Always a great place to eat

We have made this a family tradition to eat here every time we are in town. Great food and service. I would recommend call ahead seating.

The Gulf Island Grill was close to where we were staying. To me the food was overpriced. The menu had a variety, but maybe it just wasn't what I was looking for at the time.

First time in gulf shores decided to try this restaurant. It was very good shrimp and oysters. Hush puppies a little overdone but very good otherwise. Employees very polite and helpfull.

We had the Ribeye steak with a crab and shrimp topping, steamed veggies, and house salad. LOVED the crab topping. The ribeye has a lot of grizzle and was a bit tough but everything else made up for that slight imperfection. Veggies were steamed to perfection. The absolute highlight was dessert. We had the Pineapple Coconut cake and it was... More

Seemed pretty generic as far as seafood places go. The waitress was very friendly and kept our drinks full. The coconut shrimp was good but overcooked. The scampi is a big no. I couldn't even finish. I would go again though. I'd order something else, but I'd totally go again.

We waited 30 minutes for a table outside on the patio that was unoccupied the entire time. Service was good at the beginning but became inattentive as the meal progressed. The food was delicious- we tried the mango buffalo shrimp and enjoyed them very much!

I had the Jamaican Burger and it was great! The fries had a nice seasoning and I ordered clam strips for an appetizer and they were delicious. My grandson and granddaughter enjoyed them! Always kept our glasses full of tea and soda and checked on us just enough without being pesty! I recommend the stop. We had a mid-afternoon late... More

Your typical tourist place. Spent time upon arrival to town chatting with hostesses, who were friendly & polite. Waiter service lacked attention (high school or college kids). Food average.
