While vacationing in Clearwater, we wanted to celebrate a special occasion at a nice restaurant. The atmosphere was very inviting and comfortable and you can dress up or wear shorts and flip flops and fit in. The Beachcomber has a wine list with over 500 selections from which to choose.

We were not in a hurry, so put off ordering meals. The slow part came between ordering and receiving meals, which were incorrect so had to be replaced which caused another long wait.

Great food - Professional Service. Each time I visit I have a wonderful experience. It's very relaxing and the food & service are excellent. The chicken liver entree can be purchased as an appetizer and I highly recommend it. We most always have the fried chicken and it never disappoints.

Step back in time. We sat at the bar and had dinner. The locals were very friendly and lots of fun. Service was good. The food was very good, plentiful and traditional. Really took me back to dinners at the Club with family as a child.

Restaurant has charm and great food. Surf or turf, you can't go wrong. Lobster was fresh and filet mignon was tender as could be. Great meal!

Good food, great waitress and the ambiance was wonderful. Live piano music just the right volume. If you want something other than beach bars, this is the place.
