I remember this restaurant being a special treat every time we went to Gulf Shores. We stopped to get smoked turkey sandwiches and dressing. The cornbread dressing was good, although I was the only one in our family (of six) who enjoyed it. The turkey was not smoked. Just plain turkey slices you could get at a good grocery store....

Bates House of Turkey is a place where you can walk in any day of the year and order turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, and other fixings that you usually only get around Thanksgiving. Then of course there are the pies - all kinds but naturally pumpkin is the most popular. The best part is that it's delicious. It's also a... More

We were traveling and just happened to see the sign for Bates House to Turkey. We stopped and were not disappointed at all. We just grabbed a couple sandwiches to go. The best we have had in a long time. So on our way home we stopped and had some sliced to take home. Very clean and staff is super... More

Back from Gulfport to Atlanta, we thought we were too early but googled and saw that they open at 8am! It was abut 10:30am so we stopped and got turkey sandwiches for the ride and turkey tetrazzini for later at home---really recommended that you stop here, gas, other breakfast places if you need a biscuit or coffee---great place and we...

Have stopped for lunch on our way to and from the beach for years. We always order turkey and dressing and it has always been good. But at our recent stop, the turkey and dressing was not the usual quality. Turkey tasted leftover and dressing was very bland. We did not finish our meal; however, we did get a turkey... More

They make the one of the best turkey sandwiches I have ever had. You might need more than one to fill up.

If you want turkey or dressing this is the place! I have gotten turkey and gravy for Thanksgiving (order ahead) several times from BATES. I also love to get turkey to take to the beach for sandwiches for quick lunches.

I ordered the Gobbler Sandwich and I was very disappointed! First off they charged me for two sandwiches when I had only ordered one. The turkey was terribly dry, the cornbread dressing was bland and I could not taste the cranberry sauce because there was so little of it. I should have looked at the empty parking lot before I...

We buy a couple #s every trip for sandwiches. Best smoked turkey breast sandwich meat hands down. The turkey and dressing is very good too.
