Heard the fish was good, but we weren’t in the mood. Instead we had chicken tenders and a simple grilled cheese. It was great after a long day of travel. Drinks were good and...the Key Lime Pie was SPECTACULAR!

Visited 2 times in 2 days. The garlic crab fries are amazing along with the grouper original sandwich. So delish. Stone crab is in season and it was so good I forgot to take the picture until we were down to the last one.

Frenchy’s serves the best grouper sandwiches on the west coast of Florida! You can get your grouper fried, grilled, or blackened. All of them are good, as are the sides of fries, chips, or slaw. We changed it up a bit by making an appetizer...More

I haven't been to Frenchy's in ages; on a recent trip to visit family in Sarasota it was suggested that while in Dunedin/Clearwater we should stop back at Frenchy's. Were glad we did. The food was as good if not better than it was decades...More

Frenchys Rockaway Grill is right on the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful sunset dining if you can get a table! They don't take reservations. There's always a crowd. Not sure about happy hour, but they do have drink specials.
