Service was backed up. Once we got our food it was really good. Burgers, fried beans, where outstanding. Can't beet the onion rings. Bushwackers helped with the wait.

We went for the cheeseburger and that's what we had. Now we don't ever have to go back again! How this place passes any Health Dept inspection is beyond me...the floors are dirty, the walls are dirty, the bathrooms are dirty, and the kitchen is dirty. They must have some sort of agreement with the Baldwin Co HD because a... More

So much could be made of this spot, but sadly it just is lacking. Perhaps a visit in another month or so might be better.

Great hamburgers, fries and onion rings!!!! Most come by boat where you dock and swim, eat and party. Dogs welcome......fun to just sit at picnic table and people watch.

The people that visit and work here are all wonderful. We come every time we are in gulf shores. They have good pub/bar food and of course the infamous bushwacker that is a must have. The atmosphere is laid back and peaceful and who doesn't love a place with free roaming dogs. Don't be in a hurry when you come... More

We have been twice now and love it. We of course love the cheeseburger and the children get chicken fingers. I would love to come on the weekend, but we always visit during the week. At this time it is not very crowded. Don't expect fancy, it is laid back casual. If dogs coming and going bother you, then this... More

A good place for a late lunch and a beach visit. The two main things on the menu are Cheeseburgers and Chicken Fingers, and of course adult beverages. The restaurants feel is as if you were marooned and found a great local place to eat, surrounded by white sand and shade trees. An interesting local place that I have heard... More

We spend two months in Orange Beach every year and discovered Pirate's Cove about six or seven years ago. It is out of the way and quiet. The building is just a ramshackle collection of rooms with huge outdoor patio. There are picnic tables and benches in the sand and a long pier to dock your boat. On a recent... More

We arrived by boat with some friends a little before lunch time on a Sunday. We got just ahead of the crowd and still had a good wait for our food. No problem, though with their delicious bushwhackers! They definitely have the best cheeseburger in the world, as authenticated by Mac MacAnnally and Jimmy Buffett! Pets are welcome and everyone...

This is a wonderful place to eat, drink and just relax. It is quite and off the main path. The view is one of a kind. It is a very dog friendly place and our springer spaniel loved it. There is even a self water station for your dog to get a drink. The staff is very friendly. We went... More
