Wings were good, regular fries were not. Order the sweet potato fries instead. Burgers were good. Live music on Sunday evening was nice. Great service, Our server Montana was awesome!

Had the mahi tacos, food was not that great. All 10 of us that ate here, felt that it was simply "bar food". If you want to drink and listen to music, this would be a fun place. The food however was not great.

Flounders has been renamed to SandBar Tiki Grille, with new ownership. I'm here off-season, in June, and they are definitely open.

Hi! Not sure, but like previously stated, a party of 6 or more, you may wish to call first! I've heard they can get bogged down when a big party comes. i.e.... Long wait for food.
