I just made reservations for a week in July. I believe that I've stayed at the Island House at least once each year for the past 6-7 years, both for business and pleasure. I've stayed in all seasons but summer has to be the best. It's a great beach hotel! The views of the Gulf and the surrounding area are exceptional. Be sure and take a camera, binoculars and a flashlight. Watch the dophins early in the morning. Take an evening stroll on the beach and use the flashlight to spot ghost crabs. As pointed out by others, the restaurant is very nice and has good food. It's cozy, but I've never had a problem finding a seat. There are literally dozens of great restaurants in the area, but plan to stand in line for dinner in the summer unless you're a very early bird. When vacationing, we like to eat a late breakfast, a late afternoon lunch, and then grab something later in the evening when crusing the nighlife. If you decide to stay in and just enjoy sitting on your private balcony, then you can always order a pizza. One of my favorite restaurants, the Original Point Oyster House, in Innerrarity Point, FL, is closed on Mondays. I'll not forget that this year after forgetting it the past two years. I can also personnally recommend The Original Oyster House Restaurant in Gulf Shores, Tacky Jack's on Cotton Bayou, Doc's Seafood in Orange Beach, and Lagniappe in Orange Beach. Doc's is really laid back and I've never had a bad meal there. Zeke's Marina and Restaurant is just across the road from the Island House but I haven't eaten there is years. There are many many other great places to eat and YOU need to find YOUR favorites. I've been to many beaches all over the US and several countries and I can't think of any that are better, and none with whiter sand. One last note, the Mardi Gras celebration parade for the area is a fun event and comes right past the Island House Hotel. If you want to have a good time and collect a lot of beads don't miss it.
