Stop in here to get our passport to paradise stamp. The mojito was delicious and service was quick. My fiancé had a top shelf margarita and it was yummy as well.

Was looking for Grouper and Frenchy's was the pick from TripAdvisor. The restaurant had good decor and great service. The food was good, but not great. Maybe I was expecting too much, it is fried fish. Glad they offered chicken tenders for those that do...More

Who can go wrong with a dozen fresh oysters for $12?!!??! And during happy hour we enjoyed $2.50 mojitos! We each had grouper sandwiches (buffalo and the grilled) that came with chips and pickles. A MUST in Clearwater!

perfunctory service to say the least...they just want to get you in and out and turn the table. smoked fish spread was tasteless, mussels in white wine special had zero flavor. Saving grace was grouper sandwich, the specialty. It was juicy but nothing that I'd...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.
