Good Fried Seafood

If you are in the mood for fried seafood this place is as good or better than most in Gulf Shores of which there are countless. Generous portions, reasonable prices, good grungy beach ambiance, friendly waitstaff and fast service. We'd go back and we'd recommend it to friends

we stopped in for a quick lunch and really enjoyed it. I had the grilled shrimp and my hubby had the red beans and rice with sausage and both boys had the chicken and fries. The portions were large and filling. We will return again.

We ate at quite a few places in the area and came back here a second time. The workers were great, food is AMAZING, and prices are great! We also ate at the one down the road in Perdido Key. Just as amazing. I highly recommend!

We always hit up the Shrimp basket when coming into town. The BBQ bullseye burger is really tasty. My family loves the shrimp and oysters. They say the oysters are "excellent". Regarding the patio atmosphere...We don't love that there are misters above our tables on the patio, throwing mist on our food. That's a tad unappetizing and the tables are... More

Every time we vacation, we drive directly here to eat FIRST! It is one block away from the beach, so then you can go straight get your toes in sand and surf. The quality food, drinks and atmosphere at great prices keep us coming back!

This is a really cool little spot to get local seafood. We had the shrimp and grits and they were delicious! Hate that we tried this place so late in our trip. We definitely would have visited a few more times.
