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

The food overall was great, but the service severely lacked. We got in pretty quick, and ordered fine. However, we went majority of the dinner without drinks. The waitress only came to our table about 3 times overall. Would recommend for food but definitely not for service.

We loved the food, service was very good, we sat outside no bugs was very pleasant. We had gumbo, blackened chicken nachos, coconut shrimp & southwestern grouper. We all tried each other's food and it was the best we had on this trip to Orange Beach. We will be back.

Flippers has a Terrific vie of the Harbor, while enjoying tasty drinks & their Grilled Shrimp Skewers were Delish!! Our party of 6 sat outside by the Harbor, but we could not sit together because of our number. The Waitress was kind & prompt. We will definitely go back, but with a smaller group. Shrimp Skewers are a Must Try!!!

If possible, I would give this place a negative rating! We were not greeted when walking in. Several staff looked our way but none smiled, just looked annoyed. There were several tables occupied outside, but only one in the inside dining area. We didn't know if we were suppose to seat ourselves or wait to be seated. We waited. After... More
