It’s a nice place to get a bite to eat right on the main drag in Clearwater Beach. The food looks good and for the most part is tasty. Unfortunately, all of our pizzas were soggy(wet and liquid) in the middle. The pricing is high because of the location I’m sure. The service was good.

About the restaurant
Seaweed Steaks, Seafood & Sushi is a contemporary steak and seafood experience.
Dishes are prepared in three separate areas; the main kitchen, the sushi bar and the raw bar. Rather than offering individual starters and main courses, Seaweed serves dishes that are designed to be shared at the table or enjoyed individually, and are brought to the table continuously throughout the experience.

The foos on the happy hour menu was fantastic. We are outside, because the inside had a very bad strong smell of mother balls. It was so strong, we had to eat outside. I have been there twice before and never noticed that small before. SO I hope it was a temporary thing.
