Was looking for something a little different and stumbled upon this wonderful place. Exceptional calamari, wings and fish tacos. Servings are generous and service was quick. We found out it had been featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives after we arrived.

I searched Trip Advisor for Cheap Eats, and found this place. It's in a strip shopping place, and you may not notice it if you weren't shopping there. We were pleasantly surprised that it was so good. The food is excellent! It's fresh, and homemade, and a great atmosphere, with a full bar. We had an appetizer of calimari and... More

Not sure why it took us so long to find Flip Flops but from our first visit it has been delightful. The place is immaculate and all servers are warm, friendly and solicitous. The food is perfect and true to their promise, on your table within 20 minutes. We eat at Flip Flops 1-2 times per week and have never... More

Bill gave us great service and highly recommended the BBQ fish tacos and the shrimp and chicken burrito. He was spot on!

Met some friends for lunch and had a 5 year old and 15 month old in tow. The menu is varied enough to please everyone at our table. The waitstaff is very accommodating, efficient and pleasant. It's a very casual and comfortable atmosphere...described as coastal cuisine with upscale taste in a tropical atmosphere. That sums it up nicely!

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.

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
