“Bar, Shop, & Church?! Love it!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

The Flora-Bama is my first stop after landing in Pensacola-it's become a tradition! I always have ONE of their Bushwackers. I stress the word one because they are strong, but delicious. It's a fun scene at any time if the day or night. The crowd has a mix of everyone. When I was in Gulf Shores over Thanksgiving, I even attended the Sunday church service. To my surprise-it had an excellent message (music ok but we are in bar....on the beach). Highly recommend for a pit stop if you're in Orange Beach or Gulf Shores!

“Went for the experience and loved the food”
Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

We went here because we had heard how unique the place is, which is true. We didn't expect to also love the food! We had the fresh catch poboy and the Cajun seasoned oysters and they were both delicious.

“On the border...”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

The only thing missing at Flora-Bama was Jimmy Buffett!!! And being on the state line, they can boast of an "Interstate Mullet Toss." I read somewhere that it is on CNN's top 50 Beach Bars in the world, so I HAD to check it out. Awesome Bloody Marys and fresh shucked oysters. Order a "Dawg" and you get it served with fries on a souvenir Fora-Bama Frisbee. Can't beat that! Live music starts at 3 p.m., along with bikini contests, etc. Great tourist spot, but I can't help but believe that I saw a few locals there as well... Well worth the visit. Would do it again! $9 a dozen, shucked. Say what? Cheap n Gud...

“gotta go, gotta experience”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

this is a must see place. if you every imagined a bar that had the energy of spring break, this place. it gets all the party people, and yes, it is off the chain! great local seafood, multi level bars, local bands, views of the gulf. very helpful staff. had a real-deal crayfish boil going last weekend. the taco truck has great home cooked tacos, and great guacamole.

“Great shore lounge!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Large tiki bar and restaurant that runs specials and events nearly every day of the week. During the winter months the lounge runs weekly events for snowbirds.
There is live music many days of the week.
