Description: Off the beaten path on Canal Road in Orange Beach, Cosmo's Restaurant & Bar is far from ordinary. Serving fresh and eclectic food since day one, Cosmo's features a wide range of dining, enticing even the most discriminate. Using chef inspired ingredients, you can enjoy everything from hand-cut steaks and local seafood to pastas and sushi. This neighborhood favorite on the Gulf Coast has taken cuisine to the cutting edge. With variations of local staples, their versions will make you sit back and take notice. Culinary greats such as the chicken roulade wrapped in bacon, the sesame seared tuna salad and the traditional crab cakes done with a twist, will have you wanting more. And to top it all off, The Year of Alabama Food named their Banana Leaf Wrapped Fish as one of "the top 100 dishes to eat before you die." This epicurean delight is just one of the many masterpieces created daily in this out-of-the-way hot spot on Alabama's Gulf Coast. In addition to serving awesome and hand-crafted dishes, Cosmo's Restaurant & Bar specializes in catering and has many unique options to serve all your needs.

“Redfish at Cosmo's... to die for”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

My wife and I always eat at Cosmo's when we visit Orange Beach at least one time each year. The place is very busy and the atmosphere is great. We also have the pecan coated redfish and it is always incredible. We waited for our table at the bar with a glass of good wine and had the fish again and it was even better than we remembered. Great job by wait staff and hostess as well.

“Excellent for happy hour”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Stopped in Cosmos late into happy hour, greeter was very friendly, bartender Zack busy as he was always had a smile and cheerful chat. Had an original Cosmos and the Phily Roll, both excellent and very pocket friendly at $3 and $5 respectively.
After a couple of days of the usual swill several of the strip places pass off as food, Cosmos is a welcome change and one of the best restraunts on this part of the gulf.
Going back for dinner.

“Excellent, but pricey”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Very excellent food and service, liked that Cosmo's is a bit upscale, but at the same time pretty casual. My wife and I both had the pecan encrusted red fish, it was fantastic. Two fish dinners and one cocktail each was $85., so be ready for that.
