Friendly service! The fried shrimp was a large portion for the money. Heavily breaded though but tasty.

just not very good seafood for time of year and location. Crab claws were very small and had too much breading. Fried shrimp was acceptable but I peeled most of the breading off. Husband's combo plate was not good.

We decided to try this place out on the first day we were in Gulf Shores. The scallops were fixed with a cracker crumb and swimming in grease. The grilled skewers of shrimp were good, however the drawn butter left a bit to be desired. The shrimp & white fish etouffe was good. Overall, we were not impressed and definitely... More

Visited with large family and we all really enjoyed our meals. We had a little of everything and it was all very good. Price is very reasonable for seafood. I would recommend the crab claws. They were awesome. Good casual atmosphere where you don't feel like you need to be dressed up. You can just remain in vacation clothing!!

If you are on holiday during peak season in gulf shores, the shrimp basket on gulf shores parkway is great but it can involve a long wait before you get a table. Get the same good food with no wait about 10 minutes away in Foley. It's away from the beach but the Locals visit this restaurant and the white... More
