Where are the best family restaurants in Gulf Shores?  Well, you've come to the right place. Our Relax on the Beach Vacation Rentals team is very family oriented and we all love to eat well. We polled our staff and got some great recommendations.  Here's where we love to eat and you will, too.

Aji Sai

If you're looking for a sushu fix, this is the place to go.  Relax on the Beach gives a two thumbs up to Aji Sai Asian Cuisine in Gulf Shores. They have great lunch specials, too.

Original Oyster House

The menu here features an impressive variety of fresh local seafood, steaks, chicken, salads and pastas.  Simple but flavorful blends of spices and sauces complement fresh catches, gulf oysters and authentic Southern classics. Our team recommends their Gumbo.

Kitty's Kafe

Most of our team loves dogs and our dogs love Kitty's! This is the place for homestyle meals served with true Southern Hospitality.  Pack your wags and enjoy dining alfresco.  Your patronage helps support Kitty's programs for pet adoptions, pet rescues, pet foster and pet transports. Doesn't everyone follow their dog's recommendations for great food?

Cafe Beignet

This is about as close as you can get to Cafe du Monde in New Orleans. Everything is hot and amazing and fresh.

 Behind The Pines

This little place behind the gas station out Fort Morgan Road is a real hidden gem.  We love their great home cooking and friendly service.  Do you really think you can resist a Nookie Burger?  We don't think so.

Sassy Bass Amazing Grill

This one goes without saying.  One thing we like to do is to call and order breakfast, go pick it up and then eat it on the porch of a beach house. How 'bout some eggs sunny side up with your beach sunrise?


The experience here can be summed up in four words.  Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding! This is a place where fun people enjoy working and there's lots to keep kids entertained, too.

Brick & Spoon

We all love this great breakfast and lunch experience.  They feature a great brunch with a unique take on traditional brunch items.

Bill's By The Beach

You'll never have a bad meal here and we go just to admire the work of art known as their Loaded Bloody Mary.  Well, we go to enjoy drinking their Loaded Bloody Marys, but it just sounds nicer to say we enjoy them as a work of art, too.

Bahama Bob's

No worries.  They have plenty of napkins, so go ahead and order the burger with pineapple on it.  So you may be wearing part of it by the time you're done.  We've all been there and it's so worth it. The fried pickles round out an excellent beach meal, too.

The Beach Club

When your taste buds require something swanky, prepare yourself for the Sunday Brunch and then load up.

Pirate's Cove

When you're out on your boat and ready for fun, dock at this famous hole in the water and let your dogs and kids run loose.  Adults in your group must order a round of Bush Whackers!


Keep it simple and extra good.  Our friends here will steam your fresh shrimp for you so you can enjoy eating them on the balcony of your Relax on the Beach vacation rental.

Cobalt The Restaurant

Our team loves the casual atmosphere with waterfront dining, live music and superior service.


This fine dining favorite serves fresh and eclectic food with a wide range of dining.  They specialize in chef inspired ingredients, hand-cut steaks, local seafood, pastas and sushi.

Sea 'n Suds

Sometimes, the view is just as appetizing as the food and that's why our team loves it here. Their outdoor seating is especially fun for groups and kids.

These are just some of our favorite and best family restaurants in Gulf Shores.  We could go on and on, but just talking about it has made us hungry.  We'll go out and discover another great dining experience for you and report back.  Don't just read about it here. Reserve a beautiful beach house, cottage or condo right on our website and bring a hearty appetite for delicious, fresh food and a great place to relax on the beach.  You'll save when you book direct with us as we have no booking fees.
