Flipperz was an amazing experience because the food was great and the atmosphere was so fun! My family liked it so much that we ate there twice during our stay, both times were for lunch. I thought the service was quick and the waiters were very attentive. After enjoying your dinner the Flipperz gift shop is a fun place to... More

We had a large party of 9 with 4 kids so had to wait about 30 mins to be seated at the only large table on the screened porch. Good children's menu ( but no free refills) large portions. Food was ok....I had fried haddock and the black skin was still on it...I've never had fried fish this way and... More

This place was great. We stumbled on it by accident (after seeing the packed parking lot) Everything at this place was homemade and delicious. Husband's flounder sandwich was HUGE--the filet, that is. Not the bread. Myblackened shrimp were the best I've ever had. Homemade potatoe chips! Yummy. Can't wait to go back and try the desserts, but we were so... More

Atmosphere in this restaurant is FUN, lots to look at! Service is always good, although during peak season they are VERY busy, so patience is a MUST!!! Food is consistently yummy. They're speciality mixed drinks are good, but expensive! Desserts are tasty too.

This is our first time visiting Emerald Isle. We decided to do take out from Flipperz the first night we arrived. We were not disappointed. In fact, we tried to take out, again, from there tonight; but, they are closed on Mondays. We were craving their seafood bisque and homemade bread, which is hands down the best bread we have...

I eat lunch here at least once each time I visit EI. The food is always fresh and delicious. The staff are friendly and attentive. I have enjoyed their seafood bisque, their Philly sandwiches, and the Louisiana Purchase salad. The beef burgers and shrimp burger are good too.

We've been here 3 times and been impressed each time. When you first enter you might think it's just a sandwich shop but the menu is much broader than that. Order the daily special and you won't go wrong; today's included a super seafood bisque and very nicely done tilapia tacos. The "wine cellar" is just a couple of racks... More
