My wife and I live about ten miles north of Dauphin Island. It's an area that is about midway between the island and a ton of restaurants to the north. We consistently pick JT's. The food isn't pretentious it's just good. It is served on paper plates and we eat on the deck overlooking the sound. Order the shrimp tacos... More

I enjoyed eating some fresh shrimp at JT's- and the crabcakes were scrumptious! ( made by a nearby cajun grandma, aurthentic, for sure!)-The spices ( I got it blackened) could've been a bit more spicy for my taste but overall the food was good-and the service was excellent. This was our first night on the Island so the VIEW really... More

This is a must visit restaurant if you are in the area! The grill shrimp were fantastic!, The grilled Grouper was the best I have had in a very long time!. Everything we ordered was very tasty. The staff was friendly and the service was great. We had one of the tables outside and witnessed a wonderful sunset! Great ending... More

The food was wonderful and our server was very busy but totally attentive to our table. Our party had blackened fish tacos- 5 stars, shrimp po-boys, blackened fish po-boys, both 5 stars. Everyone wants to go back before our trip ends!

Hands down, this was our favorite. Blackened shrimp tacos, grilled shrimp, fried fish. Everything we ordered was so yummy. The staff was friendly and the service was great. When we arrived we were the only party in the restaurant, when we left there wasn't a table inside or outside. This was some of the best seafood I have ever had.

Everything we tried on the menu wes delish and we went back 2-3 times. Crabcake burgers, gumbo, JT's Cheeseburger, all GREAT! You can even visit the pub upstairs and have your food delivered.

If you have a deficiency in fried food, this is the place for you. Everything was fresh and tasty. Servers are super friendly. The gumbo comes in small, large and quart size so you know it's good. Here's a tip to save some money: the appetizers offer some of the same food as the platters in large potions but at... More

If u want your crab bisque served from a Dixie bowl, food that tasted like it fell out of a Kelly food truck it's your place. Great waste of an amazing view. Sad to say

This is Dauphin Island! The servers were overwhelmed, but still very friendly and our food came pretty quickly. One has to consider that one is on "island time" while down here. It was hot and delicious, so what else really matters? Our choices were all fried, so I can't attest to the fresh fish offered. The shrimp, pickles and shrimp... More

I tried this place for the first time a week a go and the food was good at a reasonable price but the staff was impressive. My waitress was young but friendly and did an excellent job. I would say that if you are in the neighborhood its worth a try.
