Clearwater Beach Restaurant Week, an event promoted by the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce, is celebrating its 8th year from May 15-25, 2017. The 2 week-long culinary celebration offers ‘foodies’ an opportunity to experience top-notch dining or casual cuisine, at all your favorite hot spots. Don’t hesitate to try something new! The annual event is a great benefit for both diners and the restaurant community. An incredible array of different cuisines is a cornerstone of the beach vibrancy, which is one of many reasons Clearwater Beach was voted the #1 Beach in the Country by users on Tripadvisor. USA TODAY crowned Clearwater Beach “The Best Beach Town” in Florida in 2013, The Best Place to View a Sunset” and home to Florida’s Best Attraction, Clearwater Marine Aquarium!
The Restaurant Week celebration will commence with the fabulous Clearwater Beach Taste Fest on Friday, May 12 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM with fireworks, along the white sandy beaches and the emerald-blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The festive affair allows restaurants to showcase their signature cuisine and specialties to thousands of beach guests and local patrons. There will be craft beer & wine sponsored by Southern Wine & Spirits. Clearwater Gas System and Shephard’s Beach Resort Stage Sponsors will feature live entertainment by local and nationally recognized recording artists The Black Honkeys!
During Restaurant Week, each participating restaurant will offer a delicious prix fixe menu priced from $15 to $35. Some restaurants offer a prix fixe menu for lunch at prices of $10 to $15.
Restaurants will be competing for the “Best in Class” in a variety of categories. Diners will have an opportunity to vote on their experience at each restaurant. Each vote will be entered into a drawing for great prizes. This year our GRAND PRIZE will be a two-night stay at Shephard’s Beach Resort.
