- Cuisines: International, British, Fusion
Flanagan's occupies a prime position on Front Street, immediately across the street from the spot where cruise ships float at anchor during their Bermuda sojourns. Don't judge the place by what you'll find on the street level, where pool tables and at least seven big-screen TVs broadcast up to three different international sporting events at a time, as pinball and automated poker games blare away in the corners. Try to get a seat in the upstairs dining room or on the panoramic veranda (and your best chance to achieve that is to make reservations).
Flanagan's is not known for culinary distinction except in one category: It serves the best fish chowder in Bermuda. Fish chowder is sometimes a bland dish, tasting like boiled fish in milk, but at Flanagan's, the dish has zest and flavor. That charbroiled 8-ounce sirloin that appears on your plate tastes even more delectable when served with a zesty peppercorn sauce. If you prefer lighter fare, opt for the daily changing menu of fresh fish, which will be grilled to perfection.
