Capt. Al’s: A Family Legacy Packed With Flavor & Expanding Dreams

Captain Al’s has been rocking the steaks and seafood as long as I can remember.  Every weekend there was a line of people waiting to get in at the original location at Dedeaux Rd. and Lorraine-Cowan, and I witnessed this while I was living in Gulfport.  Eventually they up-scaled the location to the southwest corner of the bridge, more than quadrupled their seating capacity, added the marina and gave us a beautiful venue and view over the bayou.  The business increased, the atmosphere grew into paradise, and the menu excelled with daily specials and Al’s daughters’ visions, and, her drive and determination to be the best steaks and seafood!  Stacey Magnusen pours her heart and soul into creating not only a thriving restaurant and bar, but, her latest creation includes a wharf for boat wet slip rentals, a dry dock (covered), boat launches, and Captain’s Wharf, selling all your boating needs from non-ethanol and diesel fuel, to everything boating and fishing related, (yes, beer as well!)  There is a beach to pull up on facing the main stage and tiki bar coming soon, as well as Bently pontoon rentals, jet ski rentals, kayaks, and paddle boards too, with a fantastic restaurant to dine.  On major event weekends there may be as many as three bands playing, and the view offers a sweet sunset as well.  

     Stacey is my new hero working her way into a new experience for Gulfport!  Carter Champions enlisted her help, with the Boatin’ for Boobies parade, successfully helping hundreds of women with breast cancer, and will be hosting another parade, coming up in July.  Along with her surrounding competitors, she reaches out to all to achieve a circle of success for all in her neighboring waterway.  I can’t express how impressed I am with this young woman and the future that looms ahead of her!  Way to go Stacey, everyone behind you is striving for you all to reach your goals, go girl, go!  (I love that she wants to help everyone succeed!)
