The original ocean front tiki bar

The original and right on the beach. Its a huge old building that has room to party. I was here for lunch and it was quiet but delicious. The building is massive so I can imagine that during the evenings or spring break it must be incredible here.

This is one of the best and most fun bars I've ever been to. There are a couple different areas with a different atmosphere in each. Everyone just seemed to be in a good mood and having a good time, can't ask for more than that. There's a lady who has a taco trunk right inside the entrance and it... More

The oysters were delicious! I ordered the sampler so I tried them all. We wandered into the bar side with a country band and we had a BLAST. A must in my book!

Great cold beer and bushwhacker was best we had in the area. Oyster sampler was average, with Cajun variety being the best. Raw oysters were warm & dirty. Cheese fries and frickles were average at best. Would love to come back later at night and experience that side without the kids in tow. Unique place.

A must see on any visit to Gulf Shores. Food was outstanding. The Bama Burger I still dream about. Very good peel and eat shrimp. Oysters were great. Live music going on in several areas on each of our visits. Kids can come in during the day. Right on the beach. This place has history lesson on its walls with... More

This being such an institution, we just felt we had to drop in. Went the Sunday evening after the 4th. Was less crowded than we expected and were able to enjoy the live band. Several venues within a larger venue, so everyone behold be able to find something they like. Drinks were reasonably priced as well.

This was on my bucket list to go go. By far one of the best lunches I had, and the beer was nice and cold, I know why Kenny Chesney Loves this place

It's difficult to compare this place to any other because it's so unique. This is a beach bar that looks like a ramshackle, thrown-together building, or set of builidings with no obvious design intention. Go here for the atmosphere, music,and beer, not the food (terrible) or the mixed drinks.
