One of the four Frenchy's establishments in the Pier60 area that take part in the Frenchy's Passport Challenge...get a drink at each place and get a 10% off of your next purchase at Frenchy's Off The Hook giftshop. It's a fun deal that we always take part in! Grab an appetizer and a meal while there as well...great options!


I've been eating at the Saltwater Cafe for years but hadn't been back in the area for about 8 years. It's great to see something that hasn't changed. The quality of the food is excellent and staff are friendly and efficient. We actually ate here twice on our recent five night trip. The She crab soup and key lime pie were a few of the highlights, but everything is good. Oh yeah, almost forgot the garlic crab fries which I had never tried before, but will never pass up on future visits. Frenchy, please keep doing what you've been doing.

Host was awesome. Waiter awesome. Good PHENOMENAL!!! The place an old school Florida vibe in the heart of over-done commercialism. Love it.

After having my first meal at this restaurant, I was miffed at being offered the choice of 18% 20% or 25% tip options which I thought was a bit rich. Especially since I tried to amend my order immediately after placing only to be told ‘ sorry too late, already pushed the button’ . It was not until I got out of the restaurant that ‘schmuck’ came into my mind. My wife have bought a Frenchys T shirt for an eye watering $26 which the ‘ helpful’ waiter said ‘ don’t worry I will put in the bill’. Only to have 20% service charge added! What a betrayal of trust from a company who has modern software that could easily separate items purchased. Shame on you Frenchys!! They gave me my money back as soon as I pointed it out.

Steve was great, fantastic & super fresh local fish. The world famous grouper sandwich is so good, the crab soup also! Delicious Fries. Get there before the dinner rush, they have nice outer area heaters. Good vibesFood: 5/5


Just had lunch with another couple. Great food; terrific service. Love the fish pretzel & sauces. Cerviche was good. Trio special was good. Friend liked the She crab soup - really thick and grouper sandwich. Good key lime and peanut pies.

Wow! Great seafood at reasonable prices. Part of the Frenchy's restaurant group, but I think this one has the most seafood in Clearwater. Excellent service in laid-back beach vibe atmosphere. No, there are no views of the ocean, but the food makes up for it. All varieties of the grouper and snapper we had were excellent the 2 times we visited. They have their own boats to catch the fish daily. Only 1 block inland from the main strip.

Sara from Philly was the most wonderful waitress….. best roasted oysters and peanut butter pie on the planet!!!!!!! Frenchy’s on Poinsettia never disappoints!


We love seafood and were not disappointed with all the great fish we got here. There was a lot left over. Be prepared to not be able to choose what you want for dinner as the menu is large.

My first time here was absolutely fantastic and the she-crab soup was definitely the best I've ever had. It was so good I came back again a day later. By far the best food I've had in Clearwater. And the service was fantastic too what a great combo right?The oysters were amazing!


The waitress was nice and knowledgeable about the menu. She gave great suggestions. Recommend the garlic fries and the stuffed grouper.


This place is a must to eat at. The grouper sandwich was huge and delicious. Our waiter was excellent. Prices are excellent for the amount of food you get. So many people recommended this saying its the best around. This is so true.


We were referred to Frenchy's by the hotel staff. There are multiple locations, most within walking distance. It did not disappoint. Casual outdoor dining you expect at a beach town. The conch fritters (one of my must haves on any beach trip) were great. The seafood ceviche felt fresh, was well presented and more than I could finish. Our party also had She Crab soup, coconut shrimp and smiles all around. Sarah, our server, was friendly and attentive. All around, a good lunch, worth the walk.

Nice place with pretty tasty food. Our table shared crab fries, fried gator, and the bone fish pretzel. I had the seafood pot pie and it was nice and creamy with the right balance of all the ingredients.Food: 5/5
