Loved the atmosphere!+

Everything we ordered was very good! I loved the seafood gumbo and ordered the fried seafood platter. My coconut shrimp were a little over cooked but the stuffed shrimp were so good! My husband ordered the boiled reds and loved them as well. My only concern was that I had never heard of panga fish... read more

Bahama Bob's is one of our "Go To" places when at our beach house in Gulf Shores--- all the food is wonderful-- but the Bahama Bob Burger is the best on the coast...one of those with one of their Bushwacker drinks (get it with the 151 'topper') will leave you 'beach happy'. When available, their Steamed Royal Red Shrimp is... More

This place has a little bit of everything and good prices. Great seafood for me (love their Royal Reds and blackened mahi mahi sandwich), but their burger is phenomenal as well for the non-seafood lovers at the beach like my wife! They also make a mean bushwacker that's perfect to cool off after being on the beach all day.

Can be a long wait and service is their misfortune but it's a nice stop. The gumbo is the best in I've had in the gulf. More room and better service would benefit the business. Your concept is great but your business plan is flatly horrific.

We went, as a family, to celebrate my father in laws 60th bday. We got there pretty early(530, I think) so the wait wasn't too long. I liked that there was beach access on the property so the kids could play in the sand while we waited. We had 6 adults and 3 kids in our group. Unfortunately, They did... More

What can you say about the perfect restaurant? The locals were in abundance. A bit noisy, but the food was fantastic. Shrimp and grits - fabulous. Coconut shrimp scrumptious. A MUST if you like fresh and good.

The food was good but the service left you upset. Mostly they worried about how much you tip them and not taking care of you.

We arrived very close to 5 pm and did not have to wait for an outdoor table. My son had crab legs and said they are just the best.They are very large crab legs, steamed to perfection. I had Bahamas Bob's Burger, it is topped with Pineapple, Bacon,And double Swiss Cheese. So juciy and tasty. My husband had the Mahi... More

Excellent service, casual atmosphere (Come in your swim suit and cover up!) yummy food, and excellent bar service in the middle of the day! We came right after parasailing on the beach. Definitely a little pricey.
