Great music, drinks, food and tropical atmosphere!

This Frenchy's location is particularly awesome because it sits right on the beach of Clearwater, not too far down from the pier. When our group went on a Friday night, the place was busy, but we only had a 5 minute wait! The drinks are strong, and the grouper is just about the best you'll... read more

This is one of our favorites while on vacation in Clearwater Beach. We were seated on the patio, on the beach. Our server was lively and upbeat. The food was outstanding. I had the grouper, scallop, shrimp, and crab cake combo. We live in Maine, and have never had crab cakes like this. Hardly any filler, all crab! It was... More

We can here twice for lunch and were not disappointed. Great lively place, right on the beach, with music and terrific service. It can get crowded but is worth the wait for a table. The crab and grouper were excellent as were the drinks! Very friendly, polite service and the atmosphere is pure fun. I like that it has a... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local resident. He kept stressing the Rockaway Grill location, as there are a number of Frenchy's available to dine at. He kept telling us, best grouper on the island. That's what we ordered and he was telling the truth, it was amazing. The order was so big I didn't think I could... More

Excellent food, casual fun and best Grouper Taco! I know who wants a Grouper Tamale? You do! Or anything else they serve! It's great.

Locals and tourists gather here. Great for after a day on Clearwater beach or just stopping by and grabbing a grouper sandwich or some shrimp. Timing is everything as it can get crowded during peak times. Be patient and kick back and enjoy the beach atmosphere. Famous for their grouper sandwiches which are a must try!

Better music and room to roam. Tried couple of sweet beverages and spent too much money on them as the 2nd one was very good but of course too much ice for the price.

We enjoyed our whole dining experience. The food, drinks and wait staff were great. Love dining on the beach! When we are back in the area, we will return.
