Five Questions with Cooters Raw Bar & Restaurant

We caught up with the Clearwater businesses that made it to the semifinals in our customer service competition. Here's what Cooters Raw Bar & Restaurant says is the secret to its customer success.

Name of Business: Cooters Restaurant & Bar (formerly Cooters Raw Bar)

Name of Owners: Carol and Amanda Mears

In Business Since? 1993

How long have you lived in the area? 

Carol has been here since 1978, Amanda was born and raised here. 

What do you love about living and working in our town? 

Love that Clearwater still has a "small town" feel. Love our beautiful beach!

What do you wish everyone who came into your shop knew about you?

That we really take pride in what we do. We are working owners. We'll do whatever it takes to make sure things are running smooth and our guests are happy. We want everyone who comes to our restaurant to enjoy our food, atmosphere and service. 

Can you tell us about a time you provided awesome customer service?

Last week (during an extremely busy spring break night) a coach for a college softball team called at 6:45 and said they had a group of 35 on their way for dinner, and they had forgotten to call earlier. Could we accommodate them? Could they all have separate checks?  We scrambled, but we did it!  And they loved us for it!

We had dinner here with a group of long-time friends and had a great time. The service was great and they had no problem accommodating one of our friends with special diet concerns. The owners jump right in to help....no problem working right along with their employees to make sure their customers are happy. They deserve to win for all their hard work making sure their customers are well-taken care of and wanting to come back again and again.

This sounds great. I'll have to try it out next time I'm in the Clearwater area. I've been raw for three years and I'm always trying to find new raw places to eat at. Thanks for this! Best, Natalie Check out my raw food review blog at www.rawfoodland.com!
