Wonderful Service, and Great Food

To be fair, after spending the entire day kayaking, probably any food would have tasted good.. but Flipperz had amazing food! We were seated with no wait, and the wait staff was very attentive, polite, and professional. We are locals, and we will definitely be back!

Great sandwiches, seafood, fun little gift shop, fudge shop, something for everyone. We just discovered it a couple years ago, and it's becoming a family tradition.

Flipperz does everything right. The staff is friendly, welcoming, attentive, quick and courteous. The premises are clean. In fact, my husband said the men's room was one of the cleanest he has ever used. We tried the seafood bisque after hearing another patron rave about it. I have to say that it was one of the best I've ever had--and... More

Only been here for breakfast, but the omelettes are huge!! They are so good, fresh and seasoned well. I love that it is attached to a store so if there is a wait you can browse around. Homemade fudge too!

With the best shrimp burgers on the island they have excellent salads too. Very small place with excellent fudge to take home. Be sure and get their homemade chips. Excellent food with super staff. Very friendly.

Wanted to try out because of all the great reviews. No one was there to seat us when we arrived then someone came out from the shop and told us to take any of the available booths. We sat and were totally ignored by the wait staff. Two other groups came in before we hailed a staff member and ask... More

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

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
