Everyone who learned I was going to Clearwater Beach advised me I had to eat at Frenchy's. With three locations available on Clearwater Beach, you're never too far from a Frenchy's. Grouper and other seafood available fresh. Cocktails and shade a welcome reprieve.

Not bad. I sat at the bar. There was a wait for the patio. I ate the grouper bite basket. It was like eating scraps of fish. Rather have a big piece of fish since FL is known for fishing. Frys not done. Soggy. I...More

We had the hamburger, Grouper basket and chicken sandwich and enjoyed all of them. We sat outside and it was relaxing and enjoyable. Staff was friendly and attentive. Would go again for sure.

It is really good cafe in which you can taste good seafood lunch or enjoy taking cup of coffee near the clear water beach ( minutes walking to beach )

I absolutely LOVE this lil spot! We have been a few times, and get the crab-topped fries every time as a starter! You will not get fresher seafood than Frenchy's. and it is a quick walk from Pier 60, so an excellent location.

My girlfriend and I stopped in for lunch. We had the conch fritters, pork tacos, and a pub burger. Everything was excellent, especially with a nice Kona on draft.

Crab fries are OMG delicious! The Frozen rum runner was the best we had all week. We only wish we had found Frenchys earlier in the week rather than our last night at the beach. The white sangria was really refreshing too w/ just a...More

Excellent seafood at reasonable prices. The grouper nuggets were crunchy and wholesome. The almond crusted snapper was excellent on a bed of gourmet salad. Good location. Great service. Great ambience.

In my opinion the food is the best here of all the Frenchy's. Not sure why.. but the Greek octopus is pretty amazing and the fish tacos are also right up there.

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.
