This was the best meal in Gulf Shores! It beat out another fav of mine. We were there at 5:30 on Thursday evening and was seated immediately even though the dining area is small. There is also outdoor dining. Friendly service and the seafood was scrumptious! Will definitely go again next trip.

How can you serve raw oysters on a plate without the shells??! How long ago were they shucked? Albeit, the Grouper roulade was great . I would go there for that. It was enough to split the dinner for two. Yummy

Arrived and there was about a 30 minute wit, which wasn't bad. Stood at the bar for about 15 minutes before we were approached by the bartender to take our drink order.

Ate here the first night, and loved the food. Neat atmosphere, and good seafood. I almost went back a second night, which is saying a lot since there's so many places to go!

The service was great and the food was even better. I ate there twice during my vacation. I can't really comment on the seafood seeing that I ate ribs each time.
