Priced right, average seafood

Food was "ok," nothing extraordinary, but prices were reasonable. Waiter had trouble getting orders right. Nothing worth going out of your way for.

All you can eat specials almost every night. Bit crowded in early evenings. Family friendly atmosphere.

I had the popcorn shrimp basket with baked potato salad and it was great as always. My mom had the mani tacos which she said were too salty. That is my husbands favorite thing on the menu so maybe it was just her taste buds. Fast service and inexpensive.

I ordered grilled shrimp skewers with slaw; my husband ordered blackened fish with fries. They were both great, shrimp was spicy, slaw was awesome. Our waitress was wonderful also. This is not a dressy place, very casual. We will go back.

The grilled shrimp was delicious. I also enjoyed the shrimp slaw. The popcorn shrimp is also very good. They have unlimited popcorn shrimp on certain weekdays.

After reading TA reviews and hearing a great recommendation for the Orange Beach Shrimp Basket from other tourists, I was looking forward to a great seafood meal. Unfortunately, the experience was not a good one. The food was good enough, but our service was terrible. We are pleasant, undemanding customers, so we don't know why the level of service that...

Don't go in a hurry and don't expect the best service. The food is good and very affordable for a family. Very family friendly. If you can overlook the excess young staff and all that goes along with teenager waiters and waitresses, the food is good. Would return based on food and price, certainly not based on service.

This is the only place we ate at 3 times. The shrimp was fresh daily and the sides were out of this world. One side is the shrimp coleslaw. My wife isn't a coleslaw fan but she gobbled it up. They make their own tartar sauce that is also the best I've ever had. You'll love this place. The waitress,... More
