Dority’s in Dauphin Island
Dority’s in Dauphin Island is one of the best-kept secrets around. Everything from their atmosphere down to the food is terrific. From the second you walk through Dority’s doors, you’ll feel right at home. Toward the end of the week, Dority’s Dauphin Island also often has live entertainment. Some of their past performers include The Red Clay Strays, River Dan, and Rock Bottom. Visit Dority’s Facebook Page to see their upcoming scheduled events.
If you’re looking to enjoy some Dauphin Island food on a patio with an ocean view, check out JT’s Sunset Grill. Their menu offers classic dishes such as raw oysters, fried white fish, stuffed crabs, and royal red shrimp. But their seafood platter of shrimp, oysters, and an eight-ounce piece of fish is the star of the menu. If you tremble by the idea of Seafood, no worries. JT’s Grill also serves hand-made burgers and salads. And better yet, sunsets are served daily at JT’s Grill.
Pirate’s Bar and Grill Restaurant?
No Dauphin Island vacation is complete without a trip to Pirate’s Bar and Grill (Pirate Restaurant for short.) Pirate Restaurant serves authentic southern food in a laid back atmosphere, so leave your cocktail attire at home! Pirate Restaurant’s menu features an impressive oyster dinner, crab cakes, grilled mahi-mahi, and many surf & turf dishes. Pirate Restaurant also boasts a weekly special, such as Flounder Pontchartrain. Finish off your Pirate Restaurant visit with The Original Dauphin Island Bushwacker. This frozen, adult beverage is a blend of ice cream, multiple types of rum, chocolate, another splash of rum, whipped cream, and a cherry. They’re dangerously delicious.
Personally, when I want a great meal (without much effort on my part!), I often pull up to Reel Deal BBQ and Seafood and get the Fried Shrimp meal or head down to Miguel’s Beach’N Baja to get their Grilled Mahi Mahi Tacos. Both of these restaurants are simple affairs with ordering through a window and eating on the deck or on the go. The staff are wonderful and the food is always fresh and fantastic. Lastly, I can’t help but think of breakfast at Lighthouse Bakery, where you can always count on fresh baked pastries and great coffee!
