I ordered a fried flounder dinner for takeout. According to the menu this included a salad and home made potato chips. It was awful . Really. Chips were so heavily salted as to be inedible. Flounder overcooked and also inedible. And no salad in the...More

We have been going to Flipperz for years. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everything I have had here has been tasty. They offer seafood selections, as well as Burgers and salads. The atmosphere offers a great beachy feel.More

Our party of 10 was not impressed with the food or the service. Felt the service was slow and the quality of the food was below standard for a seafood restaurant at the beach.

We went to Flipperz on a Thursday evening during our vacation to EI. The food was pretty good- my husband got the pork chop which was good. A bit pricy for smaller portions. Kids meals were kid friendly, $4 for pb&j but that just comes...More
