Another of my family's favorite restaurants to eat in when we are on vacation. We eat here every time we are in town and often more than once. Outdoor and indoor seating available. The Kingston Rooster (sandwich or plate) is great but be prepared to share or take some home because it is huge. They have coin operated merry go... More

We've been to Calypso Joe's the last two years and it was by far our favorite destination for outdoor eating in Orange Beach. Unfortunately, we headed there two nights ago only to find it closed, with renovations going on and announcing two new restaurants "coming soon." I sure hope they bring back Calypso Joe's, as the food was really great.... More

Drove by after dinner at Tacky Jack's. The place is closed. A sign indicated two new restaurants would be opening soon.

Located in a marina with a menu trying to be "islandy". Food overall was good as was service. Handled our large group fairly well, only screwed up one order!

We came in on a Sun evening around 6p. Our party consisted of 4 adults and 5 kids. We were greeted and seated promptly. The chef personally came out and greeted us as well. He told us we'd love everything they had, especially the jerk chicken. Well, my wife ordered the jerk chicken salad. She said it was OK, just... More

Beautiful elegant setting right on the water at the marina. We had the tuna steak, which was literally the thickness of a piece of beef and perfectly cooked. The Cuban nachos were amazing, and the Cancun Grille was the best piece of fish I think I've ever had. It is served up with a side of plantains, black beans and... More

Like a previous review, I too was fooled by the advertisement and the look of the atmosphere. Thought we would try something different since it is advertised as a "Carribean Grille". Restaurant was hard to find at night. We ordered the conch fritters for an appetizer and it was good. Only had 5 fritters that were the size of a... More
