While on vacation in Orange Beach we decided on this trip to try new to us restaurants. One of the new one’s on our list was Flipper’s. We had added it to our list on a recommendation from our niece and nephew. They had visited on their most recent vacation and said that the hushpuppies were really good.
This was probably my best seafood meal of the week.
Even though we went there for the hushpuppies, we decided not to try them since the menu called them sweet onion hushpuppies. Jeff doesn’t like chunks of onion or pieces of corn in his hushpuppies. Myself, I’m not a big fan of hushpuppies, it is one of those things that I can do without.
We started with an appetizer of cheese curds. These are always good where ever we get them.
I went with the Greek Grouper. It was grilled and topped with Greek seasonings, olive oil, lemon pepper, onion, tomato, mushrooms, kalamata olives, and feta cheese. It was served on a bed of rice pilaf and sauteed vegetables.
Jeff had the lunch portion of the chicken pesto. This was grilled chicken with a pasta in bright pesto sauce, but he had them to leave out the mushrooms.
This restaurant takes some hunting or sign following to find. It is on the bay off of what is called on the map Alabama’s Coastal Connection and then thru a subdivision. We saw people coming and going into the marina and some stopping just to eat at Flipper’s or to visit the outside bar.
Some of thebest finds are family owned, off the beaten path restaurants. If you are in the area we recommend checking them out.
