After 1.5 hour wait, it took another hour to get our order in and another hour to get our food. My $17 dream boat fish was anything but a dream. One piece of fish was about one inch by one and a half inches. One of my friends sent his chili back because it was cold, another friend sent his shrimp and grits back because they were cold. They took off 25% of our bill but what we got deserved a larger discount.

Well, let's just say something nice. We had lunch there. It was solid over done fish. Yes, fish can be over done. They don't know how to cook fish. They also had a horrible 'fancy' some kinda salad. Something weird. Not good. Took along time to get the meal, so we were ready and then disappointed. You'd thing a place on the beach would have good fish. Not Flora-Mama. I went there because they are 'famous' - but not so famous for food. So stay way from the food. We don't drink, so lemon aid was good.

Hi there,
Thank you for letting us know your concerns as they will definitely be passed along to management. May I ask, was it the Yacht Club you dined at or was it the Flora-Bama? Just want to make sure we get these issues addressed at the correct establishment.

Thanks and hope to hear back.

I thought the service was very good and the food was decent. Nothing that Wow’s you! The atmosphere was relaxed and the decor looks like something of a dive bar.

I recommend the shrimp tacos. We had great service. Do be careful with your credit card, saw a girl drop hers and it went thru the decking. They were willing to unscrew the board but she had to wait until the next day.

We have eaten here several times and the food is outstanding. The service has been fantastic. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. The seafood is fresh. A very good choice in Orange Beach.
