“Fun place for food and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Bahamas Bob's may not have the best food, or the best parking, or the best wait times in Gulf Shores. However, if you want good food in a fun atmosphere, this is a good place to go. It is right off the beach, with an outdoor porch (beachside) and an indoor dining room with a tiki bar theme. There is a good frozen drink (made by hand, not out of a per-mixed machine) selection, ample boat drinks and beer selection. In addition to fried seafood and sandwiches, they offer reasonably.priced (less than $20) fish entires, served grilled or blackened with green beans and new potatoes among the side options. Hence, you can eat a somewhat healthy meal here. Staff is busy and works hard to provide good service. Portions were good!

“Very disappointing...not at all what we expected.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Either the recommendations for this restaurant have been written by its staff, friends of the owners or the menu has changed drastically, as we were definitely not impressed. We were a table of 4 and a table of 6 this past week and nobody in our group had a great meal. The 'premade' side salads consisted of a small bowl of iceberg lettuce with 1 cherry tomato & 1 withered cucumber slice. For $19, the grilled shrimp and scallops were limited to 4 quarter-sized of each. The sides were lukewarm, overcooked canned green beans with bacon fat and 2 small, whole boiled potatoes served with 3 pats of margerine. My partner ordered the same as I but his had a stale bread roll included. The others in our group were equally disappointed. :( :( :(

“Consistent good food, service with a great view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

If you want take out go to mcdonalds. We visit at least once a year from Huntsville. This is a favorite restarant with great food and service. We have eaten here on several occasions and love the beach views and the food is supurb at a reasonable price. If you have room try the awesome key lime pie too.
