Soft Ice Cream

Was given a couple of coupons for free cup of ice cream at Flippers. My wife and I took a ride in the evening to Flippers. They were very nice and asked if we wanted chocolate or Strawberry topping. Enjoyed the soft ice cream. Will return for food next trip.

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.

We waited twenty minutes for a waitress to take our drink order. Then we waited another twenty minutes for our check. We never received an apology for any of the wait. The food was ok nothing to write home about at all.

Service was horrible! Food was alright but Very inconsistent portions. Eight people in our party, 3 of us ordered fried shrimp. All three had different amounts, anywhere from 10 to 25. All cost the same. We will not be back.

We had seafood nachos for an appetizer and fried seafood platter. Everything tasted fresh and not too greasy. Sat outside and the view was amazing. Very relaxing atmosphere with good food. We would definitely return!
