“Never disappoints!”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

This is our "go-to" restaurant when company is in town! The food is consistently good. Can be noisy but their fish is so delicious we try to just ignore it and enjoy the atmosphere! We keep saying we need to try different restaurants in the area and have only found a handful that are consistently good - Frenchy's is one of those!

“FANTASTIC Food and Service”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

If you are planning on visiting Clearwater Beach area, do yourself a favor and plan on great food at one of the 4 Frenchy's locations. During this visit, I went to Rockaway Grill and Saltwater Cafe locations. I especially enjoyed the Grouper sandwich for lunch and had 2 Lbs of fresh stone crabs for dinner another day. This is a local's favorite hangout.

“Yummm ! Great atmosphere.”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

Okay so if you decide to go to clearwater beach florida ever you have to go to French's. I have been several times and still enjoy every bit of it. I normally go during spring break time when I am on vacation. Make sure that if you go towards the end of March during spring break time that you are willing to fight for a parking spot because the lot fills up quickly! There may be a line too, but that just shows how good it is. The coconut shrimp is by far the best I have ever had and the conch fritters are out of this world! The price for the food is typical for a Florida restaurant, not cheap but not expensive. The best part of all though is the fact that it's right on the beach! Sitting on the back patio and looking out to the ocean is beautiful. Live bands and many people make this place have a great atmosphere, I totally recommend going here.

“Very Good Food, Service, Atmosphere...Small Portions”
Reviewed November 16, 2011

This place offers a nice tropical atmosphere with decent drinks and reasonable prices. All of the seafood is touted as being fresh.

The Grouper Dinner was very good. I think it was 'Grouper Oscar'. The portion was pretty small, though. I could have enjoyed twice the amount. But then again, it was only $17. As for the Conch Fritters, they were the total real deal...excellent! I've been to the Islands and Keys many times. And these had the most conch I've ever seen in any fritters I've tried. The bad thing is, there were only 5 fritters (about like ping-pong ball size) to the order for $7.

I would not hesitate to return, so long as I wasn't really hungry or wanting to order 'doubles'.
