Cooters Restaurant & Bar on Clearwater Beach

Welcome to Cooters Restaurant & Bar! The premier location on Clearwater Beach for Seafood, Steaks, and FUN! Spring Training Headquarters on Clearwater Beach! 

  If you want to get away from cookie-cutter "chain" restaurants, you've come to the right place. We're a little off the beaten path on Clearwater Beach -- but that's one of the reasons the Locals love us! Our food is prepared fresh on the premises, and our seafood is delivered fresh daily. Visitors to Clearwater Beach are often in search of a great Grouper Sandwich, and you'll find it at Cooters, along with so much more!  Many of our out of town visitors tell us they wish they found us sooner during their trip, because if they had, they would have been here daily!

Not only does Cooters offer a broad selection of outstanding seafood, steaks, burgers, wings, and sandwiches... we also offer surroundings that whisk you away from the common place, and good times that will give you long-lasting smiles and great memories.  We're family owned and operated, and family friendly!

We have a legendary Happy Hour featuring the coldest beer on the beach and amazing specials on oysters, wings & shrimp! The locals will tell you Cooters is the place to go for "The Best Food and Fun on the Beach!"

We invite you to stop in for our lively Happy Hour, every day 3-6,  and while you're here check out our mouth-watering Daily Specials. We also have Late night Happy Hour 10 pm- 1 am!

Have fun perusing our walls filled with license plates, pictures and other memorabilia given to us over the years by our loyal customers and friends!

Come Live a Little with us at Cooters! Come for the Food, Stay for the Fun!
