Nice atmosphere. My wife had the 1 lb Basket of pick and peel shrimp. They were cooked to long and peeled terrible and felt like leather. I had the oysters on the half shell. Very good. Wait staff was very pleasant and helpful. The beer was ice cold. Would would go back again.

We went here with our teenage kids and had a blast. So much to do and excellent seafood. This is quite an attraction and entertainment. We took a lot of photos here and looking back was one of our highlights to eat and experience the Gulf Shores. Check it out if you are in the area.

The Hangout is a must do! The ocean views are spectacular. The restaurant is basically outdoor. Be prepared that if you were looking for air conditioning this is not the place. However, the food is decent and a little pricey for what you get. Family friendly with activities for the kids. Be sure to add your wish to the wishing... More

Know that this is a very loud place. Do not expect a quiet meal here. The food was ok but not as good as other places.

We had been to the Hangout before and had a great time. Is was different, and not in a good way. All though the place is really cool, it was lacking for New Years. We had heard about all the things that were going on that night and that it was the place to be, NOT! The wait staff do... More
