Meeting friends (locals) for shared appetizers and cocktails during happy hour at a local favorite hangout. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Drinks and appetizers (calamari and grouper bits) were outstanding. Two cups of New England clam chowder, a huge basket of fried calamari, a basket of grouper bits, grouper tacos and a grouper sandwich came to just over $50.... More

Stopped in here during a weeklong vacation in the area due to another nearby restaurant having extraordinary long wait times. What a pleasant surprise!! We ended up coming back here the next day for a late lunch and then seeking out a second Frenchys location to enjoy!! The crab fries are a must try as is the famous crab soup.... More

Got here about 6pm. Sat at the bar for a few drinks and an appetizer for the 1hr wait for a table outside. We got sat about 7pm in time to eat and watch the sunset. Service was on the slower side, but the food variety and taste was great! I had the shrimp scampi while my wife had the... More

We saw advertising everywhere for this place and decided to try it. The Mahi was more expensive than other restaurants in the area and was a smaller serving. We also have the shimp basket and quesadilla which were also good but overpriced. Even though it was pretty crowded, we were able to get seated served and closed out in a... More

We ate at Frenchy's Saltwater Cafe on two occasions and each time had a great meal. You can eat either inside or outside in the porch area. We ate out and at first we were worried about being too warm, but it was very comfortable thanks to cold water misters and ceiling fans. They serve a great choice of beers... More

My family also split a crab fry appetizer and gator tail appitizer which my kids made short work of. My husband was very impressed with his grouper tacos and the kids enjoyed there burger and fried... More

It is so odd that this place is rated so well, if you can look past the fun colorful art in the place everything else is bad. The waitress in training had more personality and smiled more than anyone else. The food was awful and tasteless.

Refreshing seafood place right next to another great seafood restaurant Cooters. Our waiter was top notch and kept the glasses filled. My kids don't appreciate seafood yet, but they did enjoy the kid's meals at Frenchy's. That made it nice for me to enjoy the reasonably priced raw oysters followed with a delicious combo platter. 6 of us ate for... More
