The Top Ten Flagler Beach Restaurants for 2023

One of the best parts of vacation is exploring the culinary options in a new area. Thankfully, the selection of Flager Beach restaurants gives us a huge choice of fresh and delicious menus to discover—many of which are located right on the beach and have front-row ocean views. From scratch-made seafood chowders and oysters on the half-shell to light, flavorful salads and fried fish sandwiches, you better bring your appetite!

Here are the top ten Flagler Beach restaurants to consider visiting during your stay:

  1. Ragga Surf Cafe: One of our favorite Flagler Beach restaurants isn’t in a building, but in a converted blue bus serving some of the best beach-friendly food in town. Find elevated chicken salad, melty-grilled cheeses, scratch-made confections, and super refreshing beverages. Grab a picnic table in the shade of an umbrella and look out on the ocean.
  2. Vessel Sandwich Co.: This locally owned eatery is known for its menu of scratch-made soups and sandwiches, fun beer cocktails, and curated wine list. Don’t miss the shrimp roll and the pork belly Bahn mi sandwich. Definitely one of the best Flagler Beach restaurants for lunch!
  3. High Tides at Snack Jack: This oceanfront cafe has been serving up conch fritters, wild-caught ahi tuna Reubens, and crab cakes since 1947. The casual surf town atmosphere sets the mood for a chill afternoon with tasty drinks and dishes.
  4. FARO Beachside Eatery: This is one of the best Flagler Beach restaurants for classic Italian dishes with a modern twist. Go for handmade pizzas, fresh pasta, and lovely charcuterie spreads; stay for the people-watching, Aperol spritzes, and happy hour specials.
  5. SunBros Cafe: This family-owned spot is open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week. They’re known for having the best burger in Flagler Beach but also for their fresh salads, pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and lovely lattés.
  6. The Island Grille: For those in the mood for a fine dining experience, this is one of the best Flagler Beach restaurants for a romantic date night out. The wasabi oysters are a must! Reservations are a good idea; we’re happy to arrange those for you.
  7. Turtle Shack Cafe: This laid-back eatery on the ocean invites guests to sit back and relax with fun cocktails and plenty of beer and wine options. The space is small, but the flavors are bold! Don’t miss the grouper and crab bisque.
  8. Flagler Fish Co.: Craving seafood while on the Atlantic Coast? The menu at this casual market and lunch spot showcases steamed shellfish, a raw bar, and flavorful tacos. Our favorite is the signature fish sandwich with panko-crusted fish fried to perfection, creamy tarter sauce, and slaw, all on a house-made bun.
  9. Ohana: For fresh, scratch-made healthy breakfasts and lunches during your time here, this casual juice bar/cafe is one of the best Flagler Beach restaurants for vegan and gluten-free options.
  10. Next Door Beach Bistro: This new kid on the block is still in their soft opening phase, but our expectations are high. The French-inspired restaurant dedicates a whole menu section to protein and frites pairings! Sign us up for the lobster and truffle French fries, please.
