Friendly waitress took drink orders (draft beer specials are a great value if you drink what they're serving) and food orders shortly after. They have several daily specials (AYCE... read more

This place is a "tourist trap", but it's my favorite one in Gulf Shores. :) I really liked their specialty drink The Bushwhacker. The shrimp and grits are really good, fried pickles were great, the crab claws were ok. Our server was very polite and helpful. There's a play area for kids, plenty of tables both inside and out.

If you want crab legs that dont cost an arm & a leg, this is where to get them. While their appetizers are rather small, and leave something to be desired, the rest of the food is good! And better yet its good food, in a fun atmosphere for people of all ages, very family friendly!!

We were there about 7:30 PM Sunday and it was not crowded. We got a table at a window so we could look out at the water. The waitress was very nice and prompt and the food and drinks arrived quickly. I got grilled Mahi Mahi with rice medley and cheese grits and my wife got grilled fish with fries... More

We ate here last night and while it wasn't bad, we probably wouldn't go out of our way to eat here. The atmosphere was nice and everything appeared clean. The food was good and there was plenty of it. But, there are other places out there that are better. The good: Plenty of food. The fried crawfish tails were fresh... More

Interesting place but we enjoyed the crazy atmosphere/design and the food was good. The drinks were excellent and we love the photo op to raise $ for the make a wish foundation! Will plan to return!

Loved the $2 beer specials! Lunch special of Shrimp Remoulade salad and roast beef po-boy was pretty good. Friend had lunch special Ceasar's salad and shrimp po-boy, which she said was pretty good. The menu isn't that creative, and if we weren't having the lunch specials, seemed over-priced. But, the ambiance and location are great, if you like that kind... More

Loved the food here. Prices were very good and the service was excellent. Would definitely go back. They have an outdoor area that overlooks the water and lots of space for large groups.
