Where to EAT?
Not related to pictures, but just as important, even more so to the dads.
Your all dressed and starving after those pictures. Lets go EAT!!!
Here are my recommendations for dinner in no particular order
Cosmos – Nice patio with live music and good food
Cobalt – Somewhat upscale great place for a sunset dinner with great food
Fishers – Upscale but worth it
Flippers – If you need a break from the beach and would like to watch a sunset with sailboats. The food is good and reasonably priced to boot.
The Gulf – One of my favorite placed to grab a cold drink and some fantastic food and watch the ships come in.
Ships Harbor Grill – On the upscale side but still family. You can have a drink at the TIKI bar while waiting.
Voyagers – A fine dining experience. Date night for mom and dad. (I would get a sitter)
Desotos Seafood kitchen – The best lunch in town, hands down. Affordable lunch with blue plate specials. Be sure to try the Flounder and the homemade MacNcheese.
Bahama Bobs – My personal favorite. If you want to try the best burger on the Gulf of Mexico, you should definitely check them out. For those wanting seafood don’t worry they have that to. It is on the Beach and stays packed so try to go during non peak times of day.
Blond Johns Surf Shop – Best kept secret in Gulf Shores. Go upstairs and order a Soul Bowl. It is healthy and good frozen snack. it consist of ground up Acai berries with fresh fruit, granola, and honey on top. The kids will think it is ice cream, but you know its healthy.
The Hang Out – A fun nigh out for the whole family. It will be crowed but it is designed to keep everyone entertained. There are games, live entertainment, bubble maker, shops, photo ops and just great atmosphere.
If you have access to a boat or don’t mind a short drive check out
Pirates Cove – This is a local hangout both people and dogs (not kidding about the dogs). You can come by boat or car. Try out the cheeseburger in paradise and have a Bushwacker. Bring a swim suit for the kids. They can swim or jump of the dock while you are there.
Sunset Grill – My favorite sunset eatery. Here you will find casual dining on the water and experience one of the best sunsets in the area. Be sure to try the Grouper Poboy.
Flora Bama Yacht club – Get there by boat or by car. It is across from the FloraBama but totally different. The food and drinks are better and it has more of a family atmosphere. You can sit back and relax and enjoy a cold beverage and watch some live music with lunch or dinner.
If you are lucky enough to have a night out just the adults you must head down to the Fora Bama. It is hot, sticky and dirty, and very full, but you will love. You can’t come that close and not visit. Kenny Chesney is not wrong 🙂
