Absolute worst service we've ever had. Eat at this restaurant at least twice a month and never have had an issue. David, our server tonight, couldn't make it more obvious that he was trying to complet...ely ignore us. Very quick to take our order but never came back for refills or to check on us, even though we were in the middle of his section. After the check was finally dropped, we had to wait 30 minutes for him to come back and get the check. When asked if we did anything to upset him, he started joking with the table behind us that he "treats every human with respect". By the time we left we had been there over an hour and a half. After being a server for 17 years, my husband is currently a server, and we eat out A LOT, this was the very first time we left $0 as a tip. We generally tip at least 20% for mediocre service, way more for good service. We've always had great service from Alex and the other servers, this guy was just awful.

Side note... something that would not have bothered me had the service not been absolutely awful; menu had the shrimp and grits for $18, we were charged $20. Again, no big deal, but just added salt to the wound after the horrible service.

Food was mediocre and priced too high for the quality but understandable considering the location. There were 10 of us and service was so slow. The waitress, bless her heart, spilled her tray of alc...oholic drinks all over my friend drenching her concert going attire. No adjustment was made to their bill. Waitress said the establishment would not comp that it would have to come off her earnings. So not only did my friend have to endure wet sticky clothes they also felt guilty to expect some type of consideration. Mistakes happen and I think it is terrible for the establishment to punish a server who is not able to absorb the cost of her mistake. I will not go back to eat there ever again. The waitress was sweet and very apologetic. I think she should work somewhere else. Somewhere that respects their employees and supports them through a mistake. See More

We came here the night of the green day concert. 6 of us sat down to the most amazing food. My grouper was the best fish dish I have ever had and I live in new Orleans where we know good seafood. Ever...yone enjoyed their meals. I have to commend them on their fantastic service as well. While ordering our meals I had forgot to tell them that my 11 year old daughter just wanted a steak with no sauce or sides as she can't have anything touch her food. They brought out a beautiful steak of which my daughter thought they were trying to poison her, when they saw the reaction of my daughter they had two different managers come out and assure she would get a plain steak the way she likes it. I cannot express enough how much that meant to her and the rest of our guests. Outstanding service, Great food. Thanks Ginny Lane staff, you guys rock! See More

The food and service were great! We will definitely be back. The bacon wrapped shrimp were amazing, the salad easily top shelf and the coffee & dessert were on point. Easily the best place we ate o...n the Wharf. See More

I see a couple of negative reviews on here. Why, I can't even imagine! We eat here every day that we are in town (usually 8-10 day out of the year for the last four years at least!) and have never had... a bad experience. Great service, excellent food at very reasonable prices! We love Ginny Lane and Gilbey's! See More

Food was good, but it took over 40 minutes for our gumbo, salad, grilled cheese, and fish tacos. I confirmed Happy Hour prices with our server (who was very nice), but we were still charged full price... for our drinks (didn't notice until I got home). See More

Ate here for the 1st time and it was grande! Salads, bread, crab cakes & filet mignon were delicious! Very sweet waitress, and atmosphere was really nice. Had a front table by the entertainment, Lones...ome Mel on guitar & harmonica, which we really enjoyed-just right, not too loud. Really nice date night, thanks to Ginny Lane's! See More

My friend and I were looking for a new place to eat and found this gem of a restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was phenomenal. I have an odd food allergy and the staff and cooks were w...onderful and understood. I plan on going back the next time that I am in Gulf Shores. I recommend that everyone eats here. :) See More

Ate dinner there with my family. I had the shrimp special, daughter had steak, husband had the shrimp and grits. Waitstaff was nice but we waited a long time for anyone to come take our order. Service... was very slow. Food was ok. Had better food at the OB/GS traditional restaurants. See More

Great food, reasonable price, good service. I see a few negative reviews, but we’ve never had a problem there and the brunch is great.

We visited GL for the first time this past weekend and it surpassed our expectations! My husband got the grouper and I had the seafood pasta, I cannot tell you how amazing the both of them were! We wi...ll be back!

After reading some other posts about service, let me also mention that we went during the Blue Marlin Tournament, were seated immediately and never once did we wonder where our server was. Everything about our experience was great. We also got the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer and that was an awesome as well.

Awesome food, service, and entertainment! We come to Orange Beach at least once a year and this was very likely the best food we've had!

Tuesday's Winter Weekly specials are AYCE (Fried or Grilled) Shrimp served with Hushpuppies and Slaw, Butter, and Cocktail Sauce - $15.00 and $1.99 Margarita on the Rocks. We think that is a combination that will make your Tuesday fantastic. or call 251-224-6500
