The food was OK but that was it. We went at 5:30 and the Happy Hour was still on until 6. We we not told and I found out about it in the local tourist paper I happened to grab in the lobby. I went back to the hostess to ask about and found my waitress was sitting in the... More

This place is great! We actually ate here every day we were in Gulf Shores & ate different things off the menu. Many many choices to choose from that all taste very good. Decent prices & good service as well.

I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. None of the employees seemed to know what was going on. Our waitress said the chefs "didn't know what the specials were yet". I ordered the stuffed burger which was good, but the sweet potato fries were limp & greasy. My hubby got the blackened steak pasta which he said was average at best. Save... More

We arrive at 3:30 and are told they can't serve the dinner menu until 4 and the night cooks were late. Hostess and another server were sitting in the booth behind us cursing next to our 2 kids. I wanted a Reuben but they said they were still being prepped so I decided on a Burger which I ordered medium... More

Had lunch with a friend here. Food was okay but nothing to rave about. Service was good, did not need much attention, so not to much to say about that. Furnishing were very plain and I would call hard and stark. Probably will not be going back, was not a wow-must return experience. Too many other places to try.

I had my birthday dinner here and I have to say the service was great and the food was wonderful. Our server was very helpful in showing us the specials and giving us recommendations. The food was wonderful .

It's great that businesses will close during the holidays so their employees can spend time with family. It's also great that most of the businesses will advertise the closure dates. After the second time we faced a locked door, we wrote off City Grill. Later during our stay at the beach house, we had to drop off a prescription at... More

Really enjoyed our meal...filet was very good quality and cooked perfect. My husband had the pasta and It was very good. The ginger beer(non- alcohol) was the best ...made with fresh ginger... The dessert was a bread pudding and would order every time ...that's how good it was. Looking froward to trying the sushi next time.

I ate dinner here New Year's Eve and I was very pleasantly surprised...not expecting much of a restaurant in a strip mall. We had a filet with blackened shrimp and blackened redfish. The salads were crisp and the food was excellent. For dessert we had a bread pudding that was wonderful. My only complaint is timing...that needs some work. Our... More

My husband and I ate here last night. Food was really good. Great staff and friendly environment. Bit on pricey side. We both had Asian stuffed burger and onion rings,water and a mixed drink for $29. The burger was awesome, had to take off bun to eat was so thick. Would recommend this place.
