“Fun atmosphere and great food”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

We wanted crab legs. Read some reviews saying that Bahama Bob's was a good place to go. We were not disappointed! We had a short wait for a Friday night, a super friendly waiter, and were very pleased with our crab legs. Pricey...but that seems to be what they are most places. We also had a shrimp poboy which had so many shrimp on it that they were falling out and had to be eaten separately. Will definitely come back to Bahama Bobs!

“An out of place, blast from the past!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

Bahama Bob's is best described as "an out of place, blast from the past". It's located beachside, between two multi story condos/hotels and looks like it was originally built in the 50's. Their shrimp salad, stuffed or on a sandwich, is to die for. Their servings are large and it's a good value, when you factor in the quality. This is my families second visit and we will return the next time we are in the Gulf Shores area.

“Good Food, Small Place”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Visited the restaurant based off the Trip Advisor Reviews. Found that the place was a little small and crowded. The food was good and service was friendly. Just not a stand out place for me.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Visited Bahama Bob's again this past week. Blackened shrimp on a skewer was served with new potatoes and green beans. Delicious! My husband had the fried seafood platter and loved it as well. Beware: parking is atrocious. If you arrive after 5-5:30pm, expect to wait an hour or more, but that's how it usually is at the beach.

“Worth the hour wait!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

We decided to try Bahamas Bobs from the online reviews. The only downfalls I could see were the parking and size of the restaurant. You have to park across the street since there is hardly any parking by the restaurant which is quite small and makes for a long wait. The food and service was definitely worth our wait. My family ordered crab legs, steak, and coconut shrimp. All were wonderful! The crab legs are huge and cooked in a crab boil that makes for a little spice but not too much. They also give you 1 and a 1/2 pounds where most places only give one pound on an entree for the same price. You get two sides per entree and prices seem comparable to others in the area. The food is definitely worth waiting for in my opinion!
