We ate at Happy Harbor Oyster Bay Saturday. It is a local restaurant and bar on the water with music. I ordered one of their specials, a grouper Ruben. It was very good with a large grouper filet with plenty of melted cheese. My wife had grilled grouper and it was very good also. Both came with two sides of... More

This is a great location to relax, come as you are & enjoy a great meal. They have the oyster bar in behind the main family restaurant. Thurs, Fri, Sat & Sun they have entertainment. If it's just someone strumming the guitar & singing it takes the day from average to ahhhh. Thanks for helping leave the stress of the... More

This may not have been a place we would normally stop, but my friend who lives in Foley had a coupon a few years ago and they have returned many times. The building is unassuming with a convenience store on upper level and the restaurant below surrounded by a gravel parking lot. It is a bit off the beaten path,... More

Our first visit to Gulf Shores was July 2013 and this was one of the first places we ate at and we LOVED it. We loved it so much we made sure to visit it again this year (June 2014). We ordered the Shrimper's Choice and relished every bite. The coconut shrimp is to die for. We were seated promptly... More

Dined Sunday evening at 7pm after traveling all day, wanted something close and not fancy. This place isn't fancy, sort of local bar and grill with vinyl outside walls that can be rolled up when the weather is nice There was a good crowd but not crowded and the 2 piece band was starting to play. We got a table... More

We went to Happy Harbor based on the reviews here. When we pulled up, I was a little skeptical, but outward appearances are deceiving. Took our party of 9 in around 5pm, were seated immediately as it wasn't that busy. If you get there before 6, oysters are $.50 each. I ordered a dozen and they were the best I've... More

What a great location for locals! However, family, friends & visitors alike are all welcome at Happy Harbor, Oyster Bay. Family friendly, bring the kids. Good food, oysters, drinks, etc. Different sections of the location have different live music. Beautiful views at sunset. Thanks Happy Harbor for a super place to relax.

With this location, the great staff & wonderful choices of food you can't go wrong. Oh yea, the title Oysters. Well those are awesome. Shucked right on site, fresh, & cold. You can get them multiple ways. So many choices for dinner, enjoy.

We loved this place because it is off the beaten path. More of a "local" kinda place. The owner of our condo recommended it to us. Fast service, reasonable pricing, GREAT food!
