We spent the evening at Clearwater Beach, and right after sunset we walked over to Frenchy's Rockaway Grill, on the recommendation of 2 friends. In hindsight, we should have put our name on the list before we were ready to leave the beach because there was a 45 minute wait. The hostess texted us as well as called for us when our table was ready. This is an open-air restaurant, so it was warm - just the way I like it! There was a great band playing, so the restaurant was pretty loud, but I enjoyed that too. Our waitress, Rachel H, was amazing. Despite the noise, we were able to hear everything she said, and she somehow heard and understood us as well. We had already looked over the menu while we were waiting, so she took our drink and food orders right away. Our group ordered fried shrimp, grouper nuggets, Rockaway fish tacos, Cali Beach fish tacos, and chicken fingers. Rachel kept our drinks filled and our food was cooked to order and brought out promptly. We all agreed that everything was delicious! The shrimp and grouper came with a side of coleslaw that was absolutely amazing - it was sweetened with pineapple! Probably the best coleslaw I have ever had. We kept Rachel busy asking for this and that, but she always quickly returned with everything we needed. I definitely enjoyed and recommend Frenchy's Rockaway Grill!

The patio dining was nice and cool with the overhead fans. Cream of crab soup was delicious. Great service too!

Overall a great place. Derive and atmosphere are great. Oysters were a disappointment. Basically a good value for the food on a great location.

Frenchy's is a quint essential beach bar and grill. The food is really good and it has a lively beach atmosphere. The grouper sandwich was excellent with a generous portion of grouper. The appetizers were all delicious.

We sat on the street side around 6ish and the evening sun was pretty intense. At about 7 the sun dropped behind the hotels on the beach side and it cooled off considerably. Seating inside is very limited and given it is open it is at best cool.

Just what you would hope far in a beach bar. Good food, drinks and service.

A fun location. Right next to the Sandpearl on the beach. It came so highly recommended that we thought we'd try it. Location is not everything. Frenchy's is basically a bar with food. We had the grouper sandwich...supposedly grouper is their speciality. It was just OK. Nothing special, nothing to talk about...it got the job done. That's fine, but it should not have such high of a rating. If you want drinks, this is your place. Go elsewhere to eat. PS....it appears a little dirty too.
