Our Favorite Oyster Restaurants on the Gulf Coast!


Almost every trip to the Gulf Coast includes two things - spending the day at the beach & eating yummy seafood! Don't you just love eating all the yummy seafood the Gulf has to offer?! One of the fan-favorite foods to eating while on a Gulf Coast vacation is none other than oysters! Whether you enjoy them raw on crackers or chargrilled in a variety of ways, be sure to visit one of these Alabama Gulf Coast hot spots for your oyster fix! 

1. Cobalt the Restaurant

Cobalt the Restaurant in Orange Beach is the pinnacle of fine dining on the island. Every seat throughout the dining room has a waterfront view of the bay. Whether you desire oysters, seafood, steaks, custom pizzas or one of the Chef’s fantastic specials, Cobalt has a truly encompassing menu. The oyster menu is offered in a half dozen and a dozen and includes everything from raw oysters to oysters rockafeller and everything in between.

2. Fisher's at Orange Beach Marina

Fisher's at Orange Beach Marina is a truly unique fine dining experience. For a casual dining experience, Fisher's Dockside provides an original island menu packed full of delicious seafood recipes, where everyone in the family can dine together indoors, outdoors or in the courtyard. For a more upscale occasion, try Fisher's Upstairs, where Chef Bill Briand's dishes combine the best of local ingredients with a hint of Louisiana heritage. Whether you choose to eat upstairs or downstairs, there are plenty of yummy oysters on the menu to choose from!

3. Fin & Fork

The best Orange Beach restaurant for fresh Gulf seafood served in a family-friendly atmosphere, Fin & Fork serves more than just seafood. They are proud to be one of the few Orange Beach restaurants with a true scratch kitchen. With truly the best tasting oysters that never disappoint, you'll be sure to leave Fin & Fork with a smile and a full belly.  

4. The Gulf

The Gulf is a casual yet chic seaside hideaway. Where the sun, sand and lush beachside setting complement the tasty food, beverages and friendly casual service. Recline with your toes in the sand, have a seat at the bar or at a communal table, or meander about, and enjoy the magical vibes, views and tunes. They are passionately committed to offering the freshest, seasonal menus of locally focused ingredients. While oysters aren't the main attraction at The Gulf, the raw oysters offered there are the perfect appetizer to enjoy while lounging by the water.

5. Big Mike's Steakhouse 

Big Mike's Steakhouse was awarded the prestigious honor of "Best Steak in Alabama" by the Alabama Cattlemen Association. They proudly serve Certified Angus Beef that is aged 28 days and then hand cut. Each steak is marinated and seasoned with Big Mike's Seven Spice Blend, wood fire grilled to your specification and topped with our garlic herb butter. While they are obviously known for their steaks, Big Mike's offers oysters that could compete with the best of seafood restaurants on the Gulf.

So what are you waiting for? Get on down here to the Gulf Coast - you’ve got oysters to eat! We have a huge selection of beach homes and condos to pick from to make your stay the best vacation you could dream of.
