Description: Shipp's Harbour Grill stands alone in a class of it's own serving Fresh Local Seafood and Certified Angus Beef. Shipp's offers beautiful outside seating on our upper deck with a birds-eye view of the harbor, a tiki bar, a covered outdoor porch, and an elegant but casual shabby chic beachside decor inside in our many dining areas. Shipp's is comfortable and casual with classy food. "Once you try Shipp's you'll be hooked"

This is where the Bayside Grill used to be - all that's changed is the name. Same great location, great food, great service. Brent Burns is still showing up playing his Buffett-esque music! We started with the smoked tuna dip which was fabulous & I also got a cup of gumbo which was very hood. My wife got the Grouper Pontchartrain, which was delicious & I got the Tuna Taco which was very good though VERY spicy. Our daughter got the kids fried shrimp which she seemed to enjoy. My wife & I skipped dessert, though I hear the key lime pie is terrific. My daughter got a large, warm, fresh baked chocolate chunk cookie drizzled with warm chocolate sauce - delicious but rich - she couldn't finish it. Great view. Great service. Enjoy.

I've eaten here twice. Each time was a great experience. The service was great and the food was fabulous. The setting is beautiful with all the boats. The Royal Reds,crab claws,chilled lettuce wedges and Chocolate Fudge Brownie with ice cream were all wonderful. The price was comparable to others in the area but the food, presentation and location was a notch above the rest.

Our large group enjoyed two meals at Shipp's Harbour Grill...amazing seafood prepared to perfection. The chef is top of the line. The waitstaff took care of our group of 22 in an excellent manner.. Can't wait to eat there again and again.

Today was our fourth visit to Shipps Harbor Grill. We've always liked the food (grouper Ponchartrain, grouper tacos and their killer hush puppies are our favorites) and we very much enjoy the setting overlooking a marina and the intercoastal waterway.

However, the service has ranged from excellent (once), average (twice) and dismal (today). When things go wrong here they apparently go very wrong. The hostess was on a non-stop apology tour the whole time we were there. Our drink orders arrived incorrectly. We didn't register a complaint but our food (none too hot) showed up after a couple at an adjoining table who arrived after us had already eaten and were settling up their bill. The people behind us were comped a future meal after waiting 90 minutes for 12 oysters. Everyone was very apologetic and courteous but still, the entire afternoon was obviously a disaster back in the kitchen.

The prices here are hefty enough to expect more consistency in service.

The food is really good, very well prepared. The five of us ordered 3 grouper ponchatrains, 1 steak with mushrooms, and 1 oysters with parmesan and a bowl of gumbo. Plus we shared 2 scrumptious creme brulets for dessert. Everyone was very impressed with how good the food was and the efficiency and friendliness of the wait staff. A good find for good food in Orange Beach,AL.
