If you find yourself hungry and wanting coastal cuisine that’s just a little out of the ordinary for Pleasure Island, why not visit Pappadakis, an authentic Greek restaurant in Orange Beach, Alabama.

Pappadakis, tucked away on Money Bayou Drive just off Canal Road and near The Wharf Entertainment Complex, serves a variety of dishes, including baklava cheesecake, spanakopita and saganaki. Also on the menu are gyros and Greek wines.

Owner Emmanuel Pappadakis moved to Orange Beach several months ago and decided to open the restaurant when he noticed no exotic food options in the area. “I owned a Greek diner in Louisiana four decades ago, so I knew how to do it right.”
