Good value, casual atmosphere but tablecloth service

Very good and close to Marriott property. Pleasant staff and good value. Crab cakes had a bit more filler and I prefer; catch of the day was excellent

I always want to love a restaurant I try in a new city, this was a like versus a love. I enjoyed myself immensely in the total experience but can't go head over heels as 3 of us were served barely warm gumbo as our first course (the other 2 had salads which they had no complaints with). The shrimp... More

Not worth the wait or money. Staff is not near what the grand staff is going to give you. Food is good. Many people have functions their like rehearsal suppers.

We took a group of 9 with no reservation. They found us a table. We ordered fried oyster, shrimp and beef spring rolls appetizers which were all completely eaten. The bread and sweet butter are sooooo good. My hubby and I had the filet which was perfectly cooked. The mashed potatoes were a little too soft but otherwise it was... More

We went here based on several local recommendations. The food was delicious! I would make a reservation. We didn't, they figured out how to fit us in at the bar but we got lucky. The shrimp stack and seared tuna were both delicious!

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
