The sushi is amazing! The seafood nachos are also great and enough for an entire family. The flounder chowder is also another favorite, which can be an appetizer or a side item to your meal. I have been several times in the past couple of months and plan to go again soon!

On the water. Big restaurant with mostly outdoor seating plus beach volleyball. It is a young crowd with lots of families (they have a playground too) with specialty drinks. No craft beers. Heavy on the fried food side and the waitress did tell us they fry everything in the same oil which was helpful since I am allergic to shrimp.... More

Get the chowda. It does not come out piping hot, but luke warm so you can dip right in. The tables are not the cleanest, but it is a beach bar, so you get what you would think you would get at the beach. Lots of amenities and they have a playground for kids.

I recommend getting the chowder and then going to a different place for your main dish. After a couple of excellent meals at other restaurants, this one was disappointing. The fish ( just called white fish) and oysters were nothing we couldn't get at a Capt D's up north. The French fries were good. It was a little more expensive... More

We ate here twice this week and we were not disappointed. We had the chowder which was amazing. We indulged in the stuffed flounder and the flounder strips. Dedrick and Rachael are amazingly attentive bartenders. We asked for Key Lime Pie to go which we enjoyed so very much.

Stopped in here for an afternoon drink and to enjoy the fun outdoor waterfront atmosphere. Where else can you take a seat overlooking beach volley ball courts, kids' playground, a live entertainment stage Gulf waves and fun people-watching? We ended up ordering the steamed shrimp which were delicious. The historical memorabilia are worth checking out as well. The day's weather,... More

Our family visited Pensacola Beach for a month and ended up at Flounder's THREE times. You can't go wrong with the seafood here. The service is also top notch. If you like dessert, get the Key Lime Pie (It's HUGE) You'll need to share it, for sure. The Diesel Fuel drinks are delish and pack a punch. We had a... More

I recently went to Flounders with friends who were just here for the weekend. Flounders was a great spot to take them too as we could eat and drink and still show them how beautiful the beach in Pensacola is. We sat outside the entire time. The service was very good. We ordered appetizers and Diesel Fuel before dinner. My... More
