    Our waiter, Joe, is a national treasure who should be protected at all costs. The atmosphere was absolutely beautiful (but not as beautiful as Joe). Food presentation was impressive and everything was good. A little bland for my taste but I am from Louisiana and used to lots of spice. (Luckily Joe added enough spice to the night so we were all happy regardless). Overall a great night and meal with a wonderful server that I hope we get to see again next year.

    We went to celebrate our anniversary, and dinner was so delicious! We asked if there was availability on the patio, and got lucky to be seated by the railing so we had an unobstructed view of the Gulf. Absolutely beautiful view! Our server was attentive and friendly, and we received a complementary dessert due to our anniversary! That was a nice surprise. Overall very pleased and will return!

    We had a reservation for 6:30 pm. When we arrived there were several tables on the balcony open for 2. The hosted sat us at a table for 4 right by the door. We asked if we could move to a table by the railing. She was rude and said we could move to a high boy or keep the table by the door. FYI, 2 hours later no one sat at several of those tables. My husbands steak was overcooked, sent it back for rare one, server gave him a complimentary glass of wine. I was finished when he got his dinner. I had the grouper, it was delicious. Didn't care for the compliments to this dish, garbanzo beans with a watery sauce. We love your location and ambience. We are willing to pay for quality service, food, and experience. The food although good just wasn't worth the price. Our server was great!! Friendly and professional. The valet service was excellent. Very disappointing the menu on your website online was no where near what was actually on the menu. Out of lamb and out of the chocolate basil ice cream.

    How could I not have known about this gem of a Gulf Shores restaurant? We originally were scheduled for outdoor dining, but due to wind, moved indoors. The service was perfect! My wife got the scallops and said that they were great. I got the beef cheek linguine, and it was so good that we took the leftovers home! So many dishes looked good on the menu that we’ll be back!

    We have loved the restaurant in the past. We checked out menu before we made our reservation and saw several dishes that interested us. We learned upon arrival that the menu had changed and there was not a single offering of grilled or blackened fish of any kind. It was also heavy on the bacon and prosciutto which everyone is not into. No special was offered on this Saturday night and we had our fingers crossed after looking at the menu that there would be a fresh catch special. The service was very good. We ordered off the appetizer menu to have seafood that wasn’t fried. It was chilled and good but was expensive for food that we didn’t really want but was the best choice for us. I hope someone rethinks the menu. This used to be a 5 star restaurant to us.

    Great food. Nice Place. Wanted to sit outside but it was too windy. so we sat inside. The doors to go outside kept being left open so the inside was like a wind tunnel. Kind of annoying. We had scallops and grouper for dinner and colossal shrimp for an appetizer. All of it was amazing. We will certainly go back. Highly recommended.

    Food was great. There was a rehearsal dinner going on at the portion of the restaurant where you can sit beachside so we were not able to go out and enjoy the view. Not faulting the restaurant, just if you're expecting to sit out there you might want to ask about availability. Everyone and everything were on point!

    Our first time here and really enjoyed it. View is fantastic from the outside eating deck. My wife and I each had a shrimp cocktail and it was served with a great little salad. She had the prosciouto wrapped Grouper and I had the NY Strip with the Potato Pava. Both were fantastic. Prices are high but considering the atmosphere and the view and the menu choices it is worth the splurge. We will definitely visit again.

    Our fourth time at Perch. We come in October and April when we stay at the campy. Everything was great. Veronica was excellent. Waiting time for our food was quite long. It was Saturday night, so the restaurant knew they were going to be busy. No excuse of being surprised that they were busier than usual. Every table was reserved. Veronica was nice and offered wine in compensation. Overall, we recommend and we will be back.

    The food was delicious! Please try the cauliflower and Gruyere soup as well as the oysters for an appetizer. They were absolutely delectable. Scallops shrimp lobster ribeye Wil were on point. Desserts are also a plus as well as the drinks and beverage choices. We had such a wonderful time they are celebrating birthdays.

    We found it difficult to locate the restaurant, the signage is poor. Very good service and a good menu.

    A drink was spilled across the table with red wine splashing on my wife’s shirt. The staff downplayed it and acted like it wasn’t a big deal. Didn’t comp the drink or anything. Food was sub par especially for the price, and the waiter seemed disinterested at best. Cocktails were not good at all. We had high hopes, but we had a terrible experience. Will not be going back.

    Wife and I had an amazing dinner. Ribeye was fantastic, sides were perfect for 2, she had the pecan chicken, (also fantastic) drinks were great, and service was great. We sat outside on the deck, watched the sunset, and after dinner we finished our drinks by the fire pit. If you got the coin, I definitely recommend it.

    Had the prosciutto wrapped grouper. The fish was outstanding. BUT, it was served with garbanzo beans with almost negligible amounts of kale and roasted tomato--very little flavor. The bean mixture did nothing to enhance or complement the dish, and in fact detracted from it. Very poor complement to the fish. I would recommend a risotto/veggie side to complement the grouper. My wife had the steak and would rate it as pretty good, but not great (8 of 10). She really liked the Vidalia onion puree, but there wasn't enough of it to adequately enhance the flavor of the steak. The side was a broccoli dish and it was so tough she couldn't chew most of it. The chocolate cake slice we shared was massive and decadent, with strawberries, bits of dark chocolate and hazelnuts on the side. We took most of it home and ate it twice more. If you like dark chocolate.... This was our third dinner at Perch. Loved the scollops on the previous encounter. We'll go back and order something else. Hopefully, they will change the side with the prosciutto-wrapped grouper and provide more of the puree with the steak.

    Whole fried fish entree and Diver scallops entree were both excellent. Oksana was a perfect server — attentive and helpful. Wonderful Chocolate layer cake for desert. The food, service and kitchen were much better compared to Food Craft, the downstairs restaurant.

    Disappointing. Had a 2 o’clock reservation. Should had been informed that the bar closed at 2, band quite playing at 2. The dessert table had many items that was depleted. Many brunch items were luke warm or cold. Definitely not worth the price.

    The Easter Brunch was very impressive. So many choices & everything was delicious. The added bonus was watching all the little kids dressed up & excited to see the Easter bunny walking around passing out chocolates. So adorable.
