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.

Joel's - Trussville, Alabama

I am always surprised when I find a long standing restaurant I've never been to. Earlier this summer I went to Jimmy's, I was rather impressed. I was actually fasting meat, bread and sweets while I was there, which made my choices a little more diminished than any other time. In the midst of fasting, it was definitely still worth the trip. Was it the best, I've ever had? no. But then again this Alabama, and really all we do here is eat and shop so the bar is kind of high. Will I go back? most definitely.
