According to a recent (7/18) review....you are being warned off! Everybody has a different opinion. We went yesterday, 7/20, yes it was crowded, yes we waited around 45 min, yes it's a small establishment BUT it was big on flavorful dishes excellent wait staff and decent prices. 2 of us split the Seafood Combo the rest of us had -...

We waited over a hour and half for a table. While eating, we drank half price margaritas which were WONDERFUL but after being seated (well over a hour and half) the food was TERRIBLE. I'm writing this review to save people from spending their time and money. Atmosphere was great. Food was horrible (so horrible that I'm writing my first... More

This is not the same flipperz I'm used to going to. I am a regular and within the last couple months they have changed. The portion ate smaller the prices are higher and the atmosphere isn't the same. Can someone answer this cause they lost me as a customer I won't be back and I raved about this place

We decided to drive from Atlantic Beach to Emerald Isle, to try out this restaurant and we were not disappointed at all. It was one of our favorite places during the week. Well worth the drive! It is very similar to one of our other favorite places at the beach, Snapperz! The food was excellent and their selection of beverages... More

Love this place. Quaint little family restaurant with a great atmosphere. Has a gift shop built in with lots of original items and crafts. Not the foreign junk you see in all the chain gift shops. Seafood was delicious and service was excellent. We will be back!!

enjoyed dinner at Flipperz. Food was good but they seemed to be having a problem with the ac was uncomfortably hot in the dining room. Service was good, staff was on top of drink refills. Alcohol seemed overpriced for what you got since the drinks were watered down quickly with the restaurant temperature.

This is my 2nd review of this restaurant. I was a little disappointed this time as the food was just a little warmer than room temp and not near as tasty as it has been in our previous 10+ visits. The wait was normal given the time of year and service was excellent as always - perhaps a new chef?

We went with 8 in our party so the wait was a little bit longer than the average on a Friday night. Entertainment outside kept us happy along with the half priced margaritas! Waitress was good and food was OK. Kids ages 9 to 13 were happy. Gratituity was included in our check.
