Ate here the first night of our vacation as it was very close to our hotel. Neat atmosphere dining outside on the busy roadway across from the beach. Bacon wrapped scallops were very skimpy and the lobster mac my daughter ate had a very odd taste to it. Shrimp tacos, crab soup and other items my... read more

Went with couples. Food was pretty good. Not alot to choose from. Atmosphere is lacking-unless you're there to drink, drink, drink. Service was "ok". Not the cleanest...

Gave our name at the desk and told a 25-30 minute wait. While waiting, a staff member took us and said we could have a table on the outside they had just wiped from the rain. We sat, and were then told by the hostess and I quote -

The food was excellent. I ordered the fresh grouper and was very pleased. We started on the outdoor patio but with the high winds from a storm coming in we ended up inside. The waiter was very attentive and accommodating. I will definitely return here the next time I'm in Clearwater.

Frenchy's is off the main area and is just basically a hole in the wall but the food and service was amazing. We had the crab garlic fries which were great, also had the shrimp basket which had a lot of food. Have to say our waitress Stephanie was top notch and Sissy in the gift shop was very helpful....

We enjoyed this restaurant , got seated quickly on the patio. Fun atmosphere. The live music was ok. The people watching on the beach walk was very entertaining :) Service was wonderful and our waitress was very personable. Food and drinks were great EXCEPT the fries. These came to the table not fully cooked and tasted like prepackaged frozen fries.... More

The restaurant is literally right on the beach. We went on two seperate occasions, once for lunch and once for dinner. The drinks are very good and the menu is your typical on the beach menu. We had the fried grouper sandwich for lunch, it was moist and very good. We had fried seafood platter which was also very good.... More
