Have driven past the Gulf Shores location for years, never stopped because I thought it was a chain. Went here because of it's location near my hotel. Was Excellent......Great grouper and chowder. Will visit Gulf Shores location next trip.

My mother and I enjoyed dinner here on our first visit to Destin. We were celebrating her birthday. Sheri was our server - she was top notch as was the young man who kept our iced tea glasses full. The seafood platter was the BEST and the complimentary slice of key lime pie was a nice surprise! We'll definitely return... More

We had dinner here twice in one week when we were in Destin! Food was delicious and the service was fantastic! Will definitely go back next time we are in Destin.

A wonderful evening. Keith was an excellent waiter. Thanks very much. Thanks for the birthday key lime pie also! We showed up on a weeknight so it wasn't too busy and got a table by the window to enjoy a fantastic sunset on the marina. That view, a bottle of wine, great tuna and grouper entrees, and a fantastic blackened... More

We have eaten here four years in a row for vacation and it never disappoints. The desserts are phenomenal and you always need a dessert. Sometimes the wait is a little long but the food and service are worth it.

The atmosphere is fine. The staff was fine. The food is completely underwhelming and overpriced. Robert Irvine needs to come and rescue this restaurant impossible! The fish may be fresh but it is covered in terrible sauces that taste like mayonnaise. Étouffée was bland and shrimp seemed frozen. Sad twice baked potato on every plate. Don't even waste your time... More

Just the other night. There were four of us. We entered and stood. Two employees stood about 5 ft. away, near menu stand. I thought we should be getting seated. Ten minutes passed as we just waited. So we turned and left. We had a fine meal at another restaurant. We are Spring Breakers who visit each year. Four years... More

I just have to say it. This restaurant is for those who just don't know any better. Every single entree is covered up with glop and goo to the detriment of the fish, shrimp, crab or lobster. Also, sides are either fried and over seasoned or just bland steamed vegetables. They ruin decent food. The fact that they attempt finer... More
