“Paradise Found”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

I recently ate here with a few new friends and we all had a very enjoyable experience! Faith was our server and she was amazingly sweet and was great at her job. I ordered a seared Tuna salad and the "Surf and Turf" susi roll , both were delicious, The salad was such a large portion i took half of it home and look forward to eating tomarrow. The view is overlooking a big marina that is a nice place to walk around after your meal. You can enjoy looking at the big fishing boats and work off a little of the huge portions they serve you. I was too full to try the desert but i guess ill have to go back and satisfy my sweet tooth! Life is just so tough some times. Any ways if you are comming down to Orange Beach in the near future be sure to check this new resturant out !

“Pricey but well worth it!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Very nice restaurant, down-to-earth with an upscale ambience, located on the water. As an appetizer, we had fried green tomatoes with a chef's touch! Being from the South, this was not your typical southern fried green tomato! Presentation was exquisite, so delicious and delivered promptly. If you wanted to treat yourself to a special night out....this would be your place!

“Fabulous!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Great outdoor dining, really good, fresh food! Mixed drinks were great, beer selection was impressive. Noting again that the seafood was so fresh, it had all been caught that day. Loved it!

“Wonderful view, not so wonderful food!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Been visiting Orange Beach restaurants for 20 years on a regular basis. Went to this place several times when it was Zeke's. First, I was totally shocked with the redo. From the reviews said it was upscale. The quality of the work was not upscale. Tables made of 2x4's, sloppy paint work. The view was spectacular as always. Last but not least, the food. Most everything has a creole flare. My daughter got the shrimp and grits and only took one bite. I got the fresh catch of the day, Mahi. Definitely not fresh, very fishy! Could not eat it. Had it prepare with their bronzed method and there just wasn't enough of the breading or flavor on the fish or shrimp. My husband said to mark it off the list. The service was slow even though it was not crowded. Prices were a little high, too. Disappointing overall!

We strive to prepare delicious food using only the highest quality ingredients and fresh Gulf seafood and we do so in an admittedly "funky casual atmosphere". We are sorry if it was not to your liking and do appreciate your candid review because customer input will help us to improve and reach our goal to be the best restaurant in Orange Beach.

Sincerely,
B Barrios

“Wonderful food and view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

We so enjoyed all that we had (shrimp & grits, grouper special, fried green tomatoes, peach martinis, mamba roll). Great service, atmosphere and prices. A definite place everyone needs to go while visiting the area. We wanted to go again the next day.
