This is our second time to Flippers. We go to Gulf Shores, AL as a family every year and we went last year, we sat outside which wasn't a good idea because bugs were falling into food from the above lights. Food was delicious so we gave it another go this year. Once again, food was delicious but they sat... More

This little gem of the restaurant is tucked back in Orange Beach. Overlooking the harbor it provides great views for those looking for a fantastic atmosphere. If you go to late you'll expect to have a relatively long wait as the restaurant is fairly tiny. However, there is a great outdoor bar where you and your group and said watch... More

First restaurant we visited during our first visit to Gulf Shores. Came at lunch with a family of 6. No problem finding a large table. There was a wonderful view of the marina, and the a/c felt great. My mother and son shared a pound of Royal Red shrimp, and they said it was the best shrimp they ever had,... More

While waiting for the Dolphin Cruise, we stopped for lunch. One person in our group of three ordered a burger which was large and delicious, one ordered a shrimp basket which tasted fresh, and one ordered a house salad with grilled chicken which was yummy. The French fries were seasoned and crunchy. Delicious! We would definitely consider returning.

Flippers has great food. The view is awesome. It's a really fun and super laid back atmosphere. There's live music at the bar on the dock. Try the seafood nachos. They are fantastic.
