Saturday afternoon lunch. There was no wait. Dining hall a little small. Place was crowded, service a little slow but worth the wait. I had fried oysters which was superb. My pina coloda was not as sweet, but still good. My other friends ate shrimp which the portion was pretty large. Some ate the Mahi Mahi sandwich and they loved... More

We went to eat here after it was recommended by several people. It was just ok. Grouper sandwich was almost burned. French Fries barely cooked. All in All it was only average and I wouldn't go back.

I was here with a large group on a Saturday night. They do not accept reservations, but we waited approximately 35 minutes for a table for 7. There are not many original options for dining on the Clearwater beach strip. The big hotels like Hilton and Hyatt have restaurants within the hotels but much more expensive. Near Frenchy's is another... More

Great atmosphere, with disappointing food. Visited Tuesday evening, with family. If you fry fish enough, you cook it, but you kind of lose the taste. Not real value.

Just tried this restaurant on my first trip to Clearwater Beach, FL. The atmosphere, food, drinks, etc were all amazing. I went with 2 other friends and we all tried something different and couldn't decide what meal was the best. Definitely recommend!

Just across from the beach so perfect to thwart that lunch time hunger. Lots of nice things on the menu. My daughter had the salad special with calamari and I had the same but with shrimp both were well presented and scrumptious. With drinks the check came to just over $30. There are cheeper options. We eat outside but there... More
