“Patience Required”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

First place we ate at upon our arrival in Perdido Key. We didn't get there until around 9pm, and we waited for about 20 minutes to get seated. We were there close to 2 hours, though. This included ordering and waiting for our food and drinks. Our order kept getting messed up, too, with the waitress forgetting to bring things. We were not in a big hurry, but the order getting messed up 3 times and the waitress not getting drinks to us was irritating. They were not that crowded by the time we got seated...maybe the staff was tired after a long day, not sure. The food itself was ok.

“Tues is AYCE steamed shrimp!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Great family place with affordable beers/wines. This is our favorite Tues place - sitting on the deck, cooled by misters, watching Gary, the hering beg snatches of shrimp from the kids. Every day they run a All You Can Eat besides their regular menu, and so if you are hungry for steamed shrimp - it is Tues! Love their fish tacos, seafood marinara and the kick back style.

“Quick Service Excellent Food”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We stopped in on our way back to Pensacola from the Wharf movie theater. It was busy, but we were seated right away. Our waitress was awesome...memorized our orders and the table's next to us before turning it into the kitchen..and got them all right! ha The food was great, too, and love the relaxed atmosphere.

“Consistent. Decent oysters in June!”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

This is a routine stop for our time at the Gulf. We are closer to this Perdido Key location, so it's our most frequented SB location. Good service and good food. Daily specials are worth learning.

“Longest waits ever experienced”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Almost an hour wait for table on a week night and another hour for some of our good to be cold and our drinks spilled on one of us by Waite staff - bad night at this location for several folks. We will drive to the gulf shores location next time -
