That Kind of Food Done Right

This is the classic Florida joint. First recommended by a local friend, we make this a stop every time we're in town. Several variations under the same owner around the beach and they're all good value for money and that type of food done to perfection. Awesome!

Staff were very friendly, but it was very noisy. My husband had the pot pie & he loved it. My grouper tacos were nothing spectacular. I returned a few days later & got fried oysters to go & they were very small & marginal.

Great little beachy resturant. Location is just on a street but just a block from Hilton and pier60. Really fresh seafood and not overly prepared. Friendly and quick service.

Loved the ambiance if this place: fun and fresh. Grouper is their specialty, so I was really disappointed by the small size of my portion and the flavor. I could have spiced it up with their tartar sauce, but it tasted like a doughnut filling: sweet and custard-esque, and I swear I detected a hint of cinnamon. Ew. The Cracked... More

Food Stuffed Grouper, Grouper Sand-o and kids meals. Both the grouper dishes were very good. The kids meals were average but its hard... More

I love Frenchy's. We have a family connection to this restaurant as we first came here with our Aunt and Uncle (who just loved it too), but we would come here anyway because the food is good and reasonable. Go early because it does get crowded. They have live music many afternoons and evenings and it is nice to sit... More
