    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!!

    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!

    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.

    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 !

    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 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.

    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.

    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

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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).
  • Kimberly D.
    Food is good BUT if you're looking for the Frenchy's that the locals flock to - this isn't it. This is the touristy Frenchy's that fills up quickly. South Beach Frenchy's is much more authentic 👌🏼
