First time here and we'll be back. We had a group of 7 and were promptly seated. Server was very good as was the food. Average price for menu items would be $22. Portions were just right. Location and atmosphere is outstanding.

Food and service was excellent. It is a bit out of the way from the main strip being located in one of the marinas but it was well worth it

We picked this place on our vacation because of its proximity off the main strip of restaurants and the fact they offered the ability to cook our fresh catch from that same morning. We got right in with a group of 18 around 6:30 on a Tuesday night. The service was good and the food was cooked very well. We... More

This is our second time to Flippers. We go to Gulf Shores, AL as a family every year and we went last year, we sat outside which wasn't a good idea because bugs were falling into food from the above lights. Food was delicious so we gave it another go this year. Once again, food was delicious but they sat... More
