We had just arrived to the Gulf Shores and stopped for lunch on our way to our condo. We love oysters, and don't get them very often, living in Minnesota, so we came to the right place. We had a fried oyster basket with Fries served with sweet hushpuppies. We would definitely recommend this place.

Gulf Island Grill is one of those places that have been there so long you tend to overlook it. My family and I vist the beach often. We arrived late one night and decided to try the Grill because it was so close to us. BOY!! We never knew what we were missing. Everything we had was great. The tropical... More

We have been here two years in a row now, while on vacation, we absolutely love the atmosphere and food at this restaurant.

We have decided that this is our favorite spot on the Gulf Coast . The atmosphere is awesome, it's really beachy and the food is spectacular. It's a must for groups and Families because they always try to accommodate from what we can tell. Very friendly staff.

Stopped in for lunch and was expecting just burgers and fries, but what we got was so much more. I ordered the parmesan crusted grouper and it was great. My husband ordered the grouper with some kind of seafood spicy sauce, he lived it too. Quaint, laid back, good service!

Service was slow. Fried pickles were great! I ordered crab claws with french fries. The crab claws was just okay, not real good. Bad aftertaste. The French fries was straight up nasty. My son said the chicken fingers was pretty good. My husband was not satisfied with his hamburger. Will not be back.

Nice fun day. We had a party of 10 and we had a great time. We went in around 5 and was promptly taken to a table. We had teenagers with us and they had a very attentive waiter who was very good with them because they asked a lot of questions. The atmosphere was great to talk and still... More

Very few sit down restaurants in the area that provide food service after 10. This one purports to do so however when we arrived at 11 we found service completely lacking. We were promptly seated. We had to ask for someone to take our drink order. We had to ask the status of our drinks. They only brought our coke... More

This was our last night in Gulf Shores. Part of our group had eaten lunch here several days earlier and said it was delicious and very reasonable. I had a seafood dish that was wonderful and the drinks were good also.

Just like trying new places out. It was a little pricey for my taste, we got the baby back ribs with jerk bbq. It was very good, had a side of hush puppies and they were hard as a rock. When we had gone it was not busy, there probably was 2 other tables there and our Waiter was no... More
