The topic of golf has been on our minds like crazy lately, and with good reason. The weather has been great, the fairways are looking wonderful and it seems that our friends at the local courses have been working tirelessly to make sure you can get out there and play from sunup to sundown.
One thing that we often overlook when talking about golf, however, is where to eat after a long day in the sun. That is why we have put together a quick list of some of the dishes to grab after a great day out on the course.
1. “Cheeseburger in Paradise” from LuLu’s at Homeport Marina.
Not only is this post-game feast named after Lucy Buffett’s brother, Jimmy’s, beach hit, but it has her own special twist. Made of fresh, hand pattied, local ground beef and topped with your choice seamingly endless add-ons, it’s no wonder why this burger is famous. Pair this big guy with a side of friend green tomatoes and a drink and watch the sun go down over the beautiful Homeport Marina - you will find yourself having a perfect southern finish to the day.
2. “Seared Ahi Tuna Salad” from Cosmo’s Restaurant & Bar.
If only every salad in the world could be topped with a perfectly seasoned, sesame encrusted Ahi Tuna steak, piles of blue cheese crumbles and dried cranberries. Luckily for you, Cosmo’s has mastered the art of this dish, which can be found on both their lunch and dinner menus. Start the meal off with a cup of Duck and Andouille Sausage Gumbo, and you are sure to leave happy one happy golfer.
3. “Gulf Shrimp Sliders” from West Beach Grille.
Being able to say that you are the only restaurant in Gulf Shores nestled perfectly between the beach and little lagoon is pretty awesome. Being able to say that your food ROCKS is even better. Famous for their mini-burgers and wings, it might be hard to venture out to the “Gulf Shrimp Sliders,” but don’t worry, your taste buds will thank you later. This seafood take on a classic diner-style favorite is the perfect compliment to the ocean sounds enjoyed from their large patio area.
Be sure to grab your buddies and head to one of these great area restaurants to cap off the day. It will be one of the only parts of the trip you will be happy is above-par.
