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.
