When they're open they have excellent customer service, great pizzas and cold drinks. If you have a small boat you can get there by going under the small bridge. I would suggest going up the Bon secour river by boat. It's off the beaten path and hustle of gulf shores which is nice. It's quite and you can enjoy the... More

Neighborhood type bar with food. It doesn't feel clean partly because it has plastic enclosure walls. I like the convenience but selective about food I order. Very casual.

So pleased to have found this spot via our kayak trip. This place has such a different atmosphere from the places along the shoreline. It's got a nice back bay feel. We stopped in after our kayak trip on a Saturday afternoon about 5 pm. We ordered the boiled shrimp for a starter. They were huge and delicious. Just lightly... More

We visited Happy Harbor because we had food vouchers from the kayak trip we'd taken with Wild Native, so we had an early dinner after beaching our kayaks. The service was pretty slow and forgetful, but we gave her the benefit of the doubt because she had our table of six, a large party of about twelve next to us,... More

Me and my family had gone to this resturaunt 2 years before with the food and service being awesome. We thought it would still be as good, but we were very disappointed. The service there was terrible even though we were the only people there. It took me at least an hour to get my meal. The food was very... More

We ate at Happy Harbor Oyster Bay Saturday. It is a local restaurant and bar on the water with music. I ordered one of their specials, a grouper Ruben. It was very good with a large grouper filet with plenty of melted cheese. My wife had grilled grouper and it was very good also. Both came with two sides of... More

This is a great location to relax, come as you are & enjoy a great meal. They have the oyster bar in behind the main family restaurant. Thurs, Fri, Sat & Sun they have entertainment. If it's just someone strumming the guitar & singing it takes the day from average to ahhhh. Thanks for helping leave the stress of the... More
