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!

The waiter was arrogant. He served me warm beer, slow to deliver. They didn't have my first choice available. The tenderloin sandwich was terrible, very small meat portion, huge bun and lots of fries. Almost no nutritional value. When he brought the check, he pre-tipped himself. I didn't hesitate to decrease the tip.
The restaurant live entertainment, a singer who played guitar. The only good part of the night.

We were on a trip to celebrate our 50th anniversary, and this was our nice night out. We indicated “anniversary” on Open Table, but there was not even a “congratulations.” Our server Tim seemed very uninterested in us, and was gone for long stretches. Twice we had to get another server to find him. The server that helped out was training another server, and she was very sweet and about saved the day. There is an extensive menu. Happy hour prices are good if your server comes by in a timely manner. The pasta and fish were excellent, but the very disappointing service made us leave unhappy on a celebratory occasion, despite excellent food. There was fun steel drum music that was a plus. This is a fine restaurant that needs to coach some staffers.

Street noises a little aggravating. But nothing you can do about that. My wife loved her food. Mine was mediocre. The service was great. Hopefully you’ll be able to get a better bus staff at some point. I understand times are a little rough but the place is kind of dirty.
