We started with a bottle of Chardonnay, which helped considerably. It was average, not real good, but OK and cost $22- a bit high in my opinion. The food was quite good (as is just about all Gulf Shores food) but expensive. We did not take advantage of the floor show which would probably added a lot to the evening.... More

Food was great, also enjoyed the live band. It was also pleasant to see the band members interacting with the crowd, Everyone appeared to having a blast.

Service was great and so was the food but expect to pay for the quality of the service and food. There was a live band in the back of the restaurant if you were looking for some entertainment too.

We went to this restaurant trying to find a little higher end place for a birthday. This did not disappoint. Not so high end you can't wear shorts and polo but nice enough to enjoy a fine dining experience. The waiter was phenomenal and the food was excellent. Priced higher than other local restaurants but worth the money. Cajun steak... More

The broiled flounder still as good as last time with seasoning. Tried the seafood gumbo however that was way too salty if have high blood pressure don't get it. Neither of us could eat the gumbo due to too much salt. We mainly come for the live band and dancing. If you want a seat in the bar for the... More

Food was excellent! 10 ladies went for a birthday party for 2 of the ladies. Appetizers of the stuffed mushrooms and bacon wrapped shrimp were delicious. Everyone ordered a variety of dishes from shrimp, grouper, veal and steaks. Not a single complaint. Desserts were equally as pleasing. Service very good too. Nice lounge with nightly band. We will definitely be... More

We love Greek cuisine & choice cut steaks. Pleasantly surprised here at the beach!! We both had the Greek tenderloin with garlic mashed potatoes & a true Greek salad. They do have anchovies if you ask for them. Our waiter, John, was great & was so gracious to change my wine to another one once he saw it wasn't my... More

The first time we came here, we were disappointed in the food but always try again. Sadly, we were once again let down. The food was merely mediocre and much of the sea food tasted like it came right from the microwave and was heated up. Although the service was good, the food was way overpriced for what it was...

The service has always been great. I love the white tablecloths and just "pretty" ambiance of the restaurant. The best soft shell crabs I have ever eaten, and I have tried them up and own the East Coast. Love this restaurant.

Thank Vilda B
