If you are Pensacola Beach, Flounders is one of those places you just have to do. The facility is great and the atmosphere can't be matched on the island. Flounders has a pretty generic menu for a seafood restaurant and overall there isn't anything bad about the food, it's just not that memorable. Daily drink specials are a plus and... More

Flounders is a fun place to eat. In nice weather you can dine outdoors or in. The fish tacos are some of the best I've had. The onion ring stack will feed 4 easily. Don't forget to try the Bushwackers!

We had the nachos, they were awful, full of cheese whiz type cheese (if I can use that word), I have never in my life had this awful fake cheese in a plate of seafood nachos, it was terrible, shame on this restaurant for serving this sub par food (again, if I can use that word), we also had a...

Even in January, the outside seating at Flounders is fun. The food especially the chowder and the flounder tenders were fabulous. We went back for dinner and had grouper, and it was equally as good. We ate dinner inside because of the weather and even though it was crowded, the food was delicious.

One word... Well, maybe two! ....Stuffed Flounder!!!!.... The bread and butter is worth the trip alone, but the chowder is ridiculously real and wholesome not to mention the stuffed flounder... A meal fit for a king, service that is second to none and atmosphere that just takes the cake... From a beach, to a playground, to a playground on the... More

The portions are huge the food is pretty good. I didn't like the outdoor style eating but the restaurant is kid friendly which is not attractive to me.

Friendly and fairly priced, the menu has lots of good seafood items. The chowder is excellent. Would give it five stars but our waiter was in desperate need of a bath and his body odor was very strong. Service was quick and the portions are good size. Would definately return.

Awesome food and huge portions. Definitely recommended to tourist or just plain visitors in the area. You cannot go wrong with their chowder soup and key lime pie. The rolls serve before your meal is so soft and tasty. It is best serve with your soup.

Stopped in for lunch one day and returned for dinner another day. We're very impressed with the service and the food both times. Atmosphere was very key west style and inviting. One our best picks so far in Pensacola beach.
