We ate there two days in a row. We split the shrimp boat meal and bacon cheeseburger and still could not finish off the fries either day. Good fast service and food and close to our motel. The kids had a play ground area and they also had volleyball area and chairs in the sand by the bay. Everyone seemed... More

Had been in Pensacola for two days already, and had gone to a few seafood restaurants that we thought were overpriced for nothing special, not to mention were not little kid friendly. We came to Flounder's based on the recommendation of a hotel desk clerk, and was pleasantly surprised. Although the line to get in was long and it was... More

Looked forward to visiting Flounder's again on our 2nd trip to Pensacola Beach. Really great spot, delicious food & terrific views when seated in our favorite spot in the covered dining area outside facing the bay. The signature chowder is a real favorite, we even took a quart of it back to our condo to enjoy on college football Sat... More

Ate dinner here with my husband. Good food. Great service. Fun atmosphere! He got the red snapper and really enjoyed it. I got the stuffed flounder and also really enjoyed it. It was quite a bit of food, so I wasn't able to finish it, so my husband had a few bites and thought it was pretty good. The seasoned... More

We had a group of 25 people, they seated in one area at multiple tables which worked out just fine. Quick service, quick food delivery. If you are really hungry, this is the place to head to as there is more food on your plate that you can imagine. My wife and I split a sea food shrimp platter and... More

We returned to Pensacola beach this year and made Flounders our first stop, as per last year food and service was great, sat outside and enjoyed the wonderful view, you do have to wait for a table so be prepared but they work very hard to accommodate you as quick as possible, see you next October 2017
