Frenchy’s goal is simple: to have a friendly, laid-back place where people can come to enjoy a cold drinks and fresh seafood.
So in 1981, Frenchy’s Original Café, the quaint restaurant on a tiny side street, opened its doors to the beach community. The Café became an instant success, with lines of people stretching out the door on a daily basis. To ensure a constant source of fresh fish to the Café, Frenchy purchased a fleet of fishing boats and eventually opened Frenchy’s Seafood Company. With these resources in place, Frenchy’s became “famous” for its fresh Super Grouper sandwich, spawning the opening of three more Clearwater Beach Restaurants: Frenchy’s Saltwater Café in 1989, Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill in 1991 and Frenchy’s South Beach Cafe in 2003. Three decades running, the Frenchy’s restaurants are still regarded as a staple for delicious, fresh-from-the-Gulf seafood at reasonable prices in a fun and casual beach atmosphere.
