After a long hiking trek or a busy day of running errands, what better way wind down in the evening than to indulge in a truly unique and delicious dining experience? If you're looking for the perfect place to relax your feet and grab something to eat, Alabama bar, The Gulf, is where it’s at. With views of Perdido Pass, savory seafood, and — arguably the coolest part — a building crafted from recycled shipping containers, this seaside nook is bound to be your favorite future summer night hang out.
With locations in both Orange Beach and Okaloosa Island, you can catch the freshest local ingredients and dreamy seaside views in both the Sunshine State and the Heart of Dixie.
They also source from regional farms for their meat and produce, too.
But sustainability isn’t just a vibe for The Gulf, it's a way of life and the embodiment of the entire establishment. The restaurant structure is even made from recycled, reclaimed, and salvaged shipping containers and other materials to help reduce their carbon footprint.
It has an irresistible beachy aesthetic and if you can’t get enough, they also have a store shop with clothing, accessories, and home décor to bring that vibe home with you.
The picturesque place is also a wedding hotspot, but you can book any kind of event at The Gulf for a casual seaside shindig.
Local oysters, seasonal fish, and the rotating farm to table menu will ensure you’re getting only the freshest food. Wash it all down with a sweet cocktail, a tangy mojito topped with berries, or even just a refreshing lemonade and you've found foodie paradise.
Choose to dine at the bar or on the rooftop decks, or venture out to for an oceanfront meal with a view and sit on the beach lounges and picnic tables.
Sustainable business practices, a sea of string lights, the setting sun, and waves lapping at the shore as you sink your toes into the sand with a cocktail in hand — what more could you ask for?
