It is Thanksgiving evening. We are hungry and no restaurants are open. We spot Bahamas Bobs. With low expectations we park and go in. We had the shrimp and oyster po boys and they were delicious. Service was good and friendly. They are on the beach. It old fashioned Alabama.

Our family really likes this place. The alligator and fried shrimp are wonderful. Our son and daughter both tried it for the first time ever. Both asked for it again!!! There Bahama Bob burger with pineapple was huge but so good. Will defiantly return. Probably today!

The blue cheese dressing is made in house and we always ask for a little extra. We always end up ordering a salad with the dressing and the coconut shrimp as an entree. During the summer the wait to get in can be up to two hours since the restaurant is just a tiny little place. The parking lot is... More

If you want great food,This is a great place to eat. From there Bahama Bob burger to there gulf shrimp. It's all good. They also have a great salad if your looking for something on the light side. This is a local hangout. In the summer be prepared for a wait. Get there early if possible.

Dined here for lunch with my family. Our server, Hannah, was great! My daughter had the crab legs which she loved. The chef, Ashton, gave her a lesson on the proper way to crack open the legs and shells to extract the meat. The coconut shrimp was the best we had in Orange Beach!

Hubs and I got into Gulf Shores tired and wanting something fresh for dinner. Since our condo overlooks the Gulf Coast, we decided we wanted a shrimp salad. Something easy to find in a beach community. Right? Wrong! After perusing Trip Advisor, we chose Bahama Bob’s because they had a green salad with grilled shrimp on the menu. We got... More

We love seafood and the variety of seafood restaurants is extensive in Gulf Shores, BUT, the burger here is a must! We took friends to try it at dinner and the next day they went back for lunch and had the same Bahama Bob Burger.

Two people had the burgers which they said were good but not one of the best. Fries were a little over done and dry. Fried shrimp was very good though but not the coconut shrimp which was dry hard and crusty. The server was on top of things as much as she could be, but since she didn't cook the... More
