Everything was excellent. Crab cake was great. Had the grouper sandwich and the basket. It’s great. Beer was cheap too. Make sure to stop if you’re in Clearwater.

My husband and I ate an early dinner here on a Monday night. We were seated promptly and treated well. TIP: get the She-Crab soup! TIP: Get the classic fried grouper sandwich with chips! This is what they are known for.

Monday's and Tuesday's at Saltwater Cafe on Mandalay Ave (N. beach). AYCE snow crab and beer battered flounder for $27.95. Don't know about steamed vs boiled. Service is great and you'll never wait for the next round.
