The Beach House Kitchen & Cocktails is a casual cafe with outdoor seating, perfect when you have spent a whole day sunning or running around shopping and kayaking, and just want to relax with a good margarita and a casual meal.
You can order easy casual meals, comfort food like crawfish mac and cheese, or full dinners. I loved the grilled fish tacos coupled with a from-scratch margarita, made with Camarena Reposado Tequila, fresh lime, triple sec and smoked sea salt.
I also got to visit some of the locations where the seafood is processed. I witnessed shrimp caught within the hour being flash frozen, which keeps it at its freshest. I visited a blue crab processing plant, and was amazed at the labor of love it takes to bring succulent blue crab to market.
About an hour and a half outside of Orange Beach, I stood at the dock where Murder Point Oysters are harvested and ate an oyster that was just taken out of the water. They are small, sweet, delicate and exceptional. You can find Murder Point Oysters served at Fisher’s at Orange Beach Marina and they are possibly the best oysters I’ve ever eaten.
Feast on all the seafood you can while visiting Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, and know you are eating the freshest seafood, always with a great fishing story behind that crab cake or blackened grouper.
