Walked here from the Hilton during our lunch break. Short walk. Quickly sat and greeted by a server . It was obvious this was a grouper place. I think they offered 6 different flavors and styles of grouper. I went with the Caribbean grouper. Wow...very good!

We had heard about this place when researching our trip and gave it a try. Wasn't bad but not much of a wow factor and very busy.

My family from Minnesota & Chicago met in Orlando for a week long vacation. After hitting Dunedin and Honeymoon Island State Park, we drove down to Clearwater for dinner. We were promptly seated on the patio. Our waiter, who was one in a million, came up and greeted us. From recommendations on drinks and food to his history with the... More

Visited this 2nd location of Frenchy's. Off the beaten path, not on the water, but the food was really delicious and the wait staff exceptional!

Frenchy's is an ok place for lunch or dinner, it has a casual atmosphere and friendly service but it could have been better. Their menu has a large selection of appetizers, lunch and dinner choices.

Had dinner and was not impressed....I think frenchy's is over rated and pricey for what you get. It was very quiet the night we were there and had no atmosphere at that time of year...just before Christmas.

We read the reviews about the Grouper choices at Frenchy's and we loved our visit. It was a short walk from our hotel near the traffic circle and we will certainly go back again. The grilled jerk grouper was great as was the cajun grilled platter of grouper, scallops and shrimp. The prices were excellent and the service was top... More

The food was great! We had oysters on the half shell, conch fritters, clam chowder and the seafood trio! It was really busy when we got there, but there was no wait and service was great!

Clearwater is about 90 minutes from our Florida house and has a great beach - a great place to bring visitors. I will bring visitors here just for this restaurant. All of us had different fish dishes: mahimahi, shrimp, scallops and conch fritters. We all thought we had really ordered the best item. The staff are great, the atmosphere is... More

You will want to either get here in time for the sunset or right after. It will be bustling. We walked right in and got a bistro table for two next to the bar and had a great view of the sunsetting evening sky from there. Our waitress was top-notch. Fast, friendly and personable. I ordered the octopus appetizer and... More
