went for dinner and were immediately seated, wait staff are very friendly and attentive. the food was prepared to my liking and very delicious. you need to be able to tolerate "loud" snowbird conversation at nearby tables. definitely a return visit is warranted.

Stopped in for lunch. Ordered a shrimp and oyster basket. the shrimp were overcooked but the oysters were good. The service was prompt and attentive. Overall, it's an average place. Not expensive, not cheap. Good for lunch, but not a place I would take someone to impress them.

When I left the shrimp basket I didn't have that feeling that you get after spending 150-200... More

Were headed back to Dauphin Island and stopped here about 3 to grab a quick bite. Don't know what made us turn in;maybe the ketchey name. Was almost deserted at this time of day save locals. Waitresses were super nice including ours which was in training. After perusing the menu decided why would you go to a place named The... More
