A popular restaurant on the Panhandle has brought its “stink” to Auburn.
But it stinks in name only.
Stinky’s Fish Camp opened its second restaurant this week near the intersection of Wire Road and Shug Jordan Parkway. Its other location opened 11 years ago in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, and is a popular hotspot for beachgoers who want to dine on fresh Gulf seafood.
“The city actually wanted us to come here,” said Stan Meadows, partner and chief operating officer. “Auburn’s biggest reason is that a lot of people in Auburn know about us, our Santa Rosa Beach location.”
Now Stinky’s brings fresh seafood to the Plains.
The menu mirrors that of Santa Rosa and will include fresh, prepared oysters, a lunch menu that includes “Gulf-to-table” seafood selections, and a daily lunch feature, such as Taco Tuesday and Shrimp and Grits on Saturday, and a signature menu for dinner. seafood entrees as well as steaks, ribs and pork chops.
The restaurant will be open seven days a week, with lunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., dinner from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and happy hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
There will also be occasional musical events.
“We’ll have an event or a party and we’ll have music with that and our food and atmosphere,” Meadows said.
