Don't be fooled by the lack of cars or folks in the restaurant, we were blown away by the best grouper dish Ive had in a long time. Located next door to a fresh seafood market helps this restaurant serve only the freshest local seafood dishes. The owner/chef is a pleasant young man with a bright future if he keeps... More

From reading some of the other reviews, we must have been there on a bad night. Would not eat there again, based entirely on the food we received and the cost.

This restaurant is cozied away in an obscure side road, so you think well it will be like a deli, NO it was gourmet food to the hilt! I had the red snapper and when I told them my dietary needs they cooked it to perfection. My husband had oysters and the catch of the day. This place may not... More

We started off with a martini (BTW there is only one martini - it has Gin and vermouth - everything else is a cocktail) and a dozen raw oysters (9.99) and a dozen Garlic Parm. Oysters (12.99). The timing was perfect. As a side note I am always amazed when folks complain about the service. Remember, you are in control.... More

We decided to try this place because it was very close to where we were staying. It is pretty basic looking on the outside. Our waitress was great and kept checking on us but it took almost 45 minutes to get our food. despite the kitchen taking so long to prepare the food it was very good. My husband had... More

In reading some negative reviews, we were skeptical but decided to try this restaurant anyway since it is close to our beach house and we had never been there before. Our food was great. The staff could not have been friendlier and our waiter was very nice and attentive. We waited 25 minutes for our food but we did not... More

Ate here for lunch today since it's close to where we're staying. I will start off with the fact that the young gentleman that waited on us, genuinely tried to do his best. However, I think he was working alone with a relatively new kitchen staff. We were seated and were the only two people in the place for a... More

We have been impressed with the beaches of Gulf Shores! We were a little weary of coming down three years ago but the beaches are well kept and it is so nice to see the sea life coming back. The water is so clean and this year was the first year we have seen so many different shells. It is... More

Nightly specials, prime rib was good, willing to prepare with special requests. Service a little slow, adequate bar. Nice décor, clean.
