A friend suggested we have dinner here. They eat here when in town and have had great steaks. Been disappointed many times with suggestions of "great steaks", but not this time!! Truly had a superb filet mignon and hubby had Mediterrean Grouper, that was equally delish! Loved that after dinner walked over and a few cocktails and listened to a really nice band and even danced! Great night with awesome food!

The restaurant sitting area is very nice and inviting. There is a bar on the other side of the restaurant that has a band in the evenings. So after dinner you walk over to the bar and have a few cocktails and listen to live music. Our dinner was delicious. My husband had prime rib and I had stuffed whole flounder. Our salad was prepared perfectly and dessert was yummy. Very nice upper scale but casual at the same time! Enjoy

I ate there last night actually , seemed a little formal when we first went in but good atmosphere.... Was told Leeanna would be our waitress and the hostess would notify her we was there.... Problem was the hostess told every single table Leeanna was their waitress and I noticed she had a huge party on the side that demanded most of her attention... The man who refilled drinks didn't come around until sand was coming out of your mouth and then it was with wrong drink... Because Leeanna was to busy with large party. She did check on us 2 times to ensure our food was ok. But at the end of our meal we waited forever on our check and finally lee Anna must have sent bar tender over to bring me the check.... I was past ready to go so I insisted she wait and take card with her and she returned and told me to leave every thing on table lee Anna would get it when she had time and she scurried off... Ok enough about the service.... Now the great part . The food was awesome. I had filet mignon and the other person had grilled chicken salad cooked to perfection. No steak sauce required !! It would melt in your mouth it was so tender and good. Good thing it would melt in your mouth , you had nothing to drink to wash it down with. Haha . Anyway I would recommend this place if you are more aggressive and demand good service. If you are passive or just want to wait on your self go to a buffet you will get better service there , but you will be missing possibly the best steak in all of gulf shores .

We haven't eaten here yet, but have closed the bar down the last 2 nights. We love the house band, Midnight Confessions. The group does professional versions of classic rock, but really let's loose later in the night with harmonica-driven blues. They ain't much to look at, but man they get down with soulful Southern blues.

The wait staff is very friendly and join in applauding the band. Our table server the first night was helpful with suggestions for snack food and drinks. The 2d night we sat at the bar and talked local points of interest and philosophy with the bartender. Great conversation and excellent margueritas. We're coming back tonight.
