difficult parking but great place to sit at the water, eat ribs and drink. We saw Manatees swim by, watch all the boats and the water taxi stops here.

So, we had planned on going to Shooters, but it wasn't opened yet, we decided to go to Flip Flops. It was kinda dirty. Drinks were cheap and good. Waiter was friendly, but brought me the wrong drink twice. I did not correct him or send it back. I had a half rack of baby back ribs and they were just okay. Seemed like they might not have been the freshest or something. They were fall off the bone, but should have been a bit jucier. They had a pasty texture to them. This place is on the intercoastal, which is a plus for ambiance. I would not go there for dinner again, but I would go for drinks and appetizers. For the location, it was very reasonably priced.

We went to this bar to wait for the water taxi, which pulls right up to the dock of this restaurant located on the intercostal highway. Just a really cool, laid back, casual beach feel to it. I did not have a chance to eat here but sitting on the dock with a drink made me feel real good!

Ordered two $7 meals on a Sunday special and the waiter asked if we would like either French fries or sweet potato fries.
We were charged $7 each extra.

We will not go back plus no parking

We took our boat to Flip Flops on the ICW. We had been very excited to try this place and when company was in town we stopped in. The view is impossible to beat! The boats are going under the bridge and we even had two manatees hang out by the dock for about 20 minutes! They had live entertainment which also made it enjoyable. Unfortunately, our server was terrible. We had looked up the menu on our ipad on the boat before arriving and we were told by our server that none of the specials on their website existed and that he had never heard of them. After that, he got an attitude and really affected our positive experience. We were disappointed, especially because we had guests with us. Hopefully they can get a better staff in there because it really is a cool place for a burger and cocktail.
