Jobs | Now Hiring

The Palm Pavilion, now in its 96th year, exists because of our dedicated team and our loyal customers. We invite you to consider becoming a member of our staff. 

One family has owned the Palm Pavilion since 1964 and the operation is now overseen by the second generation of the family. Located on the north end of the island of award-winning Clearwater Beach, we offer a casual open-air environment with breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico. We are a popular landmark attraction visited by locals as well as visitors from around the globe. With daily live music, we draw customers for lunch right through the evening hours. Many come for dinner and to watch the sunset … as long as Mother Nature cooperates! 

Our menu features seafood, sizzling steaks, chicken and seafood wraps, shrimp and crab chowder, smoked ribs or our famous beach burger, to name a few.

Our To-Go Menu can be ordered by phone or in person. To-Go food is picked up in the Palm Shoppe, adjacent to the restaurant.

See the footer of this webpage for our hours of operation. The restaurant is closed Thanksgiving and Christmas.
