Good food and usually very good service. Their variety of dishes usually has something for everyone and their drink menu offers some tasty experiences.

We went there after being in town for the shrimp festival. I cannot rate the food as we never got served or acknowledged by any staff after being seated. After 15 minutes no drinks no I'll be right there we left. The restaurant was not busy andthere was adequate staff. I believe this place should be avoided ay all cost... More

Great food a little pricey but ok to splurge on vacation. The atmosphere is great. Eating outside you are right across the street from the beach. The food was delicious!

It was our first time to try the Grill. We were all surprised how good the food was. Just a different preparation of the meal. Great seafood. Our server, Chris, was very helpful in our selection of our choices. I recommend you stop at the Grill for dinner.

We came here for dinner after a day at the beach. Food took way too long after we ordered (over 25 minutes). Food was barely warm when it arrived. Taste was OK at best, coconut shrimp tasted like they were from the frozen food section at the grocery store, and was way over cooked. Server came and took our order,... More

My husband and I just returned to Gulf Shores for winter and had lunch at Gulf Island Grill. They had 2 specials, which she told us changes daily. WOW. Great food. Server was excellent - very attentive and super nice.

Ate lunch around 2PM Thursday and the waitress said it was too late for the lunch menu. My son David ordered the Bon Secure fried platter while my wife and I got coffee and desserts. David said the oysters tasted strong so I tried one. It tasted like it was almost spoiled, a very strong oyster taste. Everything else was... More

We ate here late one evening and shared two appetizers. The mango bbq that was on the chicken was amazing. Waitress was friendly and attentive despite being really busy.

We shared stuffed crabs appetizer, crab bisque, Caribbean Cowboy added a scallops kabob. The food (all but the ribs) were perfectly cooked and delicious! The ribs were a little fatty, but everything else was excellent. The service was good, the staff was very nice. We sat outside and enjoyed the beach atmosphere. Would eat here again!

Great little restaurant. I had the steamed crab legs (3 clusters) and my wife had the tropical shrimp (a sweet and spicy shrimp over rice). We both cleaned our plates. Prices were very reasonable, we sat outside. The only thing that would of improved it, would be if it sat on the beachside. The peanut butter pie is wonderful too.... More
