BINGO! BEACHFRONT DINING RIGHT ON CLEARWATER BEACH!
Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill is located right on Clearwater Beach and is not only a convenient location to dine at but also has the reviews to prove it is one of the tastiest restaurants in the area. Frenchy’s has multiple locations but this restaurant is their largest venue and is one of the Sun Kind of Living team’s absolute non-negotiable stops when dining in Clearwater Beach. If your tastebuds are searching for fresh seafood and your toes are eager to sink into some warm, Florida sand, Frenchy’s beach-front dining will check all of your expectation boxes. The restaurant is located right on the Gulf of Mexico and the view is superb.
LET SUN KIND OF LIVING PLAN YOUR DAY!
Our Sun Kind of Living team recommends arriving early. Pack up your lawn chairs, beach towels, shelling bags and Sun Ninja Tent and drive to the parking lot located right by Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill. The parking here is super reasonable so pay for a couple hours at the kiosk and start your day enjoying the warm Florida sunshine and the salty sea air. Our Sun Kind of Living crew set up our Sun Ninja tent and relaxed by the ocean for a couple of hours before walking over to Frenchy’s. Please note, Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill is a VERY popular restaurant so we don’t recommend waiting till you’re starving and hangry at noon to then make your way over. Head over around 11/11:30AM in order to avoid long wait times.
NO EXTRA DRINKS FOR YOU!!!
Our team’s only minor annoyance when dealing with Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill is the fact that the restaurant has a policy about alcoholic beverages. (The restaurant themselves might not have made the policy but they certainly do obey it!) The bartenders will only serve patrons coming up to the bar ONE drink per person, per ID, while waiting for a table. This can prove to be frustrating when trying to be kind and buy a round of drinks for your friends. The restaurant is huge sticklers about this and will not bend. The only way to get multiple drinks is to have every person in your party standing at the bar to show their ID and pick them up. Just make a mental note of this little tidbit in advance so you’re not shocked and flustered that you cannot purchase and surprise your friends with some ice cold adult beverages.
ONWARD TO THE FUN PART!
Outdoor seating is a must when enjoying all that Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill has to offer. These tables might be in demand but definitely worth the wait. Once seated, sit back, relax and enjoy a Florida Orange IPA or a personal favorite, the Key Lime Colada. Both drinks are refreshing and will instantly remind you that you are in an oceanfront paradise. The culinary choices are endless at this beachfront oasis but Sun Kind of Living suggests you start with a bowl (not a cup) of She Crab Soup. A cup is just not enough of this creamy, soothing bowl of perfection. The soup is made in-house daily and is a must! Order a “Fresh Catch” pretzel to share with your table guests. The pretzel is actually shaped like the restaurant’s fishbone logo and hangs ever so cleverly on a hook surrounded by warm cheese dip and honey mustard. This soft pretzel definitely is Instagram worthy! Let’s move onto the main course. Our Sun Kind of Living team always has a very hard time deciding on just one main course so sometimes we share. This restaurant has fresh seafood delivered daily so a dozen fresh oysters is always part of our main course selection along with one of Frenchy’s Famous Grouper Sandwiches. Whether you enjoy your grouper grilled, fried, or seasoned, the same proves to be true… Frenchy’s makes AMAZING grouper sandwiches, especially the Grouper Reuben. Give it a try!
FOOD ALLERGY? NO PROBLEM!
Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill is very accommodating when it comes to understanding food allergies. Whether it is a shellfish allergy or a peanut allergy, they’ve got you covered. Frenchy’s even puts small “ALLERGY” food flags on meals to make sure that the staff is cautious about cross contamination. Our team was VERY impressed with how Frenchy’s handles food allergies.
