Tropics on the Causeway enhances their existing offering with more Volleyball courts in coming months

Johnny L1

Johnny Littleton, Jr. graduated from Daphne High School. He started working with his father, Johnny Littleton, Sr. at an early age and began learning the inner workings of the hospitality industry. Johnny, Sr. owned Chantilly’s on Airport Boulevard. When “Little Johnny” turned 21 he took over the operation that he had grown up in and ran it until the establishment closed in 2013. The Littletons desired to have a business on the Eastern Shore and had been eyeing a waterfront bar and restaurant since 2008. In 2011 the Littletons purchased what was formerly the Beach House Grill on the Causeway in Spanish Fort. The family reopened the location as Tropics Restaurant and Bar. Nature provides a beautiful backdrop with a fabulous view of the Delta and Mobile Bay. The Littleton’s revised the floorplan, spruced up the interior and enhanced the existing structure with risers and booths and pool tables (which are available for use at no charge!) Little Johnny’s brother, Julian Littleton was at the helm until this past January when Johnny took over. They have added Volleyball Courts that, when the weather warms up, will soon be drawing crowds for tournaments, local recreational teams and evens lessons. They are also in the process of adding two more courts and looking forward to kicking off that schedule in March.
