This is our favorite place for snow crab legs. Nothing here is fried - everything is either boiled, broiled, or steamed. The location is great too with a marina right outside.

Our experience was very nice. The staff was great. Cristina(sp) the server was awesome. Portions were generous. Food could have been a little more seasoned. Key lime pie good not great. Chocolate silk pie nice. Go into the restrooms the walls are a work of art.

This used to be my favorite place to eat in Gulf Shores. I haven't been in a few years and was surprised to find the quality has really slipped. I ordered the steamed royal reds and one crab leg cluster. The shrimp was over cooked, tough, and watery. The crab cluster had almost no meat. The dipping butter didn't taste... More

Best steamed seafood in town. They offer ZERO fried food. Get the platter and split it with the family. You won't be disappointed. We have been more times than we can count and the servers are always friendly. Food is consistantly top notch.

It's a little confusing when you walk in. few tables and not the best decor. There is a bar and more tables in the back. The menu choices are good and the appetizer came quickly. I had trouble with peeling the shrimp. I mentioned this to our waitress and my plate was whisked away and very quickly replaced with twice... More

The steamed, instead of fried, seafood was excellent to find on beach blvd. The service was excellent. However, we ordered the mini corndogs for my little girl and they were still cold inside from the microwave. They did take them off of our ticket, and then gave us free key lime pie. Besides the kid's meal, the meal was great.

Every year my son & I take a trip down to Gulf Shores. One of the highlights of the trip is the food at GSS. The Royal Reds and Snow Crab are ridiculously good! Don't miss Gulf Shores Steamer!

There are many restaurants in the area that provide fried seafood. Finally, a place that steams them. We had the combo of red shrimp and crab legs with a cup of gumbo. The red shrimp were plentiful and very good. The crab legs were good but medium to small in size. The gumbo was good. The service was very good.
