A great laid-back beach eatery for tourists and locals. Every menu item has special touches and never fails to delight. The fish tacos are outstanding, among other dishes.

Where do I start.... Service was on point for a family of 4 at 5pm. Started with the Tot Nachos. Meeeh...Ok tots, but the pico, queso and peppers were great. Maybe next time we would ask for the tots super crisp. Family had 3 different styles of taco. Beef, tuna, and fried fish All were well made, ample portions and... More

I had the barbecue tacos that were featured on Drive Ins, Diners, and Dives. The table service was excellent - the right balance between checking on me and leaving me alone. The tacos were great but came immediately which made me believe they are mostly pre-made. The only thing that saves this place from getting 5 out of 5 is... More

So the atmosphere is chill. Plenty of staff. And the food was certainly above average. Not to be rediculous, but the temperature is slightly above my optimal comfort. Not a big deal, but I noticed. I had turkey club...very good. Wife had fish tacos, her and my daughter loved them. I would certainly come back. Perfect for causal lunch.

My wife and I were looking for a casual yet nice place for a quick dinner on our last night on vacation. Flip Flops was perfect. Casual atmosphere with a varied menu. The entire bar and grill was crawling with staff to make sure your needs were met. We shared the bread and butter appetizers. Simple but very good with... More

I enjoy visiting restaurants featured on Diner's Drive-in's and Dives and this one did not disappoint. While my meal was delicious, the service outshines it all. My waitress was knowledgable, efficient and super friendly! I had the fish tacos with wasabi sauce. I have had fish tacos all over the country and the wasabi sauce added a unique twist.

We have eaten here twice: lunch was meh, ok but nothing special; however, brunch on Sunday is awesome! Everyone loved the breakfast food far better than the lunch food. We devoured it! They also have a Bloody Mary bar where you can mix & top your own or happy hour priced cocktails and Bloody Mary's from the bar for the... More

The place is known for the fish tacos and especially the BBQ Fish Taco's which were tasty. I had the blackened tuna tacos which were very tasty, the tuna was very tender and mild tasting. The restaurant can get a bit noisy so for anyone with diminished hearing in crowds I would recommend going early in the dinner serving time... More

Had a party of 11 come in 30 minutes before they closed. Staff was so nice. Our waitress was amazing. Everyone in my party loved their food! From the prime rib, burgers, bbq tacos and salads, we were all blown away from how great it was. We will defintly be back if we are back through.
