This is a favorite, great food, fun atmosphere, usually very good service. Something needs attention, as last night our 5 meals took 1 hour 42 minutes order to arrival. Tables around us were experiencing similar. Nasty, as the wait reduces turnover, tips and the probability to reduce customers longer term This isn't Europe Needs some management attention Not wait staff... More

We've eaten dinner at Shipp's Harbor Grill on the past two Saturday evenings. On both occasions, the restaurant was extremely busy. The food was distinctive and delicious and our meals were excellently prepared. The Grouper Ponchatrain was especially good, but all the entrees were deemed delicious by members of our party. Unfortunately, the service did not match the quality of... More

Menu included approximately 8 choices of one appetizer for each patron, 3 fresh salad choices, approximately 8 choices of entree, including fish, beef and chicken specialty dishes and then topped it off with about 6 different choices for...

THREE STRIKES.... Third time at this place, and last. Seating reservation was not right ("table by the window" means just that), filets were undercooked, asked for our leftovers to be boxed- the leftovers were "lost." Although we were given a receipt that was wrong, it was eventually corrected. Our waiter tried, but this place consistently performs below excellent (three times... More

Several locals recommended Shipps as their favorite place. We liked it enough to go twice on our vacation--but wouldn't necessarily say it would be our all-time favorite place. The food is good, but not necessarily memorable. The service is good and the view is fantastic. Ordinarily we don't go out on Valentine's day but decided to try it here and... More

Thursday is steak night at Shipps. The steak is the best i have ever eaten. The restaurant is very very busy on Thursday therefore a reservation should be made. You will still have to wait for your table. The acoustics in the restaurant are not the best. It can be very noisy at times. The wait staff are efficient and... More

A "do not miss" eating experience on the Bay in Orange Beach, Ala.. Located directly on the Bay, this resturant sets the standard for seafood dining! Strongly recommend reservations in the evening to avoid long waits, although you can enjoy the bar while waiting. A complete seafood menu is available, and we particularly enjoyed the seafood platter. Prices are reasonable... More

While visiting Point Clear, AL, we drove down to Orange Beach to eat seafood. On the recommendation of a friend who has a place at Ono Island, we decided to have lunch at Shipp's. We eat gluten free, by choice, not because of allergy. We couldn't believe they actually offered a gluten free fried seafood platter. We rarely eat fried... More

We went with party of 8 on Thursday night when the special was filet mignon for 16.99. Steak was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. Sides of mashed potatoes and green beans also good. Wife had crab cakes which she said were very good. It's on the water so view is excellent. Reservations are a must. Service was quick considering how... More

Shipp's Harbour Grill stands alone in a class of it's own serving Fresh Local Seafood and Certified Angus Beef.
Shipp's offers beautiful outside seating on our upper deck with a birds-eye view of the harbor, a tiki bar, a covered outdoor porch, and an elegant but casual shabby chic beachside decor inside in our many dining areas.
Shipp's is comfortable and casual with classy food.
