Legendary Wolf Bay Lodge Reopens - Now in Orange Beach

Tragedy struck southern Alabama one early Sunday morning in December when the legendary Wolf Bay Lodge burned to the ground. The popularity of this quaint restaurant hidden away on the banks of the bay was evident by the length of the wait weekdays as well as weekends. The owners built a reputation for excellent fresh seafood served in abundance from friendly waitstaff.

So locals and tourists waited with anticipation to hear what the plans for reopening will be. Fortunately the restaurant will be rebuilt in the original location with even better water views. But that won't happen for another year - how can we wait that long?

Not to worry. The restaurant opened today at the former Zeke's Restaurant location in Orange Beach. Great news for all especially as the spring break crowds begin their treks to the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast this weekend.
