7 Fantastic Things NOT TO BE MISSED At Alabama Beaches

Where To Stay In Orange Beach, Alabama?

I love the Caribe and recommend it because it is one of my favorite places to stay while visiting Alabama beaches.  I in no way received any commission from this post.  

Even though the Caribe sits on the bay side of the beach, you have views of the ocean.  Our condo had views of the bay, the ocean, and the pools.  The views from the balcony of our condo were breathtakingly beautiful.  We could sit on our balcony and watch all the boats, fishermen, jet skis, and yachts all day long in the bay.  We even saw some dolphins swimming by while watching my son fish in the bay at the Caribe.

Do you need a great place to eat delicious seafood?  If so, you will love The Original Oyster House.

The Original Oyster House has two locations.  One in the beautiful snow white beach of Gulf Shores, Alabama and their second place is in my hometown of Mobile, Alabama.

Best Breakfast Never To Be Missed in Beautiful Orange Beach, AL

My Favorite Breakfast in Orange Beach, AL Is Brick & Spoon

Brick & Stone breakfast or brunch is a fantastic treat.  This is by far one of the best experiences I have ever had for breakfast.  I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant!  First of all, the food is beyond good.  In fact, it’s way beyond average.  The first time we tried this restaurant, we loved it so much we went back before leaving to go home.  These guys are doing breakfast right.

See pictures and my review on Brick & Spoon here.

Wolf Bay Lodge Is One of the Best Gulf Shores Restaurants 

You can never go wrong with any of the seafood at Wolf Bay Lodge.  The seafood is always freshly caught and fantastic.  I prefer the seafood fried or kicked up by blackening it.  My favorites include the shrimp Po-Boy which is served hot and loaded with fresh shrimp.  I also love the blackened grouper sandwich and the shrimp alfredo.  Whatever you choose it is always hot, fresh, seasoned well and terrific.

Burris Farm Market located in Loxley, Alabama just off I-10 is a favorite family stop.  It not only has a vast supply of fresh fruits and vegetables but incredibly fresh local seafood and a bakery.  Like most travelers headed to the beautiful snow white beaches in Alabama, I have been stopping at Burris every since it open in 1986.

How To Find Hidden Gem For Awesome Seafood Orange Beach

Are you looking for a nicer seafood restaurant in Orange Beach?  Maybe something besides fried seafood?  If so, you will love Shipp’s Harbour Grill. Orange Beach has so many delicious incredibly fresh seafood restaurants, but Shipp’s Harbour Grill is unique.  Although you will find the typical fried seafood there, they offer so much more.   They serve their fresh fish sauteed or grilled with amazing toppings like crab and shrimp with delicious sauces.

See my review and pictures for Harbour Grill.

LAMBERT’s Cafe Is The Best Place To Catch A Roll!

If you plan to visit Alabama beaches, you will not only want to fill up on the amazing seafood but also enjoy great Southern Cooking and an enjoyable family experience at Lambert‘s.  If you have never been to Lambert’s, you will be impressed with the
enormous size of the portions.  You will have plenty to take home and enjoy later.  Not only is the portion size huge, but with every meal, they include Pass-Arounds, which consists of all you can eat Fried Potatoes & Onions, Macaroni & Tomatoes, Black-Eyed Peas, Fried Okra, Hot Rolls & Sorghum. My favorite is the fried chicken.

See my review and pictures of Lambert’s here.
