Great Food, Great Service & Quiet Atmosphere

Awesome! Everything we had was great. Steaks were perfect. I had 24oz Ribeye and my wife had Filet. Could cut the filet with a fork. Appetizer of Greek style beef tips were delicious. I will try the Greek style on fish next time. Salads were fresh. Waitress was Sam' who timed everything just... read more

We visited on the recommendation from the hotel staff for a nice quiet restaurant. Nolan's lived to the billing. Most guests were nicely dressed -- appropriate for the atmosphere. A large table nearby was not obtrusive, even with several very well behaved children. (This is not a place for disruptive or rowdy children). The food was on the upscale end,... More

We went there as a group of 15 for dinner! Had no wait, service and food were outstanding! We will def make this a yearly restaurant when we visit the area! Our waitress was very nice and very helpful with giving us tips on what to order! Nowhere will top Nolan's on our vacation!

We visit Gulfshores yearly for a weekend or a week. Nolan's is our special celebration dinner spot. Anniversary, Birthday, etc. We have always enjoyed the food. The waiter or waitress is always top notch. Last night Austin, our waiter was no different. Friendly, curious, great service. The steak was seasoned well and shrimp were perfect. Homemade cocktail sauce and Salad... More

On vacation with son, daughter in law and her mother...we were thinking this was going to be really special. The steaks had so much fat on them and they had no flavor. If I'm going to spend $33 on a meal for one person I really expect way more! Won't be returning!

We enjoyed the atmosphere at Nolan's. The crab cake appetizer was great, but was only two small cakes. Don't plan on sharing much if you order them. The grouper was fantastic and so was the filet. Nice wine selection as well.

Excellent service from Ms Melba! She was very attentive to everything. Great steak and seafood. Good wine menu. Very full and satisfied with this choice. They don't take reservations have a wait list. I recommend you call and get on the wait list, it fills up fast! We got there at 6 which was perfect. If your looking for steak... More

Atmosphere and service were great. Seafood is pre-frozen. Grouper was tough, crab was very dry. No idea about their steak, but I don't look for food that I can get at home when on vacation. Seems like the lounge is a good after dinner spot, just don't eat a seafood dinner there.

Proudly serving "choice" meats with an array of cliche and poorly executed sides. Stay away from the steaks in any event. I would avoid the place all together, but if you must go, stick to seafood. The servers are overly casual in demeanor but make up for it with very formal dress; silly pleated tuxedo shirts, complete with enamel button... More
