Description: Flanigan's is famous for our legendary Baby Back Ribs, and we sell over a million pounds per year. We are also known for our fresh fish selections and unique preparation options, such as Dolphin Francaise and Blackened Tuna. You can't get fresher fish unless you catch it yourself! We specialize in Fresh and Homemade menu items, and the majority of our items are made from scratch with fresh ingredients. There are no microwave ovens in our kitchens! Our menu offers a variety of options including Prime Rib, Steaks, Pasta, Entrée Salads, 10 ounce Burgers, unique Sandwiches, Award Winning Appetizers, and oversized Signature Desserts. Our portion sizes are large and our prices are reasonable. We have "Happy Hours" several times a week that feature all brands of beer, liquor and wine at up to 50% off, even on the weekends!

Came across this place as we wondered down Harding Street after a long flight from Manchester. Just wanted a couple of drinks as we had been eating on the flight but ended up having a couple of starters. Ordered the mozzarella fingers and chicken wings both of which were delicious. Eric our waiter was spot on with his service and his personality and though we were tired after a long day travelling he livened us up. We enjoyed the hour we spent so much we returned the following evening fully refreshed and ready for a full meal experience. The chicken my wife ordered and the Tilapia fish for me were again really delicious and plentiful. And the prices won't break the bank!

We chose to eat here based on recommendations from other couples staying at our resort. We visited during lunch hours and were able to take advantage of the $5.99 burger special when you bought a beverage. Beverages are served in a huge 32 oz cup that you can keep. We also ordered the firecracker shrimp appetizer which was excellent. I loved their sweet potato fries!

This experience was so bad it deserves two titles.

Our second trip to Flanigan's was definitely our last. We ordered drinks, an appetizer and two entrees at the same time. The drinks came in a reasonable time. The appetizer followed about 15 minutes later. Then the problems started.

After 40 minutes we watched tables around us that came in after us -- parties of five and six people --receive and then finish their entrees. We saw our server once during this time. He said that our entrees would be out shortly at about the 20 minute mark.

When we reached a point of real frustration, we brought the situation to the managers attention. He said the order had gone in eight minutes before and the that server told him we waited till after our appetizer to place our order. We told him we ordered it all at the same time. He did not believe us and acted as if the delay were our fault. It became clear that our server had lied to the manager to cover his mistake. This added insult to injury.

When the entrees did arrive, one of them was wrong. To make a messy story slightly shorter, we made the most of it, ate and left as quickly as possible. The manager gave us a 20% discount but no genuine apology. The server told us we would be treated "very well" when we come back. On that painful note, we paid and left.

Needless to say we will never be back. If they couldn't treat us with integrity on this trip, how can we imagine they would treat us "very well" on a return trip?

Bottom line -- I've travelled the world for decades and have never been treated like I lied in a restaurant. How ridiculous! The food isn't good enough to risk being insulted. Skip it. There are lots of truly good restaurants in this neighborhood with great service.

I appreciated surf and turf but meat is very well cooked. Draft excellent beer (irish and american). Comfortable, affordable and very enjoyable.

Nice place for a casual meal. Had some really great specials advertised in the menu. I had the Lemon and herb tilapia. In my opinion it was over cooked and although it says it comes with a sauce it did not. Honestly I think my server didn't want to admit a mix-up with sides. My cousin had the lemon pepper tilapia that had a sauce that was not mentioned in the menu. Other than that the food was tasty. The add on salad was quite large. My companions had the surf n turf and thought the steak was very good.
