The place to GATHER

Water Oak is a neighborhood seafood and steak bar located in Safety Harbor, Florida. The atmosphere is casual with indoor and outdoor seating. Our passion for Florida is seen in our focus on fresh local seafood, steaks, and produce. Come GATHER with us and enjoy seared ahi tuna nachos, braised octopus, fresh caught Florida grouper and hogfish. We have a full bar ready to create craft cocktails, pour you a cold craft beer, or enjoy a glass of wine.

Water Oak is located in downtown Safety Harbor right next to Baranoff Park, home to Safety Harbor’s famous Baranoff Oak Tree. We are located one block from Safety Harbor Resort and Spa, and just a quick drive from Dunedin, Clearwater, Palm Harbor, or Westchase.


This is my family’s go-to. We live in the Safety Harbor and come here almost weekly. The menu is superb and the service and atmosphere are incredible!

The food was absolutely delicious and fresh. The atmosphere was sophisticated yet casual and has a wonderful vibe. Our favorite new Safety Harbor Restaurant.

A wonderful dinner. First time visit for 4 of us. Salmon was exceptional, beef short rips, crab crusted grouper, and Lobster BLT were all winners. Cup of Lobster bisque was a nice starter. Will visit again when in area.

In Ages Past Mural In Water Oak • Safety Harbor
In Ages Past

Water Oak has the privilege to have a copy of the masterpiece by Christopher M. Still, “In Ages Past”, which was commissioned for the Florida House of Representatives. Still hoped that through this painting the viewer would be inspired to have a strong connection to-and a deep respect for-the ancient world of Florida, its beautiful native landscape, and its first inhabitants who undoubtedly admired the same spectacular sunsets we do today.

Christopher M. Still says “there is an intentional theme in the painting of eyes that are looking out to watch the viewer in the room. The shape of the opening between the oak tree and artifacts, down to the fish, creates a pattern based on the eye of the Key Marco deer head, which helps represent the eye of nature.”
