7 Ways to Love Oysters on Alabama’s Beaches
Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are havens for fresh seafood, including oysters.
Especially if you are an oyster aficionado, there are some eateries in coastal Alabama that you really shouldn’t miss.
The Original Oyster House offers oysters prepared in traditional ways, including fried and on the half shell, but they also serve some proprietary dishes using this Gulf favorite. Try Parmesan Garlic Oysters with garlic butter, parsley and cheese, or Joe and Dave’s Favorite Oysters baked in garlic cocktail sauce with Bill-E’s small-batch bacon and grated parmesan cheese.

The Royal Oyster is a small restaurant specializing in flavor-packed boutique oysters and other local culinary dishes. Locally sourced, fresh ingredients make the difference in their oyster creations. In fact, the full-service oyster bar is filled with oysters homegrown in Fort Morgan. It’s more than a dish, it’s an experience.
Brick & Spoon boasts a fun way to eat oysters for breakfast or brunch. Try dishes such as Oyster Bed - an English muffin with cornmeal-dusted oysters, pecan-smoked bacon, tomato, poached eggs and rosemary hollandaise - or Deviled on the Bayou, which includes tasso deviled eggs topped with fried oysters and Sriracha aioli.
