While Clearwater Beach has no shortage of fabulous seafood dining spots, carnivore hunger pangs can be satisfied at numerous eateries in and around the beach. Expect to easily find your fill of tender steaks, ribs, chops and barbecue but for purists in search of flavorful, two-fisted hamburgers, these  casual hot spots are definitely calling your name.


Good eats, decent prices and friendly staff pretty much says it all for Clear Sky Beachside Cafe on Clearwater Beach. This popular laid-back restaurant, just a block from the beach, beckons you to come hungry and tantalizes with traditional and specialty menu items. A dozen tempting burger choices make the decision tough but hearty eaters should zone in on the Sky’s the Limit Burger. Sizzling applewood smoked bacon strips, aged cheddar and smoky mesquite barbecue sauce atop a juicy half-pound burger are served on a soft brioche bun with potato wedges. You’ll need a run on the beach to work it off!
