Good Food

I hadn't been to this restaurant in a really long time. Their crabby shrimp sandwich is really good, but I can't say much about anything else. The place is really crowded, sort of run down and much of a bar scene. I enjoyed it, but had forgotten that about that fact and now with three kids, not... read more

We popped in today for an early dinner with friends; all 13 of us. Tory was the best waitress we have had in years. She was attentive, always refilled our drinks, was friendly, and made our visit quick. The food came out so fast and was great.

This place is tiny and trying to find parking in the area can be challenging but it is so worth it! We tried the original grouper sandwich, buffalo grouper sandwich, and the fried shrimp basket. Everything was fresh and delicious. My daughter also had the key lime pie, which I usually hate... It was super good! Great service, will come... More

Been here dozens of times and have never been disappointed..Sometimes with friends sometimes on business and solo. My favorite Frenchy's location. Good cold beer, gulf caught seafood, my favorite is the grouper cheeks. I also enjoy their conch salad. Casual atmosphere. Service is friendly. A relaxed place to grab a bite of Florida Fresh Seafood. Will continue to return.

Every year that we are in Clearwater we go back to Frenchy's Original Cafe. It may not look great but I love the food, ambiance and memories. There are some good speicals to choose from if you are budget conscious.

This small cafe serves fresh seafood, I have been here twice during our Clearwater vacation. I had steamed shrimp and French fries topped with crab meat which was off the chain, I encourage everybody to try this, I ate their fried shrimp basket on our last night in Clearwater, their shrimp is unbelievable, fresh and just cooked right. I am... More

We stopped here for lunch on our first afternoon in town. Frenchy's apparently has a bit of a presence in the Tampa/St. Pete/Clearwater area....and we happened to stop at the original. Parking was limited to a few metered spots out front...probably due to being a block from the beach. Three of us ordered the Monday burger special, one had chic... More

My wife, daughter and I recently traveled to Clearwater, Florida. We love the white sandy beaches, Pier 60 activities and good food! We absolutely loved eating at Frenchy's Original Cafe. Don't be fooled when you see this place. It is a little hole in the wall, but aren't those the best places to eat anyway? They are known for the... More

Frenchy's Original Cafe is our "go-to" when visiting Clearwater, Florida. We love the local, non-touristy feel of the original cafe and it's situation right next to a quaint and unique gift shop. We love going on Taco Tuesday; their Shrimp tacos rock! The Grouper Sandwich is always a great choice and a cup of Gumbo hits the spot.
