Gulf Shores Restaurants That are Sure to Make an Impression on Your Taste Buds

For Cajun-style cuisine with a focus on oysters and seafood, we would recommend Acme Oyster House or Original Oyster House Seafood Restaurant. The latter restaurant in the Gulf Shores is also one with a fantastic waterfront view. Other Gulf Shores restaurants with amazing dishes ranging from Southern to Italian fare, as well as spectacular views of the water, include LuLu’s Gulf Shores, Bahama Bob’s Beach Side Café, Sea N Suds, and Papa Rocco’s.

DeSoto’s Seafood Kitchen and The Hangout are both famous for their seafood and their open-air dining with a colorful and fun ambiance. King Neptune’s Seafood Restaurant and The Steamer & Baked Oyster Bar are also known for their cozy atmosphere, in addition to their seafood menus. King Neptune’s is famous for their steamed royal red shrimp, while The Steamer has a cult following for their Steamed and baked crab legs and oysters, as well as their frozen drinks.

If you’re not quite feeling up to having seafood (though we highly recommend having it at least once during your stay), there are also a number of options for “turf” rather than “surf n’ turf.” The Diner is just like its name sounds—an old-school eatery and bar with American classics and a side of entertainment in the form of televisions and videogames. Janino’s Pizza is also highly recommended for its incredible pizza and casual setting.

Finally, if you want to start your morning or your afternoon on a high note, Hazel’s Nook offers delectable breakfast and lunch buffets in a cute, retro atmosphere.
