My favorite place to eat when we visit my brother on Lover's Key near Ft. Myers Beach is right next door -- FLIPPERS
It's casual & friendly. Great food coming out of a tiny kitchen to a not much bigger outdoor only dining deck.
I'm addicted to the mussels.
And the coconut shrimp. In fact, I usually just order the two appetizers as my meal.
But, while we were there last week, the unthinkable happened. They received a glowing review in the local newspaper.
My sister-in-law always order the crab cakes. The other night, they were out of them. We asked the waiter if he was seeing new faces. He said lots, and lots. Hmmm. Good for Flippers, I guess. Not so good for those of us who would have loved to keep the place a local secret.
