“best seafood in town!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

The food here is always fresh. In a city where you get very little good seafood this is one of the best places to go. Everything is made fresh and Harry the owner is always on top of things. They do however get crowded and do not take reservations but you can do call ahead seating to have a place in line before you arrive. Thursdays are New Orleans nights and there is a weekend brunch menu. Also every weekend their chef creates many different specials that are well worth trying.

The best seafood in town? Thank you! It's always good to see you, and it was a treat to read your kind words. Hope to have you back for brunch again soon!

Take care,
Harry

“Gulf Shores is worth the trip.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Great "local" restaurant. We can walk to it. Thank goodness, I need to walk home after the amazing Mojitos! Big and yummy! I am not a huge seafood fan, but I love the salad with coconut shrimp. My husband has tried many of the different seafood dishes and liked them all. When the weather is nice, the outdoor seating is fun, but the service really falls. The owner is a very kind and friendly man. He has been wanting to expand, but Creve Coeur won't let him. I wish they would, then the kitchen could be made bigger to serve both the outdoor and indoor customers more efficiently.

“Grits in St. Louis?? YUM!!!!!”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

I was first impressed by the many good reviews that Gulf Shores received. I was told it was a very good place, but wasn't sure as the menu didn't win me over at first... I really wanted to get the lobster roll, but decided to get the shrimp and grits lunch special. All i can say is O-M-G. It was amazing- and i don't say that about too many meals that i eat. It was extremely tasty, with some salami and tomatos and shrimp of course. I even took the leftovers home to Philadelphia and my husband raved about it also. It was a very fun and cute atmosphere- a little loud for my liking, as they had live music, but the food was great and the service was good also. Our waitress was friendly and I would definitely go back!

“Fantastic fun and food”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Came here for a business meal and I'll be back for some leisure fun. Fantastic little place with great food, friendly staff, reasonable prices. And I hit it on Tuesday night when they were doing Mo-town entertainment. Wooo! That guy can sing and play guitar. I can't wait to come back to St. Louis for another visit to Gulf Shores. Don't miss this place.

“Awesome food and service”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

This amazing establishment is located in a strip mall and one would never imagine that the meal would rival eating in New Orleans but let me tell you it does!!!! The seafood was AMAZING!!!! Don't let the looks deceive you.... Go, go, go, when in St Louis
