Meet Our Chef

The Perdido Beach Resort is honored to have Chef Brody Olive as the Executive Chef to lead our culinary team encompassing all food and beverage operations throughout the hotel’s four restaurants and multiple banquet facilities. Chef Olive brings to the resort an impressive background of training and accomplishments.  He attended Johnson and Wales University where he learned the culinary fundamentals. He began his career at Ocean Restaurant in Birmingham as the Sous Chef, studying under the owner and well-known restaurateur Chef George Reis. Ocean achieved many honors during Brody's tenure, including the AAA Four Diamond Award and Five Stars by Birmingham News. Brody then assisted with the opening of Ocean's sister restaurant, 26, known for its funky South Beach atmosphere and eclectic menu.

Prior to joining Voyagers at Perdido Beach Resort, Chef Olive built a great reputation for his development of creative offerings at some of the premier restaurant venues in the Orange Beach and Gulf Shores area.  He initially moved to the Gulf Coast to open Villaggio Grille, where he was Executive Chef and General Manager. At Villaggio Grille, he conceptualized a menu offering "new and old world cookery" with Italian, Mediterranean and low country fusion. In 2011, Brody opened Elli Bistro in Gulf Shores and Zen Restaurant in Orange Beach as Executive Chef and General Manager, bringing a menu of Pacific Rim flavors to Gulf Seafood before moving to The Beach Club where he served as Executive Chef.

Brody won the Southern Breeze Gulf Coast Cook-Off in 2008 and Zatarain's Annual National Shrimp Festival Chef Challenge in 2009 and 2013. He also won the Wine Spectator Award in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2015, 2016 and 2017. In 2014, Brody took home three prestigious awards at Wharf Uncorked, including Grand Tasting Winner, People’s Choice Award, and the award for Best Use of Ingredients. Recently Brody has won the 2017 Alabama Gulf Seafood Cook-off, the 2016 People’s Choice Award at Lion’s on the Line competition, the 2016 Wharf Uncorked Chef Competition and was selected as a Finalist in the 2016 World Food Championship. He was also a Finalist in the Alabama Restaurant & Hospitality Association “Stars of the Industry” for Chef of the Year, was a 2016 Finalist in the Alabama Gulf Seafood Cook-off and was voted as one of AL.com’s “Up and Coming Chefs”.

Chef Olive is focused on only serving the highest quality Gulf seafood that is locally sourced.  He is passionate about using fresh ingredients, prepared simply and beautifully so that the flavors of the food are allowed to shine.
