Me and my daughter visited 11 June. I had raw oysters and the snapper po boy. Both were delicious. It was pouring down rain so we ate inside. Great place and very quaint!

This place was recommended by a local while at a conference. I had the BBQ Bacon Wrapped Scallops and Garlic Crab Fries, my husband had the Shrimp basket. Everything was cooked to perfection Andrew will be back before the week is over!

My family and I recently visited Frenchys original because of all the advertisements we saw. We should have stayed away. The employees were rude as soon as we got there. Obviously we had never been there and didn't know we had to sign a clipboard...More

I traveled solo and sat at the bar. I received fast and friendly service. The grouper is excellent! It is a busy place, so be prepared to wait for a table.

No visit to Clearwater Beach is complete without a visit to Frenchy's Original Cafe. My personal favorite is the seafood gumbo and the fried grouper cheeks. The cafe has recently undergone a makeover. It looks the same but it is still the same great old...More

We've been to this place off and on now for many years. While we love it for sentimental reasons - the food and service are excellent. There is no other place on the face of the planet that can serve a grouper burger like Frenchy's....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.
