This is one of those places that I always visit when I'm in Gulf Shores because it offers a nice alternative to seafood. The Jamaican Burger is amazing and I always end up craving it for weeks after leaving. Whatever it's marinated in is addicting. The decorations are also pretty cool. Fish, lots of artwork, and a tiki bar. But... More

I saw some good reviews and t was close to or condo, so we gave it a try. I was not impressed. I had the shrimp po' boy and my husband had the Bon Secour platter. They served huge portions, but it wasn't anything special. The service was good, but that could have been due to business being slow. I... More

Decided to take a chance just by looks...wasn't swanky/fancy but looked fun. After lunch hour with 2kids and 3 hungry adults. Everyone very pleasant--nice waitress (especially after 5 yr old spilled lemonade)...portions large, food hot and tasty. Husband had ribs--we had chicken sandwiches, burger and tenders...loved the hush puppies! Cold drinks with refills---couldn't ask for more. We took a peanut... More

Just finished eating at Gulf Island Grill. It was really good. Reasonably priced considering where we are and we ate seafood. Waiter was super helpful with selections. Highly recommend this one!

Had dinner here tonight with the family and was not impressed with the food. Both my wife and I had the parmesian grouper and neither of us liked it. Still not sure it was really grouper for the price and size of fish. Plus it was not very thick like a groups should be for the size of fish they... More

We ate at this restaurant recommended by the staff at our hotel. We were not disappointed. Our waiter was helpful, informative and "laid back." He answered our questions about which specialty drink to have (note: he thought the first choice among their specialty drinks - can't remember the name! - would be too big for one of us, but we...

Lots of good selection on the menu. My brother ordered the ribs and said they were some of the best he's ever had. Pretty laid back and inexpensive. Good place to go for a casual meal.

We visited on a Saturday for lunch. The place was not crowded at all. Maybe 5-6 other tables occupied. There were 7 in our party. Everyone ordering very simple. Fried shrimp, fish sandwich, etc. It took well over an hour for our food to come out. Totally unacceptable as everything was fried and they were not crowded! When the food... More

Our kids love crab legs and this place was recommended for them. They did not disappoint. Me, I'm more into fried seafood and here they are just average. Generous portions, though. Hush puppies were mediocre and the cole slaw was meh. but, they just may have her best sweet tea in the south and the service was outstanding. We came... More
