Great food and restaurant. We had about 25 people in our group and everyone was happy with the food and service. Great ribeye. Play area for the kids is wonderful. Every age group liked it.

“On the beach”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Three different seating areas (inside, outside, bar). Pleasant weather so we chose to eat outdoors. Nice area on the beach. Play area nearby for the kids.

“Lack of parking makes me question going back”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Nice staff and very good food. Prices are typical of a tourist hot spot but not unreasonable. The parking kills it for me. You can spend 15 minutes looking for a parking spot.

“Flounders and snappers and Crabs”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

So, living on the beach, the area is strangely a little short on unfried seafood places. Flounders supplies, of course, fried seafood, but also, (along with likewise McGuire's owned Crabs,) fresh snapper most of the time... I've eaten the snapper grilled at Flounders and Crabs probably 30 times, and only twice had a less than excellent piece of fish, hot, fresh and delicate as snapper ought to be, a squeeze of lemon and otherwise only salt and pepper..delicious. Steaks are good, other things are "McGuires sized" and almost comical... try the Seafood Nachos.

It's a fantastic change from the ubiquitous grouper... which is apparently swimming around all the restaurants here (and which on one of the 2 bad days, they tried to pass off as the Snapper), and it's generally better than what the Grand Marlin does on the occasions it does have Snapper. BTW Have Tried to "track" my tagged fish from the ocean on the internet as described, but failed!! But it is still fresh and good.
Great clam chowder too.
Also beautiful Sunday mornings, outside, gulf front at Crabs... you can surprisingly almost always get a table on the Gulf and get nice brunch stuff.. good eggs benedict (or crab benedict) and of course... the snapper! Other seafood.. well it's fried or snow crab like at a chinese buffet.

“Best Seafood!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

This place was amazing! The food was worth the price. I recommend the fried pickles as the appetizer & the shrimp boat. For the daring individual order their famous Diesel Fuel drink made with 4 liqueurs @ the same time. We will be revisiting this place even of its just for a drink.
