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!
