Take it easy at The Hangout

With all the playing in the gulf, building sandcastles and soaking up the sun you're bound to do on your vacation, you'll probably get a little hungry. At The Hangout, you and your entire family can eat your fill without having to spend a minute away from the gorgeous beaches.

Take it easy at The Hangout

Looking for a place to get a bite to eat in Gulf Shores? You'll have dozens of restaurants to choose from, but one that stands out is The Hangout, which is located right at the main public beach. This casual dining spot is perfect for families and thankfully has plenty of outdoor seating so you can continue basking in the beautiful sunlight while munching on grilled shrimp and oysters.

Entertain the kids in the play area

If you're bringing your kids along for your vacation
at a Gulf Shores area beach house or condo, you
can rest assured they won't get bored at The Hangout.
A designated play area was built just for kids to climb sand mountains and build sandcastles, so while you take your time finishing your delicious meal, you can watch them entertain themselves or even join
in the fun yourself!

Listen to live music at the bar

Adults can mingle with others at the outdoor bar while sipping cocktails and listening to music. Some of the acts who have performed at The Hangout include the Foxy Iguanas, Adam Holt and Wes Bayliss. Be sure to order a Bushwacker or Hurricane - two staple drinks along Alabama's Gulf Coast. Don't forget to pick up souvenirs for yourself and everyone back home - their large gift shop is an attraction itself!

Casual dining done right

You don't have to worry about changing into fancy clothes when you decide to have a meal at The Hangout, which serves up comfort foods like cold-cut sandwiches and hamburgers. Of course, when you come to the coastal area, you'll probably expect a wide array of seafood options, and The Hangout definitely does not disappoint. Their menu features a long list of Seafood Towers, piled high with whatever's in season, from baked and stuffed oysters and snow crab to Gulf Coast shrimp and clam platters. You can even try a shrimp or lobster corn dog!

Bring your family during the day and return with the grown-ups for the late-night action. Each offers its own uniquely delicious experience.
