We are here on a recommendation from a friend. When you first walk in its definitely got the over the top tourist trap feel. The hostesses were really nice and seated us right when we got there. The menu is not particularly the best. The seafood selection is minimal at best and to be honest a little pricey for their... More

Food here was good, mostly fried. We shared the Shrimp Boat platter between the 2 of us and were quite satisfied. We returned later to get a piece of their famous Key Lime Pie to take back to the hotel. We were shocked when we opened the box and found that what they considered one piece was actually 3 pieces!...

On travel to Pensacola and had a chance to visit some restaurants we haven't tried. Flounders had an outdoor open air theme with plenty of island music playing. Ice cold beer and my wife had a huge drink called "diesel fuel" in a souvenir mason jar. We chose the calamari appetizer and when it arrived at the table it looked... More

Warning!! The portions are huge. We were not real hungry so we ordered three appitizers. We ended up with a ton of leftovers! I recommend the fish tacos and the seafood nachoes. Careful with the diesel fuel house special drink, super strong!!

The Flounder Chowder soup was great. I had the shrimp boat and it was good. The server took ten min to check on us after our food arrived. My wife needed tarter sauce and I needed a drink refill but the server kept disappearing. The service was bad and the food was average. This place is just a bit better... More

Great seafood and view. We walked down from the Paradise Inn and had great seafood and drinks with a view of the water.

Incredibly relaxed atmosphere. People everywhere, but you don't feel crowded at all. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Gave great advice on popular dishes. Everything on the menu looked amazing. When I looked at food on other tables, all the dishes I could see were loaded down with large portions and everything looked scrumptious! Food came out very...
