2020 was the most challenging year for people who love to travel or hang out with friends. So much so that we stopped hearing “TGIF”. However, one thing that remained constant is people’s love for our brand, Badfins.

We are overwhelmed and super excited to be The Tripadvisor 2021 Travelers’ Choice Award Winner. We promise to keep loving you back and continue offering the best food and ambience at Clearwater.

So, what makes Badfins special? In a world full of complexities, we just keep it simple.  You love to drink; we love throwing happy hours on weekdays. You love to eat; we love giving you the best seafood, Mexican inspired fare, fresh salads and much more. Yep, we consider ourselves foodies and look forward to sharing delicious bites with you! You love beachside views; we give you one of the best scenic views of Clearwater beach. Oh yes, there is live music on Pint Nights as well. What is Pint Night? It’s one of our best happy hour specials where you can get 50% off all 34 draft beers. Yes you read that right! That is the best happy hour special on Clearwater Beach.

We aren’t bragging, but your love makes us one of the best restaurants on Clearwater Beach.

34 Local Beers on Tap & Handcrafted Cocktails

When you start drinking, there should be no reason to stop. We have the largest selection of beers on Clearwater Beach. While we are a restaurant we have also become known as Clearwater Beach’s Brewery. We don’t brew beers onsite but we do partner with the top local breweries in and around Clearwater.

Food quality and variety

Looking at Tripadvisor Reviews for Badfins Food + Brew, one thing is pretty clear – people love our delicious food. With changing times, we have added that extra layer of security and ease. You can order food by simply scanning the QR code on the menu. Guess what, you don’t need to download any app; scan the menu with your phone camera, and it will take you to the Badfins website, tap what you want, and that’s all.

The best advantage of going to a beach restaurant is the fresh seafood, which is incredibly tasty and hard to resist. We are known for American and Mexican casual eating – fish, fries, rice bowl, nuggets and much more. The handcrafted gourmet street tacos are a must-try. However, they are only available on Wednesdays. Our food menu caters to all; we not only offer everyone’s favorite wings, but we are also vegetarian-friendly.

When you are with your family, you think twice before eating out in these harsh times. However, don’t worry; we take every precaution and follow food safety protocols. Our Kids Menu is specially created keeping your little ones in mind. Never hesitate to have a relaxing family night on Clearwater beach.

Excellent ambience and fantastic view

It is located right next to the Clearwater Grand and across from the beautiful beach. The close proximity to the pier makes the location of the restaurant unbeatable. In a word, the atmosphere is “Fun.”

We make sure you get the best comfort while you are at Badfins; not just tasty cocktails and delicious food, but you also get free WiFi, television, takeout, table service and event booking. Our wonderful and friendly staff knows how to treat guests well.

Badfins Reward Program

The reward and loyalty programs are not always made for customers; they are usually a gimmick. You don’t get enough points; you cannot redeem the stuff you want. So why go for them at all? Well, it’s different at Badfins; the reward program here is unique. You eat your favorite food and drink your favorite beer, and get points, on days even double or triple reward points. Which means you earn the points super quick.

We don’t stop or limit the redemption of reward points. You can use them for any item on the menu and get them absolutely free.


If you want to wrap up a good beach day with a brew or hand crafted cocktail along with some fantastic local foods, your search stops at Badfins Food + Brew, one of the best restaurants and bars on Clearwater beach. The delicious seafood, the perfect blend of brew, local music, refreshing beach views, the sound of waves hitting the shores – what more do you want from life? See you soon at Badfins.
