Really nice but can get busy

My wife and I really like this restaurant. Everything we have tried so far has been great. The drinks as well. During tourist season, this place is a madhouse so we don't go during that. The service here is top notch. I recommend Sean and Wendy.

We had the pleasure of dinning at the Cobalt on Valentine's Day and left very happy and with smiles on our faces. When we arrived with no reservations we expected a very long wait because of the amount of dinners both seated and waiting. To our surprise by the time we had completed a single beverage, they had found us... More

My husband had never been and we decided to drive out on a very nasty night. Our waitress was wonderful although it seemed odd that after taking our order we only saw her twice after that. But she did seem very busy. One employee brought out our appetizer and another our salads and yet another our mains. Very weird. All... More

Great food and beverage choices even during Happy Hour. Our group enjoyed the Fried Catfish (no bones), fall off the bone ribs, Cobalt Pizza, crab bisque and rabbit gumbo along with some tasty beverages. So glad for a table near the window to get close up view of the Beautiful Sunset. Not a bad seat in the house.

Happy hour is hard to beat. They have oysters for 60 cents each and Dollar Yinglings with a great view of the bay. Service is friendly and quick.

Hey everyone- If you are considering a place where you do an affordable wedding and nice-priced menu for a reception think about Cobalt, The Restaurant in Orange Beach, Alabama. My wife and I were just married on Valentine's day 2015 outside on the terrace overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and all the happenings that occur around it. This was our second... More

I went to Cobalt for the first time for brunch. The wait staff was very personable and attentive and helped us figure out what we wanted to have. I enjoyed the atmosphere tremendously; the high ceilings, the view of the water, and the layout of the restaurant was great. They had very good drink specials (Mimosas, Bloody Marys, etc. for...

Enjoyed an early dinner at the Cobalt. Husband and I had 2 dz oysters and then frog legs. The filet stack was wonderful. The View of the Sunset on the bay gorgeous. The staff and food are top notch.

My wife and went with another couple to dinner at Cobalt. The view was very nice and the service was very good. Enjoyed the high ceiling and all the glass to look out of. The food was very good. I had a personnel pizza and it was one of the better pizza I have had in a long time.
