“Great atmosphere and food”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

This was the highlight of our Orange Beach trip. We stayed at the Perdido Beach Resort and walked across the street to see the restaurants and stores at the marina. We went into Gulf Coast Steamers and sat at the bar. The service was great and the everyone there was having a good time. There were several families with kids digging into large platters of steamed items. We had great oysters and then the bartender suggested shrimp called Reds.... they are incredible. We went back 2 nights later to have them again. This is just one of the best restaraunts we have been to and the staff was great!

“Delicious fresh food”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Very fresh food. Nothing fried. Tried the seafood gumbo, shrimp corn chowder, crab cakes, steamed crab legs, and red shrimp. Everything was very good. A few of the red shrimp seemed soft, but that's part of the variety of the local red shrimp. Crab legs were done perfectly. The gumbo, chowder, and crab cakes were all made just right. Service was fantastic. In an area where most of the food is fried, it was refreshing to have a meal that brought out the best of the flavors without anything fried.

“Good Crab Legs!”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

After a few disappointing dining experiences in Orange Beach this was a pleasant change. Large menu of steamed shellfish. Our table had snow crab legs and the crab cake sandwich and both were very good. Good attentive staff.

“Right on the pier”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Very good food. Nothing is fried. Fresh. You can watch boats come in with their catches. We ate outside. It was nice.

“Wonderful Crab Claws!!!”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

The front desk clerk at our condo recommended this place to us and I'm SO glad she did! Gumbo and steamed crab claws were AMAZING! I got the stuffed shrimp which was really great also. My son liked his chicken. My husband really enjoyed the steamed crab legs. The only thing that wasn't perfect was that they over cooked my brothers steak and under cooked my moms. But they fixed it quickly. We will for sure come back again next year while vacationing!
