“Great night out for couples”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

We went to Nolan's to have a nice, romantic dinner. The food and the service were wonderful. The only thing that wasn't that great were the small children who were screaming and not happy, which was not the restaurant's fault. I have kids but I wouldn't recommend taking them here as it's really not designed for families with little ones.

“Voted Best on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

The food here is delicious & very budget minded. It is an older restaurant but the locals all know about it. They bake their own bread to serve with their meals. They have steaks to seafood. Go no latter than 4:00 PM because they have long lines after 5:00 PM

“Nightlife”

I am sharing this for the Live Music. My wife and I went to hear the music and Dance. The band is a regular and plays decent music. We had a great time and try to go back each year.

“A nice place for a quiet dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

My mom and I really enjoyed Nolan's. The restaurant side is a very quiet place to enjoy a nice meal. The blackened red snapper with shrimp finishing sauce was a very good choice. Our waitress was wonderful. This would be a great "date night" restaurant. We will be back.

“3 hr. wait. Sorry won't be back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Went to Nolan's on a vacation in Gulf shores. Was recommended by a local. After a long wait in the pleasant lounge area, with live entertainment, we were seated. Jump 3 HOURS later to when our meal was served. No appearance or apology from owner or management. We tried to be as patient as possible with a sweet waitress who was unable to help the matter. We kept being told " there is a problem in the kitchen". Food was good, but it was just too late to enjoy. All restaurants can have a glitch now and then, but the right and proper thing is for owner or manager to come to the table to apologize and make it right, in one way or another. Sorry, we will not return next year. There are too many nicer restaurants in that area.
