I saw this topic covered a few months ago, but I can't find the post. I was wondering what are the locals favorite places to eat in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach/Foley area? Include all types of restaurants.

Breakfast - HAZELS on 59.

Not the one on the main strip. (Not even sure if they do the breakfast bar.)

Also what other options are you looking for. There are some good Chinese resturants on 59 by the outlet mall also. There are all about the same but some just have better or fresher sushi then the others.

Eeew. You have issues.:poke

I like Papa Roco's down by the beach. Dirty, warm beer, great atmosphere.

Live Bait at The Wharf is great for suchi, steaks and about anything else as well.

Man after reading the other responses I realizedI forgot a bunch.

Down south on CR-10 is awesome BBQ with big portions and a great sauce.

Lamberts is good but I got food poisoning the first time I ate there and have been reluctant to go there since. I'll give it a shot again one day.

Cobalts is awesome but pricey

It's just not my style. I've only eaten there once and was not impressed.

Hell, if you like it, that's all that matters. My favorite spot in Pensacola is a hot dog joint so ...

The original Lamberts was started in Sikeston, MO if you consider that "Southern" cooking. It is plain table fare and is better than many of the local bluecollar diners where I have eaten. I have eaten at all 3 of the Lamberts restaurants and the one in Foley is about the worst of the three, all things considered. The one in Sikeston rocks and the one in Springfield, MO is pretty good. I thought the prices were cheap compared to most restaurants down here and the large sized portions they dish out at Lamberts.



I had friends down for a week's vacation and they stayed at La Hacienda condo in OB. The had seafood at the Hazel's on the main drag there and said it was probably the worst seafood they have eaten ever!! I haven't been there but I took them to Doc's Seafood up North of OB and they raved about the food there!! they wanted shrimp and I suggested that they get the Royal Reds instead of the regular Gulf shrimp and they ate themselves silly on those shrimp! They were good but they didn't come close to the steamed Royal Reds at Old Bay Steamer on Okaloosa Island.

Tacky Jacks has good atmosphere but I think the food there has gone downhill so bad its not worth eating.



'F'iz you, I'd try the follerin'



Doc's = best for local easy going food IMO by far

P. Cove = cheeseburger and fries

Guy Harvey Grill = more upscale and pricey, got a mahi plate that is awesome

Grazie = pretty good Italian

The Keg = great hamburger but the place is disgusting.

Tin Top = all around good food



If you want to drive a bit, the Original Point over in Florida on Innerarity Point is killer. Its about 45 mins from OB.

Lambert's is usually a must when we hit that area. The line says a lot. Don't go any weekend during the summer or any three day weekend. Dang tourist. Hazel's isn't to bad either.

Thanks Guys

I know all about Hazels breakfast and the Original Oyster House. I appreciate all the other suggestions. Sushi at The Warf sounds great. Keep the suggestions coming. Where's Cosmos?
