It didn’t take long for Fisher’s Upstairs to firmly set its hooks into the Orange Beach dining scene.

Thanks largely to the culinary talents of Executive Chef Bill Briand and his fresh take on the freshest of seafood, Fisher’s Upstairs is on many “must” lists when visiting the Alabama Gulf Coast. The four-time James Beard Awards semifinalist is one of the rising chefs of the South.

It’s no surprise, then, that the dish is on the 100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama Before You Die list published by the Alabama Tourism Department.
