We had business lunch at River Shack as it was recommended by a colleague. The place has a nice open deck, but not so clean. The food was not so tasty. The waitress was very friendly though. Overall an ok experience but will not come...More

Was taken here by friends that live in Mobile. Great views, food and service. Be sure to go around sunset for some good views.

Great location for dining directly on Dog River, however I was very disappointed with the food. I did not like the taste of the gumbo at all. The shrimp poboy was average. This was our first visit and I’m not sure if we will return....More

An outdoor meal by the Dog River to hear some great live music sounded like a good idea. I was underwhelmed by the food menu; really the only thing that seemed appetizing to me was a smoked tuna dip but it was served only with...More

FYI the chicken fettuccine is actually spaghetti noodles, not fettuccine. Or it was when we went. We had a group of five and not a single person was pleased with their food. $14 for alfredo that clearly came from a jar, everything was clearly frozen/processed...More
