Frenchy’s Original Cafe has good drink specials and good service, but not much else. The grouper sandwich didn’t taste fresh; in fact it had such a heavy fishy flavor that it was not edible. The hush puppies were drenched in oil, soaked through about 2/3rds...More

Frenchy's was a great stop for lunch for our family. Atmosphere was pleasant and the food was great from the Caesar chicken salad to the fresh seafood.

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.
