Fathers Day Brunch/Clearwater Beach area

I am looking for a great place that serves brunch or really good breakfast for this weekend. We live out by Clearwater Beach and am willing to drive even towards St.Pete Beach. Thanks!

    The most popular, or at least most notable, brunch spot on Clearwater Beach is at Island Way Grill which is on Island Estates. I believe it's $22 for a pretty good selection of items. Here's a link that has their brunch menu:


    If you're willing to drive to St. Pete Beach, you can be in downtown just as fast. There's a great Saturday brunch there as well...with a special Bloody Mary Bar. Be warned, you'll leave a bit tipsy if Bloody Marys are your thing.

      Matt, Thank you so much! I had no clue Islandway Grill had brunch, I've always wanted to go there too. I think I will make reservations for this place, its close to home too. Thanks again!

      I have heard Island Way is great but don't forget Oystercatchers in Clearwater is famous for their brunches. In case IW is booked.

        Oystercatchers is in Tampa at the end of the Courtney Cambell Causeway.

          Oystercatchers has recently reopened after a total remodel. Their menu has changed as have their prices (over $50 pp now.) Check it carefully before you go. Great view of the Bay though!

            I think it's 45 and includes Bloody Marys and Mimosas. I was there in March after they reopened and it was wonderful.

          Rusty's in the Sheraton Sand Key, just south of Clearwater Beach puts on a nice, reasonably priced brunch on special occasions. We were there on Mother's Day and brunch was $19.99 per person. It was a buffet with an omelet station and had lots of nice little touches. There was a salmon dish that wasn't overcooked. There was peel and eat shrimp. They had blintzes. They had a carving station with roast beef and a stuffed chicken breast. There were a couple of breakfast pasta dishes. They had dessert shooters in a few flavors, cholocate, creme caramel and strawberry. They don't have this extended buffet for every occasion, so you would wan't to call first. I think the regular weekend buffet is $14.99.

            For really good breakfast I would drive to Gulfport, The Waterwitch, nice location with waterview, traditional, international and 100% organic.
