Good food and service.....for a price!

The food at Flounder's is great, service was fast and courteous. Absolutely no complaints about any of it other than the price, which was not out of line for a seafood restaurant, especially those at the coast. I had the flash fried favorites and although I'm not a huge fan of seafood, it was very... read more

Our visit to Pensacola Beach was at a cold time of the year. We made the best of it and had a wonderful time at Flounder's. There was a playground for our grandson. He has a wonderful time on it. We enjoyed the beach view, the specialty drinks and great or Devers. My grandson thanked his dad for the great... More

We had an evening meal at Flounders because we wanted some good chowder. We are still looking for good chowder. We were served a tremendously huge bowl of chowder but found it a pasty concoction that was not to our liking. The onion ring stack..again gigantic but a bit hard and more breading than onion. The stuffed flounder again was... More

Wife got coconut ship and was also pleased. Excellent wait staff and very attractive ambience. All kinda stuff hanging along ceiling even a few life sized... More

I met up with some family here on a chilly Saturday afternoon, we sat in the very back next to the playground. The kids got to play for hours while we nursed some oysters and burgers. The waiter was new and was a great guy! We chatted about being local and how we live in Paradise year round!! We all... More

Flounders was recommended by the desk staff at the Hampton Inn and it was only steps away. Nice not to have to get in the car again to come here.. One of the guests at the hotel also recommended it. So off we went... on a cold windy Feb night.. Glad it was a short walk... We had to wait... More

We were here in February so no crowds to fight. We ate here twice in 1 week and if I could have their chowder shipped home every week...I would! It had lots of fish and I think shrimp in chunks in a very tasty, spicy chowder. Also had a great philly cheese steak sandwich. Right on the beach of the... More

Stuart recommended the Mahi Mahi and that meal was in my top 5 seafood experiences. Nice atmosphere...not classy, but the flavor was awesome. Was not at the warm time of the year so avoid the door areas at such a time so as not to have cold breezes every time someone comes in. With tip and no alcoholic beverages the... More
