REVIEWS OF Cosmo's Restaurant & Bar IN Alabama

Lisa Rose

Food is amazing. Love the atmosphere. Always a favorite!

D Yokem

Very good food and atmosphere and location is terrific. Also, other shops/eateries in that location deserve a nod....BuzzCat has great coffee and treats.

Carl Myrick

Food was bland and the service was uncharacteristically slow.

Kevin Bentley

Cosmo's was great we came late after games and they accommodated us we had an extremely large party food and drinks were great

Kyle Kuepker

Good food good service....our second time in as many trips to Gulf Shores. Will continue to come back.

Susan Dees

Firecracker shrimp were delicious, but the blackened chicken ceasar salad was almost tasteless. :(

Michelle B

Good food and great service ,whenever I'm in town I may revisit again .

karen beaird

Love this place we go every year when we vacation at Orange Beach

Terry Sears

We had lunch today there and had a waitress named Lee.She was a awesome waitress, probably one of the best we’ve ever had , the food was great the desserts were to die for. Highly recommended by this family from Kansas!!

Kim Harrington

Beautiful outdoor seating. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Cheese dip was delicious. The soup of the day was Reuben. Yes Reuben. I asked our server about it and she came back with a sample. It was very good. Husband had the bacon cheeseburger and he enjoyed it. I had the chicken roulade and it was very good. Blueberry bread pudding was dessert and my husband and I loved it! We will go back soon.

Joe Gnitteo

I’ve been coming here for years and it never disappoints! The Ribeye and Chicken Roulade are top notch.

Candy Vinson

Our group of 10 women comes here every month to celebrate birthdays! They have great food and awesome atmosphere! But the last time we went (2 days ago) our waitress (her name was Seeya) messed up each and everyone's bills so bad. The best part is that the manager made it right, but we had to wait awhile to get it straightened out! We all live here so we will go back, just want to make sure we have a different wait staff! But if it continues, we will have to find another restaurant to meet up for the birthdays!

Jimmy Le

Favorite place to eat in orange beach. Food is always great, I always order the special of the day and it never disappoints.

Rebekah Rice

Friendly and helpful staff. Great food. Yummy seafood options and more. Great drinks. I like the Cosmo Cooler (I think that's what it was called). Loved the live music and giftshop nearby when we waited for our table. I can recommend both the grilled shrimp and the crab cakes. Great polenta. Good sushi options. Nieces liked their mermaid water drink. Second visit and will go again!

David Dickerson

All parts of this experience was great. I would recommend this place to anyone and I will return here again, when I am in the area.

Ryan York

Oddly enough, the duck sushi was actually really good (I know, right?) the rest of he food was really great except the nigiri fish was room temperature. I also wasn’t super impressed w/ the bartender, drinks were not mixed very well. Still a great restaurant.

Erica Keller

Our favorite place to eat when we are in town! The food is always wonderful our favorites are the duck sushi (and I do not like sushi but this is amazing) and the Barbecue crab claws(the name does do this justice ot is not a barbecue sauce and I don't really know how to explain it except to say yummy

Darrell Turner

Absolutely delicious food and exceptional customer service.

Caleb Spinks

Excellent food, excellent service! A good variety and top quality. We were very impressed.

Chris Hearn

I went here based off our Houston Foodie Facebook group and it did not disappoint. We didn't try the highly rated sushi, but we tried the burgers, Chicken Roulade and the fish wrap. Fries and entrées were awesome, but the Peanut Butter Pie dessert was so delish that it stole the show. All good here: food, service, atmosphere. We went right before happy hour and as we left, they had an excellent live band playing outside and it was a great vibe.

Michael Moyers

Great atmosphere highly recommend! Eat here every year on vacation.

Chase Evers

Great seafood! They looked packed but the service was fast as hell

Holly Smith

Nice atmosphere with outside seating delicious food and friendly staff. The gift shop attached is adorable also.

Rc Ussery

Love this place they truly have it going on service and food is the best around order the bbq crab claws!!!

John Ricks

Excellent as always


Food was excellent, service was great. Prices were a little higher than other resturantes we have been to but we'll worth it. We would likely stop here again if we come back to town.

Sean Wolf

Shrimp Po'boy and Creole roll were both excellent. Good beer selection and nice outdoor seating area

Ben Sailors

This place was great! I had thr cheesurger and spicy tuna sushi roll and both were amazing. My siblings and I all thought it was fantastic. Also, there is shaded outdoor seating, which is great, so there is a lot more room than what's inside.

Jash Yotes

Weekly Visit for this Local. Cosmos is one of the best restaurants in the area. The list of good (TRULY good) restaurants in the Gulf Shores/ Orange Beach area is embarrassingly short, but count Cosmos among them. I'd lived here for almost a year and always avoided the place because the logo projected a touristy a vibe. After parking and walking into the restaurant, I was really really surprised at what I saw when we were walking to be seated at our table - the restaurant is gorgeous. Thoughtful beer list - a decent selection when compared to restaurants from other cities, PHENOMENAL for the GS/OB area. Food has always been fantastic (with a wide variety of options), isn't expensive, and we keep coming back week after week.

Dave Phelps

Good food & adult beverages. The gift shop and wine store always have fun stuff.

Danielle McConathy

The BEST food we've ever had! Try the swordfish if it is the catch of the day. You wont regret it! The savory cheesecake was amazing as well.

April Smith

Great food, good service, nice inside and outside seating.

aaron mccoy

Very good appetizers and main dishes. Can get busy so get there early or be prepared to wait. Good customer service.


Not as great as others in area. Good food but pricing and quantity not on par with other dining establishments.

Stephen Beers

Always a great choice. Specials make this one of the best bangs for your buck. Food is great and portions are large.

mark Buntyn

Great food! Good atmosphere!

Sarah Jane

Best burger I've had in a long time!

Trisha Munger

Horrible experience. Most disrespectful waiter EVER. I lived in OB and now visit regularly. I always go to the same places but thought I’d try some place new because of good reviews but wouldn’t waste one more penny at this place. I get having a bad day, I’ve waited tables but I’m your customer SERVE me. Manager respectfully apologized for poor service BIG deal. Said “well I hope you give us another try!” Really? First off COMP me something to make me feel better about my poor experience. Second there’s way to many other options for me to ever return because of an I’m sorry. If you are looking for a respectful place to go and spend your money look elsewhere. Oh and my $20 crab claw appetizer were a waste of money.Way to small and barely any on the plate. Left starving.

Family Towles

Great food and service. Had a recommendation to check this place. It's really a big complex with multiple restaurants and shops. I had the chef's special of bronzed trigger fish while my wife had the catch of the day featuring blackened grouper. Both were exceptional. My daughter had the fried fish and fries. She liked them as well. Really great service as well.

Sharon Gabrian

Loved it! Had grilled shrimp and risotto. It was perfect!! I will be back. Prices were great and so was the service!

Misty Morgan

Atmosphere was nice and relaxing, sushi was FANTASTIC! Thanks for a perfect Father’s Day dinner!

Monique Richer

Great atmosphere, service & food!

Chuck Turner

Awesome food and drinks with very good staff

Angela Gaines

Great service. Good food. Over priced. Very expensive.

Steve Hann

Food is a FIVE, waitress is a 5, place is noisy so I give her a 4. However, excellent Sea Bass and Tuna. Best food we have had in Orange Beach or Gulf Shores.

Larry Case

Good quality food and good service. We are there a couple of times each visit to OB.

James Carpenter

Food and service is excellent.

Paula W

I have had good experiences at this restaurant, however, it seems that the service declines in the off season. My husband and I were there last week and got seated. We sat outside for 15 minutes without anyone even taking a drink order or bringing a water. We will most likely give this restaurant another shot though considering we do enjoy it.

George Astin

Consistently one of the best restaurant in our area. Get the savory cheesecake, a new dish everyday. It opens up whole new arenas for appetizers. Fresh fish and sushi. Service is always good and prices fair

Beth Buchanan

Just had dinner at Cosmo's for the first time. We will definitely go back! Shout out to Stacey, our server, she took great care of us and made wonderful suggestions. I had the blackened Snapper with grits and green beans. The Snapper was cooked perfectly, grits were awesome and the green beans were good as well. The Bleu Cheese dressing I had on my salad was to die for! My husband had the Crab Cakes with Asparagus and rice. The Crab Cakes had lots of crab with little fillers. The Asparagus was quite tasty. All in all we were very pleased with the atmosphere, service and food. I highly recommend it!!

Hunter Lowery

Cosmos, in spite of its location on Canal thrives. They have a chill environment. Plenty of TVs broadcasting the sports you care about Most of all it's a local joint. They treat fish with care and all the side dishes that accompany them. The joint is surrounded by neat stores and eateries worth your time as well. Local or vacationer, make the drive, enjoy the offerings and your welcome for the recommendation.

brittany stinson

Food was excellent but customer service was terrible. We have never felt so rushed before at a restaurant. A comment was even made about my child playing with the sugar packets and his car that fell off the table. Food was brought to the table and we were charged when we didn’t even order it. We originally asked for a kids meal to be split however instead we were brought two servings which increased our bill by $10. I would recommend if you are in a hurry, but if you are on beach time like most locals and visitors then I’d save your money and time and go somewhere else with better customer service and views.

Jumpy Lioness

Chandler was amazing and had a fantastic knowledge of the bar items. She had a great personality and made me feel so welcome. I don't usually go to bars because of my anxiety but I will definitely be back to this one!!

Cindy Brunner

This place was AMAZING!!! The service was on point, the food was phenomenal, and it was pet friendly so our babies had a blast getting loved on by everyone! The dirty grits were the highlight of my night and I didn't even order them!

Brian Tucker

Food was fantastic, service was excellent, music was perfect...will return and highly recommend.

Brenda Giles

Loved the canine decor and that the restaurant is named after a dog. Food is amazing. Highly recommend the Salmon Salad. So fresh!!! Service was good.

Sandra Whalen

We have to eat here every year on vacation. The atmosphere is so cool! The food is outta this world!

Christin Vaughan

This was the BEST place my husband and I ate at after staying in Gulf Shores for a week. In my opinion, it was way better than the other “popular” places with tons of reviews. This is a must go for sure and try the pecan redfish and firecracker shrimp. The restaurant is named after a dog. No wonder I liked this place so much!

shawn stinson

They have the worst customer service in Orange Beach that I've experienced in 30+ yrs. I think the waiter was mad that our 4 yr old pulled out 2 sugar packets and placed them on the table. He mumbled that they couldn't get wet as we said we're sorry. Also, he brought the check out as soon as we received drinks and basically pushed us out of the door. Maybe we're too southern, but he never acknowledged our "Thank you" or "Sorrys". He seemed agitated as well when he picked up my 4 yr old sons dropped hotwheel. The food was pretty good though.

Tauna Kemp

Food is ok not any better than an average cost restaurant so they are over priced. Service is excellent, patio is great for dining

Craig Winn

Great ambiance and fish. The market blackened grouper was fantastic. The lunch portion was good sized. We sat in the bar but the service was excellent.

Trish Morley

Great food and service

Jan Martin Kiefer

I’ve been to this place twice so far for dinner. The food is good and the staff very friendly. I’d go there again if I happen to come back to orange beach

kristin Fox

The food is ALWAYS amazing!!!! Dave was our server, he was prompt and very courteous! Always a good experience when we visit.

alex maxwell

Excellent service and excellent food. Frankly surprised at how good.

Jim Scantlin

One of our favorite places in the Orange Beach / Gulf Shores area. Our first trip to Cosmos was 2001 and we’ve visited here practically every time we are in the area. We typically have the sautéed crab claws with dirty risotto, gumbo and firecracker shrimp. Everything we’ve ever had there has been amazing. They are dog friendly. Service has always been great.

Terra Beasley

Great service & excellent food. This is one of my new favorite places!

Jennifer Cunningham

Food was great, especially the german pot roast and shrimp roll! I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the (bread) pudding of the day - peanut butter chocolate in a ridiculously delicious sauce. Their garlic and herb butter and fresh bread was fantastic too. Super casual and great service! Definitely would recommend!

Rachel C.

Come here every year for our anniversary, food is fantastic, great gift shop and bar!! Shout out to Mark the waiter, he is fantastic


Been here 4 or 5 times with and without our dogs. Excellent food, friendly staff and roomy accommodations. You won't be dissappointed

Tristan B.

The service is very prompt and fast, as well as respectful. The food (I got the Swordfish) was absolutely perfect. It didn't even taste like fish, it tasted like a steak. My girlfriend got the shrimp roll sushi, and I hate sushi and liked it. She also got the crab cake sandwich and they made it wonderfully, going as far to even toast the bun. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Briscoe Magnum

Good food, great service. Leigh was a great waitress, and made excellent recommendations. That coconut pineapple mojito... freaking excellent!

Fred Norris

Oh so great! We will be back again and again.

Kris McKinney

Had a great time at Cosmo's!!!!!! The food was amazing and the service was excellent as well. I was busy and we still recieved our food with a minimal wait. I would recommend, you won't be disappointed.

Georgia Day

We only had 2 in our party and arrived about 5:30 on Friday night. The wait was only about 5 minutes for a bar table. We loved this place. The service was so friendly...The server and the bartender especially! We requested a special drink to be made and the bartender happily accommodated. I had Mahi Mahi sandwich which was amazing and my husband had the catch of the day Grouper which he enjoyed!

Fred Clingen

Great experience all around with good food as well, calamari, chicken fingers, tenderloin and catfish were all prepared and presented wonderfully. Handicap access from both sides of the restaurant make it nice for those with walkers and the bathrooms were clean and easy to navigate with a walker. Highly recommended.

Kenneth Smith

Food and service was suboptimal. Waited an hour to eat and food was less than impressive.


Decent food, kind of expensive, cool atmosphere

William Wolfe

Knocked it out of the park again! This is my go-to restaurant when I go to the beach. Not pictured here was the Cajun crab cheesecake I devoured.

John Ratcliff

Consistently excellent food. One of the best hamburgers I've ever had. Wonderful bread puddings (not always the same). And much more.

Joanna Graves

We love Melissa! There's a spicy shrimp appetizer...... ORDER IT! The desserts aren't great.

Aaron Mowery

Great staff and great food!

Darlene Freeman

Good food, great waiter, good atmosphere

Eric Burkett

The fried crab claws were the best I have ever had.

Matthew Horton

Definitely top choice for dining with all amenities. Great seafood, pasta, sushi, drinks the works! Decent prices for the food also, worth every penny. Enjoyed my meal and drinks outside underneath cooling fans and live music. If you like sushi spicy tuna roll topped with crab meat. Perfection!!! A+++

Cindy Micci

Cosmos was great! We celebrated my Mother's birthday with family. Alex the bar manager provided a special dining space for us, and our server JoAnn served our

Noisy Clifton

It was nice but pricey for me. Although I'm sure it's the season to overcharge at the Gulf. Good atmosphere outside! Live music is a nice touch.

James Miller

We are blessed having so many great places to eat in Orange Beach, and Cosmo's has been on our top 5 list for years. We prefer a seat in the bar area, but out or in works. The crabcake sandwich is wonderful, as are the grilled tuna filet salad and the fruit salad. The fried mahi over grits with smothered greens was a chef's special, and it was awesome. Oh yes, be sure to try the strawberry bread pudding.

Alex Lingel

Our family of 6 had calamari, crawfish tails, and each had a yummy spread of sushi rolls! So so yummy and had an amazing experience! Thanks so much to Keri for the wonderful service, and for a wonderful night!!!

Cherisse Caster Heidingsfelder

We visited Cosmos tonight and ordered the steak. The steak we ordered came back raw. We had to send the steak back three seperate times due to the steak being raw. I would not return.

Ron Penrod

Love the food and atmosphere.

Dale Rickman

Had wonderful shrimp appetizer, great burger as well.

Travis Williamson

Food is fabulous! Sushi is a must try and the pecan redfish is amazing!! Live music was so pleasant!! Great service too

Keith Cain

Excellent food and service. If you want seafood while here in Orange Beach, this is the place to go.

Tammy Moore

Great music, great food, great sevice

Jenna Brown

our waiters name was mark & he was the best!!!! the best waiter i’ve ever had. i love him & my salad was so good!!! love love love this place


Great place! BBQ crab claws are fabulous and so was the calamari! Mary was on top of our every need! We got desserts to go for later! Has a great outdoor patio with live music. Very relaxed atmosphere and perfect family spot!


oh my god this is the best seafood restaurant. I highly recommend going during happy hour 3-5pm. Appetizers are half off and so is sushi. Best crab cakes. Pecan redfish is absolutely amazing. Get honey mustard dressing for the salad it is amazing.

Kathy Parker Hammond

Awesome food, service, and atmosphere ~ so nice and relaxing!

Nancy Smith

Awesome crabcakes and great service!

Nathan Smith

The service is fantastic, they've got live music if that's your thing, and the food is great. You get plenty for your money. Do yourself a favor and get the peanut butter pie. Plus the attached gift shop has a surprisingly diverse and high quality selection. The worst thing I can say about this place is that their menu might be a bit too diverse - it's hard to decide what to get!

Mark E

Great family restaurant with handicap accessible ramps and parking. The prices are on the high side of reasonable but that should not be a deterrent. We paid upper $70s for 5 of us, main meal plus drinks and apps. But the portions were plentiful. Go there and get stuffed!

Paula Duprey

Nice atmosphere, great staff and good food.

Pam Starr

Good food options. Cold beer. Great little place for happy hour chow! Staff was awesome.

Tyne Brewer

Good live music. Good service too. Pecan pie is fantastic

Ted Smith

For Valentine's Day, we had made reservations for 4 at 6:00. We arrived at the restaurant around 5:40 and we're told our reservations were for 6:30. We were told we would be seated at first open table and we could sit at the bar and have a drink. We went to to the bar, found a table and looked over the drink menu. A server came by and said he needed for us to move so they could seat another party there. 6:40 comes along and we impatiently went back to the hostess and told her we never were seated and now our reservation time has come and gone. "Oh, we can seat you right now" was her response. Our meals were good, the waiter seemed rushed (I realize it was a very busy night) but it just wasn't the experience I expected. Arbitrarily changing our reservations time (yes, my wife repeated 6:00 at least three times when making it and the man repeated it back before hanging up) is just not acceptable. It will be a while before I go back and try again. There are other options in the area.

David Paulk

The Chilean Sea Bass cooked in a banana leaf is the best piece of fish that I have ever eaten hands down !!! Amazing flavor !! The Cosmo's cooler is a delicious drink !! Excellent place to dine !!

Marie Bizal

Great choice for happy hour food and drink specials. Colorful, casual ambiance.

Jennifer Doyle

Great food live entertainment. Great atmosphere! Will definitely be back next vacation!

Lisa C

The staff was very friendly. The food was also good.

Donna Newsom

We did a drive-by, looked interesting, parked & went in. For just a little quick stop it surprised us by becoming a new favorite place to go when in Alabama! Very nice atmosphere, we sat on the deck. Food was very good. Couple drinks too. Can't wait till next time. Then it will be our destination!! (& hopes are we'll have a better waiter

Keith Williams

Food was good! Service good! A bit overpriced but expected for a tourist area. No surprises. Too noisy outside with the music.

Jason Hollis

Great food and excellent service! Love the atmosphere.

Lametria Dugger

Mini crabcakes were awesome and the Rum Runner coctail was perfect!! Enjoyed the outside deck atmosphere.

Reeds Big

Great food and atmosphere strong service

Scott Hallmark

Both the food and the service were outstanding. All of the food was really good, but two of us had the Chillean sea bass steamed in banana leaf, and it was incredible. Our server (also bartender) told us it was one of the most tender cuts of fish you will ever have. He was right. It was perfectly cooked. Buttery, tender, no fishy taste. It's one of the more expensive items on the menu, but totally worth it. And their cheese dip is really good too. I highly recommend this place.

Victoria Ibsen

LOVE this place!!! I always have to make a stop @ Cosmos for muffalletta and calamari when we visit Orange Beach or Gulf Shores. It is awesome!

Susan Elliot

Very good food. Fried shrimp was great. Sushi was delicious. Save room for the Key Lime pie!

Donna Riley-Lein

A great place for nice meal. And your dog is welcome to come with you as you fine on the covered porch. Fido gets own water bowl. Service is excellent.

Lora Romano

Handicap accessible entrance nd restaurant is very open so there is plenty of room for handicap equipment. Food was amazing, waiter was outstanding and dessert topped it all off. Can't wait to come back again!

Steven Bradley

Great food. Great service!

Rachel Smith

Great place to eat and service is outstanding. And it is pet friendly!

Dale Jackson

Great bar and restaurant, ask for Blaine to make your cocktails.

erica engele

The food was absolutely delicious! Mahi mahi sandwich and duck sushi rolls

Patricia Armstrong

Good was great. I ordered chicken breast wrapped in bacon but the portion was small for the price.

Pat Lannan

Loved it .It had just about anything you wanted on the menu. The service was great and the servers were very busy friendly. I got the shrimp and it was delicious Great place to go.

amgreer 1

Food was okay, but pretty pricey for the quality. Also waited about 10 minutes to get to go boxes then another 15 for out ticket, and they weren’t even busy. Pretty disappointing.

M Hale

They don't clean the poop strip out of shrimp. Then your waiter gets mad and avoids the whole table for the rest of the meal. Um. Lots of families seemed to enjoy it around us though. Good luck to all.

Beth Schaefer

I eat here every time I visit Orange Beach. So good!

Loren Swagerty

6 stars if I could! We got there right at 5 this Friday night and were seated immediately. My boyfriend and I got calamari as an appetizer, he got a beer, and I got a cosmos cooler. For entrees I got the chicken fettuccini Alfredo and it was fantastic!!!! You could tell it was all freshly made in house! My boyfriend got a ribeye with onion strings and mashed potatoes and it was the best mashed potatoes and steak from a restaurant he’d ever had. We were both so impressed and will definitely come back. Worth every penny!

Colton Beeler

Our 2nd time here, food was pretty good, service was good, but they forgot a portion of our meal. Of course, we weren’t charged for it but still, it was forgotten. It goes along with the normal beach theme of overpriced, “good enough” food.

Elicia Rideau

We found this place while in Orange Beach for vacation. There was plenty of outdoor seating on the covered patio. Our server was friendly and took time to explain and answer questions about the menu and specials. The andouille sausage crusted chicken was a little bland, but the portions were generous. The mixed drinks were strong and tasty.

Carl Black

Great lunch, nice outdoor atmosphere

Jordan Miller

Good food, rather pricey.

Stephen matthews

Food and Fun Service was super too!

Jeannie Cook

We called in 3 orders for take out. The staff were very competent and friendly. The food was high quality and cooked just right. We had fried oysters which were lightly breaded and they were not overcooked. The oysters were large and tasted fresh. We also had fillet mignon served with feta cheese. It was cooked perfectly and was delicious! We had key lime pie, creme brulee and bananas Foster. All of the desserts were great, too. You could taste quality ingredients and not just sugar.

Barrett Lee

We've been meaning to get here because we've heard nothing but good stuff. So far the salad with homemade hinet mustard dressing is great plus they offer you some excellent blue cheese and cracked pepper, that was a terrific salad. I almost lost it to my sweetie who was reluctant to give it back to me after having a few bites. Bree is our server and she is great with a bright and friendly personality and she knows her stuff. We got everything we needed and she kept tabs on us. The shrimp fritters appetizer was outstanding, they put some scallions and just a touch of corn with a nice homemade sauce for dipping, a big home run. They brought out some tasty rolls with butter and an offer for more if we so desired. For entrees I had some of the best fresh gulf shrimp that was lightly breaded and cooked perfectly, absolutely no grease and the full flavor of those excellent plump shrimpfest came through like a boss. Definitely in my top 3 It came with homemade tartar done right and a really crisp side of french fries and the cole slaw was simple and fresh. My sweetheart had a large and nice looking grilled and blackened mahi mahi sandwich (one of the specials) with smashed golden potatoes that were done right, I know because I tried it. They had entertainment tonight that finished up at 9:30pm (they're open til 10pm) adjacent to the indoor restaurant. The stage is in their charming and comfortable courtyard where your puppies are welcome. One couple had a very handsome and large cockerdoodle that had on a flashing party collar:-) This is quite a complex with indoor & outdoor seating with a lively little gift shop just off the courtyard. There's a hot new breakfast and sweets shop right next door called Buzzcats that is getting quite a bit of buzz plus there's Kuna's next door which us a drink & eat place. The same ownership also owns GT's, Cobalt's and others. The bottom line is this place offers very nice seafood and some good cuts if steak with some a nicely select menu with a handful of fresh catch specials and they have a BIG wine and beer menu. The folks are very professional, friendly and the service is spot on. The ownership/management has a terrific formula for doing the restaurant business right (Cobalt's is one of our fav's) and it's not a surprise that Cosmo's is a local favorite and now it's definitely one of ours!

Hunni Pott

Hubs and I visited tonight... food was excellent... our server Mary was amazing... the staff in general were. All busy, professional, efficient ... like a well oiled machine! The atmosphere was laid back, cheerful and seemed we were being catered to. Calamari were the best we’ve eaten in Alabama... I sure could have used some pasta with the marinara sauce they provided... it was that good!!!! We will be back!

Lisa Ayres

My favorite in Orange Beach! The duck sushi, the pepadews on the salad, the amazing, friendly service, the devotion to a beloved dog, and the amazing art that grew from that! What's not to love?

Bob Higgins

An excellent dining experience for many years. If you love seafood, you'll love this place! We had a group of 16 of us there this evening and every meal was perfectly done.

stephen carlton

The duck roll was phenomenal! As well as the mojito!

Thomas Lanan

If you go try the Salmon salad. The wife and I order this alot. One of our favorite places to eat. The Cuban sandwich is good also.

Ryan Rhodes

Seriously. Amazing. Firecracker shrimp and Asian Tuna. Trust me, trust me!

Derek Tucker

Great atmosphere, besides management allowing patrons to open carry at their establishment... It's hard to explain to a 4yr old why someone is carrying a gun that's not security or a police.

Emad Ghabayen

The food and the atmosphere is over the top, must visit this place whenever you are close.

Amanda Taylor

Very good food and great service. Our waiter was great to suggest items to try. The crab cakes were amazing!

Megan Hicks

The service was great. Very friendly staff, especially at the out door bar. On the other hand, the food was overcooked, overpriced, and over salted.

Kevin Holder

You three stars only because the food was pretty good. The service wasnt as good . The server had way too many tables and no extra hands. There was plenty of workers there that could help out but it was everyone for them self. Even the manager could of help but no she was more worried about the folks outside. We wont be back .

Monica Haile

Love this place! Great atmosphere! Waiter was super friendly and upbeat. He was very helpful and knew specials and menu well. He made some great suggestions and was very knowledgeable about the GF selections for one of our guest. She ordered a GF fish dish that she really enjoyed. We were all served quickly and everything was delicious! We will definitely be back!

Robert Scott

There is black mold on the foam noise dampeners on the ceiling. The smell of mold hit me hard when I first walked inside. If you have lung issues, like my niece, avoid sitting inside. My baked catfish had clearly been sitting under the heat lamp for ages waiting on the rest of our food. The plate was stupid hot and the fish had turned to mush. I ate off everyone else's plates and it was tasty. I enjoy live music but I don't think the guy knew all of the words to the songs he was singing. Our waitress might have been on meth. Jerky erratic movements, twitchy.

Robert Benson

Superior food and service. Exceptional gulf coast cuisine. We vacation in Gulf Shores about once a year, and this is always on the list.


Food was delicious. The alcoholic drinks were not as good. I wouldn't classify this as a kid friendly restaurant, but there was a decent amount of kids there. The kids menu is quite limited and the utensils are way too big for kids to use. Other than that, it was a good place. Staff was nice.

Bill Schornack

Great food and service

jeff patterson

My favorite restaurant on earth, been many times over the years and never had a bad experience. Order the crawfish tail app, dip the bread in the leftover sauce, and get the redfish entree. You can't go wrong.

Camellia Sheraliev

This cat lady loves Cosmo's! This lovely place was highly recommended to me by my wonderful boss who is from the area. After some research online, we picked this joint because of the creative menu and artsy vibe. The decor is fun and inviting-it's definitely dog-centric, but even this crazy cat lady could dig it :) Appealing mood lighting and good live music add to the cool atmosphere. Hubby is not a fan of fried food, which is ubiquitous in this part of the world, (but I am!) so I was glad to find a place that could satisfy both our cravings. It's always a good sign when a place is packed even in the off season - there was a 40 minute wait, so we wandered over to the gift shop next door. Do stop in and check it out - lots of cool and fun stuff for animal lovers, both cat and dog people alike. Things are very reasonably priced and the lady at the checkout is a joy to talk to. Our server, whose name unfortunately escapes me (Cassidy?), was excellent. I had been going to order a fried shrimp dish and she recommended a pasta dish that had shrimp and sausage in it instead. I'm glad I took her advice- the dish was fantastic. The shrimp was the freshest I'd ever tasted...and I think having it not fried showcased its flavour to the maximum. Mmmmm! I had an order of risotto on the side, and it was heavenly. Rich, perfectly creamy and so indulgent. The best I'd ever had! Had it been sweet you could've eaten it for dessert! Hubby had the banana-leaf wrapped Chilean Sea Bass...cooked perfectly and well-seasoned, but slightly bitter from the banana leaf. Dissapointing because this particular dish was one of the most expensive ones on the menu. My husband didn't seem to mind though. For dessert I had key lime pie, which was delightful. Cool, creamy and fresh, with just the right balance of sweetness and tartness. I highly recommend this restaurant- the service was top notch-it's a shame I can't remember our server's name, because she honestly was one of the best waitresses I've had the pleasure of dining with. She was super attentive without being intrusive, her sense of timing was impeccable-as soon as a plate was empty it was removed promptly, and drinks never ran low. Perhaps being seated next to the kitchen was helpful...but I was thoroughly impressed. What a wonderful end for my 44th birthday trip! We will be back!

Not a hole in the wall anymore. Food was good but not like it was last year. Cheesy merchandising and beer tasting that does not impress. I think this is my last time here. And find a switch for those fans, please! At 10pm there’s no reason to have those on full blast with water spraying on my food. Oh yeah, you now have a roof and no air circulation...
