Flounder's Chowder House
Overlooking Santa Rosa Sound, this restaurant is filled with stained glass windows and bookshelves giving it a cozy atmosphere while serving up flounder just about any way you can imagine. They also feature a wide variety of seafood, sandwiches, burgers, and salads on their menu and live reggae music is performed every night during the summer in the bar. They are open daily for lunch and dinner.
The wait was a little long. The Po'boys and Fried shrimp were excellent. The waitress we had was the best. Most of the other waitstaff was friendly. Eating out on the patio was refreshing and relaxing. The view was beautiful. The only setback were all the kids running around from the game room to the playground on the beach. It's a great restaurant for a family. Child friendly! Looking out on the intercoastal canal while having dinner was very relaxing. The white sand and blue water was the perfect recipe for me.
The food was amazing and the service was great. Even on a busy night, the waitress was verry attentive and was always checking up on us to make sure that we had everything that we needed. There was a place outside for the kids to play volleyball in the sand while we waited for our food. This is a must eat for seafood.
I hadn't been to Flounders in a few years, so I wasn't prepared for the change. The restaurant has made a complete transformation for the worse. It has changed from a pleasant, casual atmosphere to the ultra family style restauant complete with bench seating and ketchup smears on the seats. The menu, too, has changed catering to the young family crowd with no imagination in eating. I was very disappointed as I enjoyed the atmosphere and food in the past.
We walked in on Friday night and there was about a 30 minute wait, so my girlfriend and I went to the bar and ordered the baked oysters and one each of their specialty drinks, Diesel Fuel and the Bushwacker. Oysters were great, and the Diesel Fuel at 5.95 (You keep the mason jar!) and Bushwacker at 6.95 were great deals, large, delicious and strong drinks. At the table we got the F-F-F-F-F-F-Fried Flounder (I don't remember what all the F's stood for) with white clam chowder bowl, and I got the fried flounder pieces appetizer and red chowder bowl. Awesome - the fish was crispy, tender, very fresh and very good. There was so much we ate it for lunch the next day. One more Diesel Fuel for dinner. We ordered Key Lime Pie to go since we knew we wanted it, but couldn't possibly finish it there. Lunch the next day, fish was still great, and pie was incredible. We spent about $80 total, which included 20% tips at the bar and at the table. Great atmosphere, nice beach view, loved it. We'll def go back!
The people here were very friendly and funny. Our waitress was extremely helpful. I went with my wife, two children, and two grandmothers. The setting was quite good and the food was awesome. The key lime pie was HUGE! Don't miss this place
Flounders is one of those places that looks great from the outside...and then you sit down to eat. The service was terrible and the food was mediocre and all fried so my advice is to only check this place out if you are into having a grilled cheese with your children (kids love it).
Flounders is a perfect place for families to enjoy seafood and beach atmosphere. The bright tropical shirts on all the servers were one of the attractions for me. I want one of those! Of course the Kalua drink was fantastic too.
