“Even when it's not on the menu...”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

Visited Flippers on the Bay. Seating right on the water. On this date Dolphins came to play and provided an extra highlight. The service was very professional and prompt. The setting is casual and many guests had swim wear with wraps. The bar served a good portion drink and was not over priced. The food was delicious. I had a taste for fish tacos, which I had heard were excellent. Even though they were not on the menu that night, the server worked with the chef to make it happen. Very tasty mahi mahi fish tacos. They went above and beyond! Definitely will go back again and again.

“Great view, food and drinks”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We referred to this place by our Kayak tour guide. They have a great view, great drinks, and the food is exceptional. We also loved the easy accessibility as one of us had trouble getting around. You can park right next to their lift to the restaurant deck.

“Surprisingly good find!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

My girlfriend and I dined here for lunch on Saturday, August 17th, after a manatee kayak tour down the street. It was recommended to us by the manatee guide. I had a blackened grouper sandwich, and my girlfriend had the mahi mahi fish tacos. Both were delicious! The mixed drinks were excellent, too! And the service was quick and attentive. Would definitely like to come back here the next time I'm in Fort Myers!
