This is one of our favorite restaurants in Gulf Shores. It is directly on the beach. There is an inside dining room and an outside unheated porch with roll down plastic coverings. We wish they would install heaters on the outside porch for the winter months because it can be chilly. The Bushwackers here are phenomenal! They are individually made... More

Food was excellent. Our waitress and the rest of the staff was great. When we got there the place was packed so we sat outside. The staff was great checking on us and offering to move us inside if too cold.

We had a fabulous lunch during a slow weekday and LOVED it! We dined on some great appetizers. They have a diverse and FUN menu and some rather different items (like the gator tails). The coconut shrimp and crab claws were amazing. We experienced great service as well. For the premium location (RIGHT ON THE BEACH, uncommon for Gulf Shores... More

Our waitress was outstanding! This place was recommended to us for the fried oyster Po Boy. Our waitress said she would not recommend it - said the Fish Fingers were excellent and she ate them everyday. If I didn't like them she would get me something else. They were very good / can not recommend the collard greens (although to... More

Delicious food....and very generous portions. My husband loves to eat and said the Bahama Bob's burger was the best he's ever had. The staff is very friendly and efficient. It is crowded, so you might have to wait, but it will be worth it. Definitely a must when you're in Gulf Shores.

If you go for lunch get there right at 11:00 am as the seating goes quickly. Food is great, and big portions. We spend $100 with tip for 2 adults and three kids but had enough to take some back to the hotel and have a snack later.

They sit on the beach. The weather was cool and breezy so we sat inside. Small bar. Service was very good. Nice variety to the menu. Husband had the Bob burger with fries. I had lunch portion of popcorn shrimp with cole slaw. Portion was big so took half home with me. We only had time for one visit but... More

We tried several items; the gumbo and jalapeños for appetizers. The gumbo was very good with lots of seafood, sausage and okra. The poppers were just OK. We then had the shrimp and scallops which were both very good. The meal came with potatoes and corn, neither of which were anything special, but we came for the seafood and gumbo... More
