Nice spot on the Beach

Great menu and feature menu including healthy options. Beet salad could have had a bit more beets. :-) The service was good, kids enjoyed their meals. $7 parking at the beach parking lot, but was good fun to have dinner and then played at the beach after our early dinner until sunset.

It says it all. Great fresh grouper and seafood. Totally beach atmosphere. Ice cold beer and sand in your shoes. Many French locations in Clearwater and all with the same atmosphere and food producing an experience only found near the Gulf.

Staff were nice, food was ok, nothing amazing. The one thing that made us feel uncomfortable was that the staff were cleaning and tidying up for the night. We did go in quite late but they assured us they were still open for over an hour. They also seemed to be bickering with each other about the cleaning. Can only... More

My personal favorite of the Frenchy's restaurants. Great food, happy hour specials, and enough TV's for important sports viewing.

There wasn't much of a choice on the menu. The service was a bit slap dash and the meals were not very filling at all not what you expect in America

This is one of our regular stop on vacation. We typically will go at least twice while vacationing. I highly recommend the Grouper Reuben sandwich, the she crab soup and the gator bites. Very fun, beachh atmosphere. Can't wait til next year!
