Great place to eat right on the water while watching the boats go by. They have the best baby back ribs. Have never had a bad meal there.

We ate here because it was on the inter-coastal waterway. The food was very good. Service was excellent. We came on a Sunday night. We were able to eat out on the edge of the restaurant near the dock. Very cool that the water taxi pulls up right next door. I am sure the view during the day would be... More

We'er locals. This was our last and final attempt to patronize Flip Flops. Walked in at 6:00 pm on Sunday; place was not busy. After sitting down we stopped a server asking for menus. When he returned we each ordered a drink. That was the last time anyone came to our table. The 2 gentlemen sitting next to us looked... More

The waiter didn't want to help us. Acted like he didn't want us there. Took forever to get the menu. Didn't bring napkins and silverware. Wouldn't make eye contact. Didn't ask if we needed anything. Basically stayed away from our table because he was busy hitting on some women in the table near us. We left as soon as we... More

The service was so bad the music and location was good, food is nothing special. We ask half chicken to our little boy so they brig only fries and then chicken with fries. At the end they wanted to charge dobble for the kids fodd... Waste our time...

Went for the first time on a Sunday for the "tea Dance" and Impersonators.... The food was just ok - nothing to write home about. Basic & cheap. But the Lack of staff, the ridiculous wait to get a drink, and the poor ventilation (hot as hell) - Ruins the place! You have to wait & wait for a server,and... More

Nice location, hamburger is correct but the service was disastrous. A poncey waiter started by forgetting to bring half of my order and finished by short-changing me by $5. And he took it angrily when I claimed my money back! Upgrade needed.

Never been here before but was recommended by friends. Staff was busy and some of them not too pleasant to deal with. Finally got a table. They have a sign posted to seat yourself, but manager was taking names for a wait list. Manager would cuss and huff under his breath. Our server was nice but forgetful. Served iced tea... More
