Nice setting for a relaxing lunch after Thanksgiving. Ordered Mexican Garbage Nachos and firecracker shrimp. Good service and good food. I would go back when in the area again.

Great local place on the water. It was breezy but they have heaters on the decks, so that was nice! Just came in to get appetizers and drinks. I had one of their frozen drinks, the amaretto blossom. Very tasty! Family friendly and great service.

We love this place. The food was good. We were there during a storm, but the service was still good. We ate inside instead of outside where they have so many tables and bars to see out and in good weather is delightful.. They service alcohol and all manner of food selections. They are getting ready to enlarge so there... More

The shrimp is way too salty. We told the waitress we didn't like the shrimp and she asked, "why, too salty". Guessing she's been told this before. Bushwackers are okay.

This is a fun place with a great view. The fried green tomatoes are the best I've had in the Gulf. They're cut like French fries, making them extra crispy. The Mexican garbage( nachos) are enough to feed a family. Also the best margaritas in Orange beach.

It looked fun...but it was kinda dirty in appearance and food was pricy. Oysters on the half shell, 1 pound boiled shrimp and a beer was $40.00! Food was timely and hot. Everyone said their food was good. I was simply unimpressed for $40.00.

We hadn't made it to the grocery shore yet & didn't want to drive all the way to Foley, so we decided to try a local place. This was not a good decision. They don't have a children's menu, so we had to pay $9+ for my 2 year old a pancake (albeit huge, but way more than we needed)... More

We arrived at about 5:00 and found the place to be interesting. It looks like such a fun place, and probably is on a "right night." Last night wasn't so right. We were quickly seated because we said it didn't matter whether we sat outside or inside. The place looks fun and funky and we were pleased by its appearance.... More
