Good Food & Charming Ambiance

When we visited we had to wait a few minutes even though we had reservations. The food was good, but the service was mediocre. I would go back because of the food and the rustic elegance of the place.

Great food, atmosphere and service. The only feature that was off a bit was service due to a packed house and a large party. You do need reservations. We will definitely eat here every time we visit Point Clear.

Excellent food, cozy atmosphere and spot-on service. The oyster appetizer was one of the best things I've ever had. We intend to go back every time we're in the area.

Delightful dinner and cocktails. Filled with some tourists but mostly local folk , this contemporary kitchen puts up to date twists on southern classics.

Friends told us the Wash House was a Fairhope "must" but our dining experience exceeded our lofty expectations. Every aspect of our experience was top shelf. Comfortable. Classy. Double yummy.

The service was good as was the food. It was very difficult getting across the parking lot of rocks in a wheelchair. We looked at the menu online before going and it was different then the one at the restaurant. The service and food were very good but I would not go back if I had to use a wheelchair.

It has great food, atmosphere and service. Seafood is fresh and originally prepared. I really think you'll love it. All you have to do is check the crowd and their faces. Reservations are necessary. It's small and quaint. Food was delicious and not overpriced.

We had a party of 8 and were seated in a round table. I love round tables. They're so conducive to conversation. Food, service, and atmosphere were excellent. The parking was a bit challenging but considering the time of year it was to be expected. Positively one of the best restaurants on the eastern shore.

Great food and service. The Grand Hotel should take a lesson here. They are pitiful. The Wash House has nice ambiance, quality service. Excellent food and nice selection. The drinks were a very reasonable pour.
