Good

Came here a few times. Service is good, but it is busy so be prepared to wait. Cracked Conch was delicious as was the Cubano sandwich. Prices are pretty reasonable for a touristy spot. They have a half dozen or so parking spaces, otherwise street parking is readily available.

The cook told me absurd, rude, inappropriate things about the wait staff while I was dining. I thought the servers were nice but the thought of having someone that rude cook my food made me sick. I ordered a shrimp basket and never touched it.I don't know. Maybe good help is hard to find. Maybe we should hire more foreign... More

Cheap in comparison to the nearby places. A little off the main beachfront but worth the short stroll. Good basic food in similar surroundings. Great service we received.

Stopped by for a later lunch/early dinner. Greated immediately upon walking in and shown right to a table by a friendly waiter who brought an ice water and was very attentive. Of course, had to have the buffalo grouper -- the best! Had the frozen mango special of the day and a local brew --served ice cold. Can't beat the... More

Yes, there is a wait, but with a place that has such good food, well worth it. We ordered a variety of appetizers, salads and main courses. All were fresh, well cooked and seasoned perfectly. Everything arrived so promptly for such a busy place. Would go there again every time we are in that area. And to top it off,... More

We had dinner with a family of four on Saturday night in August. We walked in at around 6:15pm and didn't have to wait for a table. The place is small and the tables are packed tight, but it's all very fun and casual and we felt comfortable. Frency's feels like it's been there forever, and it kind of has... More

Drove in from MA with friends who are well acquainted w/ this place. 2 tired adults and 2 13 yr olds were seated and served quickly. 3 of us had the grouper sandwiches and one had buffalo chicken sandwich. Grouper was the way to go. I'm a new fish eater and found it awesome!
