“Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Went to the original Frenchy's and realized how small the menu was. Walked to blocks down the road and found this gem. The food was fantastic. Service was what you would expect for a beachside restaurant. The selection of Grouper was awesome. Definitely recommend a trip here for an occasion.

“Great Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

At the beach so of course wanted Seafood - locals recommend. This is off the main drag - but close and the food is great! Can't wait to go back.

“Try the She-Crab Soup! Yum!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you like crab meat, you will absolutely love the She-Crab Soup! We've driven an hour and a half to have it! But be careful - there are four Frenchy's locations on Clearwater Beach and they don't all have the same menu items! They all have the best grouper sandwiches ever. If you'd like to have a conversation, don't go to the Frenchy's on the North Beach, near the Palm Pavilion. It is so incredibly noisy there that you can't talk to the person next to you. By the same token, if that's the easiest location for you to get to, plug your ears and enjoy the food! This location also has She Crab Soup but we like the Saltwater Cafe best.

“Late Night Dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Sunday night dinner for four at Frenchy's - no wait, very loud and average food. Walked over from the nearby Hilton at 7 PM. Outdoor seating was full, but we opted for indoor seating - booth away from the bar. Restaurant was crowded, but service was fast. Nothing exemplary here, portions were small. Grilled Grouper sandwich with veggie medley was the best choice of 3 adult entrees. Other choices included a shrimp scampi - shrimp had a prior frozen consistency and a grilled shrimp salad - shrimp were better here. Would try some place different next time.
