We went to Nolan's again this year and the food was good, but not great. My husband and I both got prime rib and it was very tough. The service was decent. It has been much better overall in the past.

Great atmosphere and great steaks! We have always had amazing service and great food at Nolan's. Great place for date-night or special occasions. More upscale than most other local places.

Nolan's is up scale dining, very classy. From Greek style snapper to prime rib this restaurant will tempt you with a wide array of selections. Always wonderful. Special service from the wait staff too.

The service was great! From there, not much to brag about. The food is only okay, definitely overpriced and not that fresh!

Most likely the best steak and seafood restuarnat in Gulf Shores. Excellent filets, salads and seafood. Then a great band and lounge area to cap the night off in.

Although the restaurant is more upscale than most in the area, causal dress is what most patrons wear. After all, most were on vacation, so we saw jeans, shorts and capris.

Yes they do. I would call them, however, when you get in town to see who is playing on which nights. I think things start around 7:30PM Best
