Dustys Oyster Bar
Our favorite place. Always crowded. Go early for dinner or lunch. Best blackened scallops and fried crab claws on the beach. Plus, the best oysters by far and it is the home of the World’s Champion Oyster Shucker. Sit at the shucking bar if there is room.

Jeanie's One Stop Diner
Across from Emerald Beach serves a great breakfast, but expect a waiting line – it’s a small dining area.

Last Great Beach Bar – on east end – excellent grouper sandwich and burger – kids can play on beach. Good live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights (even early).

Sharky’s Restaurant and Beach Bar
Very similar to Schooners. It is right next door to our Sunrise Beach Resort – 1 mile east of Pier Park.

On Hwy 79, 1 block off the beach (on the right going away from beach). One of the owners (Craig) is ex-Bama football player. Great seafood and prime rib.

(great location overlooking Bay) or Captains Table – both on east side of bridge. Both a little pricey but outstanding seafood.
