“Always wonderful!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Most will say the back water view is the reason for coming but the staff and food bring me back over and over. It can be busy during season so keep that in mind. Also sunsets are not seen from this location in the Winter as it faces north.

The food was great and the atmosphere was awesome. What a view over the bay as the light changes around sunset.

“Great outdoor dining with beautiful views of the bay”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Friendly staff, awesome water view and good food. If it's chilly, wear appropriate clothing! We would come back even if we weren't staying at Lovers Key Resort.

“Great local place”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

I eat here maybe 5-6 times a year. The location can't be beat, just across the causeway from Ft. Myers Beach going towards Lovers Key State Park if heading South. Its a grill that specializes in comfort foods. The drinks are great, the meals come quickly and they are hot, so be careful. The water views are those Million dollars type, especially when the dolphins swim by. You can beach your boat if in need of refreshments and they do.

“Beautiful Wedding Day!!!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

My Husband and I recently had our Wedding ceremony at Flippers with a lunch to follow. It was small with about 25 guests. The Manager Erik was the best!! Erik worked with us right from the beginning, making this a wonderful Day for us. Erik and his staff could not be thanked enough for how accommodating they were that day..Service is always Excellent!!! Our Guests couldn't stop complimenting everything. We would recommend Erik at Flippers to everyone. You don't need a special event to enjoy Flippers. It's Wonderful all the time.
