I have been going to this restaurant since it opened in 1981. Always great food and friendly service. Many of the staff have been with Frenchy's for more than 20 years. The signature cocktails are unique. I had a dozen oysters that were some of...More

This is not "fancy" dining but it's great dining (if you like seafood). Simple dishes but delicious, I haven't found another restaurant that serves such great quality-price value seafood. Very laid-back atmosphere, shorts and flip-flops are proper attire. My favorite is the grilled grouper sandwich,...More

Awesome little jewel on Clearwater beach. Servers are friendly and food is excellent and the prices are great! It's a fun atmosphere. We first went there with some friends that live in Florida. Loved it so much it's a yearly thing while vacationing!

This place is tiny and trying to find parking in the area can be challenging but it is so worth it! We tried the original grouper sandwich, buffalo grouper sandwich, and the fried shrimp basket. Everything was fresh and delicious. My daughter also had the...More

Every year that we are in Clearwater we go back to Frenchy's Original Cafe. It may not look great but I love the food, ambiance and memories. There are some good speicals to choose from if you are budget conscious.

We stopped here for lunch on our first afternoon in town. Frenchy's apparently has a bit of a presence in the Tampa/St. Pete/Clearwater area....and we happened to stop at the original. Parking was limited to a few metered spots out front...probably due to being a...More

Frenchys Rockaway Grill is right on the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful sunset dining if you can get a table! They don't take reservations. There's always a crowd. Not sure about happy hour, but they do have drink specials.
