Description: Flanigan's is famous for our legendary Baby Back Ribs, and we sell over a million pounds per year. We are also known for our fresh fish selections and unique preparation options, such as Dolphin Francaise and Blackened Tuna. You can't get fresher fish unless you catch it yourself! We specialize in Fresh and Homemade menu items, and the majority of our items are made from scratch with fresh ingredients. There are no microwave ovens in our kitchens! Our menu offers a variety of options including Prime Rib, Steaks, Pasta, Entrée Salads, 10 ounce Burgers, unique Sandwiches, Award Winning Appetizers, and oversized Signature Desserts.

“Never a bad meal here”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

My husband and I eat here every time we visit the area (at least once a year) and every time the food has been fabulous. The place has an earthy, sports bar type atmosphere with friendly, unpretentious staff. They are always willing to go over the menu options in detail and make suggestions. I always get a fish dish. This time the tuna steak sandwich grilled rare with black beans and rice. It was perfect! My husband had the grilled dolphin with curly fries...again perfectly cooked and scrumptious. It was St Patrick's day and they had half price beer all day. The manager checked on the patrons in a sincere and unobtrusive manner. The service was good as usual. This is perhaps my favorite place to eat in the area. Our out of town friends that we talked with feel the same way and also dine here when in town. I will come back again and again!!

“Odd service considering their Corporate Office is right behind them”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Food seems hurried and sometimes it has been under cooked. Flanigans is known for their wings, but of the four times I have been in this specific one three times the wings have tasted old or weird. Please enjoy your wings and food at another Flanigans.

“Not expensive good food”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

I have been to Flanigans many many times over the past 15 years. Consistent good food at good prices. A big menu with everything, but the highlights are certainly ribs, wings, burgers, and fish sandwich. It can get busy at nights especially on weekends, but there is a reason for that. The atmosphere is casual but relaxed and festive. Do not miss lunches. Enjoy!

“Not as good as last year.”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Last year we ate there twice and loved the food. We were looking forward to eating there again. Maybe they had a bad day, this year the food was very slow, just ok tasting compared to great tasting last year for the same meal. The dirty rice didn't taste good so I didn't eat it. The waitress was friendly, the manager was very friendly and came to the table to apologized for the slow service.

“Great place for a beer, wings and ribs”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We were driving to the hotel and saw this place and the parking lot was full so we thought the food must be good.

This is a terrific neighborhood restaurant/bar. Our waiter, Matt, was terrific. he told us about their specials for the day as well as his recommendations.

The ribs were terrific. The barbecued chicken was just as good. The food and drinks were also priced right and having all the tvs there so you could watch the game was an added bonus.

Really enjoyed our meal there and hope to come back when we are in S FL.
