We were excited to try Flounders as we love restaurants with the fun tropical tiki atmosphere. The sand outside is fun and I like that they have live music but otherwise it's not a very good view. The water is just a canal with green mucky water and across the water is views of trash cans.. so the atmosphere wasn't... More

Always fun to go to after drums on the beach. Really good food, love the music, dancing, outdoor decor and atmosphere. Have been here several times. Would be fun with group of friends. Only thing I would suggest is lights on umbrella stands facing down to table to be able to read menus.

No place better to stop by for a cocktail by the fire pit on a chilly November beach night! The serving staff is always wonderful and the crowd is friendly and fun!

Location location ....across from the beach . That's the problem .Anything can survive here...right by the beach .. good service or not . We have tried this place a couple of times but it's not the place if you are hungry and don't want to wait forever for service. Food is mediocre at best.Won't be back.

Shrimp nachos sans tomatoes were amazing. The shrimp were tender and perfectly cooked and the portion was plentiful. The live entertainment on a Sunday afternoon was very good.

The Food we had consisting of a Hamburger and a Maine lobster Roll was very good. Others in our party had mixed reviews. When it came time to pay we needed to... More

We were in the covered outside room and although our group was not small (7), our order took an extremely long time. The waitress was gone for very long periods of time, and offered no explanation of any problems. I ordered the lobster roll and was disappointed. Although Maine lobster is not a usual Florida fare, I have at two... More

Great atmosphere if you sit outside - and don't worry if it's chilly, they have that covered! Indoors isn't really much on atmosphere, but either way, the food is excellent and the service is on point. I recommend Flounders for a great night out!

Flounders offers fresh seafood dishes to delight any appetite. From our salmon, to live Maine lobsters, New England classic clams and oysters, to southern Louisiana crayfish, we have it all. We bring the ocean to your table.
Relax...there are no worries here. Just great food, happy, friendly people, great service and plenty of drink selections. Our goal is to give you an experience that will keep you coming back time and time again.
We have something for everyone, whether it's quiet inside dining or cobblestone street dining where you can hear the music and still have great conversation. Tiki dining is in the front of the band and if the weather is cool we can close the weather curtains for your comfort and still have the feeling of outside dining. Or why not dine at a picnic table on our beach and take your shoes off?
​ Our beach has many acitvities to entertain you and the kids - play cornhole or hooker games, fish off the dock or just lounge with a cold cocktail in one of our Adirondack Beach Chairs. At night we will have a warm fire in our fire pit so you can relax and enjoy the wonderful Florida Gulf Coast.
