Impressive Waterfront Receptions

Rather than a reception inside a waterfront hotel, savvy couples are finding restaurants choosing by the water that are less expensive. The staff often works with couples to create a group menu and banquet pricing. Wedding receptions at waterfront restaurants cost less because there are no site fee and the menu is limited.

Like hotels, restaurants offer a special space and a restricted number of hours. Tables can be pushed together or you may reserve private space (for food minimums) at restaurants such as The Columbia, The Edge and The Marina Cantina in Clearwater and The Salt Rock Grille, Indian Shores, Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, Madeira Beach and The Island Way Grille, Clearwater Beach.

Unlike hotels, bar service on site eliminates the usual bar service fees resorts charge. Other waterside spots include and Crabby’s On the Pass, Treasure Island, The SeaBreeze & Caddy’s, Indian Shores and The Buoy, St Pete Beach. As an added bonus, some restaurants offer private rooms too.

Beach & Bay Views

Restaurants with beach views include The Palm Pavilion, Clearwater Beach and Crabby Bill’s (seafood), St Pete Beach, along with Sloppy Joe’s, and Caddy’s in both Treasure Island & Madeira Beach. Caddy’s Restaurants in Indian Shores, Madeira Beach & Treasure Island offer beach and bay views.

They offer a unique blend of casual waterside experiences without the pomp and circumstance of many other higher priced and crowded beachside restaurants. So you may make your arrangements at one of these great places, ask Our Wedding Concierge for a list of contacts please.

Waterfront Receptions

Having a wedding reception at a restaurant costs less because private space or shared spaces are free with the purchase of food.  Your guests will enjoy the refreshing, spacious views. Some facilities offer separate, private or semi private outdoor decks and rooms.  Sometimes couples share their experience amongst other diners inside the dining room, reserving a portion of a restaurant. The section is often separated by a cake table.
