Where to find great seafood dishes by the beach

Bill’s By The Beach, Gulf Shore, Alabama

Bill’s serves up fresh seafood that is tagged so you know exactly where, when, and how your food was caught. They are known for their house-made Bienville sauce that pairs great with their oyster Bienville (fried oysters on gouda and white cheddar crostini and the Bienville sauce on top). If you’re not feeling oysters, try their shrimp that is coated in creole spices that reassure you, you’re in the south.
