Always get fresh great food at Ward's. You can shop around, but for freshness and taste Ward's is the best (although a little pricey). Ward's is always the best

When I visit my sister and family in Clearwater, I cook for them. I love getting a variety of seafood from Wards and grilling it up. I bought the salmon, swordfish, swai, grouper, shrimp, scallops, and mussels. Their prepared foods and salads are a big hit also. When to busy playing on the beach I can also stop in for... More

Wards is truly a classical fish market. There are always fresh catch of the day options as well as a wider selection of seafood products. These folks know their business and will always have one of their personal favourites to recommend. Grab your catch of the day any day and enjoy.

We stopped in Ward's today and found their typically fresh assortment of seafood. It's better than any of other seafood places. Every time I come here, I wonder why do I ever buy seafood at the local grocery. It's that much better!

Friendly staff, enormous selection! Had a long conversation with one of the employees and ended up buying 5 things I hadn't planned on (good salesman!). Also met the owner. Friendly guy as well. A little pricey on some things but you get what you pay for. The shrimp spread is excellent! It's not really a restaurant, more of a fresh... More

Spent the day in Clearwater and wanted to find fresh seafood. We moved to Orlando nearly 4 years ago an are sorely disappointed in the amount of fresh seafood we've found. Wards might not look like much from the outside; but the minute we walked inside we found a great assortment of clams, mussels, shrimp, fresh fish, amazing stone crab... More

Found Wards Seafood on October 22 after going to Frenchy's in Clearwater for their "famous" stone crab festival. We wanted to take our crab to go....because we wanted to get back to Tampa to watch the Michigan game. Frenchy's said we had to eat the crab there so we found Wards and so happy we did. Not only was their... More
