“Always great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

We ate a late lunch at Cosmos yesterday and the food was great--as always. We had the fried oysters and a combo plate of fried shrimp, oysters, and grouper fingers. The food was fresh and plentiful, the oysters were good sized, the service was excellent, and the restaurants ambiance was inviting. The outside seating area is very appealing. We always eat here while in Orange Beach and recommend it highly

“Great bar and good sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

It has been a while since I've eaten at Cosmo's. The summer tourist season means the restaurant is continually packed and wait times can be as much as two hours. Since it is off-season I went with some friends to have a few beers and sushi in the bar. Cosmo's has a good beer/wine/alcohol selection and a nice sushi selection as well. They have Nigiri, sushi and sashimi. We all had the Nigiri and some rolls. The spicy tuna, california and volcano rolls were particularly good. I have eaten from the regular menu before and enjoyed the meal too. There is a nice deck with an outside bar and a fire in the middle of the deck. On weekends the place gets packed so call ahead to see if you need reservations.

“Outstanding Over the Top Restaurant in Orange Beach, AL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Our must visit/eat restaurant every time we visit the Orange Beach area is Cosmos just off Canal Road. We chose a late afternoon/early evening time frame as this place is so popular that the after work crowd files in and the wait time can be fairly long. We went in and were immediately seated. Our server Ann, came over quickly, informed us of the daily specials and took our beverage order. I chose the Jerk Chicken which came in an Ancho Chile broth with sweet onions, peppers, a large portion of diced Jerk Chicken served over ziti noodles immersed in the broth. The side item was a dirty risotto with diced bits of cajun sausage. I had this meal of Wednesday of this past week today is Saturday and I am still dreaming and savoring just how outstanding this meal was........I have never ever been disappointed with a meal at Cosmos - that is why they will continue to be our "first choice, go-to restaurant"!!!!!!!

“Even excellent in the rain.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Cosmos Restaurant and Bar features indoor and outdoor dining. The outdoor seating is in a beautiful patio and usually features local musicians. They have overhead misting fans to cool you in the summer and a central fire pit to warm you in the late fall and winter. My wife and I visited Cosmos in a rainstorm. Regardless of the rain the dining experience was excellent. There is ample parking and we were immediately seated. Our server was pleasant and extremely knowledgeable of the menu and the specials. We started with the $3 Cosmopolitan which is the signature drink of the restaurant. We decided to sample the crab cakes which were delicious. The gumbo, a duck and Andouille sausage, was also delicious. For the entree we had beef toreadors, which again was delicious. To round it out we had key lime pie and peanut butter bread pudding. Charlotte and agreed this was the best meal of the trip.
