This place is very big! Luckily there is plenty of parking and the flow is good so you're not feeling trapped in a mall. Selection of stores for men, women, kids and gifts/souvenirs. When we visited it was 2pm on a Thursday in February. Not much happening at that time. Would love a nice coffee shop here (if there's already... More

Still cool this time of year but still very nice. Easy to park and nice not to have crowds. Plenty of choices for meals and shopping. We like to go in off season.

There are several gift shops and restaurants here. Several times of the year, they do a light show with music and other special events.

Great shopping and restaurants. Also a great place the watch boats coming in and out. Several great restaurants. We tried Complete Angler and really enjoyed it. The shopping selection is not huge, but just enough to find something for everyone. I really enjoyed the Tervis store. The place was loaded with SEC schools, but the also had my ULM Warhawks!!!...

My wife and I visited the Wharf one evening. There is a large selection of restaurants and stores. There is also a selection of things to do. Easy parking and easy to get to. If in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area a must visit.

We go to Orange Beach / Gulf Shores a couple of times a year & try to go to The Wharf at least once a year - which always seems to be around Christmas. It's a great concept & I think it will get better as they add more things to do. First, the shopping, there are several stores along... More

It's a great place to see a movie, ride a Ferris wheel or see a concert (and other live music). It has several great places to eat and all kinds of high end boutiques . I enjoyed walking around and seeing the big yachts out back.

You can spend the day browsing the shops and get a quick bite to eat. It's decorated for Christmas and they have carriage rides available too. So many interesting shops to peruse.
