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.

Outstanding food! I had the broiled seafood platter with hush puppies! Broiled grouper, scallops and shrimp along with a crab cake! It was all delicious but the broiled grouper was the best piece of fish I've ever eaten! My wife had blackened shrimp with rice pilaf and a vegetable medley! She said it was very good! We will go back... More

We went to Flippers after an afternoon on a dolphin cruise. It was a cold and windy cruise so we were chilled to the bone. Flippers is very much out of the way and backs up to a marina. The food was pretty good and because we were the only ones there when we arrived, the service and food were... More

My husband and I went for the early bird special dinners. They have 8-10 different meals to choose from for $9.99 which includes salad and ice cream. I had the hamburger steak dinner which was okay, but nothing special. My husband had the shrimp scampi, which he said was good, but not a huge portion. Inside seating is very limited.

Gave this place a try for lunch while visiting orange beach. the hostess who was also our waitress was not friendly or personable. Then their was the food. I got the crab cakes appetizer, ($10 for two cakes) which arrived WAY too fast to be fresh. it was barely warm and very soggy. It was aweful! And hardly any crab.... More

You can go here from land or from the bay - pull into the parking lot or in your boat. The food is good and the music is fun in the outdoor bar area. My granddaughter loves to watch the boats and feed the fish from the dock, She also like the free ice cream they give away with each... More

This is an informal, very casual marina restaurant. Enjoyed our food: grilled grouper for the seafood lover, and hanger steak for the non fin eater. Very nice homemade Key lime pie for dessert. Reasonable prices, low key but friendly service.

Went here for dinner, met chef mike outside, talked about what was for dinner, he told us about his hand picked specials, Asian Peppered Tuna-cannot describe how delicious this was - AWESOME. Food always good at Flippers, has one of the finest burgers on the beach

We went there as a large group for lunch. They accommodated us. We sat immediately and ordered right away. While we waited we went out in the deck/harbor and fed the fish. They let us know our food was about ready and we washed up and we're served. The food was excellent, fresh caught seafood! Service with a smile and... More

We chose this restaurant for the grouper on the menu and decent reviews. We enjoyed the grouper but agree with the reviewer about the gumbo - didn't taste like fresh crab. When we asked for bread to accompany the $25 'grouper special', our (sweet) waitress told us that it would take a little while. And it did. To our surprise,... More
