Got an early bird shrimp basket special (7.99) and ate it on the outside porch. Fast service and good food. Great view of the beach too. Will go back.

Well, that was disappointing. Ordered the pound of steamed "royal red" shrimp (with potato and vegetable and bread). [Also comes with cocktail sauce, tartar sauce and a large container of clarified butter.] I can't get past how horribly overcooked these shrimp were. I mean so much so that when one tried to peel these the shell was tearing the meat... More

Four satisfied customers. Just wanted a little, so we didn't order big meals. Two had appertisers, one bowl gumbo and one hamburger steak. Not fancy, but good. Lot of locals eating, staff friendly and prices medium. We would eat there again.

We ate inside at Bahama Bob's Friday night on a chilly night. The bar was stacked 2-3 people deep and because it is a small place, it was so loud we couldn't carry on a conversation with each other. We love to eat outside at Babama Bob's during warm weather and service is very good so we will go back... More

We have been told by friends this is a Great Seafood Restaurant and had to find out for ourselves. We were happy with the results. walking distance from our Townhouse on W Beach Blvd. Fast friendly service with reasonable prices.

Always consistent for a good lunch. Their specials are reasonable and tasty. On my last stop I had the pot roast. Not what you expect on the beach in Gulf Shores AL but very good. It includes drink and desert for less than $8.
