With a plethora of amazing restaurants already available in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, these new spots prove that too much of a good thing is absolutely a good thing!
If you love Mexican cuisine, you may already know that Cactus Cantina is one of the best spots on the Alabama Gulf Coast, but did you know they're opening new locations? That's right! The restaurant now boasts locations in Gulf Shores, 2 in Orange Beach, Fairhope, and Pensacola. The newest Orange Beach location now serves breakfast!
The newest venture from the people who brought you Fisher's at Orange Beach Marina (you know, the one that gets James Beard's attention and is known nationally as one of the best restaurants in the south by publications like Southern Living), Playa at Sportsman Marina offers Instagram-worthy food that tastes as good as it looks. Try items like grilled oysters, tuna poke, sandwiches, fresh fish, and street tacos.
For fresh Gulf seafood, sushi, steaks, and Southern cuisine, Fin & Fork has you covered. From the Shipp family (you may recognize the name from Shipp's Harbour Grill), this family-friendly establishment is a must-try for elevated Coastal cuisine.
Who needs a plain hot dog when you can have yours wacked? We're drooling over toppings available at Wacked Out Weiner in Gulf Shores like homemade chili, fried pickles or jalapenos, coleslaw, mac n cheese, bacon, and more! Located at Pelican Place in Gulf Shores, you've never had a hot dog like these!
If you've ever dreamed of stepping back into the 1950's for a meal at a diner, Gulf Shores' Sunliner Diner is the pace to be. When you step into the Sunliner Diner you would never know this is the 21st century (except for all the people taking pictures with their smart phones). Melts, reuben sandwiches, fried fish, and meatloaf are just a few offerings on the lunch and dinner menu. Breakfast - featuring items like steak and eggs, eggs Benedict, and biscuit sandwiches - is served all day.
If you think truly authentic Cajun and Creole cuisine is hard to find outside of Louisiana, think again! Homemade, traditional Cajun fare is gracing the menu of The Crazy Cajun in Gulf Shores. It's the place to go to curb your gumbo, boudin, and etouffe cravings.
Many Gulf Shores and Orange Beach restaurants take pride in sourcing ingredients locally, but Fly Away Farm Foods may be the one that takes it most seriously. Whether you dine in or grab something to go, you are getting the freshest food from Baldwin County's farms.
