Our food and service was second to none. I ordered Bayou Grouper, my husband ordered Grouper Kevin. There are no words to describe how delicious both of these dishes were. This was the first time we had eaten at Louisiana Lagniappe at this location. We’ve dined at the Destin location many times, and we were concerned that it wouldn’t be as good. Actually it was much better. The ambiance, food, service were absolutely wonderful. So wonderful that we are returning 2 nights later! Excellent!

As always, the whole experience was AMAZING from cocktails to desert. One of our favorite places on the key. With the 2 dine and wine winter offer, it cannot be beat. 👍

I have already posted on Facebook that Laniappe is the best place to eat in Orange Beach by far.
I have eaten here for years and have never been disappointed.
The grouper is excellent any way it is served.
Their two for one entree deal is a great bargain !

We sat at a table over looking the marina. View was great.
My lady had pecan encrusted grouper, and I had shrimp and crab au gratin. Both were quite good . Probably won’t order the au gratin again-very rich (but loaded with shrimp and crab).
Only criticism: noticeably unpleasant odor when entering the restaurant. Our table was away from the entrance, so no odor there, but we would have left without eating had we been seated near the entrance.

It would have been a recommendation in the past, but after recent visit it seems the quality of the staff and food has dropped. Better options if you're going to enjoy an evening out.

Easily one of the best restaurants from Gulf Shores to Pensacola. The several grouper dishes are the best fish dishes in the area by far. You can get it topped with crab, shrimp, lobster, soft-shell crab, or just almandine, or other sauces. Twice baked potato on the side is excellent. Many restaurants serve grouper, snapper, redfish, puppy drum, or mahi, but the grouper at Louisiana Lagniappe is the best. From Sunday to Thursday they have a special priced menu with a bottle of wine, a very good deal. Beautiful setting overlooking a marina. Excellent service. Pasta, steaks, and chicken for those who do not want fish, but why?

The food was outstanding. We had the eggplant w/crabmeat as an appetizer and then the blackened grouper with lobster and crab meat and my date had the tournedos of beef, both off the gluten free menu and wow, both were phenomenal. Great gluten free menu and I have celiac and have not experienced any reactions. The service was definitely lacking but will still be back due to the food and hope for better service next time. I will say the restaurant was a little tricky to find as its tucked behind a shopping center.

We were there to celebrate a birthday with friends while on vacation. The service was excellent and the food amazing. We lingered at the table talking and laughing after dinner and never felt pressured to leave. Kept our glasses filled long after dinner.
A real pleasure of being able to enjoy not only the great meal but
The fellowship of great friends!

We usually love Louisiana Lagniappe, but this was an exception. Due to a traffic delay, we knew we would be late. Called to let them know we would be 20 minutes late, but arrived only 15 minutes late. We were seated in a side dining room next to a waiter station. Food was good as usual and service was ok, but it just was an off putting experience. I must add, it appeared that plenty of tables were available in the main dining area. Will try again, but this left a bad taste in our mouths.
