Had the grilled chicken sandwich today for lunch. I went with some friends and they both had shrimp poboys. The food was good as it always is. I have been eating here for years and have never had a bad meal. The prices are comparable to everywhere else down here but the atmosphere is a little better. You can get... More

We went because of the reviews and were disappointed. The service was slow the wait was long and the food was just ok. We had much better food along the gulf the week we were there for similar price. The property is not well maintained and the prices are not cheap.

I read many reviews before we went to this place to eat. Our service was great but the food was just average. Have eaten much better at tother places in Gulf Shores. The place was very crowded and noisy which made it difficult to enjoy a conversation while eating. My crab legs were overcooked which made it difficult to get... More

Server was prompt and attentive. We ordered a shrimp dinner and crab legs. Dinner was at the table hot and well prepared. My wife loved the crab legs.

Coconut shrimp was so good. Grilled shrimp and grilled scallops were also excellent! Service was great and wait was short:but that's not the norm!

We ate lunch here and enjoyed sitting on the porch, taking in the breeze. The staff is friendly and attentive. The prices are average (read a little high) for restaurants at the beach. The food was good but unremarkable.

The food was good but the service was a bit slow. It's a small location so we were surprised that it took so long for our waiter to take our drink order and even longer to take our food order. But once we got our food we were happy with the portion sizes (omg the shrimp po'boy had a dozen... More

Went for lunch I had the shrimp po boy and my wife had the coconut shrimp. She said they were the best she's ever had. Service was fast and the food was good. Prices a little steep IMO. A side of cole slaw was over 2 bucks and the portion was small. Good atmosphere and good food just a bit... More

We stopped in around 9 on a weeknight and were seated immediately on the patio. Our server was very friendly and attentive, even though you could see she was kind of busy. The two of us shared fried cheese sticks as an appetizer and then shared the crab legs. Everything was delicious and the crab legs here were much better... More

We had eaten here last year and it was really good. This time around all I can say is the food was ok. The servers were good and checked on is often but the food was nothing special.
