Are water was so amazing. He made recommendations and jade sure he was clear in what we were asking. Only draw back was a screaming child nothing restaurant could really do. However the manager or owner did stop at the table to see what he could do to calm the child. I have to give him a big thumbs up... More

Great food, well priced especially for a resort area. Staff were friendly and service was fast. Parking is a bit limited during peak hours

Okay, I admit it's not much to look at and it has a saltwater feel even when you're indoors. In fact, you may want to close your eyes if you mind sandy, wooden plank floors and some local color. I like it. Frenchy's Saltwater Cafe is an "Old Florida," local hangout that is also popular with laid-back tourists looking for... More

SOOOO Good. Get the She Crab Soup, melt in your mouth delicious! I lived in Orlando for 8 years many moons ago and wish I had stopped here way back when, because I've been missing out. We took a wonderful walk across the bridge from the aquarium for lunch and we are still daydreaming about the delicious meal. Get the... More

My wife and I ate at Frenchy's yesterday for lunch. We arrived by boat. The dock hand was not on his "A" game yesterday as he had a shoulder injury and was down to one arm but he managed. The service and feed were great. We eat at Frenchy's anytime we are boating in the Clearwater area. My wife had... More

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.

Seafood is fresh and taste's good. Prices were comparable to other seafood restaurants. Biggest difference was portion sizes were smaller. Service was good, but one of the children's meals was cold and had to be sent back. Was a little disappointed after hearing all the great things about Frenchy's
