We had a nice meal at frenchys. It is a nice casual place. We were greeted as we walked in, told to grab a clean place to sit. We order the sirloiner, chicken & fries, grilled cheese & shrimp basket. All were well cooked & delicious! The waitresses kept the drinks coming! The draft beer cups are "cute". I can't... More

A typical "on the beach" diner that offers excellent food and a wonderful view of the sunset. Busy, so be prepared to wait (it was worth it), with excellent food at a decent price.

Went here with our teenage grandson! The burger was the best he ever had! The grouper Rueben was wonderful! The key lime pie was outstanding!

The specialty is a grouper sandwich. Get a grouper sandwich in the variety of your choice, and you will not be disappointed.

It's so awesome to be able to walk right off the beach and grab a meal without having to pack everything up or even put some shoes on. The food and service were both excellent. Great bar selection too!

When you see the place, you're going to think...this little hole in the wall generated enough enthusiasm and revenue to spin off like 5 locations? Well, it did, and when you dig in, you'll begin to understand how it happened. This place is GOOD. Two of us had the grouper sandwich -- awesome. Another member of the group had the... More

We got hungry on the beach and Franchy's was right there. We actually heard about it from our friends in Pittsburgh who were here a year ago and they still remember how good the fish sandwiches were. We will remember too. Grilled Grouper sandwich was awesome! Perfect location and not bad service. Thank you!

The Frenchy's original grouper sandwich is the best on the beach! This Frenchy's is small but it's worth popping in for lunch, the gift shop is next door and you can get a discount with your food receipt!

The wait time was very accurate and went by quickly as we walked the beach to await our table. Our food was excellent and came out very quickly. Our waitress did not bring it, though, and we barely seen her most of the evening. No refills at all. Poor service on that end. The bill was unexpectedly higher than we... More
