Flipperz has a great beach-y atmosphere and tasty food. It is clean and the staff is friendly. We visit mostly for breakfast, but have been for lunch as well and have never been disappointed.

A 30 minute wait for seating but it's not a spacious restaurant, so understandable. Our hostess Darby, was incredible! Sat us down then she took drink orders promptly and on return food orders were taken. Amazing dinners and her hospitality was just great! All the...More

We love Emerald Isle. It has been our happy place for 45 years. We retired to Florida two years ago so it has become harder for us to come to the Isle. We are trying to work in all of our favorite restaurants from years...More
