Very casual dining with great appetizer of the smoked fish dip and blue margaritas, but the rest of the meal was kind of a let down after hearing how good it was.

Cute spot. Everything was fresh and hot. Beer was nice and cold. The Grouper and Shrimp had good flavor. Laid back place that is a local legend. Would repeat.

We were on a tee shirt hunt, so we stopped in in the late afternoon for a drink. Service at the bar was friendly and the drinks were good, and reasonably priced considering the area. This is a very small restaurant. Make sure you put...More

Had the grouper tacos and they were great! Next time I will do the grouper sandwich! Clam Chowder was really good!

The fried grouper sandwich was as good as it gets. It was hot and delicious. Well worth the wait for the table. The grilled grouper sandwich was delicious also. Definitely add hushpuppies to your order. They were a great compliment to the grouper.

First time to the Original Cafe and we quite enjoyed our visit. Retro/diner style place is a little crowded but the food was very good. I loved my She Crab Soup, it is for sure a artery clogger but wow is it creamy and tasty....More

In our quest for the Holy Grail (a free t-shirt-haha) we hit our second of four Frenchy's location and sat at the bar and grabbed two Island Mojitos. This is the Original Frenchy's, but smaller, clean and near the beach. Our bartender, Mikaela, knew our...More

Over-rated. Pushy waitress. Barely sat down before being pushed to order. Cold fries. Deep fried food that only tastes good if you’re drinking.

I love this location. Great food and drink specials. The bartender working there was super friendly. I wish I would have caught her name. I think it was last Tuesday. Margarita's were on special. She was awesome.

If you're looking for a quick lunch or dinner featuring fried seafood, this is the place. Shecrab soup was excellent as were the grouper cheeks and grouper sandwich. Would like to have tried the Greek steamed shrimp as they looked wonderful, but we had too...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.
