We found this restaurant by asking someone at Alabama Dolphin Cruises his favorite restaurant. He said if you want a good deal and great food go to Flippers. It sounded like a great place if the locals love it. When we arrived we knew instantly it was a hidden gem. We started out eating inside and after a few minutes of looking around outside we knew it would be more fun outside. They have two stories of tables and chairs on dockside patio where all the boats come into the harbor and there was live music at the outdoor tiki bar. The food was awesome and affordable. My daughter loved the chicken alfredo and my husband said the seafood platter was like home cooking. All in all it was a great experience with a friendly staff and great atmosphere. We even ate next to a Heron on the dock who let us take its picture and we were told was a regular.

We stopped to eat here before our dolphin cruise. The service was nice, the food great, and the wait for food short. It was neat to look out at water while eating. The free ice cream was great! Would definitely recommend! We plan to return!

A little expensive, but it was more than worth it. We got the grilled shrimp, shrimp alfredo, grilled mahi topped with sauced seafood (special), and the fried seafood platter - no complaints. For desert we had free ice cream and key lime pie (delicious!). The service was satisfactory and with good speed. there was a pretty view of the marina and a nice dog-vs.-heron joust. I am also glad we went on their dolphin cruise, "The Cold Mill Fleet", which was also truly amazing.

Food was excellent, staff was great, setting awesome. My hubby ordered a Flipper Burger and it was so big he was stuffed but he said it was great. We had a party of 7 and everyone enjoyed their food even my little picky 7 year old. They had fried crab legs and she loved them. No complaints just try it after your Dolphin Cruise with Cold Mill Fleet Dolphin cruise (see my review). Even if you do not do the dolphin cruise (but I highly recommend it) just go to Fliippers and try their food. Thanks to our waitress Michelle for great service, it was her 21st birthday and she was working and extremely polite and courteous, great customer service, hope you did not party too much on Sunday.
