We were here on a Sunday night. Quick service and wonderful food. We got the Winter specials and had more than we could eat. My husband had the shrimp and I had the grilled grouper with bacon wrapped shrimp skewers. Grouper was perfect,as was the shrimp and steamed veggies. We did leave enough room to split a piece of key... More

They have a $7.99 lunch special. Includes a entry and two sides. The fried grouper is crispy and light battered just like I like. The hush puppies are delicious. Get a side salad with honey mustered dressing to top it off. Ice tea is included in the special. Great food great price. This is our 2nd visit. Will be back.

We ate off the lunch menu here Thursday. All three of us ordered fish. We had grilled, blackened, and parmesan with different sides and everything was good. The waitress did a great job and the food came in a timely manner. It is located across the street from the gulf.

This is a typical local seafood restaurant. First the Bad News - I had Peel & Eat Shrimp Dinner. The shrimp was overcooked. The corn on the cob was overcooked. They only gave me one hushpuppy. Now the Good News - The service was great. The cocktail sauce was very good. The hush puppy was EXCELLENT! Since the shrimp was... More

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.
