Mashed has high praise for this Fairhope-based diner. Here’s an excerpt of the story. 

“Nestled on the coast of Southwestern Alabama is the small town of Fairhope, Alabama. There you’ll find waterfront restaurant Sunset Pointe, run by a man known as “Panini Pete” who brought in Guy Fieri not to taste his sandwiches, but his fresh and delicious seafood creations – and we can’t help but agree with hat decision. Relax in the casual atmosphere, gaze out at the ocean view, and be sure to check out the Eastern Shore Bouillabaisse, loaded with gulf coast shrimp, mussels, and leeks; and the Gulf Snapper Throats bathed in garlic butter. We promise, you won’t find better seafood in the entire state.”
