Eat In or Dine Out in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

Seems like the closer we get to spring, the more I crave seafood. I guess my body has learned that with spring comes a trip to Gulf Shores & Orange Beach, which inevitably results in an indulgence (perhaps overindulgence) of Gulf seafood.

The area just offers so many excellent Gulf Coast seafood restaurants: The Hangout, LuLu’s, and the Original Oyster House are a few of my favorites. Just thinking about it, I can already taste the oysters, the Gulf shrimp, the po’ boys….

But of course seafood isn’t the only dining option. Whether you want barbecue, Chinese, Italian, or just a simple coffee house, there are plenty of Gulf Shores restaurants to help satisfy your appetite.

And as appealing as any of these options are, there’s one more that’s equally as appealing: buying the ingredients and making a delicious seafood meal right in my own condo kitchen. Book a Brett/Robinson condo or hotel and you have access to a fully equipped kitchen—ideal for eating in and saving a little money.
