Not many places right on the beach like this place and it has live music every night which are the reasons we were drawn to it but the food was bad and we had to send 1 dish back.....bbq ribs that came out completely cold. All the other dishes were very basic and you could do better at home!

Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill is right on the beach and is a staple with the locals known for the laid back atmosphere. One of the standout menu items is the She-Crab soup. It is very flavorful and has large chunks of crab...delicious! The other is the Super Grouper sandwich that can be fried, grilled or blackend. It's extremely fresh. There are also other items for the non-seafood fans that were just as tasty! @cornholeonwater- I included a picture at CornholeOnWater.net

Frenchy's had a fun atmosphere friendly wait staff and really good food. We were only in the area for 10 days but went there 3 times during our trip. We will be going back there for sure next year!

Beautiful scenery and great waiter but the food was terrible. The grilled grouper was so over cooked and dry with no flavor. They serve it with tasteless white rice. The manager apologized and offered to give me a new piece after sitting there 30 min. I said no but they never offered to compensate by maybe even throwing in my appetizer or taking half off. The place was so much better years ago. Will not return.

We ate here on a Friday night at sunset. We were told the wait would be 45-60 minutes. It really only took 20 minutes. We were seated on the patio at the rail. We had the perfect seat for sunset! The drinks were delicious. They are famous for their grouper. My husband liked it! I saw a huge salad delivered to another table and it looked delicious! Can't beat the atmosphere on the beach or the food! I'm not sure of our servers name, but she was super friendly.
