4 Categories for the Best Seafood in Orange Beach

A little bit of class. 

This category is for those of you looking for an elevated dining experience and creative, chef-led menus. At these restaurants, you will often find unique menu items and fusions of southern and international flavors. While this category is ever growing in lower Alabama, our favorites are Playa, Cobalt, Cosmos and Big Fish.


Good, old-fashioned fried seafood. 

If you are looking for a traditional Alabama seafood meal, there are a few restaurants that stand above the rest. There’s always a wait for these favorites, Doc’s Seafood in Orange Beach and The Original Oyster House in Gulf Shores. Our other picks are Bahama Bob’s, and The Flying Harpoon.


Something different.

If you want something unique, there are other non-traditional ways to enjoy our local seafood. The Royal Oyster has an extensive raw and grilled oyster bar. Master Joe’s is one of the best places in the area to get amazing sushi. Or, for a little bit of cajun cuisine, try the well-loved Louisiana Lagniappe.


Prepare your own.

If you are hoping to use some of your own culinary prowess, there are a few good fish markets in the area too. Try Blalock Market or Latrigues for fresh local seafood that you can take home and cook yourself!
