Frenchy Cafe is well located, just behind the beach road. Parking for free (1 hour). Enough to have a good lunch. I can advice the burgers and longboard beer. Really good! Their prices are low and the staff is excellent.

For those of you that know of Frenchy's, we would all agree that it is THE PLACE to go for good beach-type food and also for the great atmosphere, but our last experience had us shaking our head. Dont get me wrong - the food and atmosphere were both spot on! Frenchy's Original Cafe is a small joint that packs... More

I've been going to Frenchy's since I was a kid. Every time I visit the area it's a must, they definitely don't have yummy grouper sandies like these in Atlanta. The gumbo, blackened grouper, steamed oysters are yummy yum.

This place is nothing fancy, off the beaten path a bit, but food was superb. I had the fish tacos which were a little dry, but tasty. The grouper sandwich is outstanding and would recommend a visit here.

Frenchy's is usually pretty good, but this place is probably the last on the list. 1 word: mediocre. If the prices were lower, I could justify it, but they are just average "beach food" prices. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad, but it's not good either. With so many options in Clearwater, just keep walking.

My wife, 11 month old and I walked around town trying different things from different places during our trip to Clearwater. We were in the mood for Fried Shrimp one night and found that Frenchy's Original Cafe had the best bang for the buck. We had their Shrimp Basket and a pair of Fish Tacos for way less than what...

Don't be put off by the exterior or the compact tables and lack of space the food is just the best. Service reflects the style of the property and works really well. Similar food items feature on the other menus in this small chain but the cracked conch fritters are just the best here as are the deep fried Oreos.... More
