I was in town visiting family and we came here for dinner because we had an evening to something "touristy." It was a Saturday night around 8 and the place was packed. We ended up waiting about 45 minutes for a table (not complaining just realize it is a busy place so on a busy night you will wait). Also,... More

Although a little difficult to reach as it was on the other side of the roundabout from our hotel it was worth the trouble of finding the path that goes under the road. Great casual dining-we ate on the front porch at a long picnic bench. The grilled avocado appetizer was amazing and the seafood pot pie was the BEST... More

A good local hang with good service and food! Frenchy is consistent on the beach with his eateries! Value is always consistent with any Frenchy location on the beach.

W e had dined at Frenchy's Rockaway Grill earlier in the week, so I expected this location would also have a gluten free menu. They did not, and when I asked my server she struggled with recommending options. I ended up having the grilled grouper with coconut rice and cole slaw, which is the same meal I had at the... More

I had the fried grouper sandwich. It was pretty good. Kinda thin and lots of breading. Wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be. Service was fast and friendly.

Best grouper sandwich around! The grouper nuggets are a must with Frenchy's hot sauce or mix them in a salad! Conch fritters are a must try. Atmosphere is fun in the sun! Once you eat at Frenchy's, you'll be back!

Frenchy's is a great place to have dinner. We are outside and really enjoyed the food. Anything GROUPER is a must in the area. We will go back for sure. The Mountain Shine is a great drink.

Visited with hubby and 7yo daughter for dinner. Short wait and sat outside in the back, which was much calmer than the front.Dinner was good for my 7yo who ordered the cheeseburger kids meal. Our appetizers of grouper nuggets and crab fries was tasty. That's where the "good" turned quickly to "bad". Our orders of Almond encrusted Snapper over salad... More
