They are the one place that their fried items uses more cornmeal...which is authentic Southern. The sides are great. The coleslaw has tiny shrimps and I love the potato salad. My favorite is the fried oysters..either in a poboy or a basket. My son had the fried oyster topped hamburger and said it was fantastic. I can also say they... More

This is a good place if you like fried stuff. We were there on a Thursday night and it is all you can eat fried white fish or catfish. I had the white fish special which cones with your choice of potatoes hushpuppies and their shrimp slaw. We also ordered additional hushpuppies and corn fritters. My wife had the shrimp... More

If you are on holiday during peak season in gulf shores, the shrimp basket on gulf shores parkway is great but it can involve a long wait before you get a table. Get the same good food with no wait about 10 minutes away in Foley. It's away from the beach but the Locals visit this restaurant and the white... More

This restaurant & its sister restaurant in Gulfshores, AL are my go to restaurants for Shrimp PoBoy. Like that bun is not so large that you can't get in your mouth! I recommend! I will return!

After hearing so many people talk about the "shrimp basket" I just knew I had to give it a try. I was seated outside which at the time was my choice. But I changed my mind as I sat there getting wet from the mist they have constantly spraying on the deck. Yes it was cooling a hot day off... More

They are a good shack type place to eat. The food is what you would expect and is consistent. If they have oyster specials and only a few left, don't do it. We did.... 3 days hugging the porcelain god. It was once!! The other times, everything was great.

This is a great place and a great place to do takeout.. Sometimes it's a little too bustlely inside so try to get outside or even do takeout. The food is always good and well priced.

Visiting Gulf Shores. Stopped here on the way home for late lunch (about 3PM), based on good reviews. Very nice server. Seafood Gumbo is a vegetable soup. Good fried oysters. Blackened shrimp tacos just ok.

Have visited here several times over the past few years. Have never had a bad meal. This last visit a week ago, I got take out.
