This place has a great ambiance. Loved being on the beach. The staff was friendly. Loved the gift shop and spent way too much $$$ there. Would definitely go again!

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores (but we'll be back). Our trip would not have been complete without a stop at The Hangout. We went for lunch. Drinks were good. My husband and I had salads, my son a burger. Honestly the food was just OK but that's not the main reason to go. The place is just... More

Good food and reasonable prices. The atmosphere was a lot of fun with the staff playing trivia and other games for small souvenir prizes. On the hour, there was foam to play in for the children and the young in heart in the courtyard. Live music on the weekends.

If you don't have a good time here, you're the only one to blame. Seriously, these folks bend over backwards to make the place lively and fun. It reminds me of a Disney beach movie with surfer decor and young people dancing everywhere. There is music galore, contest, games, and group dances. Although they serve alcohol, this place is very... More

We stopped here for a nightcap before heading to the condo. The band was horrible, especially for a busy Friday night. The drinks were way overpriced & not great at all. The only redeeming quality is the friendly staff.

I love this place. Great blues show at the stage last night. Kids had a ball in bubble maker. Didn't have food this time but it is always good. Nachos, fish tacos, and po-boys are my favorites.
