LOTS TO LIKE-SEE & DO

Good food, great water views and dolphin watch trips in one location. We were not able to eat outside but the harbor view is amazing and it is easy to imagine a beautiful summer evening meal outside. The food was very good and well proportioned(except the cole slaw was a little skimpy). Recommend... read more

Flippers is located in a marina with wonderful sailboats in close proximity. At sunset, the view is spectacular, but that is not the best part. Their seafood jubilee is to kill for! I have never had a better combination of seafood and pasta - anywhere! The locale is quiet, the food excellent and romance is in the air!

This place also has great atmosphere as it is on the bay. Great views. You can also get one of the best Bushwackers ever here! They even offer 1/2 alcohol and alcohol-free options! I had the broiled seafood platter which consisted of shrimp, scallops, halibut, and a crab cake. Very, very good. The others in my party had the ribeye... More

We make sure to pay a visit here every year were down. The BEST time to go, right before sunset. The view is worth the trip. The food is outstanding and the free ice cream is great to. Pay them a visit!!!

Sitting just off a wharf, where yachts and luxury motor boats vie for attention, Flippers serves a delightful luncheon that is very reasonably priced. You can sit and watch the water and the boats as your meal is being prepared. Many offerings at lunch time are priced at ten dollars or so, and the taste exceeds the price substantially. This...

My wife and I went for lunch at Flippers on Feb. 11th. This was our first visit. The restaurant is separate from the bar area, as has a rustic setting which was very nice. We ordered a Flippers Seafood Jubilee ($11.), a Reuben sandwich ($10.) and a cup of Gumbo ($5.). I found the Reuben to be very tasty and... More

I enjoyed the tasty gumbo and house salad at Flippers. Unlike most gumbo, this gumbo did not burn my mouth with black pepper. I could actually taste the fish and shrimp in the mix. Highly recommend the gumbo served here. The salad was freshly made and crisp. My wife rated the bread pudding she ordered as average. I noticed the... More

We have eaten here many times and it is always good. Good menu, something for everyone. Casual. Summer is very busy and there will be a wait, winter is obviously much slower and we walk right in and sit down. They close at 9:00 pm year round. Crab claws, pasta, fried seafood, broiled seafood were all good. Nachos can be... More

Flippers is located on the pier where Cold Mill Dolphin Cruise is. When we finished our cruise we wanted something quick to eat. They have the standard sandwich menu, burgers, chicken sandwiches. Our waiter was friendly and the service was quick. My children ordered burgers and I had a chicken sandwich. They do have homemade custard as a desert.

Flippers is located in a marina and has a great outdoor deck. We arrived with our dog and realized we had forgotten his leash. It was a quiet day on the deck so we were allowed to have our dog with us while we ate. We really like fish reuben but only the standard reuben was on the menu and... More
