Great food!

The food was excellent. They have the best shrimp salad sandwich and chicken tenders. It was nice sitting outside to eat as the view was nice. The staff was friendly and wait was not too bad.

Bahama Bobs is one of our favorites. Although there is always a wait we always leave satisfied. Crab legs have always been fresh and plentiful. This particular trip we had coconut shrimp and shrimp poboys. Both were fabulous. And they have THE best cole slaw.

This was our 3rd meal here. We had a large (15) group that was accommodated very well. We did have a significant wait of 1 1/2 hours, but were told this would be the case. We used the time to take family photos on the beach and had very good drinks while waiting! The appetizers are good and there is... More

Really good food and service. The hamburgers and Poyboys are both great. I also had a cup of the gumbo and it was very good. Located on the beach with great food and service …. Really hard to beat if you just want a good quick lunch or dinner.

My daughter wanted to try so "some type of seafood" so after reading the reviews, we (3 of us) walked over to the restaurant from our hotel. We had chicken fingers, the burger, and the steamed crab legs. All were very good.. We got there right around 4pm and were seated right away on the outside deck which was lovely.... More

Good burgers but I'd go with the seafood for sure. Good adult beverages(try the Bahama Bob). Long wait unless you time it just right(open at 11, be there then or around 3 or 4).

We walked down the beach to Bahama Bob's on our first night in Gulf Shores. Apparently everyone else had the same idea as there was a two hour wait. They offer outdoor seating on the deck as well as air conditioned seating indoors. It was a fried seafood in baskets kind of a place. They offered crab legs, chicken sandwiches... More
