Original Oyster House Offers Free Lunch to First Responders
The Original Oyster House restaurants will honor Mobile and Baldwin County law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics and sheriff officers by offering a free “Never Forget” Lunch at either the Gulf Shores or Mobile Causeway location on Friday, Sept. 10, 2021 from 11 am to 4 pm. The 14th Annual Never Forget Lunch was established by the Original Oyster House restaurants in honor of the 9/11 First Responders who risked their lives to save, protect and serve and in recognition of all first responders for their service. ID or first responders uniform is required for free dine-in only lunch.
Blood Drive Tribute
In memory of victims of 9/11, LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, a 501(c) 3 non-profit community blood supplier, will also be on hand at the Mobile Causeway location for blood donations. A special illustrated 9/11 t-shirt will commend all donors. Blood donations collected at the Never Forget Lunch are distributed to local hospitals. Mobile’s best attractions including GulfQuest, Bellingrath Gardens, Perdido Queen Dinner Cruises and Visit Mobile will also be onsite to honor our first responders and pass out free or discounted tickets. iHeart Media will support the event through public service announcements.
The Original Oyster House has become the “must-go-to” place for great fresh Gulf seafood, service and Southern hospitality and for its panoramic waterfront sunsets. A top-spot for hand-shucked and fire-grilled oysters, the Original Oyster House has also become legendary for its homemade gumbo, cheesy grits with blackened shrimp, as well as handcrafted desserts including its famous Peanut Butter Pie. In 2016, the Original Oyster House became the first restaurant in the state of Alabama to recycle oyster shells through the Alabama Coastal Foundation. In July of 2021, an estimated 16 million oyster shells to date have been recovered from participating Gulf Coast restaurants.
The Original Oyster House (OOH) has two locations, Mobile: 3733 Battleship Parkway, on the Causeway and Gulf Shores: 701 Gulf Shores Parkway on the Original Oyster House Boardwalk. Both locations offer spectacular waterfront views and have been celebrated as the area’s finest family restaurants for the past 37 years.
