The Bahama Bob burger is the Best burger in town! Love their fresh shrimp salad and the crabby/patty sandwich. Also the crab stuffed baked fish is one of our favorites. Have never had a bad meal here and we usually eat at this place twice...during our beach week trip.More

This was our second time at Bahama Bob's. Great atmosphere, great food, and fantastic customer service. All at a fair price. They are usually very busy, but do a great job of getting folks in quickly. The coconut shrimp is amazing. We will continue to...eat here when in Gulf Shores.More

Visited on a very busy Saturday night but the bar service was phenomenal! There is a service only spot at the bar to grab drinks while you wait. We were able to grab seats at the bar in about 15 minutes and immediately had service....Food arrived quickly and was delicious. The bartender was top notch and made sure we were well taken care of and had timely refills. Great atmosphere and excellent menu selection. Will definitely return!More

We ate lunch and dinner here with 6 adults and 2 toddlers. Food was excellent. Dinner wait was only 30 minutes. No wait for lunch. Service was excellent. Food was pricey but what you expect for a restaurant right on the beach at the height...of tourist season.More

Very popular local place. Waited 1 1/2 hours for a table in the parking lot. Food was ok. Nothing special. Atmosphere nothing special. Being on the beach side I expected beach views.

Our family just chanced upon a website for Bahama Bob's in Gulf Shores, and are we ever glad we did. The seafood was fantastic! AND, reasonably priced. They serve you a lot of food. I had the fried scallops, my son had grilled scallops and...shrimp, and my daughter-in-law had coconut shrimp. They have the best french fries that even taste great the next day when heated in the oven. It is now our favorite place in Gulf Shores for seafood. Highly recommended.More

I would give this place 5 stars except for the hostess that took our name was pretty rude. She cut me off when I asked about the wait to ask me what my name was and then acted annoyed when I asked the question again...after giving her my name. Other than that, Kevin was our waiter and he was fantastic. He was accommodating and fun and helpful in picking foods and drinks we would like. The food was ALL delicious and the drinks were strong. Their Bloody Mary was good and we also had the mudslide and floaters-1 with PB and 1 with butterscotch-and that was good too! It's a LONG wait in the evenings usually (we've been twice but it's constantly busy) but it's honestly worth it.More

We had coconut shrimp, crab legs, and popcorn shrimp. The food was delicious and came out quickly! We waited at the bar until they called us to our table. We ordered frozen margaritas but they informed us that the margarita machine was down. So, we...ordered a beer instead. Then, the bartender got out the blender and made us the drinks we wanted and she didn’t charge us.More

We have been coming to Bahama Bob's for years and it is always just as good as the last time. My favorite is the Seafood platter. Oysters are hard to cook right but they do them perfectly every time. Service us excellent. Be prepared to...wait if you are going for the evening meal as it is so popular but so worth the wait. You can call in an order as long as they dont have a wait. We always stay right beside it or the next building down. We love it that much!!!More

After recommendations and the reviews we had high expectations…sadly underwhelming! The best thing we had were the onion rings. We had coconut shrimp, Cheeseburger, crawfish po boy, grilled fish and shrimp. The food was ok but nothing that would make me want to return. Definitely...not worth the wait…service was very good.More
