This sports bar is certainly the place to be on a Saturday night for the established 30-something crowd. I had trouble navigating my way from one end of the place to the other without spilling my rum and coke on my fellow patrons. What's potentially bad for one's shirt is good news for business though, as Flounder's offers tasty bar food and decent brew for fans of football. No wonder it's so crowded.
It will be a miracle if you don't have to shout your drink order at the bartender. Once you do get your Rouge Dead Guy Ale/Red Stripe/Honker's Ale, you can try and find a seat, or better yet, head to the back. There you'll fine a bit more elbowroom, allowing you to stretch out with a menu and ponder what appetizer (quesadillas, chicken fingers and garlic fries) or entree (buffalo chicken sandwich, BBQ ribs) will settle your drunken cravings. Most items cost less than $10, so your wallet need not fret. To place your order though, you have to go back to the bartender and the crowded abyss. And to think, we were doing so well!
No matter the night, there's a special at Flounder's: Tuesday offers $7 pitchers of Miller Lite and Thursday dishes up $12 domestic buckets. The real deal, however, is a daily one, with tasty, humongous tacos running just $1.75 seven days per week. A bonus if you can take your brew and bar food out back and enjoy Flounder's beer garden, or if you join its euchre league.
Average cost: <$10
