We had some fish and burgers, for a quick meal and it was really delicious and the prices were pretty reasonable.

Frenchy's will not disappoint. I had the steamed crab legs with fried corn on the cob and it was excellent - daughter had the Mahi-Mahi and said it was very good, granddaughter had burger and enjoyed it as well. One of the Frenchy locations is a must stop when in Clearwater Beach. Laid back atmosphere, great waitress, good food and... More

This seafood was so fresh we could have named it!! We are pretty sure this food was scooped out of the ocean and placed on our plates! The snow crab legs and shrimp were amazing. The spicy corn on the cob and gator were excellent as well! You cannot go wrong with a dinner or lunch here!!

The grouper nuggets were great as was the tarter sauce. The rest was so so at best, including the "house special" sangria and the baked stuffed grouper, it was so fishy tasting I couldn't eat it and was sick the rest of the night.

The restaurant is on a non-descript parking lot facing a strip mall, where cars pull in directly to tables. The menu had a lot to choose from and was very reasonably priced. The scallops were not gritty and grilled well, but the shrimp was not local (not the Royal red type). The buffalo shrimp appetizer was on the smaller side.... More

A favorite of locals and tourists: This Frenchy's (one of 5) is on the beautiful north end of Clearwater Beach. You can dine inside or out, in any clothing (lots of bathing suits and bare feet here); full bar; loud happy music (sometimes live bands); absolutely the freshest seafood anywhere. They are famous for their grouper sandwiches which are caught... More

We had lunch here. I highly recommend the octopus and the grilled avocados filled with tuna poke. Chicken salad was just ok but the portion side of the pita sandwich was huge and came with fruit salad and banana bread. Would go back. Fun and funky atmosphere.

Tried octopus for the first time, it was surprisingly very tasty. Atmosphere was very nice and beachy and the servers were friendly. My favorite frenchys out of all of them.

One of my favorite spots in the Clearwater beach area. The food is moderately priced and of good quality. Services are good even when the customer traffic is heavy. My favorite is the She-Crab Soup. Weather hot or cold this soup is the bomb. Don't forget to use a bit of Frenchys hot sauce to top this soup off. The... More

Went there for a late lunch, early dinner. They were fairly crowded due to boat races just getting done. We got a table right away. Our server was a bit slow but the food made up for it.
