Visitors Share Top Restaurants for a Seafood Fix

A trip to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach isn't complete without ordering up fresh Gulf seafood

Known as the fishing mecca of the Southeast, you can’t go wrong with an order of blackened grouper, steamed shrimp or a dozen oysters on the half shell. If you’re looking for a few more ideas for your next seafood fix, our Facebook fans have a few suggestions for you.


“Sunday Brunch at Fisher’s Dockside when it’s warm. Lunch at Wolf Bay Lodge, Foley. Love the salad bar with the variety of seafood salads. Lunch/dinner at Shipp’s Harbour Grill for coconut grouper or Cobalt for crab and shrimp au gratin oysters and parmesan risotto.” –Charlotte Smith

“I’m a little biased, but my two favorite places are the Flora-Bama Yacht Club and Coast Restaurant at the Beach Club. Chef Chris Sherrill and Chef Brody Olive are doing some amazing dishes featuring fish species that are #underutilized or #invasive through our NUISANCE Group nonprofit work. Don’t be afraid to try things you may have never heard of before (lionfish, red porgy, jack crevalle, queen snapper, silk snapper, and others!).” –Chandra Wright

“We go to Billy’s in Bon Secour and get them to steam us some fresh shrimp; they will do any seasoning, plain, Old Bay or spicy. We take them home and fix a salad and baked potato. Fresh seafood heaven!” –Sylvia Clark


“Sea-n-Suds. Right on the beach. Great oysters, cold beer, great shrimp, good service. Who could ask for more?” –Sharon Bahm


“Original Oyster House. Popcorn shrimp and crab cakes – yum! Good service, lovely view, convenient location, and extensive menu are reasons to try it!” –Jeanette Greene
