We decided t try out this restaurant when we saw an ad on the local television advertising "swamp" soup. Actually it is a very good tasting bean soup!! We both had the burgers, they came quickly and were very messy and sooooo good. The wait staff is
always stopping by to check on you and the meal comes with a small piece of cake!! So far we have had chocolate and lemon. Very tasty. Great place to eat!!

Stopped in here for dinner based on reviews. The establishment is behind Arby's on the end of a strip mall, so it's a little hard to find. Can't be seen from road easily.
Reviews stated that all the food is fried, but we ordered the fresh white fish and were offered it grilled, fried or blackened. Wife had it grilled, lite on the seasoning and the fish was perfect! I had the chicken fingers basket and the chicken was actual strips of breast meat, no processed chicken. Very Good!
Drinks were served in pint mugs, were of decent alcohol mix and a fairly good value.
Dessert was a fried apple "donut" fairly greasy, was hot in temp all the way thru, but would not order it again!

Great place for dinner, service was exceptional, and felt that the meal was a good value overall

Our excellent meal of grilled fish, shrimp po-boy and the best hush puppies ever was topped off by the "only" dessert - beignet stuffed with apples and peaches. You could get lost in all that sugar!

Excellent, friendly service on a very busy night. This is a must do in Gul Shores/Orange Beach.

This was our first visit to the Fish River Grill #3. Please be aware that most of the menu is fried seafood, as I was looking for a grilled option on the day we visited. I would have liked to have seen more choices on their menu. I ordered the fried gator po boy, which was pretty good. They had several drink specials on the Saturday that we visited in the $4.99 price range. I must say that the complimentary swamp soup was the best part of the meal. My family and I felt that the Fish River Grill was just an average Gulf Shores restaurant.

We all had different items from the menu. One had fog legs, another fish platter. We had the Red Neck Reuben sandwich. Our server was great and the food was good.
