When one comes to the Gulf, one seeks a place with good food and a good view. This place had excellent views and food. Their food wasn't greasy, like so many other places in the area. The gumbo was excellent. The service was outstanding. Greg did a fine job. Of course we were there in mid-afternoon with very few other... More

We live in Orange Beach and have eaten at Flippers several times. It was a great place to eat but the food, and service have gone down. I ordered the Cajun Ribeye which in the past was amazing. The last two times I have gotten it, it was overcooked and FULL of fat. Tonight just really upset me when a... More

Settled on Flippers after seeking out a restaurant with outdoor seating. The menu had plenty of options that looked appetizing, but came out somewhat lack luster. The seafood and steaks weren't cooked well at all in our opinion. The service was incredibly slow due to what appeared to be short staff on hand. Our waitress was very nice and tried... More

Went here for lunch and front door was locked found the side door unlocked and was able to be seated. Our server was great and the food was very good, only negative was the price. The royal reds were great as was the crab claws appetizer. My daughters enjoyed there food as well.

Vacation Dolphin cruise and we were hungry when we returned. We asked to be seated outside. Nice view and nice weather. Family meal. I got the grouper hurricane special with grits and vegetables. Wife got combo fried platter. Kids chicken tenders and crawfish poboy. All the food was excellent with a unique New Orleans taste. We really enjoyed it. Very... More

Disappointing from the start. We were seated at a table right in front of the entrance. We asked for another but they said they had a group coming, OK. The waitress was very inexperienced, plates were not set in front of us but given to one person to pass around. We were asked if we wanted bread and said yes,... More

I went here for lunch and it was not crowded so I was seated promptly. There are nice views of the marina from the dining room. The service was prompt and friendly. I had a cup of gumbo and the Greek grouper. The gumbo had a lot of seafood in it but could be a little spicier for my taste.... More

Liked the location, probably good for sunset. Showed up before 5PM on a Sunday afternoon, the bartender was busy talking to the three patrons in the bar with a duo playing at the far end of the Tiki Hut. Didn't see us I guess, but the waitress who walked right by us didn't even look at us when I said,... More

My husband and I spent a little time at the tiki bar outside of the restaurant before loading the dolphins cruise. The lady at the bar was very nice and welcoming. Then after the cruise, we ate inside and the food was delicious, the service was prompt and friendly and the view was great. Over all, I would definitely visit... More

Great place to visit for lunch or dinner in the off season or by boat in the summer! We love going in the winter season because it is not crowded. The menu is wonderful. The baskets of food are great, the shrimp salad is fabulous and a large portion. Any of the sandwiches are to die for and the ice... More
