For many of our visitors (and locals, too!) the trip down to the beach is filled with visions of seafood: shrimp skewers, perfectly prepared tuna, and other succulent dishes filled with the goodness of the Gulf.
But sometimes, well… you just want a perfectly cooked steak (or a taco… or some wings!)
Things get really interesting when you travel with friends and family, and everyone has a different idea about what their ideal meal is. After all, when you’re on vacation, you want to live a little and dine on some delicacy that wouldn’t ordinarily be available (or maybe just not on your diet.)
When your children want chicken, your sister doesn’t eat fish and you are so ready to taste some amazing fresh seafood, don’t worry. We’ve got news that will make your day: Orange Beach is home to an incredible cluster of outstanding eateries that offer something for every taste bud!
If you’re looking for the highest-quality beef in a gorgeous atmosphere (a true night-on-the-town meal), dine in at Carver’s Steakhouse. The restaurant’s steaks and chops — from the center-cut sirloin to the 20-oz. porterhouse — are impeccably prepared to your exact specifications. Try the New York strip coated and crusted with black pepper and kosher salt, or indulge in a juicy and tender filet mignon. And if you have people in your party who do love seafood, you’re in luck! Carver’s offers everything from barbecued chicken and seared ahi tuna to cedar-planked salmon and chargrilled shrimp, all prepared to the highest standard.
