is my usual first stop when i get to the beach. situated right on the beach. usual beach fare. grilled shrimp is very good as are the peel and eat shrimp. drinks are quite strong - the Bahama Bob will knock your socks off (have a designated driver if you are having one of these). staff is outstanding. friendly, helpful and efficient

We ate at Bahama Bob's while on vacation in Gulf Shores last week and we are STILL dreaming about the gumbo. We have gumbo everywhere we go and this was by far the BEST gumbo we've tried. The fried shrimp was excellent and the popcorn shrimp was just lightly breaded so you actually could TASTE shrimp!
It is ALWAYS long wait so we would recommend going and getting your name on the wait list (it's about an hour-1 1/2 hours) then just go back to your condo and chill out. Head back in about 30-45 minutes and you're all set. It's worth it. GO TO BAHAMA BOB'S!

It's not the best burger I've ever had, but the service and atmosphere was great! Right there on the beach, and of course right next to our hotel room, it was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone. Do try to avoid the supper rush though, we waited once for an hour and forty minutes, but we weren't disappointed with the wait. It does get slightly crowded, but try to sit on the deck if you can!

Family of seven 1 hour 45 min wait on July 7th around 6pm. We ordered bar drinks while we waited. The Bahama Bob drink was really strong (wife says it made her nostrils burn)lol. They glady added more juice:). We ordered crawfish tails for appetizers which was slightly over deep fried but good. For dinner wthe ordered crab legs and I ordered Island Combo which was supposed to be 1lb of reds and 1lb crab legs but they were out of reds and substituted steamed shrimp which was geat. We all enjoyed the crablegs were very tender and easy to crack. They did forget our etizerpepotatoes that came with it but happily brought them out when we asked about it. They are extremely packed out with every time we drove by. So with that in mind, it is worth thr wait. Also keep that in mind when they make mistakes:). Very friendly staff and we will definitely be back. We also tried the alligator tail appetizer was which was awesome! All in all great family meal eat outside or in. If ur visiting Gulf Shores this mom and pop shop needs to be on your hitlist!

Menu has a variety. Right on the beach. Service was spectacular. Hard off to Denise (waitress). We had everything from a great burger to shrimp and fried oysters. It was great.
