The grouper nuggets are out of this world. We went there many times and the service was always excellent.

Used to be a great, funky and fun place. Management has apparently decided to normalize it; ala McDonalds. The food isn't nearly as good as a couple of years ago. Avoid the soggy fried food, and the Shrimp. Stay with broiled or chargrilled fish. They also have staffing issues, although everyone tries to be friendly. Bottom line is that the... More

Came here with friends as soon as we got into town and as we awaited our hotel rooms being readied. What a good choice. Plenty of tasty seafood options but for me the highlight were the crab fries which did not just have old bay seasoning but also some garlic aioli and delicious crab meat. I could have eaten just...

I started off with homemade fish spread, tasty! The selection of craft beers was small but they did have that option, my choice was 3 Daughters - Lil Joe Stout, loved it. Then onto main course. Super Grouper Reuben snadwich, they nailed it. What a combo with the fish, kraut, Swiss cheese & 1000 Island. No room for desert so... More

Tourist hot spot but food was good and not overpriced. A bit of a wait even at 2 pm but worth it. Stone crab was delicious.

The seating area was small and very cramped, I felt sorry for the waitresses trying to get past people just standing by tables and not leaving room for anyone to pass. The food made it worth while

The third leg of our Cocktail Challenge was the Mango Delight at Frenchy's SaltWater Cafe...the Mrs substituted for another House Special as she's not a big fan of mango. Located closer to the motel than the other Frenchy's in the area but all within walking distance.
