Once seated we were once again stuck waiting for our server who was fairly new and was... More

We'd been in Gulf Shores a month before coming here but once we came we were hooked. The service is great! Fast and friendly, prices excellent and the food is delicious! We've been for lunch, dinner, and late evening. My favorite is the pineapple grilled shrimp. And Kay Kay is a great waitress!

Want a fairly good meal at a fairly reasonable price? This place is ok. The "Ya Ya" dinner was good. Very tasty, lots of seafood. Similarly, "the shrimp skewer" was good. The server, Megan, was very help. This is a no frills, nondescript place to get a meal. Go here for nothing special but real ok. Good, convenient location.

We had lunch at Gulf Island the other day. Great tasting Grouper. The lunch special comes with ice tea and two sides. The total cost for both meals was under $18.

Tyler was our server. He was professional and fulfilled our requests. Had a great meal and awesome dinner with each other. I... More

A must go to in Gulf Shores! Within walking distance of Best Western on the Beach along with the surrounding hotels/condos. Lunch specials between 10:30 and 2:00 are great as well! $7.99 specials come with a sweet tea (which I absolutely fell in love with.) The gumbo and crab bisque are absolutely delicious.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, AL area. They have very reasonably priced lunch & dinner specials. Their drink prices are pretty hefty-$5. for a draft beer that wasn't even a pint. But the food made up for the price of the drinks and I just won't have a beer next time. The food... More
