When traveling with young kids on a beach getaway, it helps to find kid-friendly restaurants that serve good food and offer activities to keep the kids entertained. The Hangout is designed with kids of all ages in mind — and even lets you play while you eat. Our sprawling complex allows parents to unwind while providing kid-friendly activities to keep the little ones occupied in a safe, open beach atmosphere.

The Menu

Although fun is definitely on the menu, you also want your child to eat. Our kids menu has small plates that are big on taste and offers a little of everything to cater to picky palates. Menu items include hot dogs, cheeseburgers, chicken strips, fish sticks, pizza, mac and cheese, grilled chicken breast and grilled mahi mahi that are served with French fries, applesauce or the vegetable of the day. Top it off with a fun ’50s shake — a delicious vanilla milkshake drizzled with chocolate sauce and served in a fun Hangout souvenir glass.

During the summer, kids love the Pirates & Princesses Breakfast held through Labor Day. Kids dress the part in their favorite frilly dress or pirate patch and search for buried treasure. Families can enjoy skits and swordfights performed by our talented wait staff while filling their tummies with an all-you-can-eat Southern breakfast that includes homestyle scrambled eggs, sausage links, low-country grits, breakfast potatoes, smoked bacon strips and buttermilk biscuits with gravy.

Our Place Is F-U-N

The Hangout is an indoor-outdoor restaurant perched on the shimmering shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy our beach access that leads to pristine white-sand shores overlooking crystal-clear water, or spend the day unwinding to live music while the kids romp in our play areas. Courtyard games include free foosball, ping-pong and more. We have hair braiding, temporary tattoos, bungee jumping and a giant Shaka hand.

Kids also love building sandcastles in our giant sandpit or playing in our hourly foam party. Take a family picture seated in one of our oversized Adirondack chairs and view our festive walls filled with collections of vintage lunch boxes, toys, posters and more. Each wall is covered in something different and one special wall is dedicated to wishes!

Join us at The Hangout, 101 E. Beach Blvd., Gulf Shores, Alabama, for fresh fun served up every day! Our open-air restaurant offers great food and entertainment for the whole family.
