Was told about this place from someone who used to live in Clearwater. There are like 1000 Frenchy's restaurants in Clearwater so figuring out which one to eat it is a challenge. We ordered a wide variety of dishes and the food was very good.

Excellent service and food/drink recommendations from our servers today. The food and drinks were awesome. We had the Cajun Grouper Sandwich with fresh fruit, rum runner and red stripe to drink, and key lime pie for dessert. The atmosphere is very fun and upbeat. We...will definitely return!More

Went in to order take out. Definitely not a welcoming atmosphere. Female behind the bar was rude in my opinion. She took our order but didn't greet us, smile, nothing. Food was mediocre and over priced for what it was. I hate to leave poor...reviews but this one us warranted.More

Nice, low-key restaurant. Food was good. My oysters were fresh and delicious. My hubby enjoyed his sandwich. Unfortunately, I forgot my back pillow there. But, the next morning when we returned to look for it, the manager found it for us right away. (They weren't...even OPEN but he let us come in while he went to the lost and found area. And there it was!) I was impressed. It's a very busy restaurant, yet they didn't lose my pillow! Thanks!More

THe Captain from IRB Marine Rentals took us to Frenchy's by boat on our 3 hour tour. Food/service/drinks were excellent and the atmosphere was very enjoyable. We will be back next year for sure...

Always a delight to come to the Frenchy’s Saltwater Cafe. Out of all the ones in Clearwater, this one is our favorite. Best crab fries & soup. We’ve never had a bad meal here.

Had dinner here Saturday night. Place was still crowded at 9:00. Short wait for a table. Hostess was very pleasant and our server Alejandro was excellent. Great outdoor seating right on the beach. Grouper Reuben was very tasty though a bit salty. Garlic crab fries...were excellent (half order was alot). Overall a very good experience.More

Great patio, solid food, reasonably priced. We always enjoy eating here when in Clearwater. Great spot to drop in during a trip to the beach.

Great selection of food and the place had a lovely vibe. Reasonably priced and food very tasty. Beware however being offered any ‘extras’. We foolishly said yes to a crab claw as an appetiser without asking the price (it wasn’t on the menu). It ended...up doubling our bill.More

Visited around two pm, no wait for a table. Server(Lisa) was so personable and efficient! Stone crabs were amazing!

This is a most excellent fun place to have dinner. It is open air so most every table is like being outside on a patio. The Atmosphere, Food, and Service are excellent. The portions are large and priced very reasonably. Musts to eat are The...Garlic Crab Fires as an appetizer, The Tropical Chicken Salad is a Wow, and the Super Cajun Snapper sandwich-the large one is truly unbelievable.More

If you want delicious seafood while at Clearwater Beach, this is the place where you can relax in a laid back (not fancy) atmosphere and enjoy a great meal without spending a fortune.
