My husband and I went here on our last night in Clearwater Beach. Up until this experience we had chosen fairly laid back but very good restaurants for our meals. I rated most of those experiences as 4 star. This was a 5 star experience. We made reservations the day before, which I strongly suggest since it was very busy... More

This was our second visit to IWG. We had the carpaccio as an appetizer and shared the hog fish. It was awesome. We are divers and spearfish so we appreciate this fish very much :) The server was very pleasant. I was happy to learn the restaurant was getting a new dishwasher appliance as the wine glasses were terrible. Maybe... More

We stumbled upon this place walking to the aquarium on Easter. We store on our walk back for dinner. They only had a buffet for Easter. We were able to sit at a high top near the bar since we didn't have a reservation . They had a hugh variety of food. I believe everyone could find what they like.... More

I was pleased with the early afternoon $14.99 diner special, which was quite good and included soup and dessert. I was very disappointed with the $4.50 mojito. When I pointed out to the server that someone seemed to have forgotten that mojitos typically contain rum, she responded with a very lame excuse rather than customer service.

We chose Island Way based on other reviews and were not disappointed. The location was great and fresh fish menu were both excellent. Island Way has its own seafood company, so the fish was some of the best we had while in FL. Island Way earned a "5" because it would be a great place for special occasions as well... More

We are staying in Clearwater for the Easter Weekend. The Island Way Grill came up as a place to get a buffer style brunch, without paying the 50-78$ at the hotels. The food was awesome. We got there between breakfast and dinner, the selection was more than anywhere else we looked. They handed out Mimosas as part of the cost.... More

We had dinner with friends, and found everything to be very good. Valet parking only, we found the dinner service to be prompt and friendly. A wide variety of drinks started us off, and the dinners were presented very nicely. A little on the pricey side, but it was well worth the experience. A nice, quiet atmosphere, and we ate... More
