Try Cobalt, Zen, Fisher's, Shipp's Harbor, Nolan's or Legends. if you want a little more upscale try Villagio or the Sunset Corkroom.

Okay...I'll ask the stupid question. Why not go to Cosmo's?

Got it. Not much of a Nolan's fan. I'll cook steaks at home before I'll go to Nolan's.

Nolan's 16 oz. Steerbutt was the best steak on the island when they had their original location on Beach Rd. I have heard the quality has slipped a little but didn't know how bad.

Yeah, agree that the original location had better food. Not sure why, as it's the same bunch of people running the place. Maybe bringing the kids into the business isn't as good an idea as it sounds....

I believe the new place at the Wharf is Louisiana Pantry by chef Thomas Wolf. Haven't been yet.

Also at The Wharf, Compleat Angler has replaced the old Guy Harvey's restaurant. Nice waterfront views and a Caribbean-oriented menu.

Robert C- I'm glad to see you mentioned Zen. I love their creative Asian-fusion menu, especially their hoisin-glazed ribs.

We love Cafe Graze in Orange Beach for Italian. I saw that Lesters has reopened near the Wharf. That used to be one our favorites. Used to get paneed catfish on goueda grits that was so good! (please forgive my sp) We plan on trying Cobalts sometime. Cosmos is our fav!
