Taste New Orleans in a Bowl at Waterfront Places to Eat in Gulf Shores


There’s no shortage of good eats when you travel down Gulf Shores, Alabama. From the freshest crabs, shrimp, crawfish, shellfish, and fish, to appetite-sparking sides like fried tomatoes and clam chowders, you’re bound to get your fill of some of the tastiest dishes the region has to offer.

But there’s one dish that truly embodies Southern cuisine, and that is gumbo. In fact, no places to eat in Gulf Shores will have a menu that doesn’t include this hot and rich bowl of history and culture.

The Basics of Gumbo

It is said that gumbo originated in Southern Louisiana as far back as the 18th century. Some trace it back to the French stew called bouillabaisse, a hearty seafood soup. Others refer to West Africa from which the word “gumbo” was coined, which meant okra in the local language. No matter how it began, gumbo is now one of the most beloved products of Southern cooking.
