Fresh and firm

All the meals are perfect and delicious. They are all fresh. Not so baby friendly because they don't have high chair. Prices are acceptable and daily offers are very good.

After an hour of traffic, parking six blocks away, and an hour 10 min wait at Frenchys rock away, we tried this place. Sat at the bar. Bartender was nice, despite the usual stress from obnoxious bar clientele. A bit rusty/crusty, bathrooms and dining area are sort of roadhouse. No oysters here, what we really drove to Clearwater for. No... More

Best grouper sandwich we had all week. Can't get the she crab soup at this location. It's small but great for a quick lunch.

Had guests in from LI who wanted to see Clearwater Beach and the new development. Did a driving tour of the beach area including Sand Key and then went for lunch at Frenchy's original. We like this much better than the Rockaway as it seems to have more character. The grouper sandwiches are to die for. Always fresh and firm,... More

The grouper sandwich was very good. The wait staff was ok but seemed as if they wanted to get cleaned up and closed for the night. Felt rushed to finish our dinner.

Frenchy's was my first "dining" experience on Clearwater Beach in 1994. The location and parking are great and the atmosphere is what I call laid-back beach rat. Hey, fried beach food at a reasonable price. I have no complaints apart from the regular drunk at the bar who thinks he's hilarious. Our server was spot on and the food came... More

Good place to eat when on a budget. Their buffalo chicken sandwich and their beer battered grouper sandwich are to die for. Very friendly staff and daily drink specials.
