I had crab cakes. My husband had shrimp. My sister-in-law had flounder. My daughter and husband had the sampler for dinner. Onion rings were good. Fish dinners were great. Samplers were so-so. Baby friendly. Service was great and fast.

This small restaurant is off tucked in with a few other businesses right off of Highway 58. We just happened to see it and stopped to have lunch on a Sunday when several restaurants were closed. We were in for a treat because the food was delicious and we were able to watch a football game to boot. I had... More

We are spending the weekend on the island and decided to grab some dinner here. We were told it was about a 20 minute wait so we spent our time browsing in the store. Once seated we were promptly served our drinks, they have some interesting mixed drinks on their list including a few with moonshine. We had the catch... More

Good staff though slowish. Food was tastes enough and we'd go back. My hubby had a Philly cheesesteak sandwich (and we're from the north) and loved it. My chicken salad was quite yummy as well. Seemed like a popular spot while waiting to check into our rental.

We are visiting Emerald Isle for the first time in 20 years. We stumbled upon Flipperz and were very pleased with our dinner! The potato skins were delicious! My husband really enjoyed his Classic Cheeseburger and my mom loved her Pimento cheeseburger. The onion rings were the best! I ate the chicken Philly, which was good but had a little... More

Even though Flipperz has been around for years, it was simply a place we ignored. Not smart on our part! This little gem tucked into a strip shopping center is darned good! Typical beach fare but at least the cooks offer the option of grilled or blacked in addition to fried seafood and fish. We tried the fried pickles and... More

Went here for a late dinner on a Saturday evening. We had a 45 minute wait so we decided to browse their store which is connected to the restaurant. They had a lot of cute stuff that was expectedly overpriced but in a tourist town you expect it. I had the Ruben with onion rings.......wish I had ordered the soup... More

My husband and I just arrived in Emerald Isle after a very long drive and wanted a quick, light meal and hadn't made it to the grocery store yet. Flipperz was recommended on our restaurant list in the condo we rented and decided to check it out. Glad we did! Food was very good, the hamburger steak was not on... More
