Although Ribs and Reds was once in Gulf Shores, alas the restaurant is there no mores. Sad to say it has gone away.

This place is no longer in business! that is to say that it is replaced by a new restaurant. Not sure how many more details that I have to add, other than to tell you that they are closed and replaced by a new restaurant!!!

The hostess and waitress were very friendly. I have a service dog and they offered to bring him some water while we ate. This was the only restaurant that offered to do that on our vacation. Unfortunately, that is where the positive experience ended. We...More

Three of four dinners bad- 2 over cooked, 1 heavily breaded & greasy, a burned roll, old perhaps frozen lettuce in salad, rude waitress about food complaints and tossed check on table while we were still eating entree, no offer of drink refill or desserts.

We stopped here after church on Sunday. Wish we hadn't. The service was not good. But the food was worse. Did not seem to be made in house. The coconut cake was the worst.
