I am a sucker for Frenchy's. Just doesn't occur to me to give another fish restaurant on Clearwater Beach a chance. Decided to use up an Entertainment Club coupon, however, and my eyes are now open. LOVED Cooters. Tried the fried mahi mahi sandwich, and the blackened black grouper sandwich. Fries with one, rice and black beans with the other. Both sandwiches cooked perfectly, large portions, arrived hot. Beer batter in fried sandwich just delicious. Black beans and rice terrific, lots of red onion, cheese and sour cream. French fries were a little greasy, but I think my order was likely about the first of the day, and maybe they just didn't have the oil hot enough yet. Waitress over the top enthusiastic and also competent. Very casual, beachy, easy parking right in front, sandwiches about $7.25, will absolutely go back.
