We love Pirate's Cove. Our group has been to the Gulf Shores area twice and visited Pirate's Cove each time. Nine years ago Pirate's Cove introduced us to Bushwackers and we have concluded that Pirate's has the best in the area with their extra shot of rum and real ice cream. Also their burgers feature sauteed onions and their special fun wow sauce which is some sort of yummy mustard, spice, and relish???? Good stuff.
I love the fun atmosphere, it's a great vacation place that seems to be loved by the locals on a regular basis. Next time I'm hitting up this joint at night time for what has to be a hopping party with live music.
Also I love their dog friendly attitude. Make sure to say hi to Tiki the large English Mastiff who lives on the property, you literally can't miss her.
Definitely not a place for the faint at heart per the setup is a tiny bit rough, but the people are VERY friendly. I was surprised that they take credit cards. There seems to be a mixed group of patrons at all ages. This place is for real, I can't wait to go back.
