Brick & Spoon
A breakfast and brunch place with amazing Southern and new American cuisine, Brick & Spoon serves up mouthwatering favorites like their cornmeal crusted oysters with sriracha on deviled eggs, softshell crab eggs benedict, and the Killer Creole Omelette with fire roasted grits. Top off your meal with one of their famous Bloody Marys!
Cosmo’s Restaurant & Bar
This popular restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, but be mindful: the food is so good that loyal customers can cause the wait times to get a bit long. If you don’t mind the wait or if you come during an off-peak time, you can revel in the deliciousness of the firecracker shrimp, duck and Andouille sausage gumbo, barbecue crab claws, or their full sushi menu. All with an amazing view of Perdido Pass!
Fisher’s Dockside (and Fisher’s Upstairs)
Recommended by Southern Living Magazine, this restaurant actually houses two separate restaurants under one roof, both with waterfront dining. Fisher’s Dockside is the casual, family-friendly part of the restaurant, while Fisher’s Upstairs provides an upscale dining experience with two bars and a rotating seasonal menu. Both sections serve variations on classic American and Southern cuisine, including shrimp and grits, bushwhackers, pan-seared grouper, and Murder Point oysters.
Orange Beach Local Restaurants: Ginny Lane Bar and Grill
Serving up dishes in the American and Southern culinary tradition, this restaurant is famous for its blackened shrimp over fried green tomatoes, pecan encrusted chicken, the creamy grits with shrimp and bacon, chicken tortellini, and their famous white chocolate bread pudding. The bread pudding recipe was actually willed to the restaurant by their pastry chef!
Doc’s Seafood Shack & Oyster Bar
If you’re looking for a seafood fix, you can’t go wrong with Doc’s! Voted one of the Top 10 Seafood Shacks in America by Fox News, this quaint food spot has served seafood gumbo, fried crab claws, golden fried oysters and more in the area for over thirty years. They truly know their way around seafood!
