She crab soup was literally the best I've ever had!! The stone crab claws, grouper sandwich, and crab fries were also great!!! Service was great as well.

Great grouper sandwich, oysters and clams and THE best coleslaw I’ve ever eaten…. little diced pineapple chunks add the perfect sweetness. I’d go back just for the slaw!!

A landmark restaurant in downtown Clearwater Beach that is a must visit for first timers just so you can say you went to Frenchy's Original Cafe. Visit this place and soak up the local ambiance. Have a drink and enjoy the food.

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.
