This review will not be popular with many as it seems most people really like this restaurant. It has good reviews and was recommended by a local, thus my expectations were quite high. Well, after my recent dining experience at Nolan's, I can tell you this is not fine dining, unless your standard is the Golden Corral or such. And... More

We stumbled upon this place while visiting Gulf Shores. Rainy day so no beach but then we found Nolans. The atmosphere is great, the service is great and the food is great!! Really, it's all that good. We walked over to the lounge and a live band was playing!! We drank, we danced, we had a blast! Must go!

It's not often that you can find excellent seafood, good service and live entertainment in one special place. You will find it all at Nolan's. We were a challenging group. We brought 18 people. Serving a large group can be tough. Someone will always have a problem. My husband and I had filet and seafood au gratin. Both were excellent.... More

Second visit to Nolan's was not disappointed at all. My husband chose the whole boiled flounder with salad and fries. I even tasted it it was delicious and the seasoning was not over powering. I chose the bacon wrapped shrimp with cup of seafood gumbo. Both really good wished I would have ordered the bowl of seafood gumbo instead of... More

If you are looking for best of both worlds at the beach and want a great steak and some great seafood, this is your place. Then to top the evening off you can enjoy a fabulous band in the lounge. This place has a wonderful, laid back atmosphere that makes for a great way to end a beautiful day at... More
