This place came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. We loved the outdoor seating and atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly and the food was delicious. Shrimp tacos and the grouper sandwich highlighted our lunch.

Offers beer specials, great menu with great prices. The atmosphere here is very welcoming. I had their seafood pot pie. Excellent. Great friendly and efficient staff. I would wait in line for this place.

On our first visit to Frenchy's Saltwater Café we were well pleased. The various seafood options proved to be very enjoyable, the she-crab chowder is certainly worth a try. The service is also very good. A very informal setting.

We shared the super grouper and red snapper; blackened sandwich. Both were superb. We also shared the ceviche and didn't care for the 5 sweet potato chips that came with it. They need to serve some tortilla chips or saltines. Very yummy though.

Monday's and Tuesday's at Saltwater Cafe on Mandalay Ave (N. beach). AYCE snow crab and beer battered flounder for $27.95. Don't know about steamed vs boiled. Service is great and you'll never wait for the next round.
