    Great beach view, loud atmosphere but made up for by the live music, The Caribbean Jerk grouper sandwich is great and NOT spicy at all despite the menu saying it is. Start with grouper egg rolls

    Fantastic view at sunset, service was impeccable! Started w/the conch fritters, the Grouper sandwich, the jerk shrimp, blackened shrimp all fantastic and definitely the best Grouper in Clearwater!
  • Aaron W.
    Jerk Grouper was excellent as was the craft beer selection. Steamed oysters were pretty damn good too!! Mix some of their habanero hot sauce in the butter and that's all you need!!

    The best part of my experience tonight- the view.😥- that I waited 45 minutes for. Bartenders are inexperienced, all new waiters seemed disinterested, and no fault to the restaurant, crying children

    Favorite place in Clearwater! White sangria is awesome on a hot day and the buffalo chicken sandwich is delicious (and messy). She crab soup is excellent but rich and better served on a cold day.

    Good food great atmosphere but I can't see how your ranked #1 in Clearwater for seafood yet you don't have crab legs . Had to settle for coconut shrimp but was extremely disappointed with no crab legs

    The food and servers were great. It's a great atmosphere and its on the beach. I loved their coconut shrimp! The drinks were good and prices aren't too bad. I would definitely go again !

    I love conch fritters so this was a must stop when I saw it on the menu. Caribbean Jerk Grouper sandwich pretty good but wasn't spicy at all.

    Some of the best seafood on Clearwater Beach with a deck overlooking the water, a respectable selection of draft beers and live music at night. (The Short List: Top 5 beach bars.) Read more

    Have a drink and enjoy the beach. Great food too! But, this is one of those places you dream about looking out over the beach while you hold a nice cold refreshment in your hand.

    MY FAVORITE!!! Frenchy's Rockaway Grill, Clearwater Beach, FL - Hangin' on the deck on the beach, nice breeze, big margaritta and pan fried grouper, DEF ordering key lime pie for dessert!!! :)~

    Grab a seat at the beach bar for the best sunset view. Eat something with grouper (sandwich, salad, etc.) and have the beer of the month ($2.50) or a rum runner ($5).

    My favorite place to have lunch while at the beach. Ask for a seat outside for the amazing view and hit up the awesome bartenders while you are waiting to be seated.

    You don't even have to put on clothes :) (swimsuits welcome). Grouper nuggets and white sangria (cinnamon tops it off) are both great. Great atmosphere and beautiful sunsets.

    Try the Grouper Sandwich - Cajun Grouper Sandwich on an onion bun with tartar sauce, lettuce and tomato. Perfection! A must-have if you're visiting Clearwater Beach.

    I used to order the seafood ceviche for my entrée... No longer as it has barely any seafood and mostly cabbage. The price is not justified 😩

    Cajun scallops are awesome. They have excellent steamed oysters, well-priced drinks and the perfect view of the gulf.

    This is the best Frenchy's of all in Clearwater (there's about 3). Calamari is fresh and not greasy. The Cajun Grouper sandwich was really good! Cheap beers.

    Great food, great service, great setting. For such a commercial looking outfit, I was presently surprised. Sit on the front deck and enjoy the view!

    One of the best rum runners on the beach! Plus, the sweet potato fries are to die for--thanks to the sweet butter dip you get with them. Yum.

    Live music, beach views, quick bar staff, this place has it all. Don't expect to walk in and sit down though. No reservations, first come first serve.

    Among the few ok comments about this place. The wait is the longest on weekends and not worth it. Way too crowded with no fancy beers and not the strongest of cocktails.

    Great food & mixed drinks. Across the street from the beach and a good bar scene. I'd highly recommend!

    Definitely catch the sunset at Frenchy's beach location. Make sure to get there extra early though because everyone else wants to see it too.

    I am a total food snob...just saying! The She Crab Soup is flipping amazing! Seriously. Didn't need to doctor it up at all. So yummy.

    Great food and awesome view! We used to live nearby and frequently ate here. I love many items but the fish tacos are my current favorite.

    The she crab soup was good and so is Cali fish tacos. The grouper sandwich and nuggets and coconut shrimp are just okay

    Great monthly specials. Subscribe to their monthly Grouper Gazette (email newsletter). My favorite spot on Clearwater Beach!

    The crab cakes were great! Bloody Mary's were bland, Tabasco, pepper & salt fixed that. Great atmosphere and the view is amazing!

    Lots of parking nearby but it's coin-operated, bring your dollar coins and quarters or look for the blue flag to make change after you arrive.

    I wish I could comment on the food or service but we tried to come 2x in the same week and both times it was a 2 hour wait. So they must be doing something right. Maybe next time.

    Awesome place. Great rum runners. If you sit outside make sure the umbrellas are up so the birds leave you alone.

    Frenchy's is all about a good time with friends, overlooking the beautiful Clearwater beach and the famous Grouper Sandwich -- a must-eat in Clearwater!

    I was so excited to bring my family in that was visiting from Jacksonville to Frenchy's.It was short lived when the host and hostess gave me a horrible attitude and we ended up waiting nearly 2 hours.

    All season long, catch a Monday Night Football game on the jumbo screen (we're talking 50 ft. here!) on the deck and enjoy the monthly beer specials

    Eat on the patio overlooking the beach. Sunsets are always beautiful. She crab soup and grouper sandwich never disappoint.
