Lucy B Goode, Gulf Shores' newest restaurant, allows diners to share small plates in an upscale sett

The recently opened Lucy B Goode makes it easy for even the largest groups to have a fun dining experience. With innovative recipes and plates designed for sharing, it's ideal for groups vacationing in Gulf Shores.

Travelers who make their way to Gulf Shores will find both casual, family-style dining establishments and fine dining in a casual setting. At Lucy B Goode, diners staying at Gulf Shores vacation rentals will be able to sample the very best of local cuisine while enjoying their trips. 

A new kind of dining

Lucy B Goode offers guests the ability to order
multiple plates for a table to share. The popular
"small plates" style is designed to be ideal for
sharing. Whether visitors from Gulf Shores rentals
want to try some crab cakes or pickled shrimp
ceviche, they can easily select the creations that
get their mouths watering and plan how they want
to swap bites. 

"I'm so excited to see Lucy B Goode come to
fruition - it truly is a dream come true," owner Lucy Buffett told Gulf Coast News Today. "We're serving upscale casual Southern fare and Gulf Coast cuisine in a small plates format." 

Although the new eatery has an elegant feel, it stops short of becoming a traditional fine dining establishment, making it perfect for those travelers who want to enjoy a night out on the town without concerns about attire or menu options for the young ones in the group. 

Fresh taste and local ingredients

At the heart of Lucy B Goode is a commitment to fresh, locally sourced ingredients that truly emulate the Southern style of cooking. Each dish strives to fuse together the coastal nature of the area, Southern home cooking and good old fashioned comfort food. Some of the standouts on the menu include the Mac & Cheese, which is created with creamy gouda cheese made fresh in Alabama, Sticky Sweet Black Bean Pork Ribs and a Buttermilk Fried Chicken Slider served on a homemade biscuit with homemade sweet pickles from locally grown cucumbers. 

"It's simple food cooked just right," chef Randall Baldwin told Gulf Coast News Today. "I let the produce and the proteins speak for themselves. I'm not covering it up with anything." 

Part of the way the establishment emphasizes fresh, simple dishes is by changing the menu weekly or even daily, depending on the ingredients the kitchen has on hand. This ensures that diners are always served dishes showcasing the very best that Gulf Shores, Alabama, has to offer. 

"What looks good in the market that day, that's what we'll be serving," Baldwin told "... The cooks come in daily and ask 'What am I going to cook today?' and that sort of enthusiasm runs through the staff." 

Lucy B Goode will be serving lunch and dinner to patrons seven days a week, and the establishment is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
