It's become a family staple that at least one lunch during vacation is spent at Bahama Bob's. We usually go in the afternoon to avoid the rush and enjoy a nice meal on their patio. Kids always enjoy the virgin cocktails and myself an adult one. Prices can be a little high compared to other restaurants in the area, depending... More

The building is not the most attractive on the outside, but don't pass it up. This place has just about anything you want and very authentic seafood. I would recommend the scallops or Bahama Bob Burger. There are about 40 seats on the inside and many more on the enclosed (maybe for the season?) deck. If you travel in busy... More

The service was a bit slow considering how uncrowded they were, but the food was pretty good if you like traditional seaside cuisine. I tried the coconut shrimp on the advice of a friend and it was good but too sweet for my savory taste buds.

It's pretty much mostly fried or steamed seafood. It's good but does not separate from the other 100 restaurants in the area with the same thing. Did I like it? Yes. Could I find it somewhere else just as good for cheaper and less hassle? Yes. It's on the beach which is the bonus here. Convenient if you have a... More

One of my favorite places to eat in Gulf Shores! It is very relaxed and right on the beach. The food is delicious, and the drinks are too!! Friendly service and fun atmosphere. Also, the prices are very reasonable

Bahama Bob's is a must-visit site for your next trip to Gulf Shores. Everything on the menu we tasted was great, and the environment is exactly what most people visiting the beach are probably looking for while on vacation. The atmosphere is festive, the location is right on the beach, and everything about the place is spot-on. We ordered the... More

The food is always consistent and good. The reason this place has been in business for a long time. Service was great. Expect a wait time but flows fast. This is one of those places where the locals eat. Can't get a better view if you eat outside. Inside the tables are very close to each other. Prices are reasonable.

My husband and I ate at Bahama Bobs with my children and parents during Shrimp Fest. The food was great and well worth the wait! Try the seafood gumbo - it was on point!
