They offer good food at a good price, with great service. But it's just ok. If I happen to be near there again, sure I'll stop in! But I won't go out of my way.

I make an effort to visit restaurants that have been reviewed by Guy Fiere's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives", and Flip Flops is no exception. My wife and I shared a reasonably priced and satisfying bottle of "Flip Flops" Chardonnay, an order of wings, BBQ fish tacos and a "Steak Philly" sandwich. The wings and tacos were exceptional. But avoid the... More

My 2 year old was laughing sitting at our table the owner came over and told his grandmother that this is not a zoo or a farm. So we will not be back ever again. Owner was extremely rude.

My wife and I thought we would give this restaurant a try since I am a big fan of triple d. Service was great, people where very friendly. I had the fish taco and she had crab cake sand which. The food was good. Didn't leave there with that wow, we got to come back here.

As suggested by food network's DDD, I tried the BBQ fish tacos. The best ones I ever had. The dish looked so beautiful that I could not resist taking a picture. The fish literally melted in my mouth. It was perfect, neither too spicy nor too bland. My husband does not eat seafood so he tried the grilled chicken breast.... More

A friend from New York recommended this place so we took a long drive from our Norfolk airport room to be disappointed with pretty mediocre food. My buffalo wings were much too salty. The cole slaw was pretty good. The mostly young crowd was loud. I guess they were having a good time. Maybe this is a venue for youngsters.

Place had a laid back, Jamaican feel. Most memorable: Kind bar staff approached us for drinks as we waited for our table in the foyer..kudos to the service; almost unheard of in 757 for a bartender to call over to waiting food patrons for a drink order. Food was four out of five. Had the tacos from food network. Tacos... More

The fish fried and BBQ tacos were amazing!!! The place was a little hard to find bc you cannot see it from the road. If you find the Target on Upton Dr, it almost next to it on the same shopping plaza. The staff were great, especially Jennifer. We were depending on GPS and my phone was almost dead. I... More

Saw on Diners,Drive-Ins, and Dives( of course). I'm a local and just moved by Flip Flops and wanted to try it as we have all our favorite places by the beach. It seems like a really hit and miss kind of restaurant according to the reviews, but my biggest concern is that not one person responded to any of the... More
