“Disappointed-we left before ordering”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

We went to the Compleat Angler Friday night after Thanksgiving when Cosmos and Villagio had 1 1/2 hour waits. The restaurant was not crowded (It was 5:30 p.m.) and the waiter took our drink order and we tried to get him to take our meal order because we had a two year old. The waiter wanted to take only the drink and appetizer order and turn it in before taking the meal order. Then we waited. The waiter dropped by a basket of bread but darted off before we could get him to take the meal order. The bread was the worst we had ever eaten--heavy, dense, and cold. At this point we started thinking that if they couldn't do any better on the bread--perhaps we should reconsider our options. The menu is enormous but no one really found anything appealing. At this point, after waiting 30 minutes for the waiter to take our order, we made a group decision to bail out. We ate here last year and found the foot mediocre and after Friday night's experience, I don't think we will be back.

“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

What a delightful experience! Our server Jennifer was superb! It was happy hour so my $1.99 pi��a colada was particularly incredible! Started with shrimp cocktail-large fresh tasty shrimp. Excellent. Had the fish in a tin. Very mild flavor (not for those that want a very flavorful or salty fish) offset set by the spicy black beans over rice. Very good. The grilled green beans were terrific and the bread pudding sealed the deal. A wonderful dining experience.

“One of the best meals while in Orange Beach”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

We had a great dinner at the Compleat Angler. My husband had the ribeye which he said was the best steak he'd every had (better than steaks in KC). I had crab cakes which were also very good. Be sure to stay for the show on the Wharf.
