Upper deck was not available for dining on a Friday evening (there didn't seem to be a party or anything, just not open). Kids menu didn't include drinks. Server seemed unhappy to be there. Food was okay. Definitely not what I was hoping for, given the great experience we'd had at another establishment just down the beach walk.

Ate here twice in the three days I was in Clearwater Beach. Both experiences were above average. Had the Shrimp n Scallops one night, The shrimp basket the next. Both were cooked to perfection.

Frenchy’s is just across the street from Clearwater Beach and has a great Fried Grouper Sandwich. It’s a great place for drinks or a casual meal. We were there for a late dinner and were very pleased with the food and atmosphere. It had been many years since we had been there and it was good to know that nothing... More

Good place to grab lunch while looking at the beach and ocean, right across the street. Friendly, helpful staff. Food's good, too!

Stopped in for a late lunch. Sat out on the patio and enjoyed some drinks in a shady spot. I had the chicken salad which was a nice light meal for a hot day. My husband had a spicy chickens sandwich that he liked. We shared buffalo shrimp for an appetizer. Good drink specials.

Frenchy's is a well know and very busy Clearwater Beach restaurant. They have the best "She Crab Soup" of any restaurant I have eaten at. The place is always busy and that tells you something. The food is very good, and there is a lot of variety. I especially love the grouper nuggets. Our family

Had dinner here. Service was ok but not brilliant. Had to ask twice for drinks. Food was good enough- buffalo chicken sandwich was nice but portions not huge. Really it's the location that's good right on Clearwater beach front. Overall 50/50 review, not bad but not great either.

Fun place, but very hot that day as it is an open air restaurant and it was August so to be expected. They have the best grouper sandwich on the island. We sat at bar to eat and drink and our bartender was fun. She kept us in cold beer and had a great sense of humor despite how hot... More

Ate here with family on vacation in August and I honestly don't know what the hype is about. I ordered calamari which was oily and overdone with a side of garlic bread which was inedible. Location is probably the one thing this place has got going for it - very close to the beach.
