Tucked away in a marina, this restaurant is definitely worth the effort to find. On the water, the view is only surpassed by the food and service. If u are a seafood lover, the Creole oysters and grouper ponchatrain is a must do. Sweetie and Rascal Pants

This is a great place with a fun atmosphere and great food. Our party had Grouper Pontchartrain, Creole Grouper, the Fish Special and the Filet. Everyone shared bites because we all thought our dish was the best. With a bottle of wine and one specialty cocktail, bill under $140. Will be back!

We had heard much about the Royal Reds shrimp. They were every bit as good as we had heard. Paired with smoked gouda mashed potatoes and green beans with almonds, the meal was wonderful.

We decided to try Shipp's on Wednesday, which is Small Plates Night, when they offer a nice variety of (not too) small plates all night at $5 per. The restaurant wasn't very busy when we arrived, so we got plenty of attention from Brittany, our server. We started with a sushi roll. I think their sushi is just about the... More

Since our trip was in October we had no trouble getting in this restaurant. We dined at this restaurant 4 times and decided we liked this restaurant the best. We were all interested in the seafood and especially the oysters. Service for the most part was good except one night when the waitress forgot to serve one of us bread... More

We went here for a Christmas party with a group of over 100 guests. I expected lukewarm banquet food at best but was blown away! Great service and even better food. The Grouper Ponchartrain was amazing! It was topped with shrimp, crab, and a lemon burre blanc and was definitely one of the best dishes I have had anywhere!

Went with friends who live in Gulf Shores, it's their favorite place. Started out with a good old fashioned and crab claws. Fresh rolls with cinnamon butter then sesame tuna with mashed potatoes and green beans. Literally have been 50 times to this area and great restaurants like this are still new to me. Great atmosphere on water. Warrants a... More

This is my new go-to anytime I visit the Gulf Shores! I enjoyed sushi and grouper pontchartrain. The ambiance is beach/pottery barn.

I have eaten here many times and am never disappointed. The house salad has an amazing dressing and the salad comes with the entree. The steaks are great as well as the grouper, which can be prepared many ways. The servers are helpful and efficient without being intrusive.
