I had the best snapper of my life at Flounders! I don't know if they had just gotten a ton in or if snapper is really every waiter's favorite fish but it was recommended to me and I overheard other waiters recommending the same thing. It was amazing! Blackened with a citrus buerre. So, so good! My husband ordered seafood... More

Yes, they do have a grilled fish section for your entree- they were out of red snapper at 7pm though. The majority of the menu selection is fried and our selections-Fred's Flounder favorites, Shrimp Boat Platter all tasted the same.

Let's start with the food then move past that. If you are looking for fresh seafood or fine dinning pass. But Flounders is still worth a visit just order seafood nachos and or fish tacos and a few drinks. Service is good and they do have play area for kids and volley ball as well.

My friend requested a substitute for the asparagus and was told she would have to pay for one. This seems a bit rigid. Many people have allergies, sensitivities, etc. Also, the oyster po boy really needed more oysters.

This restraint is located on the Soundside of beach; thus if one has boat they just moor at the dock provided. Often beach volleyball is played on the grounds - usually a live band on the weekends.

This is a great place to eat and hang out. We went to Flounders several times during our visit. The food was very good, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was fun and exciting. This restaurant is very busy during peak times and it is loud and a bit chaotic, but certainly worth it. We did a late lunch... More

The atmosphere, service and food were absolutely wonderful.I enjoyed sitting outside near the beach. The shrimp platter was wonderful. Flouder's has the best coconut shrimp I have ever tasted. This may be a typical touristy place, but there are many things that set it apart from the crowd. The excellent service and food are two things that set it apart.... More

Whenever we make a visit to Pensacola, this is a "must" place to stop. The atmosphere, service and food are excellent. The fish n chips are best I've had anywhere! Considering this restaurant is owned by the same person that owns McGuires, it's no wonder why it's such a great place!

It's your typical touristy place. The food was good, and the service was good. The atmosphere is neat and they have outside seating on the bay, which makes for an interesting experience.
