My steak was medium rare but very rare on interior. Husband had really nice blackened snapper caught fresh that day. One of the better spots in the area!

Nice atmosphere. Not to high brow and some of the dishes are more upscale than they need to be. The food is good though and I'll go again.

Ate here twice within a few days. Professional staff and outstanding menu loaded with local flavor! Relaxing atmosphere and just a short ride from downtown Fairhope or the Grand Hotel!!

Don't expect a fancy building with paved parking lot but for an outstanding meal in a quaint setting it would be hard to find a better restaurant in the Point Clear/Fairhope, Alabama areas. We visited early on a Sunday night and were seated without delay. A great selection of fresh seafood and steak entrees. Strongly recommend calling ahead for reservations... More

We were told that we had to go to the Wash House. The food was okay, but based on the reputation we expected much more than the experience provided. Maybe if the bar was not set so high we would have enjoyed it more.

It is very close to the hotel as the van will drive you. Extremely fast service and a nice atmosphere

Food overpriced but good flavor. Waitress Robin had poor serving skills and poor personality. Seemed to be very unhappy to have a job,

We ate here for our anniversary. We both ordered chateaubriand. It was cooked perfectly and the flavor was great, but the portion size of meat was small for my husband. The mashed potatoes were terribly salty and the 5 spears of asparagus woody and or stringy. The waiter was personable, however, did not ask if we would like more bread... More

We were staying at the Grand Hotel for the weekend and came to the Wash House to meet friends for dinner. We had a wonderful meal with delicious food and great service. 2 of us had the shrimp and grits - definitely a different recipe for shrimp and grits but very good. My husband had a steak and really enjoyed... More

A party of 8, we had an awesome time. The service was excellant, as well and the dishes we each had. The tuna- excellant, the scallops - excellant, the steaks - excellant. The bourbons, just the same! Just a wonderful, fun experience overall. We will certainly eat here again! Average cost per person, including drinks and tips was about $80.
