Top Seafood Restaurants
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you surely know about my affinity for seafood. Really, to describe it as an affinity is putting it lightly. I am absolutely passionate about seafood. Nothing whets my appetite like a steaming plate of seafood favorites. Grouper, crawfish, oysters – I love it all. And through the years, I have yet to find a better place for locally-sourced, fresh and flavorful seafood than the Gulf Coast. Of course, having the right marine environment is only part of the equation. The best seafood is artfully-prepared by talented chefs who can bring out the best flavor through the right pairings and techniques. Whenever I’m in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach, I know that I can eat my heart’s fill of the freshest fish, shellfish and bivalves at the area’s premier restaurants. If you’re a seafoodie like me, you’ll love these top seafood restaurants in the Gulf Shores.
With more than four decades in business, Sea-n-Suds is a mainstay of the Gulf Shores seafood scene. Sea-n-Suds occupies an optimal location with sweeping beach views and alfresco seating. The menu has hearty servings of all the options you’d expect at an affordable price.
Mikee’s Seafood is a casual option with an impressive collection of po-boys and creative seafood specials. Imagine flaky, white catfish seasoned to perfection and stuffed with shrimp and crabmeat topped with a signature cream sauce. Enjoy this plate and more at Mikee’s.
This local favorite has won awards for their fare and service every consecutive year since 2006. Dine here and you’ll see why. My wife really loves DeSoto’s Shrimp and Pasta Marsala. I usually opt for tonight’s catch; they offer so many preparations, you’ll never get bored. I recommend the pecan-encrusted catch.
With two locations in Spanish Fort and Gulf Shores, The Original Oyster House is a staple for southern seafood classics. They’ve got a stellar seasonal menu and unique daily specials for under $9.
I have to say, Beachin’ Bob loves Bahama Bob’s. Celebrating the spirit of coastal leisure, Bahama Bob’s is the place to unwind and dine right on the beach. Their festive menu and fantastic views make it a fun option for the whole family.
The great minds behind Mikee’s Seafood have done it again. The Steamer Baked Oyster Bar is their latest innovation, and it’s got the best selection of baked oysters throughout the Gulf Coast. You’ll leave more than satisfied.
