“Good Grouper”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Had a good grouper from this local eatery.

Got the original. I am not a fried food person but it was very good.

Would return again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

I don't have to eat anything else here except the beer-battered shrimp sandwich to know how how good the food is here...OMG...That was quite possibly one of the best sandwiches I have ever had in my life!!!...

“Cool Little Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

The food was good. I had the fish tacos and the rice and beans. Everything was tasty! The fish tacos had fried fish though (usually the fish isn't fried). The portions are small though. This particular Frenchy's is very small and compact. The waitress we had was very friendly and helpful. This is a place you would want to go with friends to just eat, drink, and have a good time.

“Almost everything is fried...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Many locals swear by their grouper sandwich, but I am just not a fried seafood person. Tucked back away from the beach in a small space, this is not where you go for variety. The drink menu is limited (i.e. for my tourist friends they did not have a pina colada). If you want a fried shrimp basket you will be happy here. if you want blackened or a great seafood salad, this is not your place.

“Way over rated”

Service was fine but food was only fair and portions were small. I would not go back. Other places in the area are better.
