Seafood
At the Island Way Grill, we're all about fresh fish. Our own boats make daily trips to the middle grounds to bring back fresh tuna, mahi, snapper and other local varieties. No long-line fish here-just hook, rod, and reel. If it's any fresher, it is still in the gulf. Most of our cooking revolves around our oak and citrus fired open pit, which sears at an extremely high temperature and adds a delicious smokiness to everything grilled. You'll find an abundance of fresh herbs and only the best quality seasonings. Fresh vegetables are used throughout our menu, and all soups and sauces are hand-prepared. We are also proud to provide an excellent selection of the worlds best oysters flown in fresh for your enjoyment. In addition to our menu, our chefs prepare a varied assortment of daily specials that always add an element of interest to our every-day offerings.

    The restaurant was nice and the service was very good but the food was just okay. I was disappointed in the taste and quality. I had one of the featured items and it was disappointing. There was a good amount of food but that’s not the reason I go to a quality restaurant. Another person dining with me had a fresh catch. The seafood was fresh but again the taste and quality was just okay. I would say this restaurant is overrated.

    Restaurant a little hard to find but worth it. Had a very nice meal served by attentive staff in a nice setting. The early sitting options provide good value and quality. Valet parking at no charge was a nice feature and the guys provided great service with a smile! . Would recommend this property for any occasion and will be returning next time in Clearwater.

    I've always loved brunch at the Island Way Grille. The food is delicious, the diversity of food types outstanding and the service impeccable. The ambience and view top notch. I love the etched glass pieces by Duncan McClellan prominently displayed. The only negative I could find was that the dining areas were extremely cold which cooled off the piping hot entrees from the buffet and that sort of negated the quality of the food just a bit. Other than that I have no complaints. Definitely recommend reservations.

    We totally enjoyed our dining experience at Island Way Grill. We were pleasantly surprised that a special dinner menu was offered for diners arriving before 5:30PM. We all ended up ordering from the special menu and we were quite satisfied. We ate outside on the deck and the ambiance was fantastic. I would definitely recommend Island Way Grill.

    We went to the Sunday brunch this week. Valet parking was required. The acoustics were terrible and it was hard to have a conversation. We had reserved a table for 6 with water view, indicating it was a special occasion. We were placed by a bussing station with no view of the water. Service was extremely slow. Our bill exceeded $250. Upon leaving, we had to wait 30 minutes for the valet because they did not have enough attendants for the crowd. We live on the island and we have been regular customers, but we would never go to the Sunday brunch again. It's best to limit visits to evening or outdoor dining with small groups if you want to have a conversation, and it's best not to be in a hurry.

    The staff was great. The food was great. The music set a nice tone. My only irritation was with other guests who can't be polite and wait their turn, or those who find it customary to look at an interracial couple with disgusts. But it will not stop us from returning!!

    Expect to use valet service as parking is extremely limited and we arrived at 5pm. For the value their sister location Salt Rock offers a three course meal for same price (salad, main and desert) where as Island Way it is only the main course. I had filet mignon tips medium rare but they were cut so thin there is no way to match temperature request plus some were grainy and chewy so suspect something other than filet mignon was used. Great atmosphere on the water plus outside bar has a nice vibe usually packed with locals.

    Cocktails at the bar with Kryl were awesome. Pineapple martini was impressive. White sangria delicious. Austin was an excellent server. Enjoyable and engaging. Very professional and anticipated all our needs. Food was delicious. Tried Hogfish for first time and not disappointed. The Thai chili calamari was delicious. The outdoor area enjoyable at sunset.
