I had on my bucket list to try a chowder and a mac and cheese. Done. Enjoyed. Service with a smile. Definitely. Prices on par with what I expected. One thing I wasn't sure about. I wonder if the route off the beach really has...to come through the tables....large thong clad bottoms passing right by didn't do me any favours...More

They were not serving oysters when we went which was disappointing BUT everything else was great. Food is large in portions and came out quick! Usually it’s very crowded but we went on a Monday right at 11am and got a spot! They said they...would be getting oysters again soon. Service was great too!More

Got seated quickly, food was very good, service was friendly and the atmosphere is fun. Only small complaint is that my martini was served not that cold. It did get really busy so plan to wait if you go at peak times.

Great atmosphere, prices were reasonable and portions were amazing. I had lightly blackened flounder and it was one of the best meals I've had recently and I'm not a huge fish lover. My husband had a fish platter and loved it, too. And he's picky!...It is a busy place but worth the wait.More

Every time we come to the beach we hang out between flounders and the water. I typically drink 2-3 Diesel Fuels during the 8 or so hours we are there. My wife and I decided to actually go inside and eat lunch today instead of...our usual take-out and eat next to the water. Our waiter was wearing a name tag that indicated he was still in training, so I guess a little grace should be extended to him. My wife asked for a Diesel Fuel but wasn’t sure which one she wanted. So she asked what kind of flavors they had. The poor kid said they had “blue, yellow, kinda pink, turbo…” She asked what were the flavors and the kid just didn’t know. I’m sure he’ll get better with time. So she asked for a drink menu hoping there was something explaining the various flavors. Apparently not. They did not have a drink menu that listed their Diesel Fuel variations. They did have a table topper that had several drinks listed…but not the Diesel Fuel. I would definitely suggest Flounder’s add that. I had Coconut Shrimp and my wife had the stuffed flounder. Both were great! Food was on point. However, The service rode the struggle bus today.More

I'm really glad it's not that far of a drive for us to come here often (by boat or car). The atmosphere is awesome! Food is great too, but our favorites are the diesel fuel drinks! They're basically a double Long Island iced tea, original,...or with flavor adders--blue, mango, melon, tropical, and they even have a turbo version with Red Bull. By far, my favorite mixed drinks! Have 2, and you'll need to sit there for awhile. There's a beach for volleyball and a playground for the kids while you sober up. I always get the seafood topped burger, but everything here is good.More

Flounders was our favorite place during our stay for Spring Break! The atmosphere was beautiful in the outdoor seating even during bad weather the outdoor seating is covered and still offer gorgeous views during your stay. The calamari is life changing! All of the food...portions are HUGE and delicious! Everything we had was amazing, rainbow sushi was the best sushi we’ve ever had, shrimp boat offered so many different types of shrimp and was so massive we had to take some home, for a seafood place the steak and chicken tenders were surprisingly amazing! We also got 24 oz Strawberry Daiquiri (House Hooker) that came with a free souvenir glass. Definitely worth the money! 10/10 would recommend!More

The on-line menu looks complete but I didn't see prices either. The wife and I ate there for around $50. Hope that helps.
