Good food, worth the wait

There is pretty much always a wait at Flipperz but worth it. We got some drinks at the bar which was very reasonable (be sure to check out the daily specials) and waited outside. The crab legs were amazing. The seafood chowder was also very good and extremely filling.The atmosphere is a little... read more

Stopped in here on a Thursday afternoon, between 5-6pm. Had a 45 minute wait. Walked around the shop and got some fudge. Dining area is really small, which explains the wait. Drinks and food took no time to arrive at table. Fried pickles were awesome. I had crab cakes and seafood bisque. I"m not a huge seafood lover, but everything... More

This little restaurant must be very popular because we had a 45 minute wait. Not very big so it has limited seating. It was a little pricey, I thought, but with limited restaurants on the island, there is not a lot to choose from. I had fried pickles and banana peppers for an appetizer and fried shrimp for my entree... More

Told 45 minutes for a table. At the hour mark was asked again for our name and party size. Food was just ok not anything to get excited about.

The food here wasnt terrible, but the quality is way beneath the amount of money you will pay for the meal. It was a complete disappointment. Family of 4, bill was <$100 and the food was just sad. Total tourist trap.

There was quite a long wait to get in but you could wonder around the gift shop or get a drink at the bar while waiting.The waiter was very cordial and pleasant. The food was good.

We went in for lunch with a party of 9 and were seated right away. The food was ok but didn't blow your mind. The service was impersonal but not rude. I probably woulnt go back.

We got seated immediately, server took about 5 minutes to get to us. We tried to get bloody marys but it was before 12 on Sunday, not their fault,but I asked the server to bring it at noon. Ordered food with no issues, seafood bisque was very good but $10 for a bowl with no discerable chunks of seafood is... More
