We met friends here for dinner. They were quite busy but service was good. We ordered drinks and looked over the menu. Our table all had different foods. Steak, mahi mahi, flounder, oysters, and shrimp. All was very good. Service was good. Everyone was very friendly. We would eat here again. Enjoyed the peach cobbler for dessert.

The staff is (overly) friendly and the food is generally good. Burgers are OK, flounder is wonderful, gumbo is nice, shrimp salad is very good. However, found a large dead roach in the bathroom that looked like it had been there a while. Hope the kitchen is cleaner. Won’t be back.

First Cindy waited on me. She is the best.

Had the fried trigger fish. They know how to fry it. Just a quick fry not cooked too much. Best coleslaw around.

We went with another couple. The service was great! Bob and his wife got the fried flounder, I got the broiled Triggerfish special (much better than fried, Irene let us taste both. My wife got the shrimp appetizer for her main course. We also got an order of the "peeled and eat em" shrimp appetizer for the table, but I ate most of them. They were great and the sauce they provided was much better than cocktail or tarter sauce. The next time we're in Fairhope,we'll be back.

The best meal here is the whole fried flounder. Very lightly dusted with cracker meal and deep fried....awesomeness! Very easy to eat as the moist cooked meat slide right off of the bones. Side salad was mediocre, but the green beens were nicely seasoned and not overcooked. Seafood gumbo is sub par and mainly okra.
