Frenchy's Saltwater Cafe was excellent. One of the best dinners that we had while on vacation in Clearwater. They serve She Crab soup and it was out of this world. Everything was so fresh and our waitress Sara B was very helpful and gave us...great service. Had the oysters and they were pretty good size compared to other places that we went to. I wish we had gone earlier in the week since I would have made a second trip back . Especially for the soup.More

We stopped in for a late dinner and it did not disappoint! We were seated quickly. Social distancing was not a problem. Our server was so great! She gave us tons of recommendations. I got the baked octopus for an appetizer and OMG...it was so...good! This was one of our favorite restaurants this week.More

Was in Clearwater for a week and ate at Saltwater four times. Hit the Original once and stopped by off the hook. Was this first place we stopped on our way in and the last place we ate before we left. I am a big...fan of all the Frenchy's but Saltwater is my favorite.More

I have been looking up places to eat in areas I’ve never been to, I’ve never been to Clearwater beach. This restaurant caught me with one item that I HAD to try..... seafood pot pie! It was so good, I can’t recommend this enough. It...was fantastic. Also had the octopus for an appetizer that was really good too! Definitely worth a visitMore

Just stopped in after our first choice had no inside seating (too hot) and we are glad we did. The food was delicious and they have some great deals as well. The charcoal oysters were very tasty and my daughter had the tuna salad that...was fresh as well. A fun spot to visit for sure.More

Service was prompt and friendly. The snapper sandwich is delicious. Crab fries were also good. Portions were large, but not so big that we felt stuffed. Price was in line with most everything else in the area.

Nice atmosphere with pretty great food. Our server was a little awkward but maybe everybody is on edge with Covid stuff. The sandwiches were huge and portions of everything were enough to take home leftovers!
