My family wanted some good seafood on our last night at the beach. The grouper here was so good! The conch appetizer and fried squid was so good! My salad though had large chunks of romaine core and very large bites. I'm not a fan of that since it makes it hard to eat. Our waiter was not friendly and... More

Casual food and good drinks - short walk from the beach. Extremely casual dress. Friendly servers and quick service. Watch out for the high tourist season from November to April - gets crowded in there. Limited free parking

Experience the freshest seafood in FL at this restaurant. Can be noisy with the band playing but you can sit outside to enjoy the sounds of the waves as you dine. We ate here twice during our week vacation because it was so delicious!

If you are in Clearwater, you need to visit this restaurant. I tried the snapper as recommended by our server and my husband tried the grouper. Both dishes were delicious.... They had a decent selection of cocktails and wines and the bar tender was also very nice and friendly. We enjoyed his juggling! The unsophisticated, cool and rustic ambience was... More

The flatware was dirty and never replaced. Service was slow to non-existent. They screwed up my order, brought french fries ten minutes after my sandwich. I had to ask for ketchup; it came five minutes after that and ice cold. My Cuban sandwich was cold and mediocre. We had better food at the Holiday Inn!

If the seafood were any fresher, it would still be swimming. And it practically is at Frenchys. They have their own fleet of boats, right behind the restaurant, that constantly supply their restaurants , they have four on the beach, and their seafood market with fresh fish and crabs. One of the few places that I will eat fish at... More

I can not understand what all the hoopla is about this place. I did not experience it at all. As a matter of fact I found it to be average to below average. I can not believe this place passes the health inspection. it was filthy! The bartender was not sterilizing glasses as he should have been doing when washing...makes... More
