Love to visit this place when visiting the area. You must try the Coconut Shrimp! Everything was great. I thought it was a nice touch that the chef came out and visited with many of the quests.

We ate here on 08/10/15 for dinner.

The setting was very nice looking out over the water. I'm sorry that I can not remember our servers name but he was very friendly and helpful.

We both love scallops and that is what we ordered. They were great. Very flavorful and so tender they melted in you mouth. They were served with scalloped potatoes and spinach both of which were delicious.

Though it was possibly a little pricey but realized it was not bad when you compare it to other seafood restaurants in the area.

This was our first time eating there but will go back the next time we are at Ft. Myers Beach.

Very dissapointed. We had been here previously in March and had great food and drinks. Returned in August and it was horrible. Wife had lobster mac. Last time had lots of lobster and very creamy. This time little lobster and very dry. (Like it had been in fridge for days and warmed up). Rum runners were worst we ever had. Tasted like strait white rum with almost no fruity flavor.

Can't say enough of how beautiful at night just relaxing eating dinner at flippers. The atmosphere was romantic relaxing and upbeat. The food omg the food was out of this world so fresh delicious and flavorful I would recommend the tuna ceviche and chef Cruz paella it's to die for. I would highly suggest anyone who is in ft Myers beach to dine there u won't be disappointed not one bit.

Flipper's is located at the Lover's Key Resort property. It is an open air restaurant right on the bay...not fancy but the food is great. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. This seemed to be a local hangout so it was always busy. They will take reservations but I think you have to call the Resort to make them. It is just a fun casual restaurant and bar and I recommend it for lunch or dinner. Try the fish tacos!
