was very tasty and tender. The Coconut Crusted Hogfish was very good as well as the Key Lime Pie. Thanks Amy! Our first time there and we were very happy we selected Clear Sky Beachside Cafe! Thank you.

When we visited Clearwater beach we stayed in a hotel very close to this restaurant so it was the first one we tried. We thought it would be “just” a beach restaurant where we would have burgers and fries but it was way better.
We tried other restaurants but kept coming back to this one for several reasons:
It has a great menu, with a lot of different options.
The food is great; we tried several different things in 4 days and never had a bad meal.
The service is fast and the waiters are very nice.

We normally LOVE Clearsky and visit regularly when we travel from Canada, but we were very alarmed that the waitstaff were not wearing masks during such a health crisis. We know that they are not mandated, but given their close proximity to clients, it should be a requirement. Unfortunately, we do not feel comfortable returning until we feel more safe.

We dined at noon on a weekday. Various staff told us over and over that they were “transitioning” from breakfast to lunch so there was delay in being seated for our reservation, delay for waitress to even visit our table. No big deal at first, but after an hour of delays with every aspect of our lunch it was annoying - especially with a 3 year old in tow. The waitress would leave for over 15 minutes at a time, said she would refill water but we had to ask twice. She also kept saying she would return to take our order or be “right back” and never did. No silverware on the table, we had to get it ourselves. The bar was “out of” several cocktails on the menu. I thought maybe it was poor treatment because I brought my teenage brother and his friends, and my child, but we ordered high-end food so it’s not like it was a small bill and everyone was well behaved. Also it was not exceptionally crowded, and it seemed like there was ample staff, so I am not sure why it took so long to put our food order in. All in all, terrible experience with terrible service. Food was decent. It should not take over an hour to “transition” a kitchen in a restaurant that is organized and well run, much less with employees constantly using that as an excuse for their subpar service.

This is the secret place to go for a nice meal while in Clearwater. The entire staff is friendly and generous in spirit! We had the Pretzels, Chicken Milanese, and Lobster Ravioli and all were scrumptious and well prepared. Everything was flavorful and their portions are well sized. Our server, Rachael, was delightful. She was wonderfully kind and so upbeat and attentive while the restaurant managed the July 4th crowd. I highly recommend this place when you need a nice cooked meal!
