Classy yet comfortable dining on the water, free shuttle from the hotel, eating outside when it is not so hot is nice

Our group of ten met at this restaurant at the Hyatt Grand across the bridge from Clearwater. We had drinks while waiting for our table. Staff was friendly and professional. We had a few calamari and crab cake appetizers. They were very good, especially the calamari, which was cooked perfectly and was great without sauce. I ordered the sea scallops... More

If you go here I would recommend apps/drinks outside. They have a good view. Positive - attentive staff, good location on the water and food is decent. Negative - it looks like a cafeteria in Disney inside. It was dirty, at least when I went. The food is not deserving of the price. Oysters - $4/each and too small Hanachi... More

My wife had been here once as a guest of one of her bosses. She had told us how amazing it was and decided on it for her birthday meal. The two of us and our two high school age daughters. She had bragged and told us how good it was but we were not prepared just how outstanding this... More

This once outstanding buffet is merely a shell of what was once a great venue. The view is still great; the food isn't. The carving station offered only ham. The "hot" selections were mundane with none of the former upscale entres that used to populate the board. The other main offering were equally not impressive. The omelette selections were fine....

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. Without feedback from our valued guests, we cannot improve on the areas in which we fall short.

Top of the line place to eat at the Grand Hyatt. The drinks were well made and the service was top shelf. The oysters and fish was very fresh and well prepared.

The food is excellent and served with professional elegance. Although it is a bit pricey, the setting view and ambience is worth it. A must for a romantic dinner at sunset.

We thought we picked one of the best fine dining seafood restaurant in Tampa and we were so disappointed. The food was so salty I almost had a sodium attack. We forced ourselves to eat the fish and lobster tail bit left the lobster Mac & cheese pretty well untouched. And the waitress didn't even ask us why we didn't... More
