Cooper Restaurants

In 1997, Cooper/T.Smith acquired the Ruth’s Chris Steak House franchise in Mobile, Alabama, and subsequently went on to open Felix’s Fish Camp Grill. In 2010, the BLUEGILL Restaurant, a Mobile Bay Causeway tradition since 1958, was acquired and re-opened to rave reviews. The success of this division has prompted us to pursue future expansion in the hospitality industry.


When you combine fresh local seafood, live music, a casual atmosphere and cold beer you get the BLUEGILL, "a Great Local Dive" that has been an authentic piece of Causeway history since 1958. Home of the Famous Flamin’ Oysters!


Situated on scenic Mobile Bay, Felix’s Fish Camp is the premier choice for fresh Gulf seafood, USDA-certified steak, and breathtaking views on the Mobile Causeway. Incredible entrees paired with outstanding service ensure our guests feel like the toast of the town.
