“A regular for us.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2011

Yes this restaurant is busy, why because it's GOOD! If you don't want to wait, go to Burger King or McDonalds. I have been a loyal customer of Piranha Pat's since 1986, have never had a bad meal there, or poor service. The bar and wait staff is excellent. The food quality is second to none. Please note that they do NOT serve Vietnamese food here. The "food type" classification on Tripadvisor is incorrect.

“AVOID AT ALL COSTS!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2010

We vacationed in Pompano Beach, FL over the summer 2010 and went one night to Flanigan's to eat.

We had to wait an unreasonable amount of time to be seated and the staff was quite rude concerning the wait.

Further, once seated, our waitress was rude, disrespectful and almost threw our drink coasters at us!

The food order was wrong, it was cold and we did not receive the customary manager's visit to the table which we found to be ironic.

Upon our return home, we decided to contact the management over the experience.

After being ignored for a week from their customer representative, they supposedly forwarded our complaint of poor service and food quality to what was essentially a secretary at their main office.

After about a week of absolutely NO communication, we were told by the secretary that they would not only not refund our dinner but they would do absolutely nothing to make the matter right.

Consequently, Flanigan's of Pompano Beach, FL does not care about their customers experience, the quality of their food and service and simply ignores the customer who has a problematic experience at their establishment.

They received their payment but could care less about ethics and being professional. AVOID at all costs, I know we are not the only victims of such poor business practices.

“Cheaper version of Outback”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2010

We had a great inexpensive dinner...the tumble weed onions appetizer at $4. was super! thinly sliced fried onions with light batter and not as oily as a blooming onion. Really different. Fried shrimp at $13.95 a little spicy but very fresh. Awesome thick twirly fries and ribs. Grilled Mahi Mahi very fresh. Sports bar, very casual atmosphere. We ordered 2 desserts which were excellent. Good value for the money. A little noisy but kind of fun. Did not order any drinks but they were 50% off after 9pm which makes it nice for families to come enjoy dinner prior to happy hour. Very laid back atmosphere, not fancy at all. We stayed at Wyndham Sea Garden which was about 5 minutes away.

“Flanigans - well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2010

A good place to go for good American fare and a good atmosphere. Tommy behind the bar is a charming individual, not jealous of Fred's rating on this website at all!

“Nice family restaurant with character”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2010

We ate here twice during a five day stay in Pompano Beach. The food was really good and the place had a unique character. I can attest to the quality of the seafood in particular, although my family also enjoyed the non-seafood items on the menu. I had their signature Dolphinfish (mahi-mahi -- grilled) on one visit and Tilapia on the next. The prices were quite reasonable except for the mixed drinks. I had a margarita which they bill as being made with premium tequila, but it was half ice and therefore not good value for the cost. Stick with beer or wine.
