Flippers was a good restaurant, the seared tuna appetizer was fantastic and the potato soup was great as well. The ribeye was decent as good as one might expect for a family-grill restaurant. Service was good. Food was a bit pricey but not extreme. Good...More

We had a party of 9 and they seated us on the covered porch, which was perfect since we had kids with us. The shrimp basket, hush puppies & margaritas were all delicious! The seafood was fresh and the margaritas weren't prepared using a pre-made...More

We have been coming to flipperz since they opened. Our names are on a couple of the signed animal plaques in the ceiling. The food is always good. The prices have crept up, but still reasonable. The best dish this time was a side of...More

There were 4 of us and we had a variety of items. Cheeseburger, chicken tenders, steak and a chicken breast special with the total being around $50.00 Service was OK Difficult to get drink refills but all in all we enjoyed our meal

I give this place one star for many reasons. Waited forever to even have a waiter come over to begin with. Excessive wait for a hamburger and fries of 45 minutes. Hamburger was dry and tasteless. Had to wait another 15 minutes to even get...More

Food was average, a bit pricey. The restaurant was loud. We got seafood, but think I would have been better off with a sandwich.

We enjoyed dinner here one of the nights we were on the island. All of our meals were fantastic. One of us got seafood, one got steak, and a sandwich. All food was wonderfully prepared, and yummy.

This was a quaint family friendly place. Good selection on the menu and lots of fun drinks/cocktails. The price was also right and it's a hop skipnand a jump from the Islander Hotel and Suites.

I don't believe they offered a gluten free menu, my wife had cheese fries, which was taking a risk that they weren't cooked in the same oil as breaded fish or chicken. She didn't have a reaction so we think the fryer was... More
