I'm convinced! Best restaurant in South Alabama!

Wrote a review of the Wash House a couple of years ago in which I called it “average”. Two subsequent visits have shown me that our first dinner there was the result of either them having an off day or me having an off day. Our second visit was made special by the server, Quentin.

My wife and I had dinner here on a road trip home to Denver from Florida. Honestly, what caught my wife's eye about Wash House was a reviewer's rave about a Manhattan cocktail she had at the bar. Since we prefer to eat at the bar anyway, we decided to give Wash House a try. So glad we did! We... More

We were with a group of about 25 people. The food was great. It was well prepared and cooked to perfection. The seafood was fresh. The service was also very good.

So we pulled up to this place for a work dinner, and I have to admit I was scared. The restaurant looks small, dilapidated, and -- very rural. Stepped inside to a completely different place, though. The interior is rustic, and clean. The food was outstanding all around. I had a blackened red snapper with collard greens, and the food... More

My husband and I recently dined there and the service and food were great. I'm writing regarding my cocktail. Usually I begin with wine, however, decided to venture into cocktail menu and I selected the Manhatten. For some reason I will remember it as the best cocktail I have ever had and can't wait to return just for that treat!

Too spicy, flavor overload - shrimp n grits/ scallops dishes ... Simply needs hot likeness on order.... It was horrible today. But easy fix.

The title just about says it all from entry to exit we had a great dining experience. Attentive but not intrusive staff, good menu with specials as an added attraction. We will definitely return on our next trip.

This is a great facility, nicely decorated, but I always find the food to be too salty or too something. On our last visit, I had the filet and it was heavy; the Bernaise was salty. My wife had fish which she said was great. I don't know. Maybe it's just me. But the Wash House is always almost excellent.

I love the Wash House. This is the place to take your significant other. We love to use the Wash House as a good place to get away just the 2 of us. I'm a steak lover, and the Wash House always has the best.
