Shipp's Harbour Grill stands alone in a class of it's own serving Fresh Local Seafood and Certified Angus Beef. Shipp's offers beautiful outside seating on our upper deck with a birds-eye view of the harbor, a tiki bar, a covered outdoor porch, and an elegant but casual shabby chic beachside decor inside in our many dining areas. Shipp's is comfortable and casual with classy food. "Once you try Shipp's you'll be hooked"

Best Food in Orange Beach/Gulf Shores, BUT...

I have reviewed this restaurant before, and stand by my prior review. We have been here many times. This has the best food in the area. BUT... The recent service criticisms are justified. I do not mind some wait when things are busy, but the waiter we had on Saturday was just poor. He... read more

Went based on a locals' recommendation. We were seated within minutes of arrival for a Friday night we were impressed. Upon being seated upstairs, there was a man loudly asking when his check would finally come. Later we understood why. We ordered our food at 7:15, the total order for all 9. Salads and appetizer were served one hour later.... More

I am a local and eat at shipps's regularly...the food is great! The Bens blackened tuna is probably the best dish I've ever had! The service is always friendly and pleasant...I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an awesome meal with a beautiful view!

My husband and I have worked in the food service industry for years and are always excited to visit new places especially when recommended by locals. We were sorely disappointed in Shipp's Harbour! The food was very good, but our waitress was very disinterested in us, didn't seem to be able to answer any of our questions about the menu... More

Terrible Service, Terrible Wait, Terrible Food. Our oysters were served before we had drinks, and they were cold. I guess we got someone else's order...that was smart and walked out. 2.5 hours, and we left hungry. Fish tacos were bland, and despite being told I would get 3, I got 1. Salad was mediocre.

Service was so terrible, and the owner doesn't care. I ordered Sushi....waited an hour before they told me they didn't have sushi that night? We had to get our own appetizer plates, napkins, and silverware. Kicker? THEY WEREN'T BUSY! I'm a local, and this is by far the worst place I have visited in Orange Beach.

We decided to try this restaurant for lunch today based on TripAdvisor reviews and rating. Great weather and we sat on the open patio. The restaurant sits next to a marina and the view is relaxing. Get there early for lunch as the best tables fill up quickly. We enjoyed gumbo, fried shrimp and royal red shrimp. Food was tasty... More

My husband and I have eaten here twice and our appetizer's, meal and drinks were excellent! They also have wonderful sushi too! We highly recommend Shipp's Harbour Grill! It is very busy at dinner time so we went a little earlier and had no problem getting a table or excellent customer service.
