Had a nice lunch here, the waitress was very friendly, the snowcrab fries were delicious. We sat out on the deck with the gift shop next door full of all sort of trinkets.

The restaurant is on a non-descript parking lot facing a strip mall, where cars pull in directly to tables. The menu had a lot to choose from and was very reasonably priced. The scallops were not gritty and grilled well, but the shrimp was not...More

A favorite of locals and tourists: This Frenchy's (one of 5) is on the beautiful north end of Clearwater Beach. You can dine inside or out, in any clothing (lots of bathing suits and bare feet here); full bar; loud happy music (sometimes live bands);...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.
