Thursday night date night trip to Clearwater yielded plenty of fun and tasty food. An employee from Wings kindly directed us to Frenchy's Rockaway Grill and we were glad he did. It was busy, LOUD, (with a live band) had great service and tasty seafood as well as "bar/grill" food. Our server (Drew) was great and took good care of... More

Service isn't the best, food is good but nothing ground breaking. Location is amazing. Toes in the sand, cold beer, waves etc. What else do you need?

One of five Frenchy's restaurants in Clearwater Beach. This is our favorite location because of the view of the bench and sun set. Food is good and fair selection of beer on tap.

First time in FL, spent 4 days and this was our first stop so I had to try the grouper this place is famous for, and it was delish! We also had oysters, rocktopus, fried clam strips, crab bisque, and a few other items. Everything was really good. Wish we had gone back compared to the other places we tried.

Always a wait at night but worth it the seafood salad and the octopus are always to die for. The location is great casual place to watch the sun set or listen to music. It is one of a many locations all slightly different style but similar menu.

This was our second trip to Frenchies. The patio outisde has a perfect view of the crystal clear water and white beach at Clearwater Beach. The food is mostly upscale bar food, and by that I mean what you'd expect in a bar but more varied and a little better. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and the service is... More

This is a can't miss place when visiting Clearwater. There are a couple locations, all of which are good, but the Rockaway Grill is the best. It's right on the beach, so if it's not too hot sit on the patio. The grouper sandwhich is the best I've ever had. I've been here many times, and I always make sure... More

I was hoping for more with this being a Frenchy's restaurant. I've been told by many people to visit Frenchy's. However, this is no more than overpriced food and tourist central! I expected the tourist hype, but for a small basket of fried grouper and a small fry, it cost approx. $16! I find this very overpriced.

Always a winner, lucky enough to go on a week day with no wait for a table outside. Service and food are always reliable. A must stop for out of town guests
