Flagler Fish Company Marks Year 9 With Sea Bounty By Way of A.J. Neste

Flagler Fish Company Owner Chris Casper and his latest catch.

When you dial up the Flagler Fish Company’s new website, the sliding images make it look as if the enticing food is right at your table, as if you were sitting in the restaurant: lobster bisque, clams, oysters, an assortment of shrimp, crab and scallops, a glass of red evoking the wine-dark sea that yields all that bounty. It’s part of the restaurant’s make-over on its near-decade in Flagler Beach.


“We are so proud to be celebrating our nine-year anniversary,” Flagler Fish Company co-owner Chris Casper said. He owns the restaurant with his wife Carolyn. “We are grateful to our locals for supporting us throughout the years, all the visitors that stop in and see us, as well as our amazing staff.” Casper can be hunched over his duties at the restaurant one day and delivering school supplies to children in the remotest parts of Nicaragua’s jungle the next–as he noted on the restaurant’s Facebook page earlier this month.

The restaurant’s new website which includes the full menu, the ability to buy gift cards online, and those photographs. People familiar with his work won’t be surprised to find out that they’re by A.J. Neste, Flagler Beach’s award-winning photographer.

Flagler Fish Company, at at 180 South Daytona Ave., or FFC to locals, opened its doors in in 2005. The restaurant offers a wide selection of fresh fish and shellfish, varying daily, as well as prime beef products, appetizers and dinner specials. FFC is registered with the “Fresh from Florida” program as a restaurant that uses Florida fish, shellfish, and produce. The restaurant prides itself on its green credentials, recycling daily, paying more to be able to use recyclable take out containers (no Styrofoam), and carry only recyclable straws, to-go containers, drink cups, and cutlery.

Flagler Fish Company continually supports local charities such as The Tommy Tant Scholarship Fund, The Turtle Patrol, Rally for a Cure, Friends of A1A, church organizations and many more, striving to live up to its slogan – “Food To Knock Your Flops Off.”

FFC is open Monday through Thursday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

    We’ve been to Flagler Fish many times. For a local restaurant, okay. It is much better than other seafood restaurants in close proximity. However, the portions are quite small. Regarding the retail outlet side, very expensive. Still waiting for a good affordable local seatood retail store in a safe area around here. There are no seafood retail stores in Palm Coast. Flagler Fish is in a relatively safe area but still, it’s just so darn expensive. Nice new flashy website for FFC! Reminds me of the websites some of the expensvie seafood places down in the Keys have. It should reel in a few tourists!

      My suggestion, if you want large portions go to Martins but don’t complain about the quality.

        No thanks. Experienced Martins a long time ago. As I said “For a local restaurant, okay. It is much better than other seafood restaurants in close proximity. However, the portions are quite small. Regarding the retail outlet side, very expensive. Still waiting for a good affordable local seatood retail store in a safe area around here”. For local retail seafood, I drive all the way up to Kyle’s. The Belle Terre Publix has been doing a good job lately on shellfish and seafood in general. But Kyle’s is the best we have found for local seafood. Hull’s and Seafood Shoppe are hit and miss now. We eat a lot of seafood.

          I was sorry to see Cavenaughs go under behind the Hammocks Publix recently. It had a limited selection but it was undeniably the freshest around.

      I have been to Lunch there with my Mother several times…and I found the portions quite large. Had to ask for to go boxes…and I didn’t think it was as expensive as Martins or Fishermans Net and it was 10 times better. The variety on the menu far surpasses any seafood place around here and Other surrounding areas!
      I would recommend FFC to anyone who hasn’t tried it yet!! I seriously doubt anyone would be disappointed!! Even if you don’t want Seafood. They have something for everyone!! :-)

    One of the best things about FFC is the creative side dishes.

    I’ve always been a fan of sauteed onions and mushrooms, but the first time I ate here, I experienced a new taste treat with the FFC version, which is tossed with crumbles of Gorgonzola cheese. Something I’ve never seen done anywhere else.

    As great as the fish is, the side dishes sing.

    Great restaurant.

    Great restaurant owned and operated by great owners and staff!

    Great job on the website AJ.

    As a gal who tries to eat healthy and keep her slim figure, I’m all about quality over quantity. . . and Flagler Fish Company has the best food in Northern Florida! Their fish is sparkling fresh and prepared in YOUR choice of style. . . we LOVE that! Their side dishes are high end, creative and delicious!

    Flagler Fish Company is equal to any 4 star restaurant you would find in Atlanta or Miami. . . although much more casual. Relatively speaking they are a very good value! They have a selection of “better than average wines” as well.

    But, if all you want is a full (ever growing) belly, no matter the taste, at a cheap price . . . Yes, Martins is the popular place. There are also plenty of the usual “fried fish” places around as well. I suppose it depends on your palate, your future girth and your pocket book. Different strokes for different folks. . . it’s all GOOD!
