Good eats

Nothing fancy just good basic fare. Service is friendly and efficient and pretty fantastic view of the beach and the gulf. Don't go expecting fancy food, it's far from fancy but dependable, serving up fresh seafood at fair prices.

We walked to this place from Island Tower Condos, and we were so glad we did! Seated quickly, friendly service, burgers made-to-order. Nice Gulf view!

Kept coming back to this place time after time during our recent stay in Gulf Shores. We loved the casual atmosphere and had great food. All of the dishes we had were delicious, including a fish stuffed with crabmeat, seafood chowder, and the shrimp and scallop dishes. It was our favorite restaurant.

This is THE BEST place in town, by far. We have stayed in Gulf Shores many times and are drawn back here, usually more than once. If you like fried food, the captain's seafood platter is to die for. The coconut shrimp and fried fish are delicious. The outdoor seating is also wonderful if it is a cool evening but... More

The place was very crowded for January. We had to wait ten minutes for the hostess to show up and another ten minutes to get to our table which we could see ahead of time was already empty and set up. Service was very slow and the only time we saw our waitress was when she finally took our order,... More

I enjoyed my fish --my husband HATED his burger and onion rings and didn't eat but 1/4. The waiter was very attentive and it was a long wait for a table....luckily it didn't start raining until after we were seated....The people up front got to eat with folks crowded all around.

Outdoor seating area was OK, but everything was sticky due to either the 98% humidity or poor table prep, not sure which. We were seated promptly, but it took a few minutes for our waiter to show up. He got the job done, but he kept asking for us to repeat ourselves, disappeared a lot and his eyes were bloodshot... More
