“A local favorite?”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Monday night in Orange Beach and many good restaurants are closed. Condo staff recommended Flippers - said it is a favorite among the locals. Well, back home a local favorite is a hot dog joint, so I'm not big on local recommendations. But in this case the recommendation was spot-on. We ate outside on the deck on the water - very nice. The outdoor bar was adjacent and there was a small semi-rowdy band playing that was a real treat even to my 64 yr old ears - got me up dancing. There were six of us and everyone raved about their food. Wife had crab cakes and enjoyed them. I had a fried seafood platter to try a little bit of everything and it was delicious. Oysters were particularly good. Even the hush puppies were perfect - lightly fried, golden brown, no grease, with a certain sweetness. Only complaint was a watery over-priced martini.

“Waterfront Seafood in Orange Beach”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Flippers is located on Canal Road at Bear Pointe Marina right on the bay. They offer waterfront seating seasonally. They have live music and an outdoor bar. The Cold Mill Dolphin Cruise fleet is also located here. I'm not sure if they still do it but at one time they gave a voucher for a free slice of Key Lime Pie at Flippers with a paid Dolphin Cruise. If you like fish be sure to try the Blackened Grouper Bienville. A complimentary cup of homemade ice cream is served after your dinner. Very kid friendly.

“Love it!!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

This was a really great restaurant! It was right on the water. The good and service were both great, but the views take the cake. I absolutely loved it! We even saw a dolphin. And the price is not bad at all. $51.70 for two people. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
