    Easy to find spot in downtown Santa Rosa, with patio seating and plenty of food options for a family with kids. It's standard pub fare with an upgrade. Good burgers, fries and shakes. They attempted to add a healthy option to the menu - portobello mushroom; however the portobello is deep fried. Huh?! Nonetheless, if you are looking for burger spot that is quick and easy, this is it.

    Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great classic burger or a burger with a new spin. I actually opted for the fish n chips, but was extremely impressed. For a "burger joint" they're fish n chips definitely ranks at the top of my "best fish" list. Their menu also has the largest selection of fries I've ever seen, which I think is pretty neat. Oh and let me not forget to mention their milk shakes... Incredible. Flip side has a very cool atmosphere with outdoor seating as well as indoor. Its family friendly so definitely bring your kids. They will love it! The service is quick & very friendly.

    Comfy outdoor seating, attentive service, excellent sweet potato fries, and manager stopped by to check in with us and chat a little. The fact that it was a perfect weather day didn't hurt either. Only wish they'd validate parking.

    We were seated on the Patio on a beautiful night. Fire pits and heaters where on. Ordered the Classic burger with onion ring and they didn't disappoint! Best burger ever!

    I was pretty disappointed overall here. Firstly, if you bring fries with the meal they had better be hot and not taste and feel like they were sitting there for 20 mins before they were served up - like warm a best Secondly, if you are going to have a milk shake as a signature item such as the Campfire Marshmallow then it had better look and present special. I have had versions of these in the past and they "overflow" the glass and look totally impressive, this version barely filled the glass, was flat on top and the "toasting: that typically takes place you could see they had used the torch to burn the top - what a disappointment. Service was great and the place is great - food wise - totally mediocre.

    My wife, 6 yr. old & I arrived to a hopping place. Our booth was ready for us even though they were packed. My wife's margarita was superb. My Guinness was attractively priced for the size served (They serve 3 sizes including a liter). My son's kids cheeseburger was an adult size portion with fries & a drink. Great price. My steak sandwich - tasty. My wife ordered the fish tacos. 3 arrived - each with less than a thumb size piece of fish in them. The waitress was extremely gracious and took it back and returned with barely slightly more fish. She discounted it half. It portion price is a concern, I would rather pay a higher price for a sufficient portion of fish. Maybe others experiences are better because they seem to always be busy.

    DisappointedGuest
    Dined on 11/5/2013
    Made reservations with friends, hoping to have a pleasant evening. Too bad it was ruined by an absolutely rude, incosiderate, and incompetent server. I wish I could remember his name, but if you end up with a mid-twenties, meat head looking guy with a rediculously bugs bunny/ fireball something tattoo on his left arm, change seats quickly. Or better yet, don't even waste your time. This guy has single handedly, left a sour feeling with me and my friends towards Flipside. I'm sad to say I will no longer attend this venue for another meal. I could go on about the rudeness of our server, or his lack of attention, or even how he was much more concerned with hitting on the cute brunette server than he was with doing his job, but I'll refrain.

    We had a great lunch outdoors. The burgers were wonderful, and the waitperson kept refilling our soft drinks which is something I've not experienced in a long time. The outdoor seating area includes tables and couches with low tables for drinks and food. The North side of the indoor space opens up to the street when the weather is fine. Can't wait to go back and try the milkshakes.

    Our first visit to Flipside Bar & Burgers and everything was great. We shared a nacho appetizer and then each of us got burgers and fries or the delicious tomato/basil soup. Everything was perfectly prepared, fresh and delicious. It's a little loud, but in a fun, good way. We will be back.

    My husband & I had lunch at Flipside. We sat out on the patio which was pleasant. We both had burgers which were cooked nicely but the star of the meal was the shakes. I had a campfire shake that was a S'mores in a milkshake format. There was chocolate chips, graham crackers crumbles and the best part ----- the marshmallow topping that was slightly scorched like in a s'mores. The marshmallow was nice a gooey. They had other unusual & traditional milkshakes plus you could add alcohol to them for an adult treat.

    Great restaurant! Very nice and fun open air ambiance. The staff was super nice and friendly and we were very happy with the food. SF burger is awesome, the fish tacos were great and we want to go back to try their amazing sounding milkshakes. Love the location because we were able to walk there from our house!

    Service and food were great. Just a few beers and a chicken sandwich, but it was a great place to get away from the RR Brewery on the next block (wait was ~ 1-1/2 hours there and the place was packed).

    We had a wonderful experience! The first time we tried out Flip Side when they first opened the service was a little slow but it is much improved. Food was great as usual and we love the outside dining when the temprature is just right. This has become one of our usual downtown spots to have dinner and drinks with casual fun dining.
