They serve a good meal at a fairly reasonable price but, the location right on the water at Bear Point Marina is excellent...especially in the evening for the superb view.

I have heard good things about this restaurant and finally decided to try it. It was a long drive and hard to find but well worth it. The food was excellent. The menu was not very large but varied, everyone in our party found something different and every dish was extremely tasty. Ambiance was superb. The restaurant is located on... More

We always like coming here but last nite was a fiasco. We are positive our waitress(her name was Rachael or Raquel was on something.....any place that allows their staff to drink or do drugs while working is not a place we will eat again

I love going to Bear Point Marina and Flipper's restaurant!!! It is definitely one of my favorite places. We used to go by boat and now we go by land. My girlfriend and I had the seafood dish with grouper, shrimp, scallops and crab cake plus a salad and baked potato. It was broiled and you simply can't beat this... More

Friends recommended this restaurant because of the great food and we were not disappointed. The catfish was excellent and so are the cheese grits. Tasty oysters and the seafood platter was also excellent. We sat outside and the marina was beautiful as the sun went down. Service was good, too. I highly recommend this place. It was a little bit... More

Was a Thursday afternoon after Zip Lining - we were hot hungry and thirsty. Out timing was great hardly anyone there - we sat on the outdoor deck right on the docks. All had a 'Bushwacker" drink - Yuuuummeee! and shared the Seafood Nachos - excellent. 4 of us we all had a little something and everyone was pleased. It... More

We didn't even get a table. The manager "We Think" stated after my wife an I walked in that the girl that is supposed to be here waiting customers she's in the kitchen. So we waited patiently around 10 to 15 minutes and was never seen or spoken to. Overall would not recommend for unprofessional service.

We had a good meal here. Two of us had the broiled platter with grouper, shrimp, scallops, and a crab cake. It was all good, just small on the portions. The others had grouper sandwiches which they enjoyed. It was nice to get complimentary ice cream that was really good and we split a bread pudding that was great.

We requested to be seated in the bar area so that we could watch a football game while we ate. I ordered the fried catfish meal. It had 3 large pieces of perfectly fried fish on top of a plate of okay fries. The hush puppies were good, but the cole slaw was nothing special. The service was friendly and... More

We went here due to seeing good reviews and good prices on the menu listed above which after getting there the menu I guess is out dated because it was about $3 - $4 more than what is listed on the menu here. It is out of the way due to being on the bay. We arrived around 630pm and... More
