My wife and I recently attended a wine pairing dinner on Nolans new outdoor dining patio. The food and wine was great as usual, but to eat on the more casual outdoor patio was awesome. There is something about being at the beach and eating outside that just goes together. cant wait to do it again.

This is one of those places that is hiding in plain sight.

It's more upscale than most beach restaurants, but reasonable, casual attire is fine.

We went on Sunday evening, Memorial Day weekend. With NO wait time, it was great.

The staff was friendly and helpful, our meals were delivered hot and on time.

I had a filet & baked potato. It's been a long time since I've had a steak delivered on a proper hot-plate like this was. Kept the steak nice and hot throughout instead of going cold. Was cooked excellent; easily the best I've had in a long time.

My wife had mahimahi I believe, I'm bad about forgetting exactly what she had, but it was a grilled fish and certainly looked excellent. She enjoyed it.

Pricing was the same as everywhere else we've eaten in the area. Which in relative terms, makes Nolan's a bargain for the quality of food and service they offer.

We will certainly be back.

First time vacationing in Gulf Shores. Husband wanted steak instead of seafood and I found Nolans on TripAdvisor. He said it was the best steak he has had in a long time. I had trigger fish and it was excellent. Service very good. Very nice change from the typical tourist hangouts.

The food was very good, and the setting is good. All three of us liked our choices, but found the prices slightly high.
