Bad attitude of bartender made experience sour

 stars
We went to Flip Flops on Sunday May 3, 2009 and ate at the bar. There were two bartenders, one was just wonderful, the other had just a rotten attitude. This attitude was a real turnoff and as the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. In addition the food was a 3 out of 10 at best. we waited almost an hour for our dinner to arrive, I will not recommend this place to anyone. [more ]

Appetizers At Flip Flops

 stars
We've just come from Flip Flops tonight. This time we sat out on the street side while a trio played jazz at the gazebo on the corner of Pine Avenue and Flagler Avenue. The restaurant is across from the shuffleboard courts. We parked in the public lot there. It was a nice evening with free entertainment. We were there about 5 pm. It wasn't very crowded at that time. We all ordered appetizers. One had Buffalo Chicken Strips. They were pretty fiery. The rest of us ordered individual Pita Pizzas. They were crisp and good with fresh spinach, portabello mushrooms, diced tomatoes, spinach, mozzarella and marinara sauce. Very good and filling. We were going to order dessert, but we were too full. Ask for the dessert menu since they're not listed on the regular menu. Flip Flops is open 11 am to 10 pm. It started getting pretty crowded around 5:30 pm. You can call 386-424-0161 to order or fax in an order at 386-424-0163. [more ]

Fine Food Found At Flip Flops

 stars
What we had come for was some good food, and we weren't disappointed. The appetizer list at “Flip Flops” included Jerk Shrimp, Coconut Prawns, Sauteed Calamari and a few other items ranging from $6 - $12 USD. The choice of salads was interesting. There were Cranberry Spring salads, Citrus Soy Salad, Islander Salad, with the proverbial House Salad and Caesar Salad. Main courses Mahi Mahi with Fresh peach Salsa, Tiger Shrimp Satays with Watermelon Pico de Gallo, Chicken Bruschetta, Wild Mushroom Sirloin and others. Prices for the entrees ranged from about $14 - $18 USD. They had two specials for the evening, a steak dish and a fish (grouper) dish each about $20-$22 USD. We noticed they also had individual pizzas on pita bread. Wine, champagne and beer were available along with iced tea, soft drinks and coffee. One friend had the Mahi Mahi with Peach Salsa. I had the Citrus Soy Salad with Mushroom Soup. My other companion had chicken with Pineapple Walnut Risotto. We were all happy with our choices. The dinners were beautifully presented with an edible flower on the plate. The food was excellent! The service was good. The only thing we didn't particularly like was the level of noise in the restaurant. I don't know whether it was just a rowdy bunch of people or what, but it was difficult to hear each other speak above the noise. However, that won't deter us, since we intend to eat here again, probably at lunchtime. Dress ranged from beach casual (shorts and nice polo shirt) to dressy slacks and tops. Hours are 11 am to 10 pm. Reservations accepted. Phone 386-424-0161. Parking is rather limited, but there is a public parking lot just east of the building or if that fails, the parking lot at the shuffleboard court is usually not filled. [more ]

Fun at Flip Flops

 stars
We were hungry, but wanted something different. We decided to try a new place. It's directly east of the shuffleboard courts on the beach side just off the main drag (Flagler Avenue) at 103 S. Pine Avenue. It's an unassuming building. With a name like “Flip Flops” we weren't sure what to expect. We got there around 6 pm and it was already crowded. The bar stool area was filled. Two of the 12 tables (with seatings for 4 or 2 people) in the main dining area were reserved. However, the host found a place for us and seated us quickly. We later learned there is additional seating out back on a patio seating plus a few tables out front street side. The interior of the restaurant has a beach décor. Pictures of surfboards, people at the beach and other surf scenes were hung on the wall. Surfing film was playing on the televisions. The tables had a woven grass top covered by glass. The menus were cleverly presented on a menu shaped like a pair of flip flops (slaps or thongs). It was a cozy, cute and eclectic place. [more ]

More Flop than Flip

 stars
The old town location might have been different but the location that was once "SHELLS" was a disappointment. The food selections were a bit limited, the prices are too high and the overall food quality was average at best. Come on guys, $13 salads, $14 half racks, $10+ hamburgers and all with very limited sides. The calamari was bland, the chicken sandwich bun was soggy, the crab was too salty. The best thing we had was a salad with grilled shrimp on it. You couldn't even order and old seafood standard like fried shrimp. Two thumbs down. I would not recommend this place. For the same kind of bucks go to Norwoods or even better for less cash and better food go to Blackbeards or the River Grill in Ormond.
