We got take-out in an assortment of different signature items: Fried shrimp, steamed creole shrimp, fried grouper, fried snapper, fried cobia, and of course french fries. Seafood is priced by the LB with a $2 upcharge for frying per LB and a $1 upcharge for steaming per LB. The steamed shrimp was great with the creole seasoning being just salty and just spicy enough. The fried shrimp was good. The fried fish was decent but overcooked. The fish fillets are pretty thin, presumably to cook quickly, but all were past done and not as moist as they should be. If you have a long drive, like we did to Orange Beach (20 minutes), fried fish packed in styrofoam containers (even with vent holes) will not be as delicious when you get home. Saying this, the fries were very good - 1 box was plenty for the 6 of us. Were we to go again, I'd get the steamed and fried shrimp and skip the fish unless you're cooking the fish at home.
A small gripe is that they do not have an online menu. If you haven't been there before to get a "real" menu, you need to call and have someone at S & S read you of available fish and prices which is a bit of a pain. Also, one of their available fish is cobia, which is a great grilling fish. Unfortunately, S & S seafood will only steam or fried it for you and fried cobia is just not good eats. I'm surprised that they tell diners that they don't fry cobia as this is not the best way to prepare that fish. Broiling is a much better option if you can't grill it. We got it fried, and let's say that no one was a fan.
Trip Advisor doesn't give the option of a 3 1/2 circle / star rating, but I would have rated S & S 3 1/2 if I could have done so. I gave them a 4 rating as I thought that they were closer to "Very Good" than "Average".
