We had one... More

My mom and I always visit the Tiki Bar at Flippers to get Bloody Marys whenever we come into town.Today, we had some family accompany us down there so we decided to grab an early lunch. Not only was the food spectacular (as always), but the weather was phenomenal! I highly recommend sitting outside with the perfect weather we are... More

This is a great place to eat or just go and have a drink. They have the best Bushwackers in the area. They are located right on the bay and a marina is right outside. Spots to bring your boat for lunch. Or just sit back and watch the boats coming and going. Daily specials make the price very reasonable.... More

Our friends caught some Cobia on a charter fishing trip so we went to Flippers and had them prepare the meal. Great service and the cook did an amazing job preparing the fish in 3 different ways. We will be back.

Nice place to visit by boat as the restaurant is right on the water. Nice area outside to eat and drink. Definitely a casual dining restaurant which I love. Great place for families with children. The service was good but the food was not. We had crab claws and macaroni bites as appetizers. The crab claws were a nice size... More

Food and service both excellent. I had the fried shrimp dinner and my husband had a combo with fried shrimp & oysters. Both were exceptional. They even give you free ice cream for dessert! Definitely one of our favorite places in Orange Beach.

Flippers is one of our favorite places to eat at. Eating out on the deck next to the harbor is great. The food is always prepared correctly and never had a bad meal there yet.

I ordered a the 1 pound of royal reds and my husband ordered the grouper bienville (sp?). My royal reds were pretty good. Husbands grouper was great has a mushroom sauce on it and his fries like usual delicious. Flippers give you a free little sample of ice cream when you eat there, but our waitress never offered us any.... More
