Being that it was Mardi Gras, we decided to go to dinner at Boudreaux's Cajun Grill. Baxter A., our server, was at our table almost immediately. He was friendly, efficient and personable. We ordered a cup of crab & spinach bisque and a cup of bayou gumbo, along with shrimp & grits and a side of corn macque choux. The food was really good. Since we had driven through New Orleans and had been unsuccessful when we tried to stop for beignets, we ordered them at Boudreaux's and, believe me, we were not disappointed. The total price was more than reasonable for an excellent dinner. Boudreaux's Cajun Grill had a great atmosphere and excellent food and service.

Now THIS, my friends, is what a true coffee shop should be like. Excellently crafted coffees, couches to sit in, walls to draw on. You can't help but find your inner artist when you walk into this aromatic cafe. It's definitely a "must" on your trip through Daphne!

Like other restaurants in this area, very slow service. I don't enjoy spending 2 hours at a restaurant!

Guido's

Welcome to Guido's! We have a chalkboard menu that changes daily for lunch and dinner. We keep some tried and true staples on both menus, but also enjoy creating new dishes featuring seasonal produce and seafood. “The Board” allows us to be creative with our food, and gives our guests a taste of the best we have to offer. Because we make everything fresh and in-house, we may occasionally sell out of an item shown on the board. Don’t worry, there will be plenty of other options to choose from! We also have a kid’s menu available. You can keep up with the daily menus on our Facebook page, and on Instagram and Twitter.

We stopped at Guido's to try a new place and enjoy Italian food which we loved. We arrived at 5 and chose to eat in the bar area until the adjoining restaurant opened at 5:30. Having wine in the bar area and watching the food that was served there, all seemed great. At 5:30 we moved into the dining room. (Btw Guido's is two separate restaurants. All the lunch reviews you see on TA pertain to the bar, not the restaurant.)

We ordered lamb T-bones and Crab Tortellini. We ate only 25% of our food. The lamb was burned on the outside and raw inside. The Tortellini was mostly a bowl of dough. We did enjoy the crayfish bisque which was excellent. Our waitress was great. They charged us $4 less for the Tortellini when we complained.

We will not return to Guido's!

R Bistro & Pastry

Reviewed By chr_8 - lb,il

We walked in without a reservation during a Mardi Gras parade. Happily we were seated almost immediately at the table of our choosing. We enjoyed our drinks, appetizers, bread, and our entrees. The service was both pleasant and efficient. We particularly enjoyed the fact that certain entrees come in two sizes so that depending on how hungry you are you will be satisfied. We would definitely go back again.

You enter the restaurant and order by the door. Then find a place to seat yourself. When they call your number you get your food. We got BBQ and Fried Chicken and both were excellent. The sides were nice sized portions. The meal also comes with some cornbread. Glad we found this place!

My cousin said to try...and I did!! Ordered the fried oysters and a fried soft shell crab...both were very good..as were the hush puppies!! However, after I ordered it was mentioned that the restaurant closed in 15 minutes...but for me not to rush as they had plenty of cleaning to do. Had I known beforehand I would have gone elsewhere to enjoy my food at a more leisurely pace.

Sunset Pointe at Fly Creek Marina

A beautiful waterfront restaurant! Full service, full bar, great seafood & a great view! Best sunsets ever! Brought to you by Chef Pete Blohme of Panini Pete's!

Reviewed By HWHCF - Cincinnati, Ohio

Three generations went to Sunset Pointe for dinner. The manager made my 88-year-old mother feel considered but not condescended to. He made sure she was comfortable without any fuss about it. The Margaritas are vibrant--not too sweet; the appetizers and entrees were all fresh and well-seasoned. At one point, everyone was asked to raise our glasses to toast the beauty just outside the windows. The restaurant is lively without being too loud, and we had extremely good food and good service.

East Shore Cafe

We have been in business for 18 years. We pride ourselves on fresh ingredients served daily. Dinner is also available on Friday and Saturday nights from 5pm - 9pm. As always, East Shore Cafe is a BYOB establishment. You bring your favorite libation and we have everything else covered.

Make your visit memorable. Enjoy a cup or bowl of the crab and corn chowder. It is so good! The soup is chock full of corn and crab and it is nicely finished with a sprinkling of parmesan on top. My family visits this restaurant frequently and are never disappointed in the choices we make. I am torn between the crab cake sandwich and the honey-pecan chicken salad on toasted sourdough bread as my favorites, although my husband enjoys the Philly Steak Sandwich and my son is a big fan of the quesadillas. Sides with your sandwich include really good cole slaw, potato salad, fruit or chips. All of those are good choices, although the cole slaw is especially tasty. We never have room for dessert unfortunately, although their cookies at the cash register look very tasty. There is room inside and outside to sit and Sundays at lunch, the restaurant is especially busy. This is a not-to-be-missed place on a visit to Daphne. You won't be disappointed.
