Doesn't physically present itself from the outside but very worth the stop. Continuous running special is all you can eat shrimp for $12. I think between the 4 of us we had an entire shrimp boat full!! Excellent fried shrimp with normal "basket" side. Have been there 3 times since arriving end of December. Be sure and order your 2nd...

Off the main road and not a big place, but you will not be disappointed. The food is made to eat, so it is fresh. The service was friendly and excellent. As mentioned this is a typical restaurant in a beach city, so no elegance . You will find good food that is inexpensive and excellent service. They have happy... More

While an extremely informal atmosphere, Neptune's is our most frequent choice in Gulf Shores. The specials are really good and very reasonably priced. Saturday night we enjoyed raw oysters and had the shrimp and fish specials. Perfectly cooked!

Gulf Shores, Alabama has all the fast food chains we've all come to know. However, in the midst of all the chains sits a locally owned gem of a restaurant serving up hometown cuisine. Though seafood is their specialty Neptune's has a large menu for the people who do not like fish. Their beautiful old fashioned bar serves up specialty... More

We ate lunch and the service was exceptional even with a very busy restaurant. My broiled shrimp and fish with potatoes and corn were great. My husband had the baked seafood dish and it too was served with potatoes and corn.

We had heard about the cheesecake which was beyond fabulous but what we found was so much more...delicious deep fired mushrooms...and the Royal Red shrimp were amazing...try the Blue mixed drink it was so good...Fantastic service...I'm sure this place is packed during the summer not sure if they take reservations but it would be worth a wait!

We always visit King Neptune's when we visit Gulf Shores. It's very small and almost always a wait, but the food is delicious. They have great lunch specials-and not only seafood- and cheap!!! I've never had anything that wasn't delicious 😊. I gave it 4 stars because there is always a wait and service is slow- but food is very... More

The folks at our hotel suggested we try this place. It's a local or neighborhood spot that is known for steamed royal red shrimp & other Gulf seafood dishes. Quiet night in December (only about half full) but the food was good; the mixed drinks fair (not sure if the regular bartender was working that night). Food was fresh and... More

Loved the fish served here. The whole family including kids like it. It's a small local owned place with friendly local servers with that old small town feel in the restaurant. The opposite of a chain place and just radiates old time charm. That being said, it is popular and the seating in the restaurant is limited. We came in... More

Lines to get in a restaurant are not uncommon in Gulf Shores, but you don't see it often at lunch. King Neptune's had a line waiting to get inside...it's that good. For lunch, I ordered the shrimp and catfish fingers, both of which were breaded in corn meal. Both were great. Served with fries and a hush puppy, the meal... More
