Friendly attentive staff, food is top end and beautifully presented. Try one of their new island menu selections; husband loved his burger choice. Best crème Brule I've ever had!

A great location next to the Perdido Pass. Stunning views. The menu has a few hits and a few misses. Firecracker shrimp is a hit. Pecan crusted catfish is a big miss. The indoor seating area is very noisy--you may find yourself shouting at your table guests. The outdoor seating area lacks shade, so time your visit accordingly.

Great lunch at Cobalt! Everyone ordered different meals from fish sandwich to burgers and all were equally pleased with our food. Dessert was great and loved the bakery located in the front of the restaurant! Cookies are delicious! Will definitely come back when In the area.

We wish we would have know it was more of a nightclub loud music atmosphere before we brought a group of 6 peopel for dinner this past Tuesday. Apparently Tusdays are loud band and dancing nights (although the band would have ben Ok if we were here for dancing and not to have nice dinner). But the Happy hour must... More

Great sea food. I actually brought in my catch from earlier that day and they cooked it for me! The crab claws are excellent.

Food is outstanding. The view is perfect. Our waiter Jack was very pleasant. They had a couple playing music which just set the mood even more. You can choose from menu or eat off a brunch buffet on Sunday.

Four of us had lunch here on a monday. Two of us had the grilled amberjack sandwich, another the grilled pompano, and my wife the blackened tuna salad. The sandwiches were very good and came with fries and a pickle. The pompano was good, came with the skin on, and was a little fishy (as pompano tends to be). The... More

Had a late lunch at Cobalt on a perfect November afternoon. Sat on the outside terrace and were able to see dolphins cavorting in the bay. Happy hour starts at 2 pm and the firecracker shrimp was a terrific appetizer and the Happy Hour price of $5 can't be beat. Drink specials are also a bargain. Lunch specials were swordfish... More

As a connoisseur of breakfast buffets, this one was not so impressive. I was looking forward to the shrimp and grits and was sorely disappointed in that (over spiced and gloppy) AND the eggs benedict, and "French toast" - NOT. Of redeeming value was the miniature flan and mini brownies. But we did not go there for the mini desserts...we... More
