Not for the faint at heart!

This is one of my favorite dives. It's mostly locals, but vacationers are welcome too. I think the burgers are fantastic, very messy and flavorful, especially after a long day on the boat. My favorite is their onion rings and bushwackers! I would recommend going by boat although you can drive. It... read more

While vacationing in Orange Beach a friend picked us up on his boat and asked us where we wanted to eat. We decided on a place the locals like but were warned up front that this place was a dive. We beached the boat and hopped out onto the beach. Our order consisted of cheeseburgers and bushwackers, a popular local... More

Well we can't argue that this is not a dive bar because it certainly is.we went to Pirates Cove in March so it was a little off-season and walked in to what looked like some serious drinkers. This place is dog friendly and there were quite a few around and were well behaved. The atmosphere was very rustic to say... More

We arrived by boat, and had burgers and drinks. I don't know the health rating but it seems a little grungy. If you are the laid-back type and like dogs, you will probably like it.

We arrived at this marina/restaurant by boat. Approaching, it appears tropical, beachy, fun. I really wanted to have a cool place to hang out in the area. The crowd is an eclectic mix of nasty rednecks and upper middle class trying to be hep. The place is visibly moldy with rusted fixtures (not for effect). We went to the gross... More

Ok so my family and I decide we want a hamburger. So I googled best burgers in Orange Beach Alabama and Pirate's Cove yacht club which was second to Shawn's but had many more people rating it. So far what I see is a hole in the wall on the water. "which is usually my favorite best kept secrets" I'm... More

Fun place to pull up on the boat and grab a burger or chicken strips, onion rings and a bushwhacker! Great Tshirts, dog friendly and friendly staff. Bushwhackers will bring us back next month for a return visit!

Spent the afternoon cruising down the ICW through Wolf Bay over to Pirates Cove. It was a gorgeous day and the beach was already packed with boats so we tied up to the dock and made our way down the pier. Everyone's out have a good time with their friends, kids or dogs. As usual on a weekend, there's a... More
