W e had dined at Frenchy's Rockaway Grill earlier in the week, so I expected this location would also have a gluten free menu. They did not, and when I asked my server she struggled with recommending options. I ended up having the grilled grouper with coconut rice and cole slaw, which is the same meal I had at the... More

I had the fried grouper sandwich. It was pretty good. Kinda thin and lots of breading. Wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be. Service was fast and friendly.

Best grouper sandwich around! The grouper nuggets are a must with Frenchy's hot sauce or mix them in a salad! Conch fritters are a must try. Atmosphere is fun in the sun! Once you eat at Frenchy's, you'll be back!

Frenchy's is a great place to have dinner. We are outside and really enjoyed the food. Anything GROUPER is a must in the area. We will go back for sure. The Mountain Shine is a great drink.

Visited with hubby and 7yo daughter for dinner. Short wait and sat outside in the back, which was much calmer than the front.Dinner was good for my 7yo who ordered the cheeseburger kids meal. Our appetizers of grouper nuggets and crab fries was tasty. That's where the "good" turned quickly to "bad". Our orders of Almond encrusted Snapper over salad... More

I have eaten at 3 of the 4 Frenchy's establishments and I've never been disappointed. This was no exception. Of course it was busy, but service was still good and food came out quickly and was exactly as delicious as you'd hope it would be.

Had the grilled, stuffed avocado appetizer and should have let that be the whole meal. It was fabulous. Stuffed with raw seasoned tuna on a bed of seaweed and rice. But because I was sharing it with another person, I ordered the grilled grouper with fresh vegies and coleslaw. It was wonderful also,but I would go back just for the... More

I'm sure everyone says this but definitely have the grouper sandwich. It was EXCELLENT! You need to plan to go early because it is a bit of a wait, we waited at least 30-60 minutes both times. Bring your sunglasses - -if you sit outside its bright. If you go to the tourist information center they will give you a... More

Absolutely delicious. My family and I had great food and a wonderful time here. We devoured the garlic crab fries. Highly recommend the fries. Grouper sandwiches were awesome. Our family highly recommend Frenchy's.
