Top Eats On Clearwater Beach

Visiting Clearwater Beach and dont know where to eat? The area boasts tons of great restaurants; all catering to a variety of tastes and price ranges. Here are just a few of my favorites for just about every occasion.

Maggie Maes Sunrise Cafe
Regarded as one of the best breakfast spots on Clearwater Beach, Maggies also specializes in serving a meal all its own Blunch, which Maggie refers to as the meal for those who have too much of a hangover to get out of bed in time for breakfast. The atmosphere is casual and playful, and the eats are comfort food delicious. My personal favorite is the Florida Pecan Waffle, topped with Maggies own special blend
Grand Marnier & Malibu Rum Syrup. Hillbilly Taters are excellent too!

Island Way Grill
While Maggie Maes is on the casual side, Island Way Grill is upscale, and the perfect fine dining dinner spot. But folks looking to vacation on a budget shouldnt shy away from one of Clearwater Beachs best upscale restaurants they offer Early Bird Specials with a soup/salad, entre, and dessert for only $10! Personally, Im a big fan of their sushi bar, but unlike other sushi restaurants, those I dined with could enjoy something else from the menu without any problems. Best place to get local, fresh-caught fish.

Frenchys Caf
This is the place to go to for lunch and a nice big, fat, juicy grouper sandwich. I recommend having it served Cajun style. Frenchys has been a fixture on Clearwater Beach for ages, and its a great place to cool off after soaking up the sun all day. Plus theres always something special about having homemade, crispy chips with my burger. So delicious and the service is great! A short distance from several of the Clearwater Beach Hotels.

Cesares on the Beach
Regarded as the go-to place for Italian food, Cesare offers some of the best Italian food you may have ever tasted. In fact, the owner, Cesare Tini once served Frank Sinatra. In Sinatras honor, Tini created the Sinatra which has become one of the restaurants most popular items – veal scallopine rolled around scallops and shrimp in a light lemon sauce. Personally, I recommend both the Eggplant Rollatini and Spaghetti Carbonara, featured homemade pasta. Finish the meal off with a nice slice of Tiramisu. And make sure to say hello to Mr. Tini at the door he always stands at the door to greet his customers, an extra special touch that keeps patrons coming back for seconds, thirds, and even fourths on their vacations. Also a short distance from several Clearwater Beach Condos. Not staying in Clearwater Beach? Its worth the drive from your St. Pete Beach or Treasure Island hotel.
