Good times

We came with a group 10 minutes before closing, and they sat us and served us like it wasn't closing time. The food was good, and the kids stayed entertained with the coloring menu. We enjoyed the food, but the sweet tea tasted a little funny...maybe a brand that I'm not used to drinking. We will... read more

Good food and service. This is a good place to bring a family. Outdoor and indoor seating along with an outdoor bar. They have TV's in the bar if you have a football or sporting event you want to watch. This restaurant has boat access, although not a lot of parking. There is a place to refuel if you need... More

Me, My wife, and another couple found this place by using Trip Advisor. It was well reviewed and I definitely concur. The views were great, as we sat outside. The food was excellent. It was not crowded and the service was top notch. We will most certainly revisit Flipper's

Wife and I ate here for dinner. It is located on the backside of the island facing the bay. A very laid back casual place. Not crowded but expected since it was mid week and off season. Ordered the broiled seafood platter and the wife ordered a steak. Both were good and was surprised how tasty the steak my wife... More

Casual and delicious. Pretty good for kids, but there aren't rails by the water so you have to be careful. Food is delicious. Always availability which is nice when other places are packed.
