Love Floundes

Great food and service. If you have a large party this is the place to go! They do not have a problem with seating large groups. We normally have a large group with us so this will always be our choice

Have visited many times and will again. The signature chowder is out of this world delicious and could be a meal in itself. The you'd miss out on the fish tacos or po' boys or other delights. Generous portions. Stopping in for a quick drink is also a pleasant experience.

The chowder was awesome! We each had a bowl and we shared the seafood nachos. The nachos could easily feed four! Atmosphere inside is dark. The day we were there it was too cold to sit outside but that would have been better.

Plenty of seafood of course ... all fresh. Good service. Large portions. Located just off the bridge to the left. Close to several large hotels.

My family of four had a late lunch. The service was swift! Decor great. The coconut shrimp was divine! The servings are massive. Get the key lime pie!

The diesel acholic drink was just right, strong but not too... More

On our way thru to the Atlantic we stopped in Pensacola for a layover. Upon a recommendation by a local we tried Flounders. The decor is interesting with boat motors, garage doors, pool table, church pews for seating and more. We were seated promptly but it took our waiter a long time to find us, just as we were about...

We recently had lunch at Flounders. The Flounder chowder was delicious and the fish tacos great. The atmosphere is set in a contained beach with playground and volleyball court... All while looking out on the bay.
