We ate a quick lunch at Sunset Grill. The food was tasty and our view was lovely. We are looking forward to going back at sunset in the near future. The waitress was very nice and attentive. I would recommend eating here for lunch or dinner.

JT's Sunset Grill is a great place to enjoy a fresh seafood po'boy, basket, or salad. My husband and I ate there multiple times over last weekend and we enjoyed everything we tried. The fried crab claws were large, meaty, and fresh. My shrimp po'boy was overflowing with fresh Gulf caught shrimp. The grouper po'boy was so good that I... More

A little strange but it works out well. It doesn't serve alcohol but the bar upstairs, the Pelican Pub does. One orders for take-out then does upstairs. When your food is ready it is brought upstairs to you. The restaurant has outdoor seating to watch the sunset if one is not interested in alcohol with dinner. The food is very... More

I paid $17.25, after tip, for a over salted piece of "white fish", over salted fries, a tiny side salad and a root beer. That was the most expensive worst meal I've ever had.

Loved the delicious crawfish cake sandwich. Friendly and prompt service. Family friendly menu. Outside seating for enjoying the sunshine. Highly recommended for good food at reasonable price.

We went for dinner one night on the island during spring break. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the bay. The appetizer crawfish cakes were great. I had grouper which was good. Pleasant server.

Our second night on the island and haven't had any food to write home about. We'd been told not to try JT's, and we'd also been told that it was the best food on the island. So we go. We'd missed the sunset by a few minutes. Okay, JT'S is an established business on Dauphin Island. So you don't expect... More

We stopped by here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. You can eat outside or inside. They have 2 well-stocked fish tanks inside. The service was great and the food was awesome! We had crab cakes, blackened chicken, and po boys. We loved all of it! It was delicious. The only complaint I had was the inside smelled a little... More
