WOW - the staff here is tremendous. All the staff worked together to make sure your table was picked up & checked to see if you needed anything. Not just your waitress but all of them. Our waitress even took the time to chat, wow,...More

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

This is a great place! It doesn't necessarily look like much from the outside, but you don't want to miss what's inside. Food is great. Definitely try out the Fried Pickles and Peppers, they are SO good. That was just the appetizer. There is also...More

For a reasonably priced, high level fast food dinner, this is the place. Service very good, staff always friendly. Some nice craft beers too. Also, live music on weekends. Start outside with a cocktail and then head inside for dinner. It gets a little crowded...More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. They don't have a lot of room in the dining area. The sandwiches were pretty good. They even have gluten free options which is always a plus. Their homemade sourdough bread was well done. Would stop again for lunch!

Flipperz is a decent place to get a bite. Friendly and attentive service. Overall mediocre food. Firecracker shrimp rocked. Hush puppies had great texture though not much flavor. Appetizer sampler was meh. Entrees were mostly sandwiches. Nothing to write home about. No one knew how...More

I don't believe they offered a gluten free menu, my wife had cheese fries, which was taking a risk that they weren't cooked in the same oil as breaded fish or chicken. She didn't have a reaction so we think the fryer was... More
