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

    Extremely overpriced!! Don't buy the chips and salsa - $9 for the same thing you can buy at Walmart right down the road!

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

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

    awesome atmosphere and bartenders but we waited over 1.5 hours for a table and 1.5 hours for appetizers.

    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.

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

    So much for southern hospitality. Awful service and rude employees.

    Bad service, extremely overpriced, very touristy. A plain chicken wrap should not cost $13

    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..

    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.

    Week nights (M-Th) after 10pm are very chill. The music may or may not suck.
