We came in for lunch recently and we each ordered the catch of the day fish sandwich. It stated market price but when we got the bill we were astounded! The grouper had a $7.00 up charge on the regular $10.00 sandwich and since we asked for it to be grilled...that was an extra $1.00!!! Are you kidding me? $18.00... More

We are moving into the area and wanted to check out the local pub. We have found our future local hang out! For those that may be a bit snobby as far as interior décor, you will need to reduce your expectations. This is a basic, down to earth establishment that puts people and food first. Décor is not a...

Genuinely kind and happy staff welcomed us in to this back home atmosphere with better than "beach" quality food. Nothing went in my mouth that was not superb. Special was New Orleans Ribeye with a special sauce and shrimp on top. Steak was high quality. I've learned to describe the end result that I want (seared outside, red very juicy... More

We started dining here on our trips to Orange Beach twenty years ago and continue to go there one evening per trip. It was recommended by locals then and I continue to encourage folks to try it if you are looking for a relaxed, come-as-you-are restaurant. There are always 3-4 fresh catches to select from ( grouper, snapper, mahi, etc.)... More

This claims to be the oldest restaurant on Perdido Key and it looks it. The place has been around for a long time and the food and service are definitely keys to its success. The large selection of seafood is all well prepared and amply portioned. There was a live band we visited, hint ask for a table well away... More

This place is great. Owners are there; checking on guests, cleaning up, seating folks. There is entertainment every night, which is cool. They were very busy; our server, Kat, still took time to chat with us and share a few stories! We had raw oysters, fried shrimp, fried soft shell crab, mahi special and trigger fish. All delicious and nice... More

According to my friend who took me to dinner, little has changed since her childhood. It's an old timey restaurant that did remind me how it was to be in a place without a theme or decor. It was a comfortable setting and we had excellent service by Amber and the food was very good. Bonus for the evening was... More

We had lunch here during our visit to Perdido Key. Service was quick and kind. The food was just okay. Not bad, but nothing special, really. On future visits to the area, we'll skip this one.
