Dining near the water allows you to impress your date by sharing champagne at sunset, writing your names in the sand, and playing a shark like a trumpet. Put fresh seafood to good use with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of casual surf and turf at River Shack Restaurant.
From its picturesque perch off of Mobile Bay, River Shack Restaurant dishes up fresh, locally caught seafood along with succulent steaks and burgers. Tuck into classic menu items such as the fried or grilled po boys starring fillings of shrimp ($10.95), flounder ($10.95), chicken ($9.95), or oyster ($12.95), or angle fishing rods made of taste buds toward the catfish, served grilled or fried ($12.95). The 16-ounce sirloin USDA prime steak ($18.95) packs a punch at carnivorous hunger pangs, and the surf and turf entree unites a 7-ounce rib eye with a half-dozen shrimp for a flavorful interspecies waltz as two side-dishes award style points from the sidelines ($21.95).
Boasting a rustic, wooden interior; large, open windows; and live music Saturdays and Sundays, River Shack Restaurant beckons patrons to kick back and nurse a cold brew from the bar while contemplating a permanent address change to the adjacent pier.
