Words by Ashley Locke

Everyone knows you will find the freshest seafood the world has to offer in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. In fact, that’s one of the reasons so many people love to visit the beach! There are so many mouth-watering options. With more than 200 restaurants in the area, it can be hard to narrow down where you want to eat. We pulled together a list of three restaurants you can’t miss!


If you want good food, good vibes, and good times, Lulu’s is the place to be. The family-friendly spot has a play area for kids, including a ropes course. Even waiting for a table is fun at Lulu’s—with the sand in your toes and a drink in your hand, you’ll feel like you haven’t left the beach. The menu has something for everyone. Delicious peel and eat shrimp, the crowd favorite crab melt, or the savory fried green tomato BLT will be sure to please. Don’t forget to stop by the shop on your way out!

Pink Pony Club

Pink Pony Club has been a Gulf Shores staple for over 50 years, and it’s easy to see why! Located directly on the beach, their website has a countdown timer each day, so you never miss a sunset. Come for lunch or dinner—the gumbo, shrimp, and oysters are people pleasers—but stay for the nightlife! Frosted drinks and live music make it the best party on the beach—and if you’re feeling extra fun you can sign up for karaoke!

OSO at Bear Point Harbor

Fresh food, live music, and sunset views on the water—what more could you ask for? When you dine at OSO, the outside world melts away. You can enjoy fresh seafood, an OSO Hatch Chili Burger, Crawfish Etouffee, or a Blackened Fish Burrito while jamming out to the best local and touring bands. Spend the evening in the dining room, on the outside deck, or at the tiki bar. You’ll never want to leave!
