Upscale steak and seafood restaurant Water Oak has been dishing out crab crusted grouper and filet mignon out of its doors since its quiet opening in Safety Harbor last month.

It’s steak and seafood-focused menu provides a variety of options from a raw bar with oysters and ceviche to comfort dishes like its Fish Camp shrimp, scallops, and grits— as well as more casual bites like salads and burgers. 

Other stand-out dishes on Water Oak’s menu are its braised octopus, coconut green curry mussels, Wagyu skirt steak and Duck Confit. The new Safety Harbor spot also features indoor-outdoor seating and an extensive beer, wine, and cocktail selection. 

 Water Oak is now open from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily,  at  201 Main St. in Safety Harbor. Its neighbors The Tiki Tavern also just opened around the corner, so grab a beer and watch the big game after your fancy filet mignon dinner at Water Oak.
