Delicious, Different, A Must Try!

We are big fans of Cork and Brew! The owner is a super nice guy too. We also absolutely love the beer selection.

Their signature, the 1 menu item you must try, is the Beachwalk Feast. It is a delicious combination of six top neck clams, large bairdi crab, and 1/2lb of fresh gulf shrimp. So it sounds like enough to share, but you probably won’t want to 🙂 Onto the drinks! This is where you really get sucked in 🙂 One of the reasons we love Clearwater Beach so much is most of the drinks are not...
