Very few sit down restaurants in the area that provide food service after 10. This one purports to do so however when we arrived at 11 we found service completely lacking. We were promptly seated. We had to ask for someone to take our drink order. We had to ask the status of our drinks. They only brought our coke... More

This was our last night in Gulf Shores. Part of our group had eaten lunch here several days earlier and said it was delicious and very reasonable. I had a seafood dish that was wonderful and the drinks were good also.

Just like trying new places out. It was a little pricey for my taste, we got the baby back ribs with jerk bbq. It was very good, had a side of hush puppies and they were hard as a rock. When we had gone it was not busy, there probably was 2 other tables there and our Waiter was no... More

Some like it hot. But I like it two days simmered so all the flavor blends into the most mouth-watering dish you've ever tasted. My mother's stew on the second or third day was like that. I've had Jambalya like that in other places. Last weekend I got the best dinner of our whole trip at the Gulf Island Grille... More

We'd been in Gulf Shores a month before coming here but once we came we were hooked. The service is great! Fast and friendly, prices excellent and the food is delicious! We've been for lunch, dinner, and late evening. My favorite is the pineapple grilled shrimp. And Kay Kay is a great waitress!

Want a fairly good meal at a fairly reasonable price? This place is ok. The "Ya Ya" dinner was good. Very tasty, lots of seafood. Similarly, "the shrimp skewer" was good. The server, Megan, was very help. This is a no frills, nondescript place to get a meal. Go here for nothing special but real ok. Good, convenient location.

We had lunch at Gulf Island the other day. Great tasting Grouper. The lunch special comes with ice tea and two sides. The total cost for both meals was under $18.
