Love their Tuna Steak

I had a tuna steak sandwich. DELISH! The others at my table were all happy with their burgers and fish N fries. Atmosphere was beachy-cute and unfortunately it was a chilly day but I bet when it is all open-air it's really nice.

After doing much research on were to get the best crab leg Bahama Bobs came up many times. When I first walk in and saw the décor I wasn't so sure this would be the case. Well both my wife and I decided to go with the crab legs which turn out to be a lot of crab. Well we... More

Ok it's small with tight seating. But it's on the sand! It's beach food kicked up a notch with cold beer and a staff that works hard. For me, it's what I want for lunch. Wear your beach clothes, relax and get some shrimp or a burger. Prime season it's crowded cause other folks want to go there too.

We go to Gulf Shores every year for a long weekend in February. Bahama Bob's is a must-dine on every trip. Our two favorite dishes are the Island Combo - with a pound each of crab legs and the best shrimp in the world - Ruby reds. And the burgers are huge and outstanding - best on the beach! we... More

My two adult brothers and my older parents had a fun, relaxing time at Bamana Bob's mid-February. We took a table on the patio to watch the sunset and enjoy the warm-to-us breeze. Our server, Tiffany, did a great job explaining the fish, preparation, beer selection, etc; and was humorous, helpful and efficient. As I'm back in cold and snow,... More

My husband and I were in Gulf Shores doing some house-hunting. Our realtor recommended Bahama Bob's for a great burger and wonderful location right on the beach. The BEST burgers ever! The staff was friendly and fun. It is obviously a local favorite. We even made our decision on which house to purchase while eating at Bahama Bob's. Special place.

This is within walking distance of our vacation condo. The restaurant is right on the beach and you can sit outside very pretty setting. The food is awesome each and every time. Last visit was in September 2014 but we go here every time we visit

We are locals and took our Arkansas guest to dinner here on Sunday. We did have to wait a few minutes to be seated but were immediately meet with a pleasant smile and an offer for drinks! Bushwackers and a Mudslide were ordered and hands down the best on the beach! These are made to order and not a premix... More

We were looking for a beach side restaurant with good food. What we found was a beach side restaurant with average food at best. Gumbo was average. 3 in our group got the coconut shrimp which was decent, but not 1 of the 3 liked the sauce that came with it. The fish was decent, but they don't have Malt... More
