Felix’s Fish Camp-Spanish Fort, Alabama

If you are looking for a breathtaking view while you dine, then stop by Felix’s Fish Camp Restaurant located on Mobile Bay. Mobile Bay is a shallow inlet of the Gulf of Mexico, lying within the state of Alabama in the Southern United States. Mobile Bay is the fourth-largest estuary in the United States. It is a diverse home to many types of fish, birds, reptiles, and crustaceans. Many swarm the shallow coastline and shore of the bay. Sometimes, it even causes what we call a “Jubilee,” which often draws a large crowd because of the abundance of fresh, easily caught seafood. I used to go there with my dad to watch the sunset when I was younger. At that time, the restaurant was named Pier Four. Still, the location holds many nice memories for me, under the old establishment and now under the newer one. However, Felix’s has been located on the causeway for many years now, still right there on Mobile Bay. It offers a beautiful view of this natural habitat.

It is also a premier choice for fresh Gulf seafood, USDA-certified steak, and breathtaking views of the Mobile Causeway. Incredible entrees paired with outstanding service ensure guests feel like the toast of the town. It is one of my favorite places to dine for lunch, dinner, or special occasions. I encourage you to make a reservation near the windows so you can enjoy the full panoramic views. If you miss out on that, don’t worry; you can still see the view from other tables. If they are busy, try going to the bar for quicker seating. We had a wonderful lunch on this day. For an appetizer, we ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes. Then I ordered a bowl of Gumbo and the Camp Salad along with a side of hush puppies. Dad ordered the crab claws. For dessert, try the CHRISSY, it is an adult drink. It is one of my favorites. Dad ordered the Lemon Ice Box Pie. See photos.

From oysters to the West Indies salad. From red snapper to crab soup. I promise you will enjoy Felix’s Fish Camp, located at 1530 Battleship Parkway in Spanish Fort, Alabama.
