Shipp's Harbour offers a marina setting view, casual attire, yet the presentation is elegant. The food we had was very good and the service was friendly, efficient and warm. The servings of the entrees were generous so we knew that splitting an order for us would be in our best interest. My husband added a house salad to his order... More

Our waiter was Mark. He gave so many good suggestions and was very attentive. I ordered the island mahi mahi topped with crabmeat. It was cooked to perfection. As were the Gouda mashed potatoes and green beans. The meal was preceded by a house salad on a very cold plate. My boyfriend had the filet which he said was cooked... More

Stopped in for brunch and enjoyed several hours of delicious food. We ordered the bios your own Bloody Mary which was fun experience. The 3 course brunch was amazing, the tuna dip, and fried shrimp were spectacular. The coconut cake was so good, I even took the leftovers home which I rarely do!! Worth the stop, pretty harbor view with... More

This restaurant is one of the best in the area. We enjoyed their two special evenings, grouper ponchartrain night and steak nights. Both were excellent discounted deals! The food was high quality, well prepared, and served with beautiful presentation by friendly, cheerful servers. The pina colada cake is divine! Do not miss this place when you are in Orange Beach....

Lots of menu choices but look for that little menu choice in the corner of Island Eggplant $13. First bite took my breath away, beautiful presentation as well, I even complemented the chef on this one. Crisp eggplant, minimum marinara (not globbed on) provolone and jumbo lump crab exactly enough and the bearnaise sauce to die for. The only bad... More

They have the best seafood on the island and the filets are wonderful! The Grouper Ponchatrain is excellent as is Bens Blackened Tuna and the service is great. Call ahead since they book up early and enjoy.

We ate here at 7:00 PM and it was not crowded but busy. The atmosphere here is very nice, like an old but very nice southern seafood place. It is right on the water with lower level seating close to the water and nice inside seating, and a bar with TV's. We were seated quickly and our drink orders were... More

Best brunch in orange beach. Maybe the best anywhere. It's a must try. You can custom make your bloody Mary's if that's your preference. Won't leave hungry.

Great location on the water. You definitely need reservations even in the winter. Excellent food. Service can be spotty. Ate here New Year's Eve. Took forever to get our bar drinks. 3 of us were served our appetizers but the 4th had to wait about 5 minutes for his gumbo. All courses were excellent. Definitely worth trying when in Orange...

I have eaten here twice. The first time was during a storm in February 2016 and the second time was in September 2016. The first was at dinner and I had Grouper Ponchatrain, it was wonderful! The second time was lunch and I had the Royal Reds and I was a little disappointed. I wish I had stuck with the... More

Shipp's Harbour Grill stands alone in a class of it's own serving Fresh Local Seafood and Certified Angus Beef.
Shipp's offers beautiful outside seating on our upper deck with a birds-eye view of the harbor, a tiki bar, a covered outdoor porch, and an elegant but casual shabby chic beachside decor inside in our many dining areas.
Shipp's is comfortable and casual with classy food.
