Small place a block off the main drag. My wife and i wanted to try a new place and seen this restaraunt from the main drag so we drove over. The place was a little tight on the inside but the people were really nice. We had their lobster and shrimp entree and enjoyed it thoroughly. Both lobster and shrimp... More

We enjoyed a very nice dinner here one evening. The wait staff took good care of us. The food was tasty and well-prepared. I had steamed shrimp and oysters with corn on the cob. Yummy!

This is my absolute favorite restaurant in Gulf Shores. Once I discovered it, I go every year. But take note, it is "The Steamer" - no fried food here. There is a shrimp and crab legs basket I get that is around $14 that is plenty of food for one lady. It is always very good!!

The food tasted good enough, however, it was expensive for the portions you recieved. I was suprised at the large side salad we ordered was the same shredded lettuce that later came on the shrimp sandwich. I ordered the crab cake platter and it too was a bit disappointing. The crab cakes needed the two cups of sau e that... More

Family of 4 with a 5 and 9 year old so we ordered the platter for 4. Platter had corn, potatoes, cole slaw, Conecuh sausage (my... More

We went here on 9/16/16 cause friends highly recommended it. Husband and I got the dozen oysters and the pick 3 different types. He got Rockefeller, Parmesan, and Alfredo. I got Rockefeller, Mexican, and Cajun Crawfish. We also got the Shrimp, Crab, and Parmesan dip. The dip was very good but only served with crackers. I think it would have... More

We swear by TripAdvisor reviews but this place was a real disappointment. It was our last time to eat out and turned out to be the least favorite place. It was very dark and smelled fishy, not a good fishy, a sort of low tide fishy. We should have just left. My husband ordered Royal Reds as they are his... More

My husband I went for dinner with another couple. It was very busy so we went next door to shop while we waited for our table. The food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their entree and apps. The "9 headed dragon" drink was really good! We will definitely be back when we visit Gulf Shores next summer.

When we asked for a break on our meal for covering my wife with someone else's food, we were told that they were sorry. The manager then came out and he was sorry and couldn't give us a break. The other guests couldn't believe it either. They have lost my business and referrals. Bad way to run a business.

We highly recommend the boiled shrimp dinner. I believe it had 24 large shrimp, potatoes, corn, and sauces. The price was around $15 for all of that! My daughter and I shared the crab cakes and they were good. I liked that they weren't full of breading. My son got the grilled shrimp and loved it.
