I've been eating at Bahama Bob's for several years. It's the first place we go to eat the minute we get to Orange Beach. Love the patio. Dining room is a little small. Very casual! :))

My children recommended this place and we all went there. We got outdoor seating and the temperature was about 80 deg with clear weather. The food was outstanding! My son said it was his favorite restaurant that we had been to. He had grilled mahi-mahi, my wife had the Bahama Bob Cheesburger and I had the grilled chicken sandwich with... More

Don't visit Gulf Shores without a trip to Bahama Bob's. A truly iconic Gulf Shores hot spot located on west beach. We were lucky enough to be located two buildings down from Bob's so it was a short walk for us from the beach to Bob's for lunch or a drink. Food is typical fried bar food but just a... More

This is a great location in walking distance from many condos. It is a convenient location on the beach. It is not very big, so it fills up quickly. The popcorn shrimp salad was excellent. The service was very good even when very busy.

We went with friends, group of 6, three couples and had an excellent time sitting on the deck outside. We were there for lunch and tried several of the menu items: crab claws, gator bites, cheese sticks, jalapeño cream cheese poppers, fried mushrooms are a few of them. We visit here every year and never miss Bahama Bob's.

Bahama bobs has great food with an ocean view. I love their shrimp po boy and my husband loves their mahi mahi sandwich. Also we always get alligator bites as an appetizer.

Sits on the beach with gulf views. Small and busy place. Had the Bahama burger it was tasty and topped with pineapple slice. The salad looked good that my mom got. Jalapeño poppers were good as well.

I try to go to Bahama Bobs at least once every trip. The best seafood. Lunch after hanging on the beach that morning is a great idea. Crawfish tails or a shrimp po boy. You can't go wrong.

We visited while on vacation. My husband has a shellfish allergy and they were very careful and made sure he didn't eat any cross contaminated food. The kitchen forgot to send out a kids meal so the management gave it to us for free plus a milkshake. The food was good. The fish was very good!
