We have been trying to try many different places to eat. We went here for lunch. We decided to sit outside on the patio. We were first told that the specials that had been advertised in the paper where not being offered. We got our drinks and ordered our meal. After 20 minutes we asked the waitress if it would...

Four of us dined here. Later we learned that the Steamer just over in Perdido Key is excellent, but this place leaves much to be desired. Acoustics are horrible; so loud and noisy we could barely hear each other across the table. Crab cakes were blah....new potatoes were way over cooked, and the scallops St. Jacque were bland. We certainly... More

Stopped for lunch - had mixed oysters 6 raw - 6 Rockefeller to share as appetizer than I had the grilled fish sandwich - very tasty but could have had more fish on it. My friend has shrimp sandwich - very substantial serving and she enjoyed. Expensive Bloody Mary service in plastic glass...not worth the price have a beer! Drink... More

Ate here several years ago in the summer and it was pretty good. Perhaps a better time to visit than winter. The restaurant was cold, floors dirty, food overdone! Salad from a bag.. say " you get what you pay for." Not here. Paid too much for less than adequate!

If you are tired of fried seafood this is a place to visit. Also offers steamed veggie plate suitable for vegetarian diet. Finger licking good seafood just few steps away from Gulf Shores public beach. Seating available inside and outside. Friendly service , reasonable prices, relaxed atmosphere. Will go back.

This was out first and last visit. There were no positive comments that my wife and I can offer. Between the two of us we ordered a dozen parmesan baked oysters, 2 clusters of snow crab legs and 2 crab cakes. Sides that came with our meals included boiled red potatoes, cold slaw and boiled corn on the cob. Oysters... More

This was our favorite place that we ate at Gulf Shores while we were there for a week. We love seafood and it was great to find a good restaurant that had choices other than fried. We loved the parmesan garlic backed oysters. We sat outside, we were nearly the only ones there and we had to go in and... More

We TRIED to eat here. Were told to sit anywhere we wanted. Sat down at a table and waited twenty minutes. No one even came out with menus or water. We were clearly forgotten and unnoticed. Gave up and left.
