“Excellent service and food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

the atmosphere is amazing with super cool light fixtures, great beachy music playing, and not to mention an open fish tank in the center of the restaurant. For appetizers we had these chimichanga tasting things and also spicy oysters, both were good. I had the Cobia fish, which was very tasty. Our service was excellent all through our meal and as I said before the environment was great. We will definitely return!

“Perfect Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

Not crowded, so you get a nice table with a view. Great food at a price that seems to be the going rate in the area. $10-$12. Service that was smooth - not rushed and not slow (with 2 small kids, this was important).

The place is obviously built for larger crowds with a large open design and patio bar on the water. It is a fairly new restaurant, I think opened this year, so word might not have spread yet. Also, it might get more crowded in the evening. But for lunch, it is nice to walk right up to a perfect table without worrying about bothering someone right next to you (again, with two small kids, this was important.) The large fish pond/aquarium is also a nice touch.

At our table, we ordered the shrimp bisque, fish sandwich, hamburger, a lunch salad, kid's meals with chicken tenders and bread pudding. Everyone liked their food.

The waitress handled our table really well. Sometimes at these nice restaurants, families are treated differently by waitstaff, but they were very respectful of everyone's needs and tastes.

Final Note: Despite my comments about kids, this is not a "kids restaurant". The other parties were made up of one or two couples having lunch. I would also recommend this restaurant to couples.

“Beautifully decorated, food needs improvement.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

This restaurant was beautifully decorated. Very large space with fish pond in middle. Wait staff was very nice but our server didn't really know how the food was prepared and was unable to answer a few of our questions. The food was expensive, fresh fish was $28-$32, which I would not mind paying if it tasted delicious. However, the blackened fish was too much seasoning and grilled was very bland. Overall, we weren't loving our food. We would be willing to give it another try one day. Maybe food will improve with practice and time.

“Absolutely amazing service & Food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Cayman grill has an awesome atmosphere with great views of the water. Our server Bobby gave us outstanding service making sure everything was right. The food was AMAZING and at a good price. We had a table of six and everyone was extremely happy with the food and service. The Cayman grill is now our favorite restaurant in Orange Beach!

“Took us 2 1/2 hours to eat dinner.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

I have been to Cayman Grill several times, but last nights service was terrible. We got sat quickly. Then it went downhill from there. It took us 2 1/2 hours to eat. Our server forgot our appetizers and the food was cold when we finally got it. I was very disappointed last night.
