    The pitcher of Sangria is always a great choice - and Jeff, our server rocked!! Get a table overlooking the beach. There are fans and a nice breeze even when it's really hot

    This place has a great view, I had the Rum Runner, the drink was weak but I had the Hurricane Shrimp & it was delicious. They're served on large serving of of rice & black beans, so much food.

    One of the reasons we love Clearwater Beach. Palm has a great atmosphere with tasty food and awesome drinks. The view of the beach or a Gulf sunset are enough to put you in a vacation frame of mind..

    Fun bar inside. Dine on the deck. Live music. Fabulous food: scallops, mahi mahi, grouper, and the Hurricane Shrimp were all outstanding! Wheelchair accessible. Kid friendly. Gift shop.

    I have loved this place for a few years now. It's my go to spot for Clearwater for good food, music, and view. I like their draft choices but their drinks are too expensive for my taste

    We recently returned after years away since the staff has been augmented by our favorite x- Frenchy employees and I have it say they have the best charbroiled hamburger on the beach.. IMO..

    Food: eh. Atmosphere: Great. Staff: super nice. Salad was sad, brown and wilty. Have a beer. Chat with the wonderful older couple that sits near the entrance! (matching shirt and visor always!!)

    Heavenly Beach Martini is awesome. Sliders are good, shrimp has more flavor than the lobster wrap. Be sure to get drink coasters otherwise when the drinks melt it runs off the table & down your legs.

    Drinks are strong and yummy!!! Chunky monkey and rum runner are fabulous. Key West chicken burrito is so good!

    The best Piña Coladas, but the bar service sucks right now. Everyone is cleaning and passed by me at least 5 times before I got served. And even now, no one is even saying hi.

    Located directly on the sugar white sand of Clearwater Beach - great for sunsets or lazy beach days. Casual comfort beach food and live music

    Music & the view. Big TIP: be aware the parking meters are in force until 1AM. The signs are few and far between.

    A little busy, but definitely worth the wait. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Will definitely tell others about it.

    Service was a little slow but super friendly bar tenders. $2.50 for a domestic draft (12oz) isn't too bad. They had live music but the dude played the same songs over and over. Overall a good place

    Welcoming beachcombers since 1926, there's usually live music on the porch and sunsets are always free. The Short List: one of our top 5 best restaurants to watch the sunset. Read more

    We were sitting outside when a storm hit so we had to run inside. It was a bit loud with everyone else in there but my veggie burger was really good!

    Go to the Palm Pavilion and sit outside on the deck to catch the sunset, and enjoy the live music and be sure to try their sangria. Its a great way to start the weekend. Read more

    Had lunch there on Friday. They served us whitefish and called it grouper. If you want to actually eat Grouper, go to Frenchy's across the parking lot.

    Wasabi Scallops are delicious but not really all that spicy (as you'd expect wasabi to be).

    Food is decent and view out back is great, but nothing says welcome to central florida like the band playing bad covers of 70s-90s songs.
