A meal on the Intercoastal Waterway.

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... read more

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.

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!

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!!!

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 this place for all the above. A... More

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
