    The beach theme is implicit in the name, and this place sure lives up to it. Britt's has a a wood bar and a neon-infused distorted glass wall that divides the room. The deck wraps around the restaurant, providing a stunning sunset view. The grill serves up a liquor-heavy list of island drinks, which never drop below the $6.50 mark. Beers are mostly domestic, featuring Amberbock and Bud. The pizzas battle it out with shrimp and filets ranging from $6 to $20.

  • Caretta on the Gulf


    Cuisine: American upscale, Seafood upscale
    Features: Beach/Waterfront, Date night, Live music, Upscale

    Clearwater Beach: 500 Mandalay Ave., Clearwater Beach, 33767

    Sandpearl Resort does not suffer from the hotel-dining blahs. It contains a nice poolside cafe and a coffee shop, but the major accomplishment is Caretta on the Gulf. Named for a species of loggerhead turtle, the restaurant has all the elements that make for success: sleek and knowledgeable service, a gorgeous beach view, stunning decor, plus tasty and fair-priced food and drink. A lovely raw bar near the restaurant entrance sets the tone: ceviche; oysters on the halfshell; spiny lobster and spicy tuna sushi rolls. Then the rosy glow and crackle of a wood burning oven sends out roasted fishes, chicken and meats that for the most part are paired with thoughtful, unusual side dishes and sauces.

    Clearwater Beach: 10 Bay Esplanade, Clearwater, 33767

    The spacious layout of the white wood-frame building and its swift servers accommodate large crowds comfortably and efficiently. Even at sunset, there's rarely a wait. While away on a big wrap-around porch, enjoying stunning views of Clearwater Beach's shoreline and sugary white sand, or dine indoors in the A/C. Full liquor and beer are served, and the PP makes the best pina colada in the South. The grub is better than average too. Choose from grouper tacos, surf 'n' turf sandwiches and salads, jerk chicken and grilled portobello wraps. Rock, folk, reggae and jazz performers entertain day and night.
