What a fun place. Renovating now, but still amazing. Very friendly staff, good menu and plenty to look at...800+ pez dispensors on the wall, rubber ducks on the ceiling and much more. Lots of renovation going on, but certainly worth a visit .

Great food, great customer service and just a little bit warmer we could have listed to the waves crashing against the sand. No, seriously..this place would be great on a date or with the entire family. FUN

If you’re a visitor, people recommend the hang out. Commercialized & over priced. Paying for view, go next door to pink pony. Better wings & drinks. Sad that this cornered the space. Needs something related to the real beach!

Fun place for couples and friends. Live music on weekends and usually have really good bands. A must go to when in Gulf Shores.
