Favorite Restaurants in Orange Beach/ Gulf Shores Alabama

COSMOS on Canal Road; http://www.cosmosrestaurantandbar.com/ We have been eating here for years and the food is always consistently excellent. The daily specials are always my first choice. I ordered the mahi mahi fish sandwich, and make sure you get risotto as your side dish- it melts in your mouth!   PS- The breads are incredible! 

Cosmo's Restaurant and Bar

Orange Beach, AL 36561

DESOTOS; http://www.desotosseafoodkitchen.com/ Go for lunch and make sure you order the corn fritters.  I have never had a bad entrée here!  This is one of our all time favorites and we make sure to go there every time we are in town.  They also have a coloring contest for the kids- a few weeks later your child will get a letter recognizing that they won the coloring contest and the next time the kids come in their entrees are free.  My daughter fell for this her entire life- we finally told her when she was 12 that they sent it to all of the kids!  That will always be a fond memory- She loved opening up the mail and then finding out that she won the contest!

LULU'S; http://www.lulusathomeport.com/index-live.php Great spot for kids, wonderful atmosphere- the food is also excellent!  They play all of Jimmy Buffet's music and it is very up beat.  The history behind the place is that Mr. Buffet bought the place for his sister Lulu...  and he can even be spotted in there every once in a while.

THE CRAB TRAP; http://www.crabtrapdestin.com/ The food doesn't get much better than this - also has a wonderful playground for kids.  This one is actually in Pensacola, Florida but there is one in Orange Beach too.  The service is fast and friendly.

THE SHRIMP BASKET; http://shrimpbasket.com/ We had the Trigger sandwich- can't usually find this on many menus- this is a must!!!  Don't be overwhelmed by the extensive menu- have an idea of what you would like to eat before going in because they have everything- I usually stick to the sandwiches- no reason other than I just like them!

I actually just got back from vacation down there;)  But we go 2-3 times a year and a lot of people ask me where to go while they vacation in Gulf Shores/ Orange Beach.  So I thought I could organize the information in a blog and send them there!  Makes it easier on everybody!
