Agree with Awesome Seafood

Our wait was only 5 - 10 minutes. Our food was very, very good. Our selections ranged from a seafood platter to ribeye steak to a fish sandwich. All items were great. The homemade key lime pie was awesome too! Great atmosphere at the marina.

We were seated on the outside patio area, which has a great view of the marina and boats coming and going out of the marina. The evening we were there, we got to see a beautiful red, orange and blue sunset. The food matches up to the view. I had the Broiled Gulf Platter, which consisted of broiled shrimp, scallops...

Call off the search, this is the place for everyone. The bar area is great for adults. The atmosphere is great for children and the fried shrimp was a huge hit with my group. The Royal reds are like little lobsters and are not to be missed. The fresh fish meals were the best we have had in the area.... More

Was told about Flippers from the parasail guys so we went there for a late lunch. Everything was very good and very fresh. It was so good we went back the next evening for dinner. Highly recommend the Hurricane Grouper but everything we had was delicious. Stephanie, our waitress, was great and very helpful with recommendations. Will go back every... More

Maybe it was an off time of day when we visited, but we were just not impressed with the food OR the service. Typical fried beach fare..would not return.

Decided to come here for dinner a few nights ago with my family. For appetizers we had fish dip. It was a very good smoked fish dip. Probably the best thing we ate. My wife had the pecan encrusted grouper, she said the fish was just OK but the rice pilaf was not very good. I had the chef's fresh... More

We have been to Flippers a few times. Each time, everyone in our group has been pleased with their dinner. They have the Red Shrimp that is remarkable. This time Ihad the special which was Hurricane Grouper. It was delicious. And you can't beat a little bowl of free ice cream for dessert!

Food is not worth the cost. Just average. Service not great. Prices however. They were maybe above average but not extravagant.

The outside dining was refreshing. We enjoyed the marina view while listening to the music. The gumbo was very good and our seafood plates were wonderful. The best part of the meal was the chocolate cake with the complimentary handmade ice cream. A wonderful way to finish a great gulf coast meal.
