Went to Orange beach for a long weekend to visit family that vacations there in the winter. Did a search on "fine dining" in the area and Nolans seemed to have the best reviews. This place did not disappoint us at all. Two of has had filets, one had a chicken pasta dish and one had the crab au gratin.... More

This restaurant has good ambience, good food, good music and good service. Too bad they don't have more vegetarian entrees because the chef has talent and the vegetarian sides that I put together to make a meal were very flavorful. Good drinks, too!

Three of us went to Nolans and from start to finish, everything was as you'd expect at a fine restaurant. We started with drinks that were very reasonably priced. Two of us had the fried grouper which was quite tasty. However, we both thought the breading was on the heavy side. The third person had the small filet which she... More

Nicely laid out venue, well appointed art work and architectural details. The food was great, my wife had prime rib that melted in her mouth. I had the crab casserole, which tasted great, but to my mind was more of a cocktail type dip than an entree, still it tasted great. We topped the evening off with a little dancing... More

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
