Hit the spot!

After a long day of being on the road, I just wanted a lite lunch and yes, it had to be seafood. Almost did not go here, because one of the reviews said everything was fried! I'm glad I took a chance, the blacken Mahi over chef's salad hit the spot! The portion size was excellent, about 7 oz... read more

Great meal and good atmosphere. Service was excellent. My husband and I ate dinner - he had ribeye which he said was very tender and great flavor. I had sald with shrimp on it and seafood bisque - both were great! We also indulged in dessert. Cheesecake is homemade and was excellent!

It was a small place, very casual, but oh the food was awesome! Great seafood: we ordered the shrimp and crab cakes. Yummy!

Very good crab cakes, and enough food that I took the second one home for lunch the following day. Excellent fried okra. Nothing fancy on the menu, but what they have is good.

Casual restaurant with a local feel. Food was interesting, fresh and well prepared. We were in town for a week and this was our favorite dinner of the trip.

The a/c was out! We waited longer than we expected and the a/c in the store was not working so that was miserable. When we did get seated it was still warm but the shrimp was delicious and the sweet tea was divine! It is a small place so go early to avoid waiting.

Flipperz is awesome. Very good food with great atmosphere. Best Prime Rib on the Island. Very friendly and efficient staff. Also, their shop is very nice!

We have eaten here over 6 times over the past 4 years. The food is consistently good and sometimes it is even great. The service is consistently average; so, don't come looking for a great experience. The wait for service is sometimes too long. Everyone is friendly though; so, perhaps it is meant to be a slow and laid back... More

Shrimpburger, Beach Bum sandwich, and kids hotdog meal were awesome. Best food we had on our vacation; definitely coming back!

I visited here with my family. For a restaraunt this close to the water I was expecting a few more choices of non-fried fish, but I did find and order the fish tacos and they were excellent. Service was good and they accomodated a party of 17 on pretty short notice. The place was busy and the food really good,... More
