Delish and great service!
A great experience at the Safari Club last week! Highly recommend!
Chef Greg and his staff continue to delight us with his creative and delicious food beautifully presented. We’ll be back!
Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Love the vegan selections!
Always a classy place! We love it! Brunch has 3 dollar mimosas and the music entertainment was great!
We had a great time sitting on the patio watching some of the animals. Food and Entertainment was great! We will definitely be back.
We love the Safari Club! Food is some of the most sophisticated/delicious in our area and atmosphere is fabulous.
Great variety of choices, interesting drink menu. The food was flavorful. Even the pizza on the kid's menu was very good!
Take a minute to read the "about us" section on their website. They are Alabama's first "green" restaurant, they source ingredients from local farmer, and have their own veggie/herb garden. Also, a percentage of their bar sales goes to elephant conservation efforts in Asia and Africa! We definitely don't mind choosing this place for dinner!
Food is so unique and creative! I have a seafood and fish allergy and struggle to find restaurants when we vacation in Gulf Shores. Not only was the food incredible, the service was as well! Josh H was our server and he was a true delight! He went above and beyond to ensure that my meal selections were completely safe for me. He was so attentive genuinely concerned with us having a wonderful evening. The food, service, and ambience made for a perfect evening! We will be back!
Came here with family of 7 last night. Love the fun atmosphere and great service. Try the grilled shrimp and risotto, seafood pasta, burger, ribeye. All delicious and wonderful side items and root vegetables. Going back this week for a wine dinner:)
The food choices here were so varied that we want to go back again and again to try everything. From Asian, to seafood, to the filet, everything our party tried was amazing! We will definitely be returning to this hidden gem.
Great time for my 30th birthday!!! We all loved the food and drinks
Great food, atmosphere, service, and entertainment! We loved everything about this place. When we walked in it was such a cool Safari vibe and the guitarist/singer was so good!! We all ordered a different shrimp dinner (Coconut, fried, and wood grilled) and we all tried each other’s. All 3 were amazing. They make all of their dressings in house and the white balsamic vinaigrette was so good. Also try the margarita, rice pilaf and homemade ice cream. Our server so so sweet and gave excellent service. We sat inside, but went on the patio before dinner and got to see the lion and hear him roar, which was really cool. We will Definitely be back.
We came in from out of town and never read on the restaurant’s website that this is located at a zoo. We almost didn’t go in, but I’m glad we did. The food was great and the restaurant has a grown up feel. I thought it would have lots of kiddos but not the case. There was a wine tasting the day we went so it was crowded. They put us in a room separate from the large group so we were thankful for that. I’d recommend this place. It’s not what you might expect. Very nice dinner.
Food was great as always! We timed it perfectly sitting down at a table outside at 6 PM because we were treated to roars by Simba the lion from across the zoo as the sun went down. Such a special place with unique atmosphere, fantastic food and friendly service. Trivia - Safari Club is the FIRST Green-Certified Restaurant in the entire state of Alabama and they have great vegetarian and vegan options!
Great food, amazing atmosphere and amazing staff.
We had the opportunity to dine with new friends and chose The Safari Club based on recommendations by others that had dined there. Our goodness fresh and delicious! Our server, Katie, was excellent! We will he dining with you again soon.
Must visit. The food was great ( we had the swordfish special, fried shrimp, shrimp tacos and the thai salad). Additionally, the appetizer of fried goat cheese was great. Our server Josh was super nice and very attentive. The live music was an unexpected treat
Additional, our tables were socially distanced and all the servers wore their masks.
The food was delicious and fresh. Best food and ambience I had in a long time
The staff was friendly and our server was awesome. The appetizers were amazing! The blackened shrimp taco’s were fabulious. An explosion of flavor in every bite. I highly recommend The Safari, if your looking for something a little different than the norm with a unique ambience all it’s own. It’s a 10 in my book. I’m looking forward to our next visit.
Safari was a really fun place to have a date night. What made it perfect was our waitress. Kris was amazing. She was prompt and fun. We had fish and steak and both meals were very good. The coconut shrimp were also great. Go in, enjoy some live music and have a glass of wine. You won’t be disappointed.
Wonderful Sunday Brunch with special friends to celebrate a 60th birthday! Loved having the jazz music! Hope they will continue this!
Thank you for making Sissy's birthday so fun. She really enjoyed herself. Pizzas are delicious.
Chef Craig B has done an amazing job here. If you’re thinking you don’t want to eat at a “zoo” restaurant, this place will change your mind. It’s a pleasure from the moment you’re walking up to the entrance until you are walking out.
Excellent fresh food. Service excellent
Great food and atmosphere!
Awesome drinks and service.
Great service at the bar, and food is always good.
The grilled okra was sooooo good! My husband and I both enjoyed it. I had the catch of the day, grouper, it was excellent. My husband had the wood fire grilled chicken, it was excellent too. Service was great. We will definitely be back.
Excellent experience. The menu has unique items and the Key Lime pie is to die for!
Alexis was fantastic. The ribs are amazing. The view of the zoo is very cool. Well worth it!
Great food and ambiance.
Fabulous fun food, and Victoria was an amazing and witty server. 5 stars!!!!!
Good and service was amazing. Was a bit hard to hear table conversation with the live band but we made do. Would definitely return to enjoy the outdoor scenery
Fantastic! Very impressed with food and atmosphere! Have always had a hard time finding both in Gulfshores. We’ll definitely be back!
Had a wedding dinner here. They offered a private room for us which was Stunning to say the least. Our waiter was on top of things and very personable. Would highly recommend the jungle juice. It was so tasty. Everyone ordered something different and was extremely impressed with their food it even looked pretty on the plate. When we are in the area again will definitely return.
Apparently, the tourist don’t know about this place. The food is fabulous. The ambiance is everything you would hope from a place named the “Safari Club” . If you’re lucky, you’ll get a sneak peak at a giraffe, monkey or porcupine. It’s my new fave.
Service was horrible, food was adequate, prices we’re reasonable
Great spot, service was amazing.
The food was great and the staff was exceptional! We will definitely be going back!
