Default Tampa area restaurants

Hey Guys,
I am looking for a good place for dinner preferable next to the water.
Kid friendly
Great food
great service
I will be having around 15 people with me.
Can be in the Tampa / St.Pete area or even Palm Harbor

Thanks in advance.

Check out:

Island Way Grille-Clearwater 1/2 way to the beach after the causeway on the right-pricey but good, watch for Hulk Hogan he's a regular.

Crabby Bill's at Gulf to Bay near 275-midrange price

Rumba's-at Gulf to Bay and Keene in Clearwater.

Beach is mad crowded today, be warned.

If you'd like a great steak, in an over the top bordello-esque atomsphere, make reserveations at Bern's. Second best steak I've had in my life. I'm not a wine drinker, but it seems they have an amazing wine cellar too. Make sure to check out the desert room upstairs......

Island Way is very good but I prefer Salt Rock over IW. All of the above are good suggestions though. Bern's is not on the water and a bit overrated in my opinion. For a great steak away from the water I prefer Shula's (Tampa) or Texas Cattle Company (St Pete). Texas Cattle is pobably the best value steak anywhere. They are a sister rest to Charleys, same great product with a little lower price.

Thanks for the suggestions. Has anyone been to the Salt Rock Grill? If so what did you think.
