We dined inside and I expected it to be bigger and more roomy. But the food was delicious, I got the BBQ burger with fries and I was amazed on how big the burger was. The sweet tea there was the best sweet tea I've ever had in my life. I would recommend this place to anyone that likes good... More

Great atmosphere for the beach. The shrimp and oysters were so fresh and delicious. The wait staff are great and very receptive. Wonderful place to eat in Gulf Shores.

Excellent red beans and rice. Service fast and efficient, pleasant. Food was good. Large salad was tasty. There were menu items that weren't seafood related, also. Not over priced. Not cheap. Busy, a good sign. I'd go back.

They had a reasonable and quick menu. Very casual and food was good. Both open air and some inside a bit crowded inside.

Stopped on for lunch while on vacation Ordered shrimp and grits and it was awesome. My only quirk was the kids menu or a la carte menu as I wanted just a grilled cheese for my son, not a whole meal. They accommodated but the price was almost the same as the kids meal. Other than that, all was well.

Great food and fast service! We had the shrimp ettoufee and the fried shrimp basket. Nice spot to eat and then check out the souvenir shops.

We were going to sit outside and enjoy the day but a there was a group of screaming loud table drumming teenaged girls out there. Inside it feels insanely cramped. For the same money you could really pay for a much better atmosphere and higher quality food. $60 bucks for 2 adults and a teen. Crab claw lunch basket, shrimp... More

The food was really good when we visited, but the place was so super crowded it was hard to relax with the servers trying to wiggle through the small spaces between chairs to deliver food. It was a bit over crowded for my taste, but I could see why so many people wanted to eat here.

If you need a southern seafood fix, this is the place. There is inside and outside seating. For the most part the menu is fried food. I got the seafood platter which had a large selection of different foods and was good. My husband got the grilled shrimp tacos. I didn't think they were anything much to rave about. My... More
