If you are going to have dinner at this restaurant it is best to put you name in early. The food is worth the Wait. We Had dinner around 7:00 on a Wednesday and there was a 20 minute wait. We decided to eat at the Bar. Wine bottles are 1/2 price on Wednesday. My Husband had the deep fried Scallops, which came with 2 sides and was a very generous serving. I had the breaded deep fried Oysters which were awesome, I always have the Red beans and rice which have a nice kick to it. Their corn bread that comes with the entrees is always fresh and tasty. Love this restaurant for fresh seafood and fish

Happy to hear that our food is worth the wait! We certainly always try to get everyone seated and enjoying their meal as quickly as possible, but we can get quite busy. That said, it sounds like you order well -- the scallops are a big favorite around here, and of course, you can't go wrong with oysters, red beans, and rice. We're always happy to have you, and we sure hope you'll come back and see us to try more of our menu soon.

All the best,
Harry

Dropped in for a mid-week supper and they had a 30 minute wait for a table so we decided to eat at the bar. This place always seems to be hopping; live music in the background. We had the fried oysters and scallops and they were both delicious! Great seafood, atmosphere and service.

Cheers!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the entire metro St Louis area. Southern cooking with a flair, and they never disappoint. Great service, relaxed, friendly and efficient servers. Great seafood dishes are their forte. but as I say, you will never be sorry for anything your order.

With so many chain restaurants around, it is wonderful to have a restaurant that offers authentic, made to order meals.

We had a party of 10. And for a place that does not offer reservations on weekends, they got us in and out very efficiently. And, everyone loved their meal.

I had the seafood tacos ( I chose cod and gator) and the portions were very generous and delicious.

This may be a good complaint for Gulf Shores: But the place is too small. I think they've done so well that they have outgrown their space. The need to expand a bit to let even more fans in.
