Due to weather changes we need to change our travel dates and found space at Flynn's last minute. That said this site is really a restaurant with a marina for smaller dock & dine boats who can and do stay overnight. We were told in advance and understood we would be docked outside the break water wall. What we did not expect was to have our 56' boat in an approximately 30' foot long slip. There was a strong wind out of the west, and due to the undersized slip, made it impossible to tie off to keep off of the piling because our bow lines even on our 2nd set of cleats only made spring lines. There is no radio monitored so we needed to jog outside the marina until the 1 overworked dock hand (Who was great!!!) got to us and we yelled back and forth to grasp where he wanted to put us. There is a very confusing dockage pricing structure that involves you paying a higher rate (That changes based on the size of your boat and the day of the week) then giving you coupons to use at their restaurant. Sort of forcing you to eat at their restaurant to bring your slip fee down. We did eat at the restaurant and the food and entertainment was great. Overall this marina needs to evaluate there facility and take reservations for boats that their slips were designed for or fully disclose that not only will it be a "Bit Rougher" outside as we were told, but you will also only be in half a slip if you have a larger boat.

Everything great. Dockmaster and crew very helpful

I came here today with the recommendation from my boating instructor. I was extremely pleased with the food and service. The dock people couldn't be more helpful as I'm new to boating. They actually got on my boat before I even got into the marina and did everything but park it for me (they offered). I found my new favorite place on long Island.

Awesome. Great dockmaster and great dock hands!

Mike, the dockmaster is the best. Consider letting him jump aboard and dock your boat. $75 for the day is the best you'll do in Fire Island ($100 with gratuity), besides anchoring up and froging It to shore. You can no longer beach it at Flynn's. They roped off the area to the east. Have fun!

stayed for the last 12 years always had a great time. The boat next to me had their radio on so loud I couldn't hear the person next to me. also one of the 30 amp plugs was not working properly and the rude boater next to me kept unplugging me and plugging his boat into the plug I was using

This marina is in a great location but has very little in the way of amenities for the overnight boater besides water and electric. There is no bathroom, not even a port-a-potty. The attached restaurant has a bathroom but is not open 24/7 and has a very crowded bar scene. The dock is fixed, making it difficult to get on and off the boat depending on the tide. There are outside and inside slips. The outside slips are not protected and exposed to boat and ferry traffic as well as the wind. The inside slips are more protected but very difficult to navigate. You best bet is to stay OUTSIDE the marina, call and wait until the super skilled dockmaster calls you over. Let the dockmaster jump on your boat and guide you into the slip and tie you up. They are very impressive. We were in an outside slip and had several near mishaps with captains trying to enter the marina on their own. The potential for damage to your boat is great. It’s a very short walk to a beautiful beach. There are a few restaurants, bars and shops easily accessible. Great place to stay but be aware that the physical facilities are rough!

I don't understand the bad reviews.I've been going here for over 8 years, I've never had a bad experience! I bring all my clients there because I know They will never embarrass me and their guys on the dock are extremely helpful. The manager always checks to make sure everything is ok and even the owner has asked if we needed anything. They have hands down the best deal in Fire Island not to mention the best location. If I lived closer, I'd go a few times a week!

Reservations were easy. Pulled up to marina, dock master was there. Off the boat in minutes enjoying the day. Flynn’s was was great. Look forward to spending the day there again.

Dock master was helpful and got us right into a slip. Food and drinks were great. Beautiful view of the sunset.

The marina is great and the Dock Master and the guys working on the docks are amazing. You don’t have to do anything when you get there as they do it all for you. The restaurant on the other hand, food was awful and the service was terrible. There were only four or five tables in the entire place and out of the six people at our table not one of us had a good meal and the price was ridiculously overpriced . I will utilize the marina anytime possible but will never go into the restaurant again

No one there to greet us and assign slip. Waited almost an hour. Then given temporary slip. After we took the boat out for a dinner cruise, we didn't have anyone there assigning a slip when we returned. Michael the manager tried to rectify the situation but was too little too late (we could have at least had our meal comped for our troubles). Then the marina was horribly loud until 5am. NEVER AGAIN. Terrible place (unless you're 22 drunk and don't care)

Power issues continue at the marina. Electric receptacles are warn. Always popping breakers.
