“I want to emphasize the wonderfully delicious and diverse menu offerings that will satisfy all comers, including my vegan friends. To that end, I want to encourage you all to visit the magnificent buffet on Sundays from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., in which virtually everything normally found on the menu is available for a set price.  From tabouli salad to hummus and baba ganouj, to krass-stuffed pastry which I find simply irresistible, to stuffed grape leaves and moussaka. Under absolutely no circumstances should you skip the lamb shank that falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. And just when you thought that all this is enough, a dessert table terminates all thoughts of calorie counting.” Dr. Raoul RichardsonSenior V.P.  of Research and Development, Baheth Research & Development Laboratories LTD

“My wife and I love a good burger, and the GH Cheeseburger at Bucky’s at The Grand Hotel is one of our favorites. The garden pimento cheese that tops off the burger makes it a treat. The smoked ketchup, house pickles and toasted challah bun paired with a nice wine, craft beer or maybe a rare bourbon round out a delicious meal. We also enjoy sitting outside around a fire pit and watching the sun set over Mobile Bay. How lucky we are to have this newly renovated   jewel of a landmark in Point Clear! Dr. Marshall ShoemakerDoctor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Shoemaker OB-GYN

“Thyme on Section, nestled right in downtown Fairhope, offers a refreshing approach to some traditional options with their own unique spins. Their local produce and fresh seafood bring well-loved classics to a whole new level. The Caesar salad was reincarnated for me there! These guys turned it around. The grilled goat cheese croutons are a fun start that leads you to find hearty bits of thick-cut bacon, all mixed in with a wonderful dressing and fresh, crisp romaine lettuce.
Great salad!”
