At Frenchy's

This oversized turtle and his undersized surf board greet patrons at Frenchy's Saltwater Cafe' in Clearwater Beach, Florida.

Frenchy's is a favourite restaurant, famous for its fresh seafood. Founded by Mike Preston, who was born in Quebec, Frenchy's employs local fishermen and a fleet of fishing vessels to bring in the freshest offerings daily from the Gulf of Mexico.

Frenchy's has grown into a group of four restaurants in the Clearwater area: Frenchy's Original, Saltwater Cafe', Rockaway Grill and South Beach Cafe'. Home of the amazing grouper sandwich, the Frenchy restaurants are famous for their snapper, crab, shrimp, mahi mahi, conch fritters...well, you get the picture.... the ocean's bounty.

The Frenchy restaurants have a relaxed beach atmosphere, with seating indoors and outdoors and very reasonable prices. Take a look, for example, at the Saltwater Cafe' menu.

On a recent visit, we sat on the outdoor patio at the Saltwater and enjoyed a wonderful late night dinner facing the turtle mascot above.

The turtle is an appropriate symbol in Clearwater. Starting in May and throughout the summer, sea turtles emerge in the darkness from the Gulf of Mexico to nest in the white sandy beaches of Florida's west coast. The turtle is a protected animal in Florida. Did you know that lights are a hazard to them? Now I understand why beaches are closed at night.

Florida is an amazing place to see wildlife.
