Original Oyster House Celebrates First Responders with Free Lunch
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 the Gulf Shores and Mobile Causeway location on Friday, Sept. 9, 2022 from 11 am to 4 pm. The 15th 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. An ID or first responder’s 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 site at the Mobile Causeway location for blood donations. A specially designed t-shirt supporting first responders will commend all donors. Blood donations collected at the Never Forget Lunch are distributed to local hospitals. Mobile’s best attractions including GulfQuest, Mobile Carnival Museum, USS Alabama Battleship, OWA Parks & Resort, Braided River Brewing Company and Visit Mobile will pass out free and discounted tickets. iHeart Media generously supports the Never Forget Lunch through public service announcements.
The Original Oyster House has become the “must-go-to” place for great fresh Gulf seafood, service and 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 Chocolate Chip 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 2022, an estimated 18.8 million oyster shells have been recovered.
The Original Oyster House (OOH) has two locations: 3733 Battleship Parkway on the Mobile Causeway and 701 Gulf Shores Parkway in Gulf Shores. Both locations offer spectacular waterfront views and have been celebrated as the area’s finest family restaurants for the past 38 years.
