I love fried oysters, and this restaurant at Bear Point Marina hit the top of the scale for me. The oysters were perfect, and the remoulade and cocktail sauces were both good. The fries were something special, and the PoBoy bun was buttered and toasted to perfection. The slaw was colorful and fresh, not "mayonnaise-y" like so many restaurants serve.... More

We had been on the Sunset Dolphin cruise and when we returned we were hungry and decided to give Flipper's a try! It was wonderful!! Would definitely eat here again. Food and service were both great!!

Just like any restaurant in Orange Beach, you will probably have a wait. We eat here every year because the atmosphere is nice. The view is nice and the food is better than most of the touristy places here.

Our experience at Flippers restaurant followed on of the Cold Mil Fleet Dolphin Cruises. The entire experience, beginning to end, was absolute perfection. We took our three kids, ages 19, 9 & 7 on the 4:00 dolphin cruise, which lasts 90 minutes. This was not our first dolphin cruise, over the years we've taken two others. This cruise was far... More

Flippers was highly recommended to us by a local. Food lived up to its rep. However, the terrible service is what will overshadow the food and keep my family away. We were seated along the back deck with a beautiful view right at dusk. Our server was as expected in the beginning. After ordering she seemed to be playing hide... More

Like one of the other posters here, we went twice on our last family trip to the beach. We have a place there and have sampled most of the restaurants. Flippers is our favorite casual seafood restaurant in Orange Beach. We've been 4 times. The service has been excellent. The food outstanding. Probably the best fried shrimp in the area.... More

Flippers has a great menu and staff. They offer free ice-cream; even if you just stop by. Situated on a Bay marina it gives you a great view of ships while you eat. It's a great place to relax and get away from the bulk of tourists.

Hands down the best food in Orange Beach. I had the Cajun ribeye, it was so delicious. Being from Louisiana & having been to several other well known area restaurants, was not expecting it to be very well seasoned or cooked. You're also served free homemade ice cream after your meal. Awesome atmosphere and excellent service. Will be back every... More

There are several great restaurants in the Orange Beach and Gulf Shores area and several new ones with good reviews so going to the same one twice was unusual for my family. But that is exactly what we chose to do because the food at Flippers is outstanding. My husband is the gumbo fanatic and he proclaimed this gumbo the... More

Our family of four went for dinner and had a fantastic experience. We were waited on by Angie and she was awesome! We had raw oysters, seafood platter, coconut fried shrimp and chicken Alfredo. Everything was delicious! No wait at 6:45! Watched a beautiful sunset on the water too. It was a great ending to a wonderful day at the... More
