best steamed food in Gulf shores

You may have to wait a while to be seated. It may be loud. But, the wait is worth it and the staff is really nice and accommodating.

If you're idea of fresh seafood is red lobster, this isn't the place for you. All of the seafood is uber fresh and has a wild taste to it- I loved it, my in-laws not so much. Only go if you are prepared for super fresh fish.

Great place for seafood in the tourist area of Gulf Shores. It's pretty expensive, but definitely a treat for us every time we go to Gulf Shores. Crabs are awesome for the outdoor seating area.

I had grilled trigger fish and it was over cooked. The place seems like they are ready to get ur money and get you out the door. Standard cafeteria quality food with no flare. The service was good and the price was reasonable for the location.

What a great change to have all of your seafood steamed or baked! It was great food and the outdoor "misting'" really helped to make the heat much more comfortable. The crablegs were delicious! Will definitely return next visit.

We ate here this evening and really enjoyed it. We aren't fans of fried food so it was great to find a restaurant that doesn't serve any fried food. We started with an appetizer of 6 raw oysters. We've never had raw oysters so we thought that at $5.99 for 6, it was a deal. The oysters were tremendous! We... More

Well we tried the steamer again this year to find very similar results as last year. Service and customer satisfaction was not at the top of their list. The only difference this year was that we did not get to the food do to the service and manager's lack of customer service request. To recall from last year food was... More

From the grilled oysters with garlic butter and Parmesan to the steamed Royal Red shrimp, everything was cooked to perfection! Show up early, though, because you will have to wait to be seated.

I've been to Gulf Shores hundreds of times in my life, but I have never visited this restaurant. How sad that makes me, to know that I've wasted all that time! We had the streamed platter for two, which it could have feed three. It was the best steamed platter I've ever had. Perfectly seasoned. The decor was that of... More

My family went to this establishment for our first time after years in coming to Gulf Shores and it was Great. You hear all the time on TV to eat fresh and keep it simple to have the best meal well that proved right here. We all had the platters that offer you the option of picking 1/2 lbs of... More
