My wife and I had a margarita. The worst margarita ever. The catch of the day was NOT better either. The calamari was not that bad. The spinach dip was Not that bad, but the chip tasted like 100 yrs old. We came all the way from Memphis, TN. Would not recommend this place to anybody, unless you want to... More

Dining with family and friends and had the Surf and Turf dinner special. It was excellent! The marinated steak was delicious as well as the home made broccoli salad. Gumbo is a must have. Will definitely be back!

We needed a family friendly place with a variety of food that was open at 7 pm and not a 30 minute drive. The food was very good and the service was very friendly. They were out of a few things but I think because they were one of few places open that night they were very busy.

We chose this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. Great food at a good price. Will definitely visit again if we come back.

The food was ok - calamari was good, surf and turf (shrimp was ok and steak was tough and over salty/spiced). The waitress had all vegetables mixed up on all 4 plates and the temp of each steak was wrong for 3 of the four plates. She totally forgot a salad - we had to ask for it twice. She... More

We have been to Dauphin Island many times but never ventured in after reading some prior reviews. I am so glad we stopped in to try it anyways. We were greeted by Josh, the service was excellent and friendly. The food was really good. Fried calamari, a reuben, a patty melt, fish sandwich and some chicken tenders. All were great.... More

We had couple of blackened flounder fish sandwiches. Very good. Not too many places to just eat lunch at on Dauphin Island. This one came recommended by some locals and was a nice find. Friendly staff, good food and bread pudding for dessert!

We went here for a small Birthday gathering while staying on the Island. Jordan was our server and he did a super job. Food was great but the Margarita was even better. I had Crawfish and Artichoke Pasta and I had enough to take home for lunch the next day. Two people in our group had the Sampler Seafood Platter... More

Visited on vacation. Had the fried crab claws which were terrific! Service was quick and friendly. It's off season so nice to have a quiet place with good food. I would return. Bar service was good. Had a strawberry martini extremely potent!!

Thank Alou722
