Great service and food! We both ordered the broiled seafood platter ($23.00 each). It was outstanding! The appetizer we ordered was fried crab claws and they were honestly the best I have ever had ($24.00 but the serving was huge!!). We chose to sit outside and it was very pleasant until a child started feeding the birds then we were... More

After sailing on The Daedlius we went to Flippers for the best Coconut Shrimp and Bushwackers in Orange Beach. All thanks to Capt BJ!

On advice from a visitor center representative, we found Flippers at the marina. Handicap parking was, unfortunately, near the hot, steaming dumpsters, so our introduction was pretty "whiff"! We were seated promptly at a pleasant outdoor table with completely uncomfortable chairs -- they inclined too far back and the seat was deeply slanted to the rear. We had experienced really... More

Was told about this marina restaurant by a local as being their favorite. Visited on night. Good view. Average prices for the area. Good food. Fast, friendly service. Good size portions. Free homemade ice-cream for dessert. Will go back.

Flippers has consistently good food. The broiled seafood platter is great as is the fried platter. We also liked the Caesar salad with grilled shrimp appetizer (make sure to tell them to give you the shrimp as an appetizer)! They also offer free ice cream for dessert--but the bread pudding is worth a few extra dollars.

My wife and I stop for lunch at Flipper's very time we visit Orange Beach. I get my usual, the shrimp Po-boy sandwich. It's fresh light and wonderfully delicious. Make sure to ask for the remoulade sauce to go on it cause it's the bomb. We have never sat inside to have lunch. We always sit out back and take... More

With all the restaurants in Orange Beach, it is difficult not to want to try a different one every night. However, when one is as good as Flipper's, it is impossible to resist the urge to return on our last night of this vacation. The Greek grouper is the best I've ever had, and I repeated this menu choice as... More

Located on a beautiful marina, this restaurant had great food and service! Kind of out of the way to find though.
