My Favorite Seafood Restaurant – This has always been my favorite Seafood Restaurant. They started with just one location, then as their popularity grew, they expanded adding more locations. I just wish they would add a Tampa restaurant as I can not always get to Clearwater Beach.
The dress and atmosphere are casual. The waterfront location is a larger and dressier location.
Be prepared to wait as it is a favorite for locals, sailors & tourist. The wait is worth it as the food is always great. Every time we take friends it becomes one of their favorites as well! They have offerings for non seafood lovers as well.
The smoked fish spread & grouper sandwich are the best around. I do not believe they take reservations. The price is reasonable. They provide great customer service. You can find pictures of local sailors on the walls.
It is family friendly, can be a little loud, but loads of fun! Try to avoid during tourist season. Relax & have a cocktail while you wait for your table. Remember when at the beach, you can't be in a hurry!
Frenchys with the african-american male door guy, who has teethe so yellow, when he shows them, they slow traffic – I am not a local of Clearwater Beach. I was invited with a couple of my friends, and we went to this establishment, Frenchys east sideI was expecting to have a good time, but the balding male, caucasion, bartender who was working at the Rockaway bar, on the date of 9 June 2007, at the hours between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. did not stir my chilled shot of Grand Marnier, as i asked, but shook it! Not two seconds after i told to stir it. This might sound superficial to complain about, although, ice remnants in a shot is like waking up one time after sleeping, and realizing you are losing hair from the top, middle section of your cranium. I complained, and this african american male, who is so dark, he is purple, grabbed me like i was a slavemaster of past of his, and got what was owed to him. I understand being thrown out, although, i am disabled. Walking is a chore for me now. I have a rod in my femur, and walking is a task now. Point of this is, the bar staff likes small tips, obviously. I showed this male bartender working on the day of 9Jun2007, $1000 cash, and he still shook my Grand Marnier shot, rather than stir it. I am back on my cane to aid my walk again. I just retired it last month. I despise the establishment just for the what happened to my person that day. I hope Mr. French, or whomever has the pleasure of calling that place a "business establishment"" prospers. A good piece of advice to give you, yellow teethe showing, brings a lot traffic slowing to slow down because of the yellow. African-Americans here in the United Sates, are owed something to them. So they send whitey to, collect? I guess I should say. Whitey has more luck collecting than performing
And remember the golden rule, one who jacks, has calloused hands. Anyway, call when you can. And ill talk to you later.
She Crab Soup to die for! – My husband and I have been spending the winters in Florida for several years. We love all of the Frenchy's restaurants but Rockaway's is our very favorite. The waiters and waitresses are number 1-very helpful and very friendly and the rum runners are the best in Florida-we visit this restaurant on a weekly basis and would recommend it highly to anyone-can't wait to get there!
awesome place, great fish – i did get the Caribbean Grouper, which was very good, and the view is just friggin amazing.i do agree w/ the other reviewer that the view is why people go, but they do have cheap drinks, and great food as well
User review by vinnygatch – We make it a point to go there everytime were' in the area. Biggest problem is what to order next! It is a place to relax and enjoy. Looking forward to our next visit.
Fronted by an expanse of gorgeous sea and sky, this quintessential beach bar serves up more than just good cocktails. – The Scene
It would be a challenge to find a more beautiful setting than Clearwater Beach at dusk. Broad, sugar-sand beach; sea oats flapping in the breeze; beachgoers playing volleyball and relaxing in the water. At dinnertime, meander right up to Frenchy's in your bathing suit, goofy sun hat and flip-flops and plop down at a table. You'll find a friendly waitstaff, very good food and excellent drinks.
Order the Caribbean jerk grouper sandwich, spiced Jamaican-style; it arrives with crispy chips and a big, cold drink with lots of ice; purists will want to order the more traditional grilled grouper sandwich. Frenchy's owns fishing boats, so you know the fish is going to be the freshest. It does salads and desserts well, too.
One Of My Favorite Places – I have been eating at Rockaway Grill for eight years now and I still enjoy going there. I have brought many people there from all over and they enjoyed it also. The name was the first thing that drew me as I come from an area in NYC called Rockaway. I'm very glad I tryed this restaurant. I also have eaten at Frenchy's other restaurants and have liked the food there as well. Keep up the good job.
Frenchy's – This place has the best location on Clearwater Beach, however the food is average at best and the sevice is deplorable. I have too many horror stories about the service there to write them all down. But everyone keeps going back again and again simply for the view and the crowds.
Over rated! – Very disappointing expereince at Frenchies. Food is VERYover priced. The location is the reason they are still in business. Cliquish, Servers snotty... food NOTHING special.
We hated it! A word of advice: Keep moving down the beach!
