Quaint local charm and wonderful dining!

Great spot to visit for local flavor and history. Chateaubriand was AMAZING! Melts like butter in your mouth! Crab cakes - WOW! Teresa behind the bar is crafty with her cocktails, too. A must if you're in the Fairhope/Point Clear area.

Had dinner at the Wash House. I has the Shrimp and Grits while my wife had the Red Snapper. Started with the wedge salad and ended the night with the key lime bread pudding. Service was great. Beer was cold. A great place to eat.

We had red snapper and scallops. They were the best seafood dishes we have had in a long time and we live on the Florida coast where fresh fish is served. Kids enjoyed their kids meals and were made to feel welcome.

The Wash House is located along the toney Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay. The restaurant is very professionally run. It has a welcoming feel. Our serer was quite knowledgeable about the menu and was helpful with recommendations. Drinks are overpriced and nothing was particularly interesting or original on their list of recommended cocktails. A few wines are reasonably priced, but... More

We had another wonderful meal at The Wash House this past weekend. We ordered the filet with sauce béarnaise and it was perfectly prepared medium rare and came with mash potatoes and asparagus, and the red snapper which was incredibly fresh and tender. The portion size was very large and the food was served right out of the ovens. Service... More

Everything we had was amazing, except the hour plus wait for our entrees that came out cold. Manager was super apologetic and offered to re-cook mine and brought us free deserts.

This restaurant was a wonderful experience, not only in the superbly cooked food but also the ambience. I had lamb and my husband had the chateaubriand. Exquisite. Also, I was not addressed as "Honey" "Dear" or "Sweetie". Our waitress, Andra, was perfect. I would add that we didn't care for the coffee, a little harsh, bitter for our tastes.
