“Diesel Fuel is only for the brave!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

This place has great seafood and they know just how to prepare it. But they also have a "house specialty drink" called Diesel Fuel that they serve up in a plastic souvenier jar. Yes, a jar. Like a large mayo jar. It comes in several flavors. I had the one that tasted like iced tea. We drank our drinks while we were waiting for the food to arrive (which didn't take long). Then, because they were so big, we were still drinking the same drink after dinner. When we got up to leave, I was worried about making it back across the street to the hotel! It kinda sneaks up on ya! Flounder's Chowder House has great food, good drinks, live music, volleyball courts, and the beach right besides the eating area. What else could you need????

“Good for families”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We had a large group and our server handled us with ease. This is kid friendly place, even has a playground. We all enjoyed our meal choices and drinks.

“2 trips for the price of one - First and Last”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Food was ok, service was good. Experience may have been better if we'd sat outside - 92 degrees....required indoor seating ;) Inside is dark, stuffy, our table was sticky and just didn't feel light or uhm, clean. We decided to split an appetizer and move on.

“Great Food and even better atmosphere!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

They have an awesome outside play area for both adults and children. Their servings are large. We have visited there twice and both times the food was excellent. Expect to pay around $20 a plate.
