Coastal Gourmet

Dining and Drinking at the Edge of the Continent

(page 3 of 5)

Orange Beach, Ala.

Practically brand-spanking new, this upscale destination boasts fine dining, nightlife, plenty of recreation activities and close proximity to New Orleans, both in driving distance and time spent on Interstate 10. Plenty of white sandy beaches that, despite BP’s best attempts, are still pristine and beautiful.


Want proof times have changed in South Alabama? How about a restaurant that “blends culinary elements from two or more spatially distinct cultures transcending conventional geographical and historical boundaries?” The correct answer is Pacific Rim Fusion. It is an Oyster Rockefeller Roll and Hawaiian Curry coming together in a place no one expected this to happen.

Ginny Lane Bar & Grill

Gulf Coast cuisine with a dash of Southern Cooking tossed in, in an excellent location with a small but certainly diverse menu, good luncheon specials, oh, and cheese muffins, which they sell by the dozen in case you crave these later. (Hint: you will.)

4780 Wharf Parkway, (251) 224-6500, GinnyLaneBarGrill.com

Bravo Tacos

Fresh is the trademark here and they live it every day. There is guacamole like your mama used to make, assuming your mama was from the Yucatan. Tacos include fish, pork carnitas, chorizo, chicken, steak and al pastor. Cold beer but no margaritas. Maybe soon.

4575 Orange Beach Blvd., Suite 6, (251) 981-8226, BravoTacos.net

The Keg Lounge & Grill

Bit out of the way, smoky, not the cleanest place you will encounter. But the burgers and steak sandwiches are top-notch. Cold beer, for sure. (By the way, with a name like The Keg, maybe your 11-year-old should eat someplace else.)

26796 Canal Road, (251) 981-9462
