We went to Gulf Shores last night to celebrate a family member's birthday. I was excited because I had looked at the menu online and saw at least 10 different entrees that sounded tempting! We made a reservation because our party was 6 adults and a baby - that's when the less-than-stellar service started to show. The people taking the... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience, Becky. Let me start by saying that the service you described is miles away from what we seek to offer our guests. I apologize if we came off as rude or short over the phone, too -- I can assure you that's the last thing we want.... More

Shrimp and grits are good, not the best I've ever had, but I'd order them again. Poorboy my friend had was great too. I recommend getting there before 11:30am or wait till after 1pm, it gets really busy at lunch.

My wife and I stopped in at 4:00 on Valentines Day. Although there was no wait, most tables we'd already taken. We decided to sit at the bar and have a cocktail before ordering dinner. After looking at the menu, we ordered the hand cut calamari to nibble on while having our drinks. The calamari was cooked perfectly with a... More

The food was okay. Well seasoned, dirty rice is very spicy and nice atmosphere was good. Expect a wait. Would recommend a larger location. But I think the food was over priced.

First visit to GS ever. Met old friends after 28 years no see. Already warned about long wait on Saturday but that was just fine with me. It was an opportunity to socialize and re-connect. The location is very easy to find. Just look for the parking lot full of cars of customers anxious for tasty food and beverages! The... More

Everything tasted great. I just have one complaint, but the server was accommodating. I ordered the lobster roll entre and halfway through the time I spent wait the server tells me they ran out of lobster, so I ordered something else. While I waited for my new order the server brought me a cup of clam chowder. It was amazing!!!... More

Went early on new year's eve night, party of two, was seated at table that was not big enough to accommodate a meal for two ... crab legs, shrimp, four sides, appetizers, etc. Had to have another table moved alongside. But considering it was new year's eve and the place was busy, this is understandable though place is somewhat cramped.... More

Went here for lunch recently with my wife and daughter on a Thursday afternoon. After a short wait (they are always busy it seems) we were seated at a comfortable booth. Background music was provided by a live guitar player, quite pleasant. Beer selection was not good, apparently the recent holiday had cleaned them out. The food was quite good,... More

Happy to hear that our food is worth the wait! We certainly always try to get everyone seated and enjoying their meal as quickly as possible, but we can get quite busy. That said, it sounds like you order well -- the scallops are a big favorite around here, and of course, you can't go wrong with oysters, red beans,... More
