Fisher's - Dockside - Orange Beach, AL

2 dining experiences. I'm a fan of them both!

When I really begin to think of places that I would indoctrinate into tradition Fisher's would be one of those places. Actually I could probably build an entire resort out of their entire set up. What I love about Fisher's is that they offer 2 unique dining experiences. You can sit dockside, and enjoy the breeze outside, and check out all of the yachts that are docked or you can sit upstairs in the dining room for a multi course high star meal. Both meals are exceptional, and both experiences are worth writing home about (as you see I am lol). 

From the frozen palmer to the oysters, to the awesome dishes I had Fisher's is one of those places I could come for a night out with friends, a date night or just a quite night alone. After dinner you can take a casual stroll up the dock and really enjoy yourself. This place was completly up my alley. 

Food: Flavorful

Ambiance: Refreshing

Pros: Location is quaint yet on the water

Cons: The summer in Alabama tends to be sticky, so eating outside isn't always delightful, if you've spent your day sweaty.

Verdict: I'll be back

When I return to the gulf coast with a special someone, I'll be sure to review the dining room.

The Hangout, Orange Beach, AL

If there were place that summed up everything you think about when you go to the beach as a college student the Hangout is probably as close as you're going to get in the State of Alabama. Granted I've never swung through orange beach during Spring break season, but if I had to guess, it is probably the spot to be. From hourly foam parties, to drinks that don't drink specials, to awesome seafood, to the wonderful views of the gulf and the cleanest beach I've seen in the states, the Hangout is right up there. 

The burgers are just what you need after sitting in the hot sun. the slushies and daquiries help wash down all of the beach football you've been playing (one of my favorite pastimes). Oh the Po Boys... the Po Boys take the cake for me. I have to be honest, Po-Boys for me a staple in my diet (probably why the alkaline diet has never quite taken to me lol). They fry them perfectly to golden perfection, and it may have been because I was dunked from the sun, but he several times I have eaten at the Hangout I have been a fan of the Po-Boy. 

A side from the great food, the Hangout is just a great environment for fun and sun, and relaxation. its not one of those places you go if you're uptight and not looking for a good. On the flip side of things, its also no so wild that you can't bring the kids. 

Pros: Good Food. Fun Environment. 

Unfavorables: Depending where you sit, it can be hot, but sit inside you'll probably be ok.

Verdict: Yea I'll be back!

Baye's - Orange Beach, AL

I was pleasantly surprised with Baye's. if you like seafood, this a place worth checking out. They specialize in oysters and I am certainky a fan. Our server was on top of her game the entire night, inspight of the fact that she was missing her family reunion. 

One of the things that sets them apart instantly is that its right there at the Wharf, and so, you are likely to dine outside at one of the yacht clubs. Beautiful views paired gourmet southern food, and you have just won my heart. Instead of dinner rolls they bring the table pork skins, and if you're not from the south you probably can't sense my excitement, but yes SKINS!!! 

If the food had not have been good, the ambiance would have made up for it. Baye's is my kind of spot. I would rank the food slightly above average, but the amibiance was fun but relaxed.
