Good food, good service

Great food. Better than your average eatery. Food came out quickly. Food was hot. Fries were great. Hamburger had a great flavor to it. Chicken strips were fresh. Atmosphere was inviting and pleasant with a Tiki feel to it. Very clean. Will definitely go back. Closed on Monday's

We have been visiting Flipperz for more than 12 years all year round. The food has always been good. Their own homemade seasoning gives a great flavor to the fried seafood. The dining area is small, though there is a porch area that is somewhat sheltered from the weather though it is not cooled. During the summer the wait times... More

Flipperz is an Emerald Isle must! Delicious food, great service and a beachy atmosphere. The food is always consistent and full of flavor. Kendall's French Quarter salad is one of my favorites with the yummy Cajun grilled chicken and a piece of fresh baked bread- melt in your mouth! Coming from an EI local, make sure you stop in for...

Our company ordered take out and I had the Louisiana Purchase salad with the blackened shrimp and I have to say it was one of the best salads I have ever had!! Those shrimp were DEELISH and the greens were all so fresh. I frequent this restaurant and have always had great luck with all of my meals. I will... More

We've been going to Flipperz since it opened in 2001! (Before Flipperz, it was CDs, another great burger place!) Our family has signed most of the art work now hanging from the ceiling! The service is always excellent and the staff super friendly. The food is consistent so you know your favorites will continue to be your favorites. My all... More

Food was good, not great but prices were very high. $40 for lunch for 2, no dessert. Iced tea was almost $4 a serving - off season! Not impressed.

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat. We both got the grilled cheese. It comes with 3 types of cheese - swiss, cheddar and the third I can't remember, possibly gouda. It also comes with a mango chutney, but since I'm allergic to mangos, I got mayo instead. It also has bacon on it. It comes with either fries... More

We didn't eat there but the store has lots of cute things! Jewelry, tshirts, fudge, and lots of monogrammed items. Wish we would have gone in earlier as it takes 2 days for monogramming. They are willing to ship to you!

Great food. Great atmosphere. Great Service. Great music in a casual setting - especially on Sunday evenings in the screened porch. FLIPPERZ is the greatest community supporter and they also happen to have great food. NOT TO MENTION a VERY NICE Shop attached for your special gifts, T-Shirts, Hats , Bags etc.!!!
