Dining & Nightlife
When you work up an appetite, check out Frenchy’s, a Clearwater original with several locations throughout town. They’re famous for their casual fresh seafood, from grouper sandwiches to crab legs. There’s also Bob Heilman’s Beachcomber, a storied eatery with an upscale twist, and Spanish fare at the waterfront Columbia Restaurant – Clearwater Beach. Don’t want to part with that lovely beach? Grab a table at Palm Pavilion Beachside Grill & Bar for some seafood and great beach views. In mainland Clearwater, feast on delectable tapas at Ceviche Clearwater, a local chain that’s rich on ambiance and flavor.
Many hotels and bars here offer laid-back, beachy nightlife, often with live music and drink specials. Don’t miss Shephard’s Tiki Beach Bar and Grill, which has an indoor nightclub and outdoor tiki bar for dancing the night away island-style.
