“Excellent Food, Good Prices, Super Service!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

You can't beat the Flamingo for 8 Minute Express Lunches for $8! This is a full lunch, with salad! Quick service, fresh food, nice atmosphere! On English Bayou, 61st Street on the Island, Nice outdoor seating on the water, or plenty of roomy seating inside! Evening meals are equally excellent food and good prices! Very good mixed drinks! Whether you're visiting or a local, this is a nice and friendly place to eat, with good food! Large tables for groups, small corners for those who want it oh, so quiet! Then plenty of tables in the middle for those who want to see and be seen! I've never been there without seeing someone I know! Very popular with us locals!

“Excellant!”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

We had dinner here and the seafood was delicious. The prices were very reasonable. We enjoyed the photo booth on the way out. It automatically posts your pic to their Facebook page. Very cool!

“Delicious food! The catch-phrase of $8 in 8 minutes wasn't accurate”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The food was very delicious and the service was good! However, their catch-phrase of "$8 in 8 minutes" wasn't accurate, it was more like 20 minutes to get our food.

“Horrible service and food just ok.”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

Was so excited to have good seafood today. Went straight there with my mouth watering. It took 10 minutes to get our drinks and we had to ask for our bread. Flamingo oysters were recommended by waitress and they were burnt and not very tasty. She took them off my ticket which was nice.

“First Impression Re-visited”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Apparently management has changed and so has the quality of the food, service and overall atmosphere. Have eaten here numerous times and have watched the decline. After our last visit, I will not be back anytime soon. Very disappointed.
