Fairhope is the perfect small town for a day spent lingering. Flowers bloom in planters on the street corners and neatness is a must! There are many good restaurants and small cafes mixed in with the numerous gift shops, art galleries and antique shops.
Fairhope has the air of an Old World Village
on the Shore of Mobile Bay. You have to love it!

Address: Downtown area is small with plenty of parking
This is a neat Italian Restaurant tucked away in Fairhope's downtown. It's easy to find because the town is small. We have eaten at Gambino's twice during visits to Fairhope. The food is excellent. It seems to be a place that the locals enjoy, and there were always families eating there as well. You might have a wait!

Brandon's is by far my favorite restaurant. Locally owned, it is a little pricey, dishes from about $18.00 and up, (from the dinner menu). Prices are more average for lunches and just as tasty.
Brandon's is a quite restaurant, with a laid back approach. The mood is soothing as well as the lighting and music. Candlelit tables that are crisp clean linen draped , beckon you to cozy around them. The staff is warm and welcoming, but it is the food that keeps you coming back for more.
Favorite Dish: My favorite dish by far is the "crab-stuffed shrimp with sauted green beans and mashed sweet potatos." If you top this dish off with your favorite accompanying wine, simply unbelievable! Don't forget dessert. Their vanilla bean creme brulee can't be beat.
I do have to expand my food choices once in a while, though. The Filet mignon is to die for, as well as pretty much everything else on the menu.

McSharry's is a true Irish pub, owned and operated by Ronan McSharry (he's the busy guy with the accent.....). Plenty of Guinness and everything else you would want in an Irish Pub including a short but nice menu of wraps, salads, dips, etc. and the occasional Irish stew or shepherd's pie. Nice outside deck. Very popular with the locals, always a fun crowd.
Dress Code: Casual

Mateers is THE place with locals and any tourists who become aware of it. Huge martinis, great wine/beer list and some of the best food on the Eastern Shore. Live piano nightly. The owners and staff are so friendly that after one visit, you are part of the family!
Dress Code: Mainly casual, though you will see lots of tuxes and gowns during Mardi Gras.

Enjoy the roses at the Pier in Fairhope ! Head down the hill from downtown Fairhope to the Pier that extends 1/4 mile into Mobile Bay. The circular parking lot center is full of roses. If you enjoy seeing and smelling roses, this is something to see.
