Welcome to

"The Port of Happiness"

[ Established 1940 ]

Open since the 1940s, the Bait House Tackle & Tavern is located in the Marina on beautiful Clearwater Beach.  

We are proud to offer the freshest fish, highest quality tackle and gear, and some of the best food in the area.

Our daily menu features locally caught seafood with an assortment of beer and wine.

Unwind on our open-air dock and soak in the sea breeze; 

watch charter boats come in with their “catch of the day;"

and enjoy some of our world-famous Drunken Shrimp and a locally-crafted beer;

or join friends for a laid-back lunch or dinner.  

Relax - the Bait House is the “Authentic Florida” you’ve been searching for!
