We stopped here while waiting to get into our condo. Small for sure, and probably almost always a wait, but the service was fast and the food was good.

The teens in the group wanted to go here, not my favorite place. On a Friday night we waited 2 1/2 hours for a table, were seated in a place in front of the bar a very busy place with waitresses back and forth too close to the table. It is too small for the crowd of people and very... More

The food was really good, the staff was friendly. Our server spilled an entire cup of hot coffee on me when she brought our drinks to the table. She seemed legitimately sorry about it, however I thought perhaps we could have seen a free "something" since I was covered with coffee (shirt, shorts, shoes) however not even the coffee was... More

Great little place! Food is excellent, and quick. It is a very small place, so go at 'off' hours or prepare to wait. Cute little store is attached so you can shop while you wait. Great kids menu. Great prices!

While staying in Emerald Isle we had lunch at Flipperz and could not have been happier! I got the crab cake and it was great. It was all crab with very little filler. My daughter got a cheeseburger and it was wonderful.(tasted homemade and grilled outside) We shared the lava cake and it was more than we could eat. We... More

We were told by our realty company to try Emerald Grill for breakfast but passed by Flipperz and thought we should give it a try since we have seen ads for it. We were seated fairly quickly, however, it took FOREVER for the food to come. The waitress was nice enough, but we had to ask another waitress for silverware,... More

While on vacation with my family in Atlantic Beach, there was a 2014-15 magazine advertising this place in our rental condo. We decided to go based on their full, two page ad which was basically their menu (including prices). We make the 20 mile drive to Emerald Isle for the sole purpose of eating here. Upon looking over the menu,... More

This place is nothing more than a hole in the wall tourist trap that desperately screams "fun beach times" with all the cheap decor thrown up all over the place. Everything on the menu is fried, which would not have been a problem if the plates were not over 15 dollars a person. The fish we ordered was bland white... More

My husband and I started our vacation by stopping at Flipperz. They were very busy, and when we were seated, we got our food very quickly. Everything was was good. We both loved the seafood bisque. Although we weren't blown away, everything tasted very fresh. The service was okay.

Great beach atmosphere. Great hospitality! The homemade potato chips and homemade ranch dressing were my favorite items on the menu.
