I thought the fish tacos were excellent, although my sister didn't care for her shrimp po boy. The chowder was quite good. A "slice" of key lime pie is enormous -- three layers high and enough to feed six people.

Hopping place, much of it outdoors. We sat indoors to visit with cousins for the first time in many years. Service and drinks were excellent. Food was exceptionally good. Wife had blackened Mahi-Mahi and I had blackened Red Snapper. Ocean fresh seafood is always better at the beach. Roasted red potatoes were excellent, more than I could eat. Salad was... More

Flounder's is delicious and leaves you with a full belly! The seafood nachos are a must have when there. It is a huge plate filled with fish and shrimp, with melted cheese, black beans, shredded cheese, banana peppers, jalapeños, salsa and sour cream. Cannot say enough good things about the nachos. The grilled mahi nachos with fresh mango is so... More

The food was great. No wait. We sat indoors in the ac. The portions are huge! We made a mistake and ordered an appetizer and couldn't finish our entrees. We definitely will come back.

I go to Flounder's every time I go to Pensacola Beach. The portions are very generous and the food is great! There is usually not a very long wait time and you can sit inside in the air conditioning if you prefer.

This place was so awesome and tasty we wanted to go back for the second day.to dine....but the lines were too long !. Fun place and delicious fresh tasting seafood. You can dine inside restaurant or outside facing the OCEAN and listening to the sounds of the band on the outdoor stage. Unbelievable. You must visit this place.

Flounder's the experience is pretty good. It's on the beach on the sound side of Pensacola Beach and has a great play area for kids. The food was so-so. We ordered the Shrimp and Spinach dip as an appetizer and found it underwhelming as the shrimp were small and most likely frozen(i.e., certainly fresh and certainly not Gulf shrimp). The... More

Food was plentiful and good quality. We made the mistake of ordering a shared appetizer, we barely got through that and felt full before the entrees arrived. Ideal place for big appetites on a limited budget. Our server was just faultless, didn't miss anything and yet was not intrusive at all, perfect in fact. Well done! The cheap "diesel fuel"... More
