Great Service and Grouper Sandwich

Very helpful and trying to please. Diverse menu with many seafood entrees. My wife tried one of the monthly items (Shrimp and butternut squash), it was a little anemic in shrimp count and too many peppers for her taste(and the cost). They were out of the ingedients for one their special drinks... read more

My husband and I dined here for the last night of our honeymoon. Upon arriving it is very confusing on where to find a host/hostess stand? Eventually I made myself known and we were seated. Service was slow, the portions of food were smaller than we imagined but was good nonetheless. I feel being here in early February and having... More

Cant beat a fresh grouper sandwich sitting on the beach looking at the gulf. Staff is friendly and courteous. Food comes out lightning fast and is always consistently good

Only have Grouper while in Florida. If you can find it on most restaurant menus if is highly priced. At Frenchy's it is everything you can imagine Grouper. It is fresh caught and served a myriad of ways. Delicious and moderately priced. A fun place to eat. Service and food are excellent.

Great food, great atmosphere. It's a very casual place to done. Great for the family or a couples night out. Get the shrimp, lobster, crab or fish and you'll be happy. Make sure to get one of their signature drinks too. Highly recommend!

Stumbled on this place on the way back to Orlando. Took the family for lunch. Was pleasantly surprised. Food was great, service with a smile and it was right on the beach with parking. Food was amazing. Fish was so fresh and the taste was out of this world. Staff were friendly and quick too.

Wanted to grab a quick lunch on our first day in the Clearwater Beach area. Frenchy's has a few places and we stumbled upon this one. Warn day in February encouraged us to sit outside. "Sit any where you find a clean table", we were told. 1/3rd of the tables were occupied, 1/3rd were clearly not clean because diners had... More

I went to Frenchy's with a friend for appetizers and drinks. We ordered a dozen oysters and they were so delicious we ended up with three total orders. I also had a bowl of the she-crap soup, and it was good as well. Our server was friendly and accommodating. I would definitely return on another visit to Clearwater.

One of my friends suggested Frenchy's one night when we're vacationing in Clearwater. I really love the vibe of the restaurant's open air plus the buffalo grouper sandwich I ordered was so full of flavor, I just had a beer that night but I saw the menu and they have a really good lineup of drinks. No wonder it's packed... More
