    Took my wife for her birthday and our first visit. She loved the Seafood pasta and Caprese salad. I had the Shrimp and Lobster Scampi which was excellent. The gumbo was some of the best that I have ever had (even got an order to take home for the next day. My wife had the Crème Brûlée for dessert and greatly enjoyed it. I had the Bananas Foster Cheesecake which was good but my least favorite part of the meal (I am not a fan of ginger which was in the Cheesecake). We will definitely be back even though it is an hour drive. Our server was excellent and really worked with my wife to come up with a wine that she would love.

    The food was ok . We felt like the meal was a little rushed. My husband’s food came out incorrectly . I feel like for the price the experience could have been better . Also told could sit at a high top but the entire time we were there no one came in for the “reservation “ that they had .

    Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Sean’s. Appetizer of crab-stuffed jumbo shrimp was delicious. We both had prime filets, ordered med rare and medium, but were actually served rare and medium rare, which was ok because the cuts were so good. Sides of asparagus and maque choux were really good, and the dessert, créme broulée with black coffee, was a great finish.

    First visit to Sean’s and it was perfect! Since it was First Friday in Fairhope, we opted for an early evening (5pm). First cocktail (a perfect martini)..., and a side of rosemary herb bread. We ordered from the dinner menu - excellent, varied, many nice choices - tapas, salads, steaks, seafood, pork, chicken, pasta. We had a Sean’s Prime salad and a Tomato Burrata salad, both delicious. I had the Slow Braised Beef Short Ribs over sweet pea and wild mushrooms risotto. Wonderful! My husband had the Seafood Pasta - superb! Finished with a bananas foster cheesecake… Beautiful restaurant, linens and flowers on each table, excluding the 4 high tops and the bar. We chose a high top next to the window. About 3/4ths full on a Friday night. Really looking forward to going back.

    Tried too hard to make the salad exquisite. Not very good. Wife liked the outer crust on her steak. Was cooked correctly and tender. Sauce was good. Server Maxwell was very good.

    While the service and ambience were very good, the entree I had wasn"t. I ordered the seafood pasta. It was very bland as if there was no seasoning at all. Very disappointing!

    Sean's salad was excellent. I had red snapper. It was excellent - very fresh, seasoned and cooked to perfection, and a healthy portion. My wife had short ribs over risotto - very tender and tasty. We shared fried brussels sprouts , which were excellent. It was our first time at this establishment. We will definitely go back. It is pricey, so be prepared for a hefty check.

    The steaks were undercooked and very plain. No seasoning or flavors on the steaks. The mashed potatoes were cold. This is the second time we’ve experienced this there, and we will not be back a third time

    Last night my family and I celebrated my son's birthday at Sean's restaurant. From the warm welcome by the hostess to the attentive service throughout the evening, our dinner was a delightful experience from start to finish. The ambiance perfectly suited the special occasion. The dining room was intimate yet lively, with a cozy atmosphere. The entire staff was exceptionally friendly and our server was truly invested in ensuring we had the best possible evening. I'm vegetarian, and the chef graciously prepared several veggie-centric options. We left full and happy, eager for a return visit soon to enjoy both the wonderful cuisine and warm hospitality at Sean's. I'd highly recommend it for all occasions!

    I can’t say enough nice things about our dining experience! The food was absolutely delicious, the best in Mobile and the surrounding cities and the service was excellent. I would like to take a moment to highlight Joseph. He created the most amazing experience for us from the moment we walked in the door. Friendly, attentive and an absolute joy to have as part of our evening out. Only wish we were local to be able to enjoy this exceptional fine dining more often. However our next trip we will be back!

    Literally thee absolute best experience dining out ever. Starting with the warm welcome soon as we walked in. Next was the flavorful appetizers that were served. Third is the perfectly made smoked drink. Followed by the delicious entrees which included tender braised beef short ribs with duck fat whipped mashed potatoes and asparagus. Also an amazingly flawless cooked filet mignon that melted in my mouth……. I’m sorry I can’t even finish writing this I have to just make another reservation ASAP please excuse me

    This place is less elegant than we expected. The food was good, and portions were acceptable, but it was quite pricey. The staff were courteous and efficient. If you are seeking an upscale atmosphere at a reasonable price look elsewhere.

    We had never tried Sean's before, but really enjoyed our meal and drinks. The acoustics of the room are a bit noisy which made it a little challenging to hear conversation, but we all agreed that we would eat there again when we are in Fairhope.

    We have been to Sean's before, great food, service and atmosphere. Saturday night was awful! First it was our anniversary which they knew in advance, never acknowledge, they were out of steaks because the waitress said they didn't get the order in in time. The NY Strip is the only one the had which my husband did order and it was horrible! Couldn't hardly cut it with the knife. We felt like our waitress was rushing us the entire time. I guess she had other tables to wait on. How said that our very expensive meal, 51st Wedding Anniversary and in beautiful Fairhope was such a disaster. We were just so disappointed in everything!!

    Food was outstanding. Service was outstanding. Bryce is the exact person to work at an establishment of this nature. The wait for the food could be shortened IMO. WAY too loud in there. Totally recommend some type of noise reduction foam on the walls, ceiling, etc… That is really my only complaint but a big one. Couldn’t hardly hear my family’s conversation. Will be back though.
