The menu is very eclectic, the food we had was good and there is a very good wine list. I ended up sitting at the bar with my 2 teenagers because a waitress directed us there even after I pointed out i was with kids. Oddly, a bartender was standing behind the bar a few stools down from me drinking... More

We spent longer than intended in Clearwater beach (lovely place) and needed to find a place to eat. My wife stumbled across this place and I'm so glad she did. The food was freshly prepared and delicious. There was a fantastic wine selection which I couldn't make the most (driving) and our 3 kids were made to feel very welcome.... More

An absolute hidden gem. Food was so good the first time, had to come back. The pizza's are just perfect, and the wine and drinks are outstanding. When we come back next year, this will be our dinner spot. Great service! Wish I could give it more than 5 stars!

My second visit to CWB and this is one of my favorite places! The first time we stopped in for a late night snack with some bubbles. The Margherita pizza was incredible and Noe made sure our glasses were always full. I was back this weekend and we had the Antipasto Tray and the Gourmet Cheese Tray. The mixture of... More

Stopped in for lunch on our vacation. The wine and beer selection was large and delicious. They serve many local beers, we tried several. The food was also good, very eclectic menu! My only complaint was, the chips that came with my sandwich were a bit stale. Almost like someone forgot to close the bag the night before. The menu... More

We never ate here and but we did stop here most nights for a drink. Several great local Floridian beers and one of the best Wine selections I've seen. Wish I had something to eat here now however It's well worth a visit.

I ate here with two other family members.. Unfortunately all of our entrees we're disappointing. The pizza sounded so delicious on the menu, but it wasn't very flavorful! The salad dressing w/the salad was way too acidic. Our cheese plate was the only thing that really was good, to okay. The server was kind of flighty, & didn't seem very... More

Very unassuming but fabulous food at really good prices. Recommend the antipasto to share to start. Limited but great menu. Would definitely advise a visit!
