Well honestly Ive had better. Its really good food don't get me wrong, but the waitresses killed it for me. It seemed like none of them wanted to be there and never filled our drinks. We don't ask them to work there, they choose that so why be so unlikeable. If I owned the biz that's one thing I would... More

I have shared many meals when I traveled through here and have never had a bad experience. Love the fried foods and the ambiance of the place.

7 people at our table and everyone had decent food, not great. Me, on the other hand, got steamed shrimp. First try was over cooked and I couldn't peel them without destroying the meat of the nice large shrimp. No way I could have eaten them. They brought another order and these were under cooked. About 75% were as raw... More

the food wasn't great, but all he rude signs around the restaurant about kids...my kid are well-behaved but the signs make them look very uninviting. I mean it's overkill. we get it, you don't like kids....I m not sure they like adults either.

Bloomin' onion was good but a bit spicy. Wish we would have gotten the crawfish flat bread though because it looks amazing. Steaks were pretty good; one ordered medium and one medium rare. Both were exactly the same but they had great flavor. Shrimp was good. Sides were good. The "Paradise" blended drink was delicious!! I got a melon margarita... More

I stopped and asked an old lady where she would eat if she could eat anywhere on Dauphin Island. I don't care what it looks like I want good food. She thought and said there are two. JT's and Barnacle Bill's. I said just one... She said Barnacle Bill's. We went there at an off time, around 3:00. We were... More
