I have to begin with saying that it was New Year's Eve and our waitress, Christy, was very busy, but still did a superb job. She was customer focused, very pleasant, and service was excellent. There was a special menu for New Year's and I and another diner in our party picked the prime rib. We both agreed it was... More

Had the whole family for dinner here. Chicken Parmesan, prime rib, tuna, and tenderloin filets were all ordered and we heartily enjoyed them all. Our waitress was excellent and we retired to the pub to enjoy their live in-house band. A great evening.

We went to Nolans on a Saturday evening and had the Oysters Bienville, crab cake, and salads. At $14 we took a risk on the crab cake. It was delicious, thick and meaty. The baked oysters were also very good. Everything was good. There was live music and it was fun to watch dancing. The interior leaves much to be... More

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

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
