Grouper Dinner

This is the best grouper I have eaten at any of the restaurants around Clearwater Beach - my absolute favorite and I order it (grilled) every time! It's delicious and perfectly cooked!

Mahi Mahi

If you have it grilled or blackened always comes out fresh and hot. Pair it with your favorite beverage from the bar with Dana or Jackie and you will always have a great meal

Mahi Tacos

Backwaters on Sand Key is a MUST stop each time we are in Clearwater! Great service and great food every time we have been. Love eating lunch while watching the sun on the water.

Seafood Salad

Visiting Sand Key, I’ve ate this salad 3 times!!!!!! It is absolutely delicious. All the ingredients compliment each other, the strawberries, cucumber, onion, lettuce, not to mention the dressing. I even asked for all shrimp one time instead of half shrimp & half scallops, they accommodated no problem. Staff polite. Over all experience 10. Oh one more thing…loved the key lime pie.

Sea Scallops

I just had the most absolutely scrumptious scallops I have tasted during my current visit to Clearwater. My sides were delicious compliments of asparagus and rice. The atmosphere was spectacular sitting outside on the intercostal at a fabulous high top! Finally, our waiter Jason was friendly and helpful with our selection. I will definitely be back! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

The Anniversary Burger

Backwater's has been under new ownership for the last year and the small changes have made a big difference. Staff seems more enthusiastic and the food is great quality. I had the anniversary burger and it was very good, served with fries. We will definitely return soon.
