    Lighthouse Bakery: Nice Smells and Yummy Looking Displays

    by TooTallFinn24 Updated Apr 8, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There really aren't a lot of places to eat in Dauphin Island in the off season. The Lighthouse Bakery looks more like a house than a bakery but don't be fooled. it really fits in on Dauphin Island. A friendly place that serves both breakfast and lunches for carry out or sit down.

    We came upon this place after having an eat in the room breakfast in Biloxi. Consequently we did not purchase anything just window browsed. The croissants, caramel almond buns,, and something called a sausage waffle looked delicious. Fresh soups were cooking slowly in the background; a french onion and a minestrone.

    Lots of interesting things to look at in the bakery. Some picnic tables on the water are available across the street.

    Bayley's Seafood Restaurant: Bayley's Seafood Restaurant

    by TravellerMel Written May 21, 2013

    We stopped here for dinner after a long day of birding on Dauphin Island. There were many cars in the parking lot, so it seemed like a good bet. This is a family-run restaurant - very "no frills". Meals were served with plastic utensils on paper plates. No big deal though. There is no "ambiance" to speak of. Our server was very friendly, but we waited a long time for our meal, and it was just OK. My husband's burger was cooked to the point of being nearly jerky. I had a bowl of the crab bisque, which was quite tasty, but very small portion for $8. All in all, we left no longer hungry, but we were not impressed.

    I will say, several people I know have eaten there before and they really enjoyed it - they were very surprised by my "meh" review. Perhaps we were there on an off night, or perhaps we should have ordered differently (apparently, Bayley's is known for it's fresh-off-the-boats seafood).

    This is a hometown type bakery that has some of the best food we have ever had on vacation. We ate there every morning and twice at lunch. VERY friendly folks and die for coffee.

    Favorite Dish: Way too many to answer this one.

    The Oar House: Sandwiches to Soups in a nautical setting

    by Baxwrtr Written May 28, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Oar House Restaurant on Alabama's Dauphin Island is where locals go for great food and drinks in a beachside setting. Homemade soups, sandwiches and burgers made by the Oar House's in-house chef are like no other along the upper Gulf Coast. Adult drinks and specialty beers are best enjoyed on the open deck beneath towering palms as the sun sets over the Island's west end.

    Favorite Dish: The homemade tomato basil soup and seafood gumbo were only outdone by the delicious deli sandwiches.

    The Lighthouse Bakery on Dauphin Island was a treat. From the gourmet omeletts and homemade breakfast pastries, to deli-style sandwiches and specialty coffees, this little spot is where locals and tourists come together.

    Favorite Dish: The lump crab omelett is outstanding.

    Dauphin Island is Alabama's Family Beach

    The seafood platter at Barnacle Bill's on Dauphin Island, Alabama was terrific. The plate was piled high with golden shrimp, fresh Gulf fish, sweet scollops and incredible hushpuppies.

    Favorite Dish: The seafood platter done old school Southern style.

    Outside, they advertise "Best Food on the Island" with a lunch special for $5.95. The lunch special was on cards on the table - one meat (choice of pork roast, grilled chicken breast, smoked sausage, fried catfish, chopped sirloin or country fried steak - the latter two with gravy) with three sides (choice of mashed potatoes, green beans, black eyed peas, rice, sauteed corn, turnip greens, red beans, baby limas and cole slaw) But this was too much for either of us to eat for lunch (and maybe even for dinner).

    Favorite Dish: So I ordered a shrimp club (grilled shrimp, bacon & provolone, lettuce and tomato on a grilled hoagie for $8.95) which was excellent and Bob had shrimp & chips (fried shrimp and fries) for $7.05. This was $18.50 before tip.
