This place has the best Diablo shrimp! It’s the best appetizer in Clearwater! Visited in July and they have the coldest beer on the beach. Fast service and delicious food. For our entrees we had the scallops, shrimp, and grouper it all was delicious! Def...will be going back.More

Been going to this restaurant for over 30 years! Everything is great, fresh and the best grouper sandwich around. The wait can be long in the evening, but highly recommend!

By far the best food we had in Clearwater! First time had crab fries, and Buffalo chicken sandwich which was incredible. Second time had wings and Mexican street corn! Excellent food!

Nice place to sit outside and enjoy a meal. Not fancy but the sandwiches were good and the customer service was excellent and the seabreeze was nice after a sweltering hot day

We called in for a cocktail on the walk back to the hotel. It was 30-40 mins before they were due to close and we were given a table immediately and offered the choice to choose to sit inside or outside. The drinks menu had...plenty of choice but we went for the frozen daiquiris that came in different flavours. There was also the non alcoholic option for the kids. The staff were very friendly and helpful despite us not ordering food and just stopping in for a drink. During the hours of daylight there would be a nice view of the promenade and seaMore

We were excited to try Frenchy's but couldn't stay because daughter was getting swarmed by mosquitoes to the point we counted 20 fresh bites on the back of her legs when we made it back to the hotel. I was literally swatting them off of...her legs once she told me what was happening to her. We had to rush to find children's liquid benadryl for the swelling. The place is open air with tables under umbrellas and under the canopy. We were seated under the canopy near the ramp. Be careful! It was around 2:30 pm. The appetizer was good. We had the Cuban Egg Roll and i enjoyed it until the mosquitoes showed up. No one tried to rectify the situation. except to say, "yeah we have a mosquito problem." The waiter boxed our entrees up but we had them later. They were ok but I'm sure they would be better freshly made. We had the grouper sandwich, shrimp basket and chicken finger basket.More

Delicious food and good service. I had cajun grouper with mashed potatoes and coleslaw. Also a cup of she crab soup. All were Delicious. Husband had seafood pasta in cream sauce. Very good. Jules was our waitress and she was spot on. Never had to...ask for soda refills. Lost a star because I am allergic to peanuts and when I called in advance they said no peanut oil. But my husband noticed they had fried PBJ sandwiches on the kid menu. When Jules checked for us she found out they fried the pbj in the oil with the French fries. If I had ordered them it could have killed me!!! The person who told me no peanut oil should have been told about the fried pbj. Management fell down on this one. Note: Crabbys next door also has good food but very bad service.More

The wait averaged around 20 minutes. They have lots of tables indoors & on the patio beachside. The tee shirts are fun.

Server Lauren C was excellent. We were lucky to get a table in the covered area; most of the tables appeared to be in partial sun. Veggie burger on onion roll was delicious; loved the guacamole on the burger. However, the fresh fruit cup I...requested on the side did not have the sweetest fruit; I was expecting better fruit in Florida; I've been served much sweeter fruit in several other restaurants in the area. Also, the fresh pineapple wedge in the fruit cup contained pieces of the peel. Luckily, the veggie burger was so filling that I was OK leaving half the fruit uneaten.More
