Lance bought a groupon to Beach Fyre BBQ Grille awhile back, so we headed to Clearwater Beach on our day off last week to try it out. We were just in that area a few weeks back for Treasure Island’s Sanding Ovations sand sculpting competition.
Beach Fyre was a few blocks north of the busy area of Clearwater Beach off Causeway Boulevard. But that meant it was easier to find a parking spot than the more popular areas. I was hoping that it would have a beach view, but it was facing Mandalay Avenue in a shopping strip.
It was beautiful weather out, so they had the doors open with a nice breeze coming through. We were there in the middle of the day, so it was pretty quiet, but it sounds like it’s a popular spot in the evenings for live music, karaoke, and open mic nights.
We had a few beers, and since it had BBQ in the name, we figured we’d try out their ribs. They are slow cooked in the oven, finished in an open pit, and basted with smokey-sweet BBQ sauce. We split a full rack which came with 2 sides (we had the tossed salad and the mac n’ cheese).
I’m glad we split the meal because it was a huge portion. It wasn’t anything fancy, but it was pretty good food and the people were very friendly.
Beach Fyre BBQ Grille is located at 608 Mandalay Ave, Clearwater Beach, FL 33767 and is open 12pm – 2:30am every day.
