“Exactly as Advertised”
Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

This is a classic beach hangout. The rules are lax, the atmosphere is fun, and the service is great. We were there with a soccer team full of 11 year old girls and their parents. They allowed us to arrange tables anyway we wanted, and trust me - we gave the waiter a nightmare - and he handled it all with a smile and outstanding service.

The food was very good, and the value was good as well. It is a lot of fun, and our team had a blast.

“Cute Decor”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

4 of us went here for lunch. We had sandwiches, and although they were good sized, we thought it was over priced. $18 for a grouper sandwich, $15 for burgers and wraps. They let us have the beer specials from the Sunday football menu, even though it was Monday, which was nice. Décor was really cute, lunchboxes on the walls, and the pez ceiling was fun to look at. We made our wish, and stuck it in the wall. I thought they would have a lunch menu, but they did not. Service was very good. Place was empty. It would be a fun place for drinks when they have a band playing, but could run you some serious $$.

“Average Food”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

The food is just average, a bit over priced. The atmosphere is geared more toward young adults. It's a typical tourist lure restaurant.

“For kids.”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I ate here two years ago and it was just average. We decided to give it another try this trip to Gulf Shores. Again, the food was not great. I had the fish tacos and the fish was overcooked. Ok so the fried pickles were good but that's all. $50 for two adults, no dessert, no alcohol. Huge disappointment again. Will never be back.

“HUGE restaurant, and great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

This place is massive. We went on a Thursday night, and didn't have to wait at all. You have a great view, and the public beach is right out back. You can walk right out to the beach, and it's a CLEAN public beach. I had a shrimp po boy, and the shrimp were massive. Fish tacos were great too! It's a little expensive, but that's to be expected at the beach.
