Excellent food! The shrimp stack was really good. I ordered a small wedge salad and it was still large enough to share. The chateaubriand was amazing! I also ordered the crabmeat w/ bernaise sauce to go on top. At $14, I was shocked to see...More

Their Key Lime Bread Pudding is hands down the best dessert I've ever had in Fairhope. I would never have thought to combine bread pudding and key lime but it was divine and definitely unique. I ordered 20 pieces for dessert on a sunset dinner...More

There is a reason why people suggest it first upon any visit to Fairhope. Delicious from the appetizer to the desert. Make a reservation because it’s busy. I don’t even like bread pudding but the key lime bread pudding is devine!

Would be so easy to drive right by since the Wash House is snuggled behind other down-home Southern businesses. We were with a group of 22 so we had the chance to see a number of different dishes. My husband and I both enjoyed the...More

Sorry for the delayed response. Shorts are FINE at The Wash House, thank you for question, however buttoned shirt with shorts is the norm especially when it's still, "warm even for down here." Enjoy!

I don't recall seeing gluten free options on the menu, however, I cannot be sure. It is probably best if you contact them directly.
