We ordered the Little Lagoon Sampler for 2. It was perfect for two people to experience the best of several types of seafood. Our server was super helpful on how to dig in. Great atmosphere out on the patio.

This was our second visit here while in Gulf Shores. Both times we were pleasantly surprised with the service and the taste of the food. I recommend that you put this place on your list for dinner at the beach.
