You didn’t honestly think that you were not going to get food posts from Mobile right? I mean on the Gulf = awesome sea food. So awesome that we did it twice.
We were searching for some great stuff from the minute we left Birmingham. B and I. We love being near the beach; any where that smells of salt air and where we can walk in sand is pretty much our heaven. I guess you could say our dream retirement home will be on the Gulf. I mean, nothing prettier than the water and sand of the Alabama Gulf Shore. One of the things that I would have missed moving to Austin would have been being only four hours from that amazingness.
Good with the bad though.
So of course, we consulted our best friend Yelp! and he told us about this great place, Felix’s Fish Camp. And it was definitely all those amazing reviews it had and more.
|One icky think about this place; Bloody Mary was no good. Too much pickle juice and citrus. Not to even mention the name of it was “Red Tide.” Just not very good at all. I made B finish mine.|
|B had the crabcakes over fried green tomatoes with fritters and succotash.|
|I had the soft shell crab panini. So delicious.|
After this we headed to check in to the hotel. We had brought flasks (those call out things take forever!), and decided we needed some mixers and a case of beer. We walked to the convenience store next to the hotel and they were charging $23 for a 12- pack of Mich Ultra. Um, no. So we got in the car and headed to a CVS. That we’re both pretty sure almost got robbed while we were there.
Plus their credit card machine didn’t work. Again, thanks to my handy dandy hubs, he had cash and all was well. We were just glad to get out of there. Before it almost got robbed again.
