The roast beef Poboy is huge, fully dressed and smothered in debris. It is Delicious! The bartenders are great, the atmosphere is great, the times I've seen live music outside it has been great. Do yourself a favor and get a poboy and a cold beer at the Poon!

The place is tiny and really isn't set up for the kiddy's. But . . . if you are a Shrimp Po Boy fan - this is where the yellow brick road ends. The men of our party set out to try as many Po Boys the strip had to offer. At the end of the week, it was unanimous, the Harpoon serves up the Best Shrimp Po Boy in Gulf Shores. We highly recommend it. I'm quoting from the menu - "More stuff falls off of ours than they put on theirs."

We went late at night, and we enjoyed it very much. The seafood stuffed potato was great. It is small, but it was fun. The service was very good.

Stumbled upon this restaurant at the last minute. Ordered the half and half fried shimp/oyster platter. Was enough food for three people. Very Hearty!

Many visitors to Alabama's Gulf Coast rave about oyster/shrimp Po Boys.

You haven't tasted the best until you visit the Flying Harpoon, 1/2 block of Gulf Shores Parkway and benind the Oyster House Restaurant.

Here is the reason why:

Fresh oyster and shrimp purchased from fisherman daily and brought to restaurant by owners/employees!

A friendly Cheerslike atmosphere catering to locals and visitors with limited but delicious menu.

If in the area, do not miss this restaurant for lunch and dinner.
