LOTS TO LIKE-SEE & DO

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.

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

I enjoyed the tasty gumbo and house salad at Flippers. Unlike most gumbo, this gumbo did not burn my mouth with black pepper. I could actually taste the fish and shrimp in the mix. Highly recommend the gumbo served here. The salad was freshly made and crisp. My wife rated the bread pudding she ordered as average. I noticed the... More

We have eaten here many times and it is always good. Good menu, something for everyone. Casual. Summer is very busy and there will be a wait, winter is obviously much slower and we walk right in and sit down. They close at 9:00 pm year round. Crab claws, pasta, fried seafood, broiled seafood were all good. Nachos can be... More

Flippers is located on the pier where Cold Mill Dolphin Cruise is. When we finished our cruise we wanted something quick to eat. They have the standard sandwich menu, burgers, chicken sandwiches. Our waiter was friendly and the service was quick. My children ordered burgers and I had a chicken sandwich. They do have homemade custard as a desert.

Flippers is located in a marina and has a great outdoor deck. We arrived with our dog and realized we had forgotten his leash. It was a quiet day on the deck so we were allowed to have our dog with us while we ate. We really like fish reuben but only the standard reuben was on the menu and... More

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
