Shipp’s Harbour will re-open later this month
An early morning blaze in the kitchen of Shipps Habour Grill late last month has forced the restaurant at Sportsman Marina in Orange Beach to temporarily close, but owners Regina and Matt Shipp say they are working hard to get back open before Labor Day Weekend.
“Shipp’s Harbour Grill wants to thank the Orange Beach Fire Department, who responded quickly to save Shipp’s, and all the locals for their kind words and support,’’ said Regina Shipp. “We had a fire in the kitchen, but thanks to the Orange Beach Fire Department, it was contained to that area. Look for a newly renovated Shipps to open in late August,’’ she added.
The fire broke out around 4 a.m. on July 24 in the kitchen area and caused damage to the kitchen, but little damage to the dining area and the outside of the restaurant.
Shipp’s is very popular eatery for both locals and tourists, and its owners are very active in their support of Pleasure Island community service organizations, including the South Baldwin Theatre and Orange Beach PTA
