Great food, great service and great view. Reasonably priced. Started off with rum runners and frozen Pina coladas from the walk up bar as there was a short wait. Dinner for six on the patio as the sunset, couldn’t beat the view. Appetizers - crabby...fries and oysters. Crabby fries were okay, probably would not get again, would try something else. Fries are fries. Mix of dinners in the group, everything was great. Personally loved the shrimp tacos, a little spicier than expected but balanced with fresh mango. Waiter was excellent. Would recommend for a casual dinner with a view.More

We stayed on the beach for a week and this was the best meal. The haystack onions are great. If you come here a must try is the rockaway chicken. Wow is it good.

Fresh seafood! The fried shrimp batter was so delicious. Very fast service and friendly staff. I can tell why it is very popular! Will be back in the future.

The service was fast and everyone was friendly, but the food just wasn’t good. The grouper wasn’t fresh like they advertise. I wouldn’t return.

This little hidden gem is so good! The service is wonderful and felt like I was family! You get great customer service, tasty food in a clean and friendly environment. The prices are great for the quality and quantity of food. They definitely cook and...serve their food with love. We will be back soon!More

Here for a girlfriend weekend and took the trolley from our hotel to the area below the pier. Glad we decided to grab some snacks at Frenchy's. The food and service was good, our waiter,Brandon S , was attentive and we enjoyed the atmosphere.

The minute we sat down (no food on the table; not feeding the birds) a bird attacked my 1yo grand daughter and scratched her! Server was standing right there, he dropped his tray and the table next to us (also no food on the table)...left. The server wasn’t in the least concerned, didn’t offer a napkin bc she was slightly bleeding nothing he actually walked away. Food was “ok” not worth the wait. They need a sign warning about the birds attacking unprovoked or better yet follow along with the other local restaurants and put in place a way they cannot fly through to the tables. Service was very spotty, he disappeared a lot. Bar was inconsistent as well. Don’t waste your time.More

Frenchy’s Rockaway has been our favorite place for 20 years. I proposed to my husband there 13 years ago we love it so much. This visit was a family dinner and did not disappoint. The food was amazing as usual. I have dreams of the...she-crab soup. The service was great and the band was entertaining. Another wonderful family dinner.More

Really fun environment and good food, but some portions are very small. Pay attention to the prices because that will often show you how much food you get. I had the beach crab rangoon and it was one of the best i've had for sure...just not enough food for a main dish. Overall great!More

Sitting outside there are two patio areas, one where you can put your feet in the sand and that is the one closest to the beach, the other is directly behind that one and it's a normal patio not in the sand. Service is quick...and good and that's it for the positives. Frenchy, your fried shrimp is awful! You need to start over with a completely new batter because this is beyond crunchy. It's hard as a rock and they have no taste! It was the worst fried shrimp I've ever had, and I have fried shrimp a lot. Also no fault of their own but Clearwater water is awful, order bottled water if you want decent water to drink. I would pass on this place and go next door to the Palm Pavillion!More

This place is a must for an evening to see the amazing sunset over the water. Literally on the beach with patio seating options. Great fish tacos and amazing shrimp with excellent service. Will highly recommend. 10/10.

We do not take reservations but we constantly seat very large parties quickly and easily. Since we are right off the beach your beach attire is fine. See you soon!

No. When you get there they take your name and you have three mins to get up to stand when called.
