We ate here last year and really enjoyed it. We brought my sister and her family to try it this year. I can honestly say, last year's visit far exceeded this visit. It was still good, the server was attentive and the food was good. It just wasn't as good as the previous visit. We had salads, fried shrimp plates,... More

Awesome cheesesteak, great food, decent prices. The potato skins are also delicious. Nice in-store shop too.

We ate at Flipperz two years ago and it was very good. Last night we went back. Were told an hour wait, but it ended up being only 35 minutes. The food is very overpriced for what you get. We ordered the fried green bean appetizer -- which is delicious -- but is $8 for a very small basket. My... More

Our family of 6 had a good meal. We arrived on our bikes around 11:45. We were told there would be a short wait so the kitchen could catch up from the lunch rush. I looked into the dining room to see only 7 of the 13 tables occupied. Most of those were 2 tops. We pointed this out to... More

My daughter and I got the K.T.’s Mahi Wrap & Marinated Grilled Chicken sandwich and both were delicious! The outside seating faced an area that had games you could play, and there were families waiting for their tables playing games and having fun. Nice place to eat after a day at the beach; not too fancy, but not a hole... More

We have been here a few times and every time it has been a great experience however there are not very many tables available so during peak months plan your meal either really early like 4pm or really late.

Flipperz is a great little place with very good food - what really shines is the service. Emerald Isle is a touristy place, with people coming and people going every week during the summer. The people at Flipperz were extremely friendly, The service really was amazing.

Great little gift shop to look around in, while you wait. We went for lunch and the wait was fairly long. Service was slow. The food was average. We were expecting more for a little local place with great reviews...

The meal was pretty decent but seemed to be a little steep for two people. For a quick bite to eat this place is fine but you'll end up getting hungry again fairly quick.

Our family went there for breakfast one day & back for dinner the next. It is a small place with limited seating, but the servers were very friendly and the food was good. The eggs at breakfast were prepared correctly and they have an awesome omelet. For dinner we had chicken & burgers. Both were worth what we paid. We... More
