Join us at Gulf Shores for Cajun comfort food. Everything on our menu is homemade and fresh. We create our own tartar sauce from our own pickles, blended Cajun spices, salad dressings, and desserts. Our seafood is always fresh and never frozen. We cook it the way you want it at no extra charge. Try our hand-cut fish, hand-battered shrimp, homemade crab cakes, gumbo soups, and fresh ocean fish entrees. Our daily specials will give you all the N’awlins flavors going beyond typical seafood and Cajun restaurants. Our smoke-free environment allows the freshest smells of Creole and Cajun cooking to appease you as soon as you enter the restaurant
THE REST OF THE STORY
Realizing a lifelong dream can be exciting and challenging. My dream was to own a restaurant business that would allow me to build on my passion for people. I spent 28 years in Corporate America developing my business and customer service skills. After a short involvement with a franchise, I felt constrained in presenting a dining experience indicative of the Southern and N’Awlins hospitality that I had come to know. I wanted to make good on a burning desire to create and deliver a dynamic dining experience to every customer. In mid-2005, I began the journey as Gulf Shores Restaurant and Grill with a commitment to serve quality food, with superior service in a smoke-free environment.
The selection of the restaurant’s name, Gulf Shores Restaurant and Grill, was based on the great recipes, foods, families, and friends found in that area. Many of you know it from experience….a simple life, where great food and friends meet, greet and relish the next opportunity to do it all again. I hope that you will discover that the best food doesn’t have to come from chefs in fancy restaurants, but from families in local towns with recipes that date back centuries. Simple recipes that allow the true nature of freshly prepared, hand-battered, and hand-cut seafood to come through.
If you are looking for a place to go and want to experience great home cooking with soups, desserts, seafood, and Cajun/Creole meals prepared fresh, then my restaurant is your everyday Gulf Coast cuisine place. We are your local, family fishing village where people live well, share great food, and enjoy the presence of each other.
