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

We visited twice while on vacation, mostly because it was very close to our condo and we could easily walk there. We sat on the patio both times; the chairs are incredibly comfortable. We had the mahi tacos and popcorn shrimp the first time, and the crab legs and popcorn shrimp the second time. The mahi tacos were my favorite,... More

We were anxious for seafood, so we took a chance as we entered Gulf Shores. We were not disappointed! The food was fresh and tasty. Hush puppies and butter were great. The Mojo sauce was terrific. April provided great service too.

We went at dinner time and we're surprised there weren't more people. Staff was attentive, food was okay not outstanding, although their vegetables were very fresh and my fish with a rich sauce was very tasty for lunch the next day. That's always the case with heavy sauces much better after it sits in the fridge over night.

We are in town on vacation from Oklahoma and randomly picked this place for dinner this evening. Atmosphere was fun, bright, and beachy. The greeter was friendly and fast. We got seated quickly but no server for about 15 minutes. When she did arrive though, she was great and friendly. Food was a little overpriced but you get a fairly... More

Stopped in for lunch this time. Thought we'd catch a lunch special with the kids since we know this place to be good but a little pricey. No lunch specials here. But...we settled on the Key West platter for my son and I and my daughter and wife chose the blackened chicken pasta. The key west was shrimp several ways... More

Able to accommodate larger groups. Inside and outside seating. Service was good. Seafood was fresh and well prepared. Three in our group shared the large sampler. Plenty for all. 4 adults and 2 kids ate for about $100.
