    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!

    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!!!

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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Food is Okay. Atmosphere is great. Live band, dance on the tables, throw napkins. Something for whole family.
  • GeauxDC F.
    Come here for the ambiance and that alone. If you're here for the food you're either drunk or high. Consistently the absolute worst food in Gulf Shores.

    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.

    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
