“Great food and even Greater Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We actually ordered out...had a seafood platter for 6- the food was excellent and very fresh. The cook forgot to include the oysters which i was particularly looking forward to and when I called back, the manager was very nice nice and apologetic and offered to remake it (more than what would have come) if I was back in the area. I eventually did get it and it too was delicious.

“Great Food and Service Plus Good Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Raw Oysters is what we went for and we were not disappointed. Tried a few other items on the menu -- all really good. We drove a couple of hours, from Florida, and it was worth the trip. Outside, covered seating as well as inside, too.

“No Fried Food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

This restaurant is great when you want to get away from traditional fried seafood. The grilled shrimp are exceptional and the baked parmesan oysters and oyster Rockefeller are really good. Staff on duty the day we were there were very friendly and engaged you in conversation. I recommend this restaurant.

“Hidden gem in Gulf Shores”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Went into this restaurant on a whim and thoroughly enjoyed it. We enjoyed the view of the Gulf from the patio. Food was excellent. However, the kids were a little disappointed because they do not have any French fries or fried shrimp. Service was average; however, we sat on the porch and away from the crowd. It's only been a week since our visit, and in ready to drive south for the mahi mahi sandwich!

“Twice in one day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

The steamed seafood in this area has been lacking. I've seen this place for years but never stopped, maybe because of all the people sitting outside and the restaurant being sandwiched between souvenir shops. I finally stopped by myself and had the place to myself. So good I brought my wife here for dinner. Great steamed shrimp! Deveined with the shell still on so with a little practice the shell comes off in one piece. A word of caution... don't go grabbing a shrimp as soon as they bring them out. It didn't take me long to drop it. Steaming hot. Good crab legs, decent potatoes and a couple of small pieces of sausage. The steamed shrimp were good but of course they're going to shrink into little bitty things. Nature of the beast. Great service in a cool little establishment.
