“Nostalgic fun”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Cool pinball machines from every era. 60's to the 90's. They have cupholders installed on them! A room of pinball machines, a bar room and a covered porch with comfortable seating. Nice fresh food menu. The salads were good. Was a fun blast from the past!

“Sure to become a local legend”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Just got off the Georgetown Loop and had worked up an appetite from all that walking. Headed to Idaho Springs for lunch and stumbled upon this place by accident. Can't say what it's like for dinner, but man, their lunch was outta this world. Fresh greens and veggie burger for the health nut of our group, and plenty of awesome burgers for the rest of. Top it off with plenty of new and old arcade games to pass the time and you have quite the place to experience.
Highly recommended, you won't be left wanting.

“Best Food In Idaho Springs!!!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

My wife and I have eaten at Flipper McGill's twice this month. Both times the food was extraordinary! What a great surprise! All of the foods are prepared fresh. All of the ingredients are fresh. And what a difference that makes!

Here are some of our favorites:

Hamburgers - Be sure to try the hamburger on a pretzel bun. Perhaps the BEST hamburger in all of Colorado! Nice and juicy, cooked to perfection.

Onion Pedals - Best I have had! Beats Outback hands down. The dipping sauce is outstanding!

Chicken Wings - Best I have had! Great sauce and super meaty large wings. This is a MUST try when you visit Flipper McGills.

Fried Okra - Battered and fried to perfection.

Colorado Poutine - French fries that are covered with fresh cheese curds, and topped with brown gravy. WOW! Wait until you try these!!!

And we get a milk shake for the road! We have tried three different flavors and each was delicious!

Flipper McGills also has a variety of beers on tap and bottled. There appears to be something for everyone.

Not to be missed is the outstanding array of pinball machines. Classics and out of the box brand new! There are titles that will appeal to all. Fun, fun, fun!!!

Barney who has waited on us both times has been friendly and provided exceptional service. Barney made some excellent menu suggestions. Thank you, Barney!
