Our hostess all the way to our waiter was very polite and accommodating for our needs. We enjoyed the atmosphere and did not feel rushed at all encouraged by staff members to take our time. Loved everything about our time at this wonderful establishment. The waiter even complimented us on how well mannered and nice we all were towards home.
Outstanding service. Sam’s a great mgr and Amelia super on service!!
Our regular dining “go to” restaurant👍🏻
Most attentive server in years, at any restaurant. A bit dark, and a bit chaotic at the hostess stand, but they were slammed. Good food, very good cocktails.
Service was good by a young man named Dorian. Cocktails tasty and food was good.
This is a very nice, upscale restaurant with excellent service, and delicious food. Don't miss out on the fried crab claws and bread pudding!
Great meal and service on the patio. The two nacho options, BBQ and Seafood, and the peel and eat shrimp were excellent.
California Dreamers salad was real good. Batter on chicken is extra crispy. Rib eye was very tasty and rolls were great!
Great as usual!! I will definitely be back. The California Dreaming salad (w/ no eggs) is my favorite!!
The server we had was awesome and she was very nice
Good variety on food & drink menu.
Had birthday cake delivered earlier in the day, waitress brought dessert plates & served. Very nice indeed👍
Best chicken and pulled pork sandwich!!! Will definitely being going back!
Great customer service! Food was great! Atmosphere was great!
Good food good service
This was our first visit while staying in Daphne. Took a chance based on reviews. Had the ribeye, crab soup, and crab fingers. One of the best steaks I've ever eaten. Cooked perfectly and seasoned right. Wife had filet. She usually dips her steak in A1. Not this time! We will return next trip through the area.
Great food and service. Even for a busy day and Father’s Day as well, service and food was excellent!!
Went for Father’s Day and got us in and out quick. Great crab soup.
I order the country fired pork chops. No where on the menu did it mention it was spicy. I was very displeased about it.
Maybe is was just a bad night, but this was way off normal. Our waiter was completely vacant, the food took forever and was cold when it got to the table, and despite our feedback to the server that the soda was flat (and that the food was cold), there was nothing more than a shrug.
I won't say we will never return, but we certainly won't be back anytime soon.
Really a shame as this used to be one of our go-to options in Spanish Fort.
Awesome food! We miss the one that closed in Kennesaw,Ga. we were so happy to find this one. We drove 55 min. From Gulf Shores. We were not disappointed.
California Dreaming - Spanish Fort has been hit or miss for us in the past but this visit rocked! Our server, Tracy, and the management staff were on top of everything and the service was incredible! My husband loved the fruit-juice marinated sirloin and the rosemary & thyme crusted salmon was to die for. Positively the best visit we have had at this location!
Service was awesome! Food taste like the grill needed to be cleaned. I order the burger and my sister ordered the steak and both of them tasted like a burned grill
Crab claws excellent
Smokey Pineapple Marg. Excellent
Beer ice cold
New server nervous but friendly and attentive
Entries Fried Pork Chop spectacular
Shrimp San Francisco excellent
Only negative was being in booth next to kitchen, but then again we ask for a booth, wasn't to bad as it was busy and people didn't have time to chat
The food was terrible!!! Over priced and the server had attitude.
The salmon was dry and had no flavor. The mashed potatoes in 2 plates was like paste with no flavor very bland. The blackened chicken Alfredo was dry undercooked and salty. Don’t eat the in house homemade ranch dressing! It will ruin lettuce!
Do not eat here! We paid over $100 for food that we had to take home for me to try and correct just so we could eat it!
If you do eat here use a credit card that will refund if your dissatisfied like American Express! You will want your money back!
Excellent service and my food came out hot and fresh and quick
Food was very good, large portions and fresh. Service was great.
Really good experience! Our waitress was excellent and checked on us wonderfully.
Lovely restaurant! We were a party of 6 and everyone order different things. All of the food was very good with the exception of the fish on the seafood platter. It was a little overcooked. I asked that my oysters be fried hard and they were mlm not.
Great food and service. Kitchen very loud and open. Would have preferred less kitchen noise and view.
Birthday! Great service
It was great
I waited two hours for our meal and it was over cooked and cold by the time I got it. The staff I watched cleaning tables, they didn’t even wipe down the tables with some sort of sanitizing solution filthy dirty !! They took away dirty plates and walked away. I will never go back to this restaurant again I would rather eat McDonald’s and that’s not saying much!! Happy Mother’s Day
Had reservations for 3 and got table around 325 , but didn’t get food till after 5!
There was a long wait for the food but other than that it was great. We waited almost exactly an hour from the time we placed our order until the food came.
Several times I have have been here and it gets better each time. Jack was our server and he did an excellent job. Several times he came by asking was everything all right. This was the first time I have had the baby back ribs but they were awesome.
Would like more vegan and vegetarian options. Current Options are good but extremely limited.
It was awesome the service were great the food was great just had a couple of glitches but everything worked out great!
She Crab Soup, She Crab Soup, did I say “She Crab Soup”?? We thought we were in Charleston SC. Blackened Grouper was the catch of the day and cooked perfectly.
Quality food, excellent service at a reasonable price! We will be back.
