Frenchys | October 20-21, 2017
The most anticipated block party on Clearwater Beach!
The Stone Crab Weekend phenomena was started by Frenchy’s in 1984 when owner, Michael “Frenchy” Preston, decided to offer his signature, fresh stone crab claws to the general public for just above cost. Today, visitors from around the world flock to Frenchy’s restaurants to enjoy the fresh claws and festive “beach party” atmosphere when season opens on October 15.
“Stone Crab Weekend is the biggest event we have all year,” said Preston. “It’s amazing how many people come here to enjoy our fresh stone crab claws with us year after year. Some actually plan their vacations around this event!”
In addition to the fresh-off-the-boat claws supplied by Frenchy’s Stone Crab Company at deeply discounted prices, the two-day block party will feature live music on stage, food and drink specials, raffles to win valuable prize packages with proceeds benefiting charity and much more!
Discounted stone crab prices will continue through Sunday, October 22nd, 2017, to round out the weekend in each of the four Frenchy’s Clearwater Beach restaurants and our Dunedin location. WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.
About Frenchy’s Restaurants: In 1981, Michael “Frenchy” Preston opened the Original Café at 41 Baymont St. with a mission to serve the best and freshest seafood possible on Clearwater Beach. Within a very short time, the Cafe became a popular spot for locals and visitors alike. Staying true to his mission, Frenchy opened his own seafood company to ensure a constant source of fresh seafood to the Café. His success continued on Clearwater Beach with the opening of Saltwater Café in 1989, Rockaway Grill in 1991 and South Beach Café in 2003. Three decades later, the Frenchy’s restaurants are still regarded as a staple for delicious, fresh-from-the-gulf seafood and reasonable prices in a fun, friendly atmosphere.
