The food was delicious. But the service was amazing! This was the friendliest staff I have ever encountered. Call out to Brendle and Teresa! I would recommend a stop here to anyone visiting Gulf Shores!

Great food, big selection! Ate here with my husband and some friends, my husband and I got the seafood platter and it was big enough for us to share and still have food to take back. Highly recommend this place!

Wife and I had the all you can eat fish and shrimp special for an after church lunch. Food was delicious, including the fries and slaw. Service was great and the water view was nice. So good that we returned on another Sunday for lunch.
