Often overlooked Fairhope, R Bistro is an outstanding restaurant. A culinary treat from delicious French Onion soup thru amazing dessert selections. Make a point to eat here... you’ll be glad you did.

Stopped in for late lunch after driving all day. The shrimp and grits was excellent - probably the best we've had. Server was attentive, prompt. Will definitely return on next Fairhope visit.
