Really enjoyed the views on the patio. Food was delicious. Loved that the fish and fries were not greasy. Portion sizes were decent. No complimentary dinner rolls like most restaurants in the area. Service was good. Loved the free homemade ice cream. Our waitress gave us the option of chocolate syrup or plain on our ice cream and after we... More

This place offers so many different types of entertainment and a great view. Ashley was our waiter and she was a very friendly girl and very attentive to our wants. 3 in our party had a blackened fish sandwich. Very tasty and great fries. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

We were staying in a nearby condo & enjoyed having a late lunch here. We sat outside and enjoyed the scenery....beautiful boats. I had the grilled grouper sandwich with slaw. It was really good & a nice portion. My husband had the grilled shrimp salad, good as well. The prices are a bit high, but overall we enjoyed it.

On Saturday, we stopped at Flippers for lunch. I had the seafood pasta and my wife had the grouper sandwich. Both meals were excellent. The view of the marina was also great.

Our goal was to get there to see the sun set. The captain of our tour boat recommended this place. It was in a marina. Unfortunately we got there after dark. We were going to sit outside but there was a very loud musician in the tiki bar and just not what we wanted for dinner so we sat inside,... More

Just visited last night, so the sweet memory of the tasty shrimp skewers that were in special served with fresh vegetables and rice, is fresh in my mind. Our group is usually pretty lively, but when the food came, we all went completely quiet, with the occasional audible "mmm". Waiter was awesome, and though quite busy, very attentive. Bartender also... More

This is a great place, with amazing view. Three of us had pasta dishes and they were fantastic, however one had a burger basket and it was like any old frozen burgers.

My wife and I decided to try the early bird menu on February 11th 2017. We were quickly seated (we chose the patio). My wife ordered the Shrimp Bienville Pasta and I chose the Grilled Mahi Mahi and fries. Both came with a side salad. My wife really enjoyed her dish and said she would order it again. My Mahi...
