    Best place ever! The wait can sometimes be long but there's tons to do while you wait! They're super friendly and you're allowed to dance on the tables! Which is a plus for me! This place is a must!!!

    It's the 2nd week of August and the place was dead at lunchtime. Not much happening. Ice cream/sno-cone truck doesn't open until 4p. Skip the handmade Rita. Nice server. The zoo animals were fun.

    We've been going here MULTIPLE times a year since they opened. Since they started that STUPID Hangout Fest though, it's gone downhill. They have turned my beloved zen beach into Panama City Beach.

    This place not only had great food but was so much fun! We ate here for lunch and played TV trivia with the DJ and the kids had a foam party and giant beach ball! Excellent and highly recommended!

    Downtown Gulf Shores where kids and adults can both enjoy. Great food, live music, kids play area, and within steps from the beach

    Initially told we would have a two hour wait. We got to our table in 45 minutes. It took almost thirty minutes to place our order and an hour to get our meal. Gluten free knowledge not as advertised!

    Awesome place, it's always busy and crowded so expect to wait. Service at the bar wasn't great. I felt like the bartender was annoyed we ordered from the menu.
    Aaron Grebner · July 21, 2015
  • Alexis S.
    Not the best food and way over priced. Your paying for the amenities when you get your food. Really cool place but how about a charge at the door to easy the price of food instead
    Alexis Seibert · June 7, 2012
  • Todd A.
    Unbelievably expensive, but on the plus side they give you huge portions. Absolutely a tourist trap, but not as bad as some and your kids will have a lot of fun.

    Came here on Memorial Day. Service sucked. Tons of people behind the bar but no one acknowledged us for 10 min. Piss poor attitude. Our order came out wrong twice, got out money back and left.

    We love The Hangout and the beach at that Hangout! Try their famous Shaka Shrimp wrap!!! Excellent! They also serve the world's best fries!!!

  • Tonie B.
    Prices here are high compared to better restaurants in the area. Bacon egg cheeseburger was good. Glad did not have to wait in line to see a band etc
    Tonie Boaman · August 10, 2012
  • Kelli A.
    Everyone complaining about the price must never eat out. Maybe a dollar or two more than Chili's or whatever, but definitely worth it. Quick wait, great food, family fun!
    Kelli A. · June 16, 2014
  • Flavia W.
    Food was ok, didn't really dig the tortilla chips that came with the food. Got a table right by the window with an awesome view of the beach though.

    Ask for Kayla! She's awesome! She's the one with tattoos on her arm and she's very peppy! #awesomewaitress

  • David A.
    $5 to park, 2-1/2 hr wait, $15 for a cheeseburger and terrible cover bands serenade you with shitty renditions of your favorite songs...sounds like a great time
    David Ackerman · March 16, 2012
  • Jeff J.
    Food is Okay. Atmosphere is great. Live band, dance on the tables, throw napkins. Something for whole family.

    Food is good, but very pricey. $25 a head for sandwiches without apps or drinks.. Fun atmosphere. Great for kids.

    Had the swordfish grilled. It was so good, the first time I ever had swordfish and will order it again.

    The worst bar service of any place I have ever been and I have been around. It was harder to pay my tab than anything ever. Will never return.
    Brian Kincaid · March 18, 2011

    Friend and I ate here in May 2014, and the (overpriced) bacon egg cheeseburger gave us violent food poisoning.

    This place is giant but a lot of fun. Avoid their margarita, you can't really go wrong with the food.
    Katherine Meyer · July 31, 2013

    The burger is pretty good. Atmosphere is the best quality. Closes too early.

    Week nights (M-Th) after 10pm are very chill. The music may or may not suck.
    Emily Riggin · May 8, 2013
  • Greg M.
    Avoid it, it's a tourist trap. If you ant to overpay go for it, otherwise steer clear. also music's not that great
    Greg Merchant · March 13, 2011
  • Mitchell W.
    This guy that works in the kitchen walked out of a stall and into the kitchen with out washing his hands and the management seems to just brush it off..
    Mitchell Wheatley · May 29, 2013
  • Carol K.
    A great place to come for people with kids. All ages can find something to do and after a long day in the sun it is nice and easy.
    Carol Kelley · April 10, 2011
  • Stacy R.
    Come during the mid afternoon and beat the crowd. They are faster and friendlier.
    Stacy Rodgers · June 20, 2012

    Don't get the stuffed mushrooms...there only give you 5......... That's not an appetizer, that's just a tease..

    Horrible service! Over-priced food. Go to Orange beach for some nice people. Oh, and their beer is rusty
    Kevin Bennett · August 12, 2011
  • Steve D.
    A place to be seen / said you went to, nice staff, but the food is very sub-par.
