Find decadent dishes to enjoy in a laid back, resort atmosphere at Coast Restaurant & Sushi Bar. Get a taste of the Alabama Gulf Coast with the Gulf Coast Platter, a variety of seafood including crab cakes, shrimp, catch of the day, and U-10 oysters, fried or bronzed. Or, if you seafood isn’t your culinary jam, try the Beef Tenderloin Filet, Certified American Beef grilled to perfection with basil and garlic roasted tomatoes and house-recipe steak butter. If you’d like to enjoy your meal with a beautiful Gulf view, ask the hostess for a table on the veranda.
