Still several retail and restaurant vacancies... But our favorite shops are still there. Plus The Sounthern Grind Coffee shop is a family tradition! While the girls shop, I visit the Cigar Bar to relax with a stogie and catch whatever game is playing. We've done the zip line and Ferris wheel, fun for kids of all ages.

Everything from A Ferris Wheel to gourmet dining, with lots of unique shops, boutiques, restaurants, a movie theater - lots of boat watching as well since the mall is on a Marina. Easy to walk to everything in this charming part of Orange Beach. All in all, there is something for everyone who wants to enjoy an hour or a... More

We have visited the Wharf several times when looking for that special gift for someone. Never been disappointed and was always able to find just the right item. Haven't eaten at any of the restaurants but they always look good and smell great. Eat out side and enjoy the day if you desire. You can always watch the boats there... More

When the weather is nice, this is a terrific place to go. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, they have an extended menu that includes a variety of tacos, oysters and crab. Two bars with a great selection of beers.

We have visited The Wharf every year for the past 5 years. In my opinion it's the best place in Orange Beach to stay. The shopping, restaurants and entertainment here can not be beat.

Boaters take notice! This is an excellent marina with a shopping, resturant and concert venue. Facilities are top notch with plenty of shops, resturants and boating related services. They have a lazy river for swimming and a trolly system to get you around. We are regular boaters for the weekend and concerts. What a great overall venue. We return on... More

Because of the time of the year the size of the crowd was quite small. Visited many of the shops including the Pepper Palace where I added to my hot sauce collection and the beef jerky store. Also tried the coffee shop which had decent coffee

This is a very nice compact shopping area. There are some places to eat and a parking deck. You will want to spend the day so go early and wear some comfortable clothing and shoes. Don't forget to ride the ferris wheel while you are there.
