Best Spot for Royal Reds

Yes, King Neptune's is a hole in the wall, but they know how to do Royal Reds. It's a no fuss place, that's for sure. This is on my list every time I'm in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area. Their Crab & Corn Bisque is great, too.

After a long day on road and getting checked into condo, went out for some Seafood. Now dont get me wrong, I do not mind spending $$ on decent food but I expect a good value for my Dollar. We opened up the Menu and even my Kids jaw dropped at the prices. Sadly, we All split Entree's, 5 of... More

This place was recommended to us by other tourists. It was VERY EXPENSIVE and small portions of food. It cost us 100$ for a family of 5 to eat there with NO left overs. This was not what we wanted to spend on a meal while we were vacationing. The service was good and the waitress was friendly.

We stop @ this restaurant every time we make our way to Gulf Shores. Unfortunately, the experience this trip was terrible/horrible. They have changed the menu and the steamed seafood platter that we have always ordered before is no longer $80...it's $125. I completely understand inflation but seriously??!! So instead of the steamed seafood platter that we would normally order,... More

We had lunch and the food was very good. The restaurant is small and appears to stay pretty crowded. That is likely the only negative I would list, a bit tight for my taste. There is a nice collections of local pictures and newspaper stories on walls to look at. Our server was busy, but pleasant. Overall an enjoyable visit.

Ordered an overstuffed shrimp poboy for $19 and got a $5 5 inch shrimp poyboy that didn't have enough shrimp to cover the bread. Wait staff was terrible and the restaurant wasn't that busy. Empty tables. Will not go back and I recommend all my New Orleans area friends and family to skip this place as a choice to dine.

My husband and I visited for dinner on Saturday night. I wanted some good shrimp and really didn't want to fight the crowd at a tourist trap so we chose King Neptune's. I had high hopes because this place has been around for a long time. The place is small and kinda dirty, the bathrooms were dirty and located outside... More

Expect to pay at least $50 a person. Also expect for them to run out of the food you ordered and to still get charged for it. I will not be returning.
