“"Fried" Grouper sandwich disappointing!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

The thin batter lacked any crisp factor. The sandwich fell short of our expectations, especially since we ordered the super grouper sandwich. You would expect the fish to be well outside of the bun so you can break off and nibble the edges before picking up the bun. Lesson learned.
However, all was not lost! The tropical shrimp tacos with coleslaw and fresh mango chunks---outstanding. Would order them again tomorrow. Service was excellent, from a young man named Keyser.

“Not all that!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

I know people rave about Frenchy's but I did not even eat my meal. The grouper was over cooked and fishy. It was so hot , no fans or air but my son loved his loaded chicken. The band was awful and like 1970's music. We had six in our party and were given a table for three.....bad and the service was no better.

“Loved this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

This is the perfect place to eat while staying at the beach. It's casual, fun atmosphere allows you to avoid having to get dressed up. The food and service was WONDERFUL! They had the best crab cakes I ever had. Our server was so helpful and patient and went the extra mile for us.

A great restaurant with awesome food and great wait staff! They were able to accommodate our large party. It's very reasonably priced with an extensive menu.

“Awesome food by the beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

This restaurant was great, from the food, to the drinks, to the waiters, to the atmosphere, to the view! We had the calamari, stuffed grouper and the grouper santini, and it was all delicious. Eat it there because it's so fresh and tasty!!!It is about $18/main course, and its worth it.
