Sunliner Diner

In the heart of Gulf Shores, Alabama, you can step back in time to the 1950s, when jukeboxes were popular, along with the Ford Fairlane, milkshakes, and American hamburgers. We stopped by ourselves to see a cool place. We found black and white checkered boarded floors, a diner-type bar, and colorful décor. The movie Grease was playing on the back wall, the employees were singing along to the 1950’s beats while dressed in their period uniforms, and some lucky customers were dining inside of an old classic car.

The menus looked like small versions of an old newspaper with the local beach news. Yes, you can even toss a quarter into the old jukebox and sing along if you like. How can you resist this fun atmosphere? They serve delicious waffles and breakfast all day and have many items to choose from. Lunch is on the menu as well, if you prefer.

Marty and I decided to choose from the lunch menu. She had the Ultimate BLT, which included thick applewood bacon strips, lettuce, and tomato on butter-griddled Texas toast, and I had the Grilled Chicken Sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and pickle stacked on the buttered brioche bun. We substituted a side salad for the French fries for a better health option.

The Sunliner Diner is located at 100 E. 2nd Ave. in Gulf Shores, AL. If you are interested to learn more about Orange Beach and Gulf Shores activities, you can follow our blog.
