Acme Oyster House Branching Out to Gulf Shores

Excited local residents gathered at Canal Park in Gulf Shores on May 8, 2013 for the unveiling of plans for Waterway Village and the announcement that Acme Oyster House will build in this new waterfront development.

Acme Oyster House has been a landmark in the French Quarter in New Orleans for 103 years, so the news that they will build an 8,000 sq. ft. restaurant on our coast is thrilling. And to give us a (literal) taste of how special this news really is, they treated us to a wide array of seafood delights including their world-famous chargrilled oysters.

The new Waterway Village development, made possible by a $1 million BP grant, will soon take shape along both sides of the Intracoastal Waterway creating a unique downtown atmosphere. This  pedestrian-friendly area will feature quaint streets with tree-lined sidewalks, inviting seating areas, decorative lamp posts and a waterfront boardwalk offering dining, shopping and entertainment.

Currently LuLu's at Homeport Marina and Tacky Jack's are located within this newly designed Waterway Village area and Acme Oyster House will join them in the coming months. No doubt you will want to place all three restaurants on your coastal agenda.
