Great Food and View

We live right down the road and can't seem to stay out of this place. Great food, plenty of it and an excellent staff. Always a good visit when we go here. The view of the Sound is nice, also they have a nice playground area for the kids. Open-air dining when the weather is right. I just can't... read more

Great place! We ate lunch there and there was a playground for the kids while we waited for our food. Food was very good too. Cute little shop / boutique there also!

So, I stumbled over from from Margaritaville and found the Jimmy Buffet vibe I was looking for. Right on a beach, great decor, fun bar and really great food! I had the snapper, grilled, with red potatoes and asparagus, Over the top delicious, Very casual. If you are in Pensacola find the restaurant and eat here!

This restaurant has the best of everything we loved it and it's right on the beach. The one thing you have to try before leaving Florida is this place you also can't leave without trying their Key Lime Pie, but make sure you have at least 4 people to eat it with because it is huge! Their food is great... More

Flounders has a great atmosphere if you like a beach setting. Fun for both adults and kids...and adults without kids. Plenty of beverages to choose from. Tons of seating so they tend to get you seated fairly quickly (good for them - tend to overestimate your wait time). Service is good and efficient. Portions tend to be large. The only... More

Their key lime Pie and clam chowder are excellent. I have not seen such a huge key lime Pie for such a good price! Their Clam chowder is very much like the New England Chowder! It is the best! I was surprised to eat such good chowder in the south!

I've eaten here on many occasions at different times of the day and night. during the day, the appetizers and cold beer and frozen drinks can't be beat as you gander at all ages playing on the volleyball courts, sitting at the fire ring on the outdoor sofas, the children playing on the yard goodies, and boats docking to come...

Stopped in there twice on our most recent trip. To say that they know what theyre doing is a bit of an understatement. The place is huge and caters to everyone. You wont waste time waiting and the service is bang on. And then there's the food. Beauty ! You really do have to try the chowder, but be warned... More

Here is the deal, if you have kids from ages 2 to 8 this place is perfect. Great play area in the sand and they even have big misters to keep them cool. We've had better seafood on this trip but it's still really good. Lots of drink specials and a really nice view.
