When we first started visiting the area, I was a bit worried that finding a good vegetarian meal in an area known for fresh seafood may prove difficult. Thankfully, my fears were for nothing and I have fallen in love with going out to eat in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. We often talk about what restaurants we can’t wait to return to on our next trip. The restaurants in the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach area have done a wonderful job of designating menu items, so it is easy to see what is vegetarian or vegan. I have never had a problem getting a meal that I have loved.
I normally check out the restaurant menus online before we go so I have an idea of what my options are and if they fit what I am craving that night. This is a great way to plan and make sure you can enjoy amazing meals during your stay in Coastal Alabama. Don’t be afraid to ask the restaurant which menu options are available! Many times I have found out about a chef special that is not written in the menu, but that they love preparing for guests.
Let me introduce you to ten of my favorite vegetarian and vegan-friendly restaurants on the Alabama Gulf Coast. This list could easily be double or triple the length because there are many great options for vegetarians and vegans in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
