I have never had grouper before and was told it very good at Frenchy's. It was and I will be back. Had a nice beach feel to the place and good service for how busy they were.

Food was Great! First time to Clearwater Florida. Everyone we talked to said to go to Frenchy's! We had a party of 15, spent the day at the beach and walked over for lunch.

Grouper sandwiches are amazing. I got the grilled grouper sandwich it was awesome. Also enjoyed the oysters. It's a pretty quick meal too. The service was good. Now I wanna go to all the Frenchy's. Definitely recommend and it's budget friendly.

The Saltwater Cafe is excellent. We had large, meaty oysters, the grouper and buffalo chicken sandwiches that were all done to perfection. The staff was engaging and allowed you to chill and enjoy your time.

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.
