Ginny Lane Bar and Grill

It was a beautiful Friday morning, and Marty and I had to head down to Orange Beach for a business trip. The last time we were down there, we visited Villaggio’s Grille, an Italian restaurant located at The Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama. Since we thought that was a fantastic experience on our last visit, we really wanted to give another one of the establishments at The Wharf a try. The last time we learned that Villaggio was part of a family of other restaurants. One of them is called Ginny Lane.

It is a Bar and Grill located right across the street from Villaggio, but with the added feature of the canal and some very lovely yachts! You can dine inside or out. And in case you prefer the bar atmosphere, there are plenty of bar seats to go around and a fun pool table.

We dined inside since it was an unusually windy day. The wooden chairs were comfortable, and the atmosphere was pleasant. There were big-screen TVs to watch a little golf, and our favorite 80’s music was playing in the background. We were happy to be met with a very kind waitress as well. She took great care of us. Looking over the menu, we thought that we really enjoyed the last cheese board we had at Villaggio’s, so we wanted to give it a go again. This one was different, which we were glad to see. It was very yummy still.

For an entrée Marty ordered the Pan Seared Fish with sautéed spinach, saffron rice and lemon beurre blanc. I was craving a good steak and baked potato, so I ordered the 6 oz—New York Strip with Broccolini and the baked potato. We paired a nice bottle of Diora Rosé La Belle Fête with our meal; it was a delightful French Rosé.

For dessert, we took a nice walk around the canal, admired the yachts and the sunshine, then headed down the Wharf strip for a little shopping and a blueberry sprite spritzer, non-alcoholic.

Another fabulous day at The Wharf. Ginny Lane Bar and Grill is located at 4851 Wharf Parkway Suite 106 Orange Beach, Al 36561
