Great food , fun atmosphere for the kids and not too expensive. Fast service and pretty good menu choices even for the non sea food eaters.

This is where all the locals go to eat and definitely a restaurant you want to try out. When you are there grab yourself a Diesel Fuel drink, you get to keep the glass. The atmosphere is wonderful, the staff is superb, and the food is amazing!!!

The food is still fresh and seasoned tasteful, not overbearing. Everyone greets you with a GENUINE smile, and the ambiance is relaxing. The Diesel Fuel drink continues to be potent.

Flounder's just plain holds our hearts. Offering such a classic beach experience, this place always remains consistent in service, taste, atmosphere/ambiance and it's all GOOD. They are situated on the sound side of the Gulf and have a wonderful dock, volleyball court (in the sand no less!), children's play park, a nice gift shop, Their menu is quite a nice... More

I thought the fish tacos were excellent, although my sister didn't care for her shrimp po boy. The chowder was quite good. A "slice" of key lime pie is enormous -- three layers high and enough to feed six people.

Hopping place, much of it outdoors. We sat indoors to visit with cousins for the first time in many years. Service and drinks were excellent. Food was exceptionally good. Wife had blackened Mahi-Mahi and I had blackened Red Snapper. Ocean fresh seafood is always better at the beach. Roasted red potatoes were excellent, more than I could eat. Salad was... More

Flounder's is delicious and leaves you with a full belly! The seafood nachos are a must have when there. It is a huge plate filled with fish and shrimp, with melted cheese, black beans, shredded cheese, banana peppers, jalapeños, salsa and sour cream. Cannot say enough good things about the nachos. The grilled mahi nachos with fresh mango is so... More

The food was great. No wait. We sat indoors in the ac. The portions are huge! We made a mistake and ordered an appetizer and couldn't finish our entrees. We definitely will come back.
