We were looking to see and do something different for the evening as we were water logged between the beach and the rain. It was a well kept place with some nice stores. The light and music show was cool with the palm trees. They have a huge Ferris wheel. Worth seeing.

Wishing we had taken more time to check this out. The Ferris wheel was being worked on but the light show and the music was great. We would have liked to explore more of it. The theater was nice and comfortable.

We came on a Tuesday night after dinner to check it out. The light show ended up being just changing Christmas lights set to music on palm trees. The kids (11 and 14) said "We get it" and asked to go ahead and go. We played a round of mini golf ($7/person) beforehand and had fun. There are lots of... More

Stayed at the Wharf #905 for 3 days in order to see Jimmy Buffett after Memorial Day Weekend. We booked through Laura’s Vacation Rentals – and it was reasonably priced and the staff was easy to work with. The 2 BR / 2 BA room was clean, large, up to date with latest amenities, had free Wi-Fi, and a great... More

I would suggest avoiding this place unless you don't mind roaches, dirty floors, beds that look slept in and missing smoke detector wires hanging out of the wall. Staff had no customer service... And didn't understand why we wouldn't stay there...

Great place to dine, shop, stay and play! The condos we've stayed in both times, were exceptional. The water park area is so relaxing that I don't even miss the beach. During the day, lounging by the wave pool, sipping on a frozen drink, is the ultimate therapy to unwind. For lunch, we'll just grab a bite to eat at... More

The Wharf in Orange Beach AL is a place where you can take a quick adventure with friends, sit back and have a delicious drink at one of several bars, or experience a beautiful sunset while eating dinner out on the deck overlooking the Marina. It's neat to check out all the beautiful boats and yachts. The Wharf does a... More

Well went to the wharf today with the wife and kids. It was good but the Farris wheel was not open. It was about 12 noon and I know the night time is the best but didn't want to mess with the night life. We found some great hot sauce and me a new salt life hat so over all... More

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores. We stayed three months (Dec – Feb) at a condo on the fourth floor of The Wharf, Orange Beach on the west side of the building. My review is from a retiree’s perspective. The proximity to the Foley Beach Express was a little too close for comfort and from our balcony we... More

If your looking for something to do for New Year Eve the Wharf is a good choice. Very kid and family friendly. Close to everything (but the beach) also the "Oasis is seasonal) aka no pool for kids during off season but otherwise perfect for a New Year Eve celebration. Has free live bands, Great fireworks and light display plus... More
