Two Tempting Coastal Culinary Crawls on Alabama Beaches
If you are visiting Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, have you considered where and what to eat?
You want to get the best palette-pleasing experiences, so I have put together a couple of culinary crawls that will not only give you a taste of the town, but a quick tour as well!
Coastal Culinary Crawl #1
We are going to start out at The Wharf with the Italian-based eatery, Villaggio Grille. This Orange Beach restaurant is known for an extensive wine list, making it the perfect place for a pre-dinner vino paired with a tantalizing appetizer. I recommend Devils on Horseback for yumminess and good conversation. I won't ruin the surprise for everyone guessing what exactly this will be.
After appetizers are savored, hit the trail to Bill's by the Beach for entrees that are made with fresh, farm-to-table ingredients. Check out the Gulf Shores sunset time and try to arrange your arrival at Bill's to catch the beautiful and changing evening skies. The fresh catch is always a great pick, but my favorite mainstay at Bill's is the blackened Gulf shrimp with stone-ground yellow grits with parmesan and smoked gouda cheeses. It's always fun with friends to order different entrees and share to get a more diverse culinary experience.
When everyone's dinner has settled, load up and head to Lucy Buffett's LuLu's for amazing key lime pie and live music! If there's a wait, no worries! Waiting is half the fun at this Gulf Shores restaurant. Three bars, a large gift shop and lots of music will entertain your group until a table is ready.
