Not fancy. Don't expect cloth napkins or tablecloths. But be ready for excellent seafood. I love the Royal Reds platter served with corn cob, potatoes, coleslaw and the excellent smoked sausage. Butter at every table to slather! Try a Bushwacker tool I had great service, even lemon water to rinse my fingers after peeling the shrimp.

This was out first and last visit. There were no positive comments that my wife and I can offer. Between the two of us we ordered a dozen parmesan baked oysters, 2 clusters of snow crab legs and 2 crab cakes. Sides that came with our meals included boiled red potatoes, cold slaw and boiled corn on the cob. Oysters... More

This was our favorite place that we ate at Gulf Shores while we were there for a week. We love seafood and it was great to find a good restaurant that had choices other than fried. We loved the parmesan garlic backed oysters. We sat outside, we were nearly the only ones there and we had to go in and... More

We TRIED to eat here. Were told to sit anywhere we wanted. Sat down at a table and waited twenty minutes. No one even came out with menus or water. We were clearly forgotten and unnoticed. Gave up and left.

The lunch specials are very reasonable and a good variety! My tuna steak was perfectly prepared and the gumbo was very good. My husband's catfish was a little mushy and didn't have much flavor, even though it was prepared blackened. While mine was great, he was disappointed. The service is friendly and welcoming and very prompt.

My husband and I ate here in early October. Very short wait, and the service was great. It has now become our favorite restaurant in the Gulf Shores/Perdido Key area because of the fresh food and healthy choices. Can't wait to go back!

The food and customer service was great! The shrimps and crab legs were seasoned just right. So many shrimps that I couldn't eat them all. Worth the visit. Ask for Jade, great personality!

With friends, we stopped at Seamers for dinner. I had the crab cakes, they were average in taste but came at a costly price. The interior was nothing to write home about. But, the service was GREAT.

Thank Bill K
