Best steak anb seafood.

We always make a stop here to eat and we are never disappointed. Start off with the smoked tuna dip. I had the Cajun ribeye with vegetables and it was tender anb delicious. Relaxed casual atmosphere and we sat out on the deck to watch the boats.

Online menu different than menu in restaurant. $1.00 more a plate for take out and was not told when placing order. Take out portion control looks like kids menu. Kathy Adams-owner hung up on me when called to question price and portion. When called back she told her employee that she wasn't going to talk to me today. I'm a... More

This was by far one of my favorite places to eat on our vacation. We had a party of seven adults and three kids and the service and food was excellent. Everyone in our party enjoyed our food. I had the blackened chicken sandwich this was a huge sandwich you will not leave hungry that's for sure. One of my... More

Worth 5 stars. Great options, friendly & attentive service. Loved the location. Enjoyed all the seafood options, best we've had in Gulf Shores casual dining. Steak was good but not amazing which was the only thing that kept this from being a perfect dining experience.

We have been coming to Orange Beach for many years but had never eaten at Flippers. We looked on Trip Advisor for somewhere different to try. Our food was great and the local atmosphere with a beautiful sunset made for a delightful date night! We had the fried shrimp and the blackened fish which were both excellent. The bread pudding...

Whenever my wife andi travel we like to ask a local about places to eat. Jennifer at the Island House hotel suggested Flippers and boy was she right. We sat outside during sunset and it was wonderful, but as great an atmosphere as that was, the food was 10 times better than the atmosphere. We started with the smoked tuna... More

We had heard good things about this place from friends, but it was quite a way from our hotel. We made the drive and it was well worth it. We sat outside and the view of the sunset and sailboats was wonderful. service was fast and friendly, and the food was superb.

Seafood, because what else would you get in Orange Beach? We actually enjoyed this restaurant so much, we ate there twice in one week. We were seated outside both times, next to the water where we watched boats come in to dock. It's a great spot. I gave a 4 rating because we did have to wait during our meals... More

We just loved it!!! We sat outside on a lovely night, near the docks. Our waitress was fabulous! "Sandy" we think- she gave us great recommendations and was 100% on the money! We didn't do appetizers, so we can't comment there. She encouraged grilled items as she said this chef was amazing there- one ribeye steak with baked potato, one... 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!
