Very nice beach restaurant

We stopped for lunch one day. The food was great, but if you are not starving, you may want to consider sharing a plate. My husband had the seafood burger, which is a burger topped with fish and shrimp. He loved it. My burger was great too. We recommend it.

If you are looking for a seafood restaurant in Pensacola Beach with great food, wait staff, and atmosphere, look no further. We loved Flounders! The chowder is off the charts--maybe the best I've ever tried (and I've eaten a lot of chowder). The flounder fingers were a great appetizer. We had the shrimp boat and loved it--enough to share.

I love flounders seafood nachos. They are enough for a family to eat on and take some home. The atmosphere is always excellent and the food is always great. They come in a close 2nd only to Peg Leg Pete's.

This is a tourists heaven! Our waitress was awesome, she was very busy and still managed to give us great service. I got the shrimp po boy and my wife got the biggest on the beach burger. They were both awesome. If you get the key lime pie I reccomend you have 4 people with you to finish it, it... More

I'm not sure why this place gets good reviews. We lived in Clearwater area for a long time and this is one of the worst beach style restaurant we have ever been too. Red fish Blue Fish seems to be a much better choice around here. I think most people are on their way to being drunk so they don't... More

Very good place to eat, a little over priced but good. Kinda crowded a couple times we went and the prices made us leave once because it wasn't worth waiting an hour for...it was ok though the 3 times we ate there.

I loved the atmosphere, the food was outstanding and the prices very reasonable, I mean a 1 and half pound lobster for 39 dollars, an a total tab for 4 with drinks 150, you can't beat that, indoor or outdoor dinning on the beach, we are from Florida, and it was just beautiful, it was like a giant tiki bar,...

You could fall over walking around because there is just so much to look at. And it's hanging everywhere! We had just eaten but the food walking by still looked awesome but very intimidatingly large. Their nachos looked like small mountains and the taco's I can't imagine how you'd go about eating them, super stuffed. But the airplane that flew... More
