The Flagler Fish Company, the Flagler Beach restaurant specializing in gourmet seafood and located at 180 S. Daytona Ave., just completed an awning and enclosure expansion of the restaurant’s front patio. 

“We always knew that we wanted to expand the outdoor dining area,” says owner Chris Casper. “The canvas awning gives shade to the outdoor tables while still catching the sea breezes all day long.”

The new outdoor dining area is pet friendly. According to the American Pet Products Association’s bi-annual pet owner survey, in 2009-10 there were 71.4 million homes with a pet. That’s 62 percent of all U.S. households. “We wanted to offer pet owners an option to bring their pet to Flagler Fish Company, either by car of while they are out for a walk,” Casper said.

The awning allows diners to sit outside even in inclement weather. Heaters are available during the colder months, giving the patio year around usage. The patio has a tropical look and feel to it, with tropical plants strategically placed in and around the patio.

The Flagler Fish Company will celebrate its six-year anniversary in the fall. “We would like to thank all of our loyal customers who have helped us reach this milestone,” says Casper. The restaurant’s tag line: “Food To Knock Your Flops Off.”

Flagler Fish Company offers fresh fish and shellfish selection. The selection includes grouper, flounder, code, salmon and tuna. The restaurant also carries certified Angus beef brand USDA prime hand cut Rib-eye, filet mignon, and New York Strip. The indoor and outdoor restaurant offers a variety of seafood dishes complimented with creative gourmet sides to po boy and Cuban sandwiches, seared tuna, steamed Maine lobster, full plate salads and creative soups and chowders.

Flagler Fish Company is open Monday thru Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturdays 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. The restaurant can be reached at 386/439-0000.

  3. Patti Powell says:

    And then our illustious City Commission voted the ordinance down. Thanks Jane and Steve for trying.

    This makes me angry! Seriously! We say we want to be business friendly and be warm and welcoming – what a bunch of crap!! You have two businesses that are telling you that this will negatively impact their business! Geez, what is wrong with you people! Seriously, the most anti-business village I’ve ever seen! And we wonder why Flagler beach is turning into a ghost town with empty buildings like the old jiffy and hardware store! Wake up FBCC!

    Well I thank the commission for NOT letting this happen as I do visit there and do NOT like spending my money where a pile of dog crap is laying because no one seen it to pick it up. A food service place is NO place for animals take them to the beach thats dog friendly. Who is LIABLE if there is a bite to a patron that may be the question.

    Thinkforourself…true they voted the ordinance down…so now we can’t take our pooch to Flagler Fish outside or Hurricane Patty on the dock? If true is really bad…then I will go to the pet friendly one’s in Palm Coast.

    To John Smith I reassure you that I never seeing in all my many decades of dinning in pet friendly restaurants, cafes and bakeries in this county and cities, or in NY, NJ and high class wealthy residential Chandler AZ one pet mess (like you call a pile of crap) much less urine or any smell of dog waste! Also take to dinning those pets that are friendly and well behaved and keep them on leash while dinning at all times. Have you witness a pile of crap in any of these pet friendly local dining places? I doubt it. Maybe is just a mirage of your feverish anti pooch mind? Feel free to document reality if I am wrong.
    As per myself I only go 99% of the times to dine, breakfast or snack and beverage only to pet friendly restaurants by car or boat. Too bad for the business they will loose, imagine how many pooch lovers we have in this county for the amount of new Petsmarts etc opening everywhere.

    Here is the true voting down of the pet friendly ordinance by FB commission. So they just lost my dinning, breakfast or snacks and beverage business. I will remain in PC or go to St Augustine pet friendly places.
    Sorry Java Joint I know you tried hard…lets get more signatures and present it again on next FB agenda as I was not aware that Java owner was gathering signatures.
    I totally agree with Alice Baker Mayor…that is so much more health pernicious the second hand smoke we have to endure that the presence of my seating dog under the table while we dine.
    Good way to kill businesses in a current pathethic economy, as usual to benefit a minority negative vocal group.
