We loved this place! Our waiter was very nice. The food was really good. And the price is reasonable. You should try this place.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2009

I stayed at the Traveler Motel, which is right next door to the restaurant.

The grouper sandwich is good.

There are FREE drink coupons at the motel for all of the Frenchy's restaurants.

“Great End to a Great Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2009

My wife and I found Frenchy's by chance and loved our experience. We spent the day boating on Clearwater Beach and wanted seafood before returning home. It's a hassle to find parking for a boat on a trailer at most restaurants so we were looking for something on the water with a dock. Frenchy's is not a waterfront restaurant but they do have a great dock with a great attendance there to help you secure the boat. The dock is free of charge for those eating at the restaurant. The atmosphere is very laid back, great for those who are coming just from the beach. The service we received was quick and friendly. We had our appetizers in a matter of moments after we ordered. The clam chowder was amazing. I'm from Boston and this is not New England style but still wonderful. I also had a great grouper sandwich and my wife enjoyed here clam strips. Only down side I could think of was that they charge extra for fries when you order a sandwich. I think fry's should always be included but they were only another 99 cents. Overall we would come back to Frenchy's when we are back in Clearwater.

“Could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2009

We ate here our last day of our Clearwater Beach vacation. We were told that the Frenchy's on the Beach was better. The atmosphere was like a cafeteria. No view. Waitressing mediocre. Food could have been better. Peel and eat shrimp could have been better. The potato salad tasted mostly like onions.
