Location and contact

Everything at The Flounder is homemade daily from the best ingredients. We have specials on each day like Cod, Tilapia, Mahi Mahi along with the typical fish favorites. We make our own hash and BBQ. Our biggest seller is our flounder fillet, caught in the absolute best place in the world for flounder, Alaska. We have a variety of broiled seafoods. Our chicken, fish, oyster and clam chowder are all homemade and are delicious!

Ignore the outside. Ignore the decor. Ignore the hillbillies inside. Order any seafood, Lord you gotta get the hush puppies, and you'll be happy. The jumbo shrimp are fantastic. The tartar sauce is great. Hubby had the oyster/shrimp combo and still raves about it. Aside...More

We have eaten here about once a week for the last month or so. The fish is always very good. They usually have a long wait so we order to go most of the time.

Great food. Brought out of town family on a Friday night and had to wait about 30 minutes. No complaints about the wait because the service and food outweighs the wait. Good food for a great price.
