Has a daily special (drink and dinner) that are both super cheap, yet good. Thursday's drink was Mai Tai ($3.95); Friday's dinner was fried shrimp ($8.95). Waitstaff was fun and attentive.

We always have a good time at Frenchy's. The food is good, not too expensive and the service is friendly and efficient. It's beach/bar food but it's always fresh and delicious. Plus they have beer/drink specials to enjoy every day.

Great food, friendly waitstaff. It's a comfortable bar atmosphere. I had the Mahi Mahi delicious! And my fiancé had the seafood platter.

This bar is in a perfect location on the beach. It offers good food and great drinks. Very good spot to check out the sunset with a cool drink. Must check out if you're in the beach area.

Everytime I come to Clearwater Beach, I eat at this Frenchy's location. It's right on the beach and the atmosphere is great. They're famous for their grouper sandwiches, but the scallop sandwich is even better in my opinion. That sandwich paired with their slaw and...More

Grand kids loved the crab legs. Wife got the Grouper sandwich. She said the fish was very dry and bland. Compared it to Mcdonolds fish sandwich. I got the Greek salad with grilled chicken. The salad comes with a scoop of potato salad as a...More

Monday's and Tuesday's at Saltwater Cafe on Mandalay Ave (N. beach). AYCE snow crab and beer battered flounder for $27.95. Don't know about steamed vs boiled. Service is great and you'll never wait for the next round.
