We arrived at 7pm and it was very busy but only waited 10minutes. I had beer battered fish with hush puppies and chips. The fish was quite well done but the chips were fine. The service was quick and the waitress very helpful.

My wife and I had a great meal here, they have an expansive seafood menu, and all the staff are very helpful.

Was here on 10/6/2016. Have the seared tuna steak with a side of fries. Polish this down with an unsweetened ice tea on the outdoor patio overlooking the water. The tuna steak was prepared medium rare, and came off perfectly! My friend bought this meal for me--I grudgingly accepted...ha!

We really appreciated a later evening options after a long day's flights. Service was excellent, well-paced and pleasant. Extensive menu, with a sushi shop and professional chef onsite. We should have visited twice!

PROS: 1. The food was excellent. 2. There's a place for children to play. 3. The atmosphere is everything you would want for a beach-type place! CONS: 1. Service was on the slower side. 2. It's pricey (worth the price, but pricey)

Fun location for dinner or lunch at Pensacola Beach. THey get very crowded and have live music outside at times. We stopped for dinner around 5:30pm and were seated immediately but it quickly filled up by 6:30. Neat fishing/beach decor throughout the restaurant. Stop by the restrooms...you'll see the water line on that hallway where Hurricane Ivan hit. They do... More

Good food, large sized portions and strong drinks. Get a "Diesel" for an experience. It's strong and large enough to share with a friend/spouse if you're not a big drinker. The place is kid friendly and has a playground in the sand.

While we are from south Louisiana and have very high expectations for seafood, Flounder's Chowder House was a nice restaurant. The atmosphere and location were great. The food was good and reasonably priced.

Kids had a blast playing on the playground and sitting in the huge picnic chair. For dinner, we got shrimp, sushi, Philly cheesesteak and kids Mac n cheese. Everyone approved. We all enjoyed. We got there around 5:30 and when we left at 7, the line was very long. Get there early.
