Surf, Turf, and Sassy Eats: A Foodie’s Guide to Gulf Shores

Ahoy, food lovers! Grab your stretchy pants and join me on a lip-smacking adventure through the culinary wonderland of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama. This isn’t just a beach trip; it’s a gastronomic odyssey that’ll make your taste buds dance the cha-cha!

The Seafood Spectacular

Let’s dive right in with the star of the show – seafood! Gulf Shores is like Poseidon’s personal kitchen, and boy, does he know how to cook!

First stop: De Soto’s Seafood Kitchen. This place has been voted “Best Seafood” more times than I’ve had hot dinners (and trust me, I’ve had a lot). Their coconut shrimp is so good, it should be illegal. And if you’re not a fish fan, don’t worry – their chicken tenders are clucking delicious too!

But wait, there’s more! Mikee’s Seafood is where the locals go when they want to feel… well, local. Their fried seafood platters are bigger than your average frisbee and twice as satisfying.

The Sassy Sass of Gulf Shores

Now, let’s talk about Sassy Bass. These folks have more restaurants than I have excuses for skipping the gym. From the Amazin’ Grill to the Chophouse, they’ve got a place for every mood. Feeling fancy? Hit up the Chophouse. Want to pretend you’re on a tropical island? The Cookout Tiki Bar is your jam. They’re like the Kardashians of Gulf Shores – they’re everywhere, and everyone’s talking about them!

Tacky is the New Black

No trip to Gulf Shores is complete without a visit to Tacky Jacks. It’s like your eccentric uncle’s beach house – a little weird, a lot fun, and always a good time. With locations in both Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, you’re never too far from a tacky good time.

Orange You Glad We Didn’t Forget Orange Beach?

Just a hop, skip, and a jump away is Orange Beach, where the dining scene is hotter than Alabama asphalt in August.

Cobalt The Restaurant is where you go when you want to feel fancy-schmancy. The views are so good, you might forget to eat. But don’t, because the food is incredible.

Then there’s Cosmo’s family of restaurants. These folks are like the Corleones of coastal cuisine, minus the horse heads and plus a whole lot of deliciousness.

Beyond the Beach

If you can tear yourself away from the coast (I know, it’s hard), the surrounding towns have some gems too. Foley’s got the Groovy Goat, which is groovy, baby! And if you’re craving some Mexican fiesta, Cactus Cantina in Fairhope will spice up your life.

So there you have it, folks – a whirlwind tour of the Gulf Shores food scene. Remember, calories don’t count on vacation, so eat up! And if anyone asks, you’re not sunbathing – you’re just digesting horizontally.

Bon appétit, y’all!
