Lots of seafood variety on their menus. Everyone got something different, but all dishes were very good. Prompt service.

We took our family of 5 here for lunch while in vacation in Gulf Shores. We sat outside on a beautiful day under the covered tables in the shade. We ordered shrimp & fish tacos & a seafood platter. Everything was delicious. Prices were reasonable for the meal & service we received. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

When you have a picky 5 year that wants mini corn dogs you find them! I decided on the mahi mahi sandwich and my gf got a hamburger. Most restaurant give you a little piece of meat and a huge bun but this place doesn't do that at all! We both had a huge bun and my gf's burger was... More

Went back and so glad we did! Started with a dozen oysters on the half shell- they were fabulous! Then had a dozen of the chargrilled oysters with butter and Parmesan cheese- excellent! For dinner my 11 year old and I had a platter to split- steamed oysters, mussels, shrimp, royal reds, crab legs, sausage, red potatoes, corn on the... More

We thought we had nailed it! My husband LOVES char-grilled oysters...he waits all year to go to Alabama to get those delicious char-grilled fresh Gulf oysters. In previous years, we frequented The Steamer. They had a great price on the char-grilled oysters from January through the month of February. So, off we went for our anniversary dinner, and found that... More

$10 kids meals, way overpriced and mediocre food. Highly disappointing. Drinks weren't even good. Family of 5 cost over $100 just for lunch. We won't be back.

This is an interesting seafood restaurant as nothing is served fried. It still means plenty of tasty and interesting choices for your meal. We all ordered something different and shared our choices. We could have made this a lot simpler by ordering one of their family trays. Lus we would have had more choices including oysters and king crab legs.... More
