Myself along with family and friends have been making the 1.5 hour trip to this hidden gem several times a year.(for many years) We have eaten at Jessie's, which we like, but the less formal Cold Hole is more our style. You have the options of bar seating or tables. TVs spread through-out. Majority of patrons appear to be locals! Always a positive. Several of the servers/ bartenders have been there for years and they are always friendly and helpful with selections.
Now for the food! Great menu..something for everyone. We have never had a bad meal...some better than others..but always solid...yummy, fresh, well seasoned and ample entrees. My husband and I had a favorite entree the past few years... The lamb chops! So tender and juicy. Cooked with a great crunch on the crust and full of flavor! But..they have added a couple dry aged steaks in the past year and it's become our other favorite! Wish all decision were this fun to make! Any seafood special we have had has been just as advertised..fresh.
Worth the drive from Gulf Shores to get away from the overcrowded restaurants.
