Second Frenchy's We Ate At!

We visited with my family and two other families for lunch. This was the second Frenchy's we visited on our trip, which I was happy to do because I wanted to try their Buffalo Grouper sandwich. Loved it! And the wait staff was so great, at one point my son knocked over my, almost full, sangria and... read more

Menu is good, vibe is excellent. Food has no complaints but usual frozen chips etc.. Drinks are good and the location is great. Much better than the cafe opposite.

The food was decent but nothing special. Good price on crab legs considering how expensive they are at other restaurants nearby. The beach view was nice, and the prices were ok compared to every other restaurant around them. Good place for lunch or a snack when coming off the beach.

Frenchy's Saltwater Cafe was very nice! We had Andy as our waiter. He was very accommodating, helpful, and friendly! The "gator" was very tasty! The fried shrimp and French fries is also extremely good. We had key lime pie for dessert and it was just delicious! I would go again in a heart beat.

Great meal with friendly waitstaff. All seafood was very fresh and they have a wide variety of drinks. I recommend going before 1730 to avoid the dinner rush.

Took the family to Frenchy's tonight. Overall, we were quite pleased. We were seated right away. The service was quick. I had the Taquila Lime Shrimp Tacos and my wife, a Royal Quesadilla. We swapped 1/2 of each dish. Both were quite tasty. Average prices were good as well with all of our dishes being between $10 & $15 each.... More

We visited twice just to have the Garlic Crab Fries again. They were so good! Service was friendly but a little slow as they were extremely busy.

Pulled up today by boat. Nice dock. Our party had fried shrimp, grilled grouper sandwich, fish dip, fried grouper sandwich, fish tacos, and rum runners. The grilled stuff was just okay...a little undercooked. The fried stuff and the rum runners were fantastic!

Tried to go to all the Frenchys on our trip and only made it to two. But, I wish we have made it to all. Food was great! Service was great! Drinks were wonderful! A must stop.
