She Crab Soup
A rich and creamy Charleston classic.

Topped with honey-butter
It was delicious as always! I always have a great experience and our server was sweet!
Party of 12 (split among 2 tables). Great service, friendly staff, and the California Dreamin salad is amazing! You won’t leave hungry! She crab soup was great as well. 8 kids, 4 adults, and drinks were always full / service was prompt even in a very busy restaurant. We were very pleased with the service and food!
It was amazing it made my mom so Happy on her birthday . She is truly happy . Also a huge shout out to the crew they was awesome and fast
Not one of the better experiences I’ve had. The hostess at the wait stand (who was dressed in a mid drift top which I don’t think is the best impression to give customers when they first walk in) was snarky when after checking in and her saying she was checking with the server to see if we could be seated and then never telling us yes or no. She just continues looking at the ipad/computer, acting as if she wanted to be anywhere else. After several minutes I noticed that she was seating people who also had reservations ahead of us. I went up and asked her very nicely why those that were just walking in got seated before we did, and we had a reservation. She said “oh they’ve been here for thirty minutes.” I never saw them sitting outside or in the waiting area. We waited a total of 15 minutes past our reservation time for a table. Her reasoning for the delay was staffing and so many “parties”, but yet there were several open tables and booths that she could have sat us in. When we finally got seated, she had a male assistant sit us at a booth that was directly in front of the kitchen, where all we could hear was the cooks and wait staff singing along to the radio, plates crashing. It didn’t make for a relaxing dining experience. We didn’t even get silverware until we had ordered. The food was good and hot though.
I’ve eaten at CD many times and have NEVER had this level of service. Hopefully the experience will be much better next time.
This restaurant was above and beyond my expectations when my family went to have dinner. From the staff to the food. I believe every item on the menu would be delicious. Everything was made exactly how ordered. We left with full bellies and empty plates. Will definitely be back.
Best baby back ribs ever! Service was great and great atmosphere!
Salads came out before the Starters and the entrees before we could finish the Starters. Very rushed dinner. Food was great.
Food and service was excellent.
Service and food were great!
Great place to eat with a date or with family. It was so busy on the night we went but didn't have to wait at all due to our OpenTable reservation. Food was good although we had to send back a pasta dish that was cold. They cooked a new one and it was excellent. Our server, Brittany, was outstanding and personable. She was on top of everything!
Ribs had very little meat. Steaks are very expensive. We had eight people crammed into a circle area that was just too crowded.
We have always loved eating there but a disappointment this visit. But we’ll be back….I’m sure it will be back to what we’ve always loved about this restaurant!
Great server. Would like more vegetarian and even vegan options on the menu.
Food, service and restaurant were great
Great time we sat outside
Food was good great atmosphere and the service was A1
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.
