Gulf Shores Alabama

Why eat at Picnic Beach?

We pride ourselves in being a unique casual dining restaurant in the heart of downtown Gulf Shores. We craft our food and menu as carefully as our environment to create a unique, fresh take on family dining in Gulf Shores. Upon walking in, notice our bright green turf, white picnic tables and picnic blankets set aside for fun and games while you eat locally prepared food.

We have indoor and outdoor seating, where you can see the beautiful beach of our Gulf Coast in the distance. We also have a shelf full of family games that you’re welcome to take to your table or picnic blanket and enjoy. Build your own game night with family and friends any day of the week - or join us every friday night for BBQ, Beer ‘n Board Games and compete for prizes!

On Thursdays and Sundays listen to live music downstairs with talented local artists to set the perfect evening ambience. Bring your friends and join in!

What Makes Our Menu Special?

We want everyone to be able to enjoy the food at Picnic Beach. We serve multiple different dishes for anyone with any diet, preference, allergy, and taste. Want to watch the game with some smoked wings or a meaty burger and a cold beer? Come on in.

Need a fresh veggie bowl or salad with freshly made juice? We’ve got you covered.

From healthy to hearty, we’ve got it all. -- and don’t worry, those with gluten allergies have options here too!

Any sandwich can be made with a gluten free bun. We also have plenty of menu items that are already gluten free, just look for the “GF” next to items on the menu.

BBQ Meats & Seafood

We have a selection of award winning barbecue smoked meats prepared and carefully seasoned to perfection by our pitmaster. Chicken, pork, brisket, conecuh sausage, wings, and ribs galore. Our meats can be served as a platter or get them between the buns! Not sure which one to try first? We offer a BBQ Trio platter on which you can sample three of our meats complemented by two sides. Our seafood items include shrimp (fried, steamed, and grilled,) mahi mahi, tuna, and salmon to compliment our clean veggie bowls, or try salmon or shrimp as its own platter!

For the Plant-Based at Heart

Tired of going out with friends & family and having next to nothing to eat? While we do serve plenty of meat, we also have a large variety of Vegetarian and Vegan options that we pride ourselves in offering. Feeling adventurous? Try our Mushroom Manwich topped with vegan gouda cheese. Craving veggies? Our Plant Power bowl is calling your name. Or keep it nice and classic with a Beyond Burger.

If you’re not super hungry but still want to snack, our buffalo cauliflower wings with house-made vegan ranch have been a hit amongst plant lovers and omnivores alike.

All of our juices and smoothies are vegan friendly, as well as our delicious acai bowl topped with fresh fruit and coconut flakes (ask for it with honey) to make a perfect dessert.

For adults, we even have a healthy “ Beachwhacker” made with coconut milk and cacao powder and a non-dairy Pina Colada. We offer all these items and yes, even more! Just look for the little green “V” next to items on the menu.
