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.

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...
