    July 31, 2022 a special, special dinner. Our 53rd Anniversary. We had a 5 o'clock reservation. The doors were opened and a voice said, "sorry folks, our air conditioning has gone out. It is very hot inside". We thought, what the heck. Tonight is a special dinner. We will stay. My wife ordered the Fixe Salmon and I ordered the Fixe filet. The meals were cooked to perfection. We each ordered a glass of Champagne to celebrate our anniversary. The server returned at some point and said " we are closing now. It is too hot for the chefs in the kitchen". We completed eating our meals. No one from management came by our table to apologize. We understand that it was not their fault, but, management should have accepted the responsibility of telling what was happening. It was not fair for the server to do that. As a PR gesture, management should have taken the cost of the champagne off our check. But, no discount of any kind was offered.

    We live nearby and eat here when we are in town. The reason that I only gave it four stars is that the menu on a Thursday night was essentially the same as when we ate there in May. No specials. We were told those were only Friday and Saturday. Limited dessert choices. For people going there once , I’m sure the limited menu is fine. Perhaps they don’t have an interest in repeat local business. However, food is consistently excellent and service is top notch in a very attractive dining room.

    Unfortunately, the cook that evening couldn't get my husbands steak cooked properly (ordered rare and it cane out well done, sent it back and the second steak was barely medium rare) and the green beans were raw. But, the server, I wish I would have wrote down his name, was absolutely fantastic. The entire wait staff was great. It was our 1 year anniversary and they were a delight.

    My wife and I travel to Clearwater Casino frequently. One of the highlights of the trip is our dinner at "the Clearwater". On July 17th. we had dinner there and were very disappointed. We look forward to the wonderful salads and especially the clam chowder. We have a restaurant in Mount Vernon and one of our feature items is homemade clam chowder. We often talk of how your clam chowder is one of the best we have ever had and I must tell you ours is delicious! The chowder we had on Sunday was the consistency of oatmeal! Not much flavor and lumpy. We sent it back. There was no problem with the server when we returned it. He was very congenial and understanding. I recommend you have your kitchen manager keep an eye on the chowder. If overheated or left too long, it "breaks down". In the future we will ask for a sample before ordering. We are not complaining but thought the kitchen should know this. We would like to know if it happened in our establishment.

    The food was poor at best. My steak was over cooked, was not a quality cut of meat. My wife's prime rib was almost raw and the horse radish had no flavor. Service was friendly but not assertive on checking if we needed anything.

    I will have to accept some of the blame for my mediocre review as I should have been more proactive with my issues. My wife and I both ordered filet mignon, hers a 6 ounce and mine an 8 ounce. Acknowleging that many kitchens are short handed it still took longer that I expected for our meals to arrive. Mine was supposed to be medium rare and my wife's medium, Mine was more like medium with very little pink and my wife's was to be medium but was done. Her baked potatoe was cold when it came and had to go back. I mentioned that I share some of the responsibility for not mentioning the doneness but it is also something a well functioning kitchen should have not let happen. The restaurant was not at al busy when we were seated and stayed that way. The servers were attentive and friendly but checked back on us while walking away. The priceline was reasonable but not cheap.

    Usually order the filet mignon as it is awesome. Sadly, I really wanted a burger....as did my 3 friends. The meat was absolutely flavorless. No idea how you make that happen to a $17 burger but they managed.

    Great food as always. Our server was excellent. The only area of concern was with the "hostess", Kelly I believe is her name. She was a bit rude and informed us several times that we were "10 minutes late"! We try to be on time with reservations. I think a gentle reminder perhaps once would have been sufficient. We own a sports bar and restaurant. Customer service is very important. The hostess is oftentimes the "first" impression one gets.

    We were seated right away, with a view of the water liked I had requested for my Husbands birthday. Ordered our drinks, and received them in a timely manner, except my husband scotch on the rocks looked more like water on the rocks. The rest of the party was happy with their drinks. My son in law who used to be a bartender (or whatever they call them now) said his dirty martini was the best he has ever had in a restaurant. They bought us warm bread and cute little balls of butter that was actually soft. Most of the time restaurants bring out frozen butter. 2 of the party ordered a Cesar salad, which looked really good, daughter ordered a green salad, which looked good and their was enough to share with us. We like our salads greens to be rinsed in cold water and not just taken out of bag and thrown in a bowl. They rinsed theirs which rates as a 10 to me. We ordered the petite Prime Rib, which was done just the way we ask for. Baked potatoes, with all the trimmings was delicious, green beans were crunchy which we all like. Kids ordered a filet Menon and it was done just right for them, plus they had cheesy mashed garlic potatoes. Which we all tried and they were excellent. Ended dinner with dessert, which was delicious. Cream brulee was Delicious, my daughter and I ordered the Chocolate cake, it was realllly rich, but good. The only things I would give a 5 to is the waitress. We ask for more water, never got it, ask for more bread with dinner never received it, it was like her mind was somewhere else. Otherwise staff was good.

    The quality of food has dropped significantly in the past year. The financial corners have been cut and it’s apparent. Even the au jus was as light as chicken broth, which is just one of the ways you get less for your dollar here at Clearwater. The service was great as always, and the ambiance is top notch.

    We have gone here many times. The 3 times prior to this were not good at all. But this time was exceptional. Our server Jodi, was wonderful and even suggested a new wine that my wife truly enjoyed. Our steaks were actually cooked perfectly this time. We will return in the hope that the Clearwater continues to regain it's reputation as our "go to" steak house.

    It was my second time dining at The Clearwater and both times were excellent. The food was delicious as was the service. I think Jody was our service both times and she's the best. I have recommended The Clearwater to several friends who I knew would be attending the Ruben Studdard concert. He was excellent too! Our whole experience at the casino was a wonderful customer experience.

    It was not what my husband & I expected. Steak was kinda on the cold side and looked boiled instead of grilled/charred. Our waitress was nice but a bit forgetful. It was our wedding anniversary and I stated that on my reservation. No acknowledgement of that special event. Maybe it was just a bad night. Oh well 😔

    Great job as always! And Jody, Deborah, and the others always make the experience that much better! Good news, the Maple Pork Chop is back and is delicious. This should be a permanent menu item. The only thing we would suggest, is either changing the menu a bit or expanding it with a couple more options.

    We dined here twice and just love the restaurant because of the friendly service, the ambience, and the fantastic food!!!!the first time around, we ordered the sashimi plate and cannot rave enough. My husband is half Japanese and we do eat sushi very frequently, and internationally . This was by far one of the best sushi presentations we have ever seen, with artistic detail given to everything from the super fresh vegetables, via the rare fresh seaweed, to the generously sized sashimi pieces. More importantly, the fish was amazingly fresh, of beautiful deep color, and absolutely delicious, —all in all of a quality way above many authentic Japanese restaurants we have been to. It left us wishing for more sushi and sashimi options on the Menü just to see how the chef would serve them. This is not a sushi restaurant though and The second time around my husband tried a steak which he equally raved about - concerning quality and taste. We therefore highly recommend this restaurant for any time you are seeking a special indulging dining experience !!
