The soft, sugar-white sands and warm turquoise gulf waters of Alabama beaches make up a relaxing oasis. As you step out onto the pillows of white sand beneath your feet, you can instantly feel the salty sea breeze brush against your skin, hear the soothing crash of the waves upon the shore and see the wide open skies above you. Within seconds, you’re transported to a world that you will never want to leave. Add in seafood straight from the Gulf, panoramic views and plenty of fun family activities, and you might find yourself planning your next trip here before the current one is even over.
Waterfront Dining on the Gulf
When the view is as important as the dish, you don’t want to miss these four spots for your next waterfront dining experience on Alabama’s beautiful coast.
If there’s ever a wait, it’s worth it. Kids can walk along the dock enjoying the view while parents peruse the menu for the catch of the day. Fisher’s has two kitchens and dining rooms, Upstairs and Dockside. For a romantic evening, guests can enjoy Fisher’s Upstairs, which opens at 5 PM daily and is upscale yet comfortable. For a more relaxed atmosphere and midday meal, grab a seat in the Dockside dining area, open 11 AM – 9 PM daily. More than just seafood, Fisher’s offers an incredible menu with burgers, chicken with Alabama white BBQ sauce, a po’ boy worth writing home about and classic boiled peanuts to whet your appetite.
Known for its happy hour, Cobalt offers reasonable dining with views of the water from every single table in the restaurant regardless of whether you’re sitting in the outdoor or indoor dining room. From 3 – 5 PM each day, specials on draft beer and wine are offered with appetizers like their Cobalt Caviar, which is a blend of black beans, edamame, corn, red onion, Roma tomatoes and cilantro tossed in a light vinaigrette and served with corn tortilla chips. For those who love a kick, try the Firecracker...
