A Letter From Cooters 3-1-2022


Good Day Friends!

As we begin the first day of March, we would like to take this opportunity to share upcoming and exciting news with you. March 2022 will be the final month of operations as Cooters Restaurant & Bar on Clearwater Beach. On April 1st this establishment will have a new owner and a new name. Although it was a decision filled with mixed emotions, it was necessary and we are happy with the outcome.

One of our main concerns in the decision making process was taking care of our dedicated staff, many of whom have been at Cooters for well over a decade, and some for over 20 years. Fortunately, the majority of our staff as well as our daughter Amanda, will stay on with the new owner.

We are extremely grateful for the support over the years from our amazing staff, family, friends, wonderful guests, and business associates. It’s been a great run for over 25 years, but it’s time for a new chapter to begin.

So while the ownership and name will change, most everything else of what you know and love about Cooters will remain the same. The menus, specials, awesome staff and cool beach vibe will still be here.

We will be spending time this month working with the new owner, Glenn Sutch, to make this a smooth transition. Many of you may already know Glenn! He and his brother Gary Sutch, are the owners of Coco’s Crush Bar and Grill on Clearwater Beach.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support over the years. We hope that you will support us in our decision as we bring Cooters to a close, and continue that support for Coco’s in the future.


Barry and Carol Mears
