Since then, Bienville Bites has been named the “Best Food Tour in Alabama”, and has been consistently awarded the “Certificate of Excellence” by TripAdvisor, which is given to the top 10% of attractions worldwide based on excellent five-star reviews.

In the fall of 2020, the couple launched Taste of Fairhope in Fairhope, Alabama, allowing people to connect through food and drink on both sides of Mobile Bay.

The two are passionate about connecting people to the city of Mobile through food and drink while giving them experiences to share with others.
