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.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

We have eaten here many times over the past few years as we vacationed at Orange Beach. It is the only restaurant we make sure we visit every single time and sometimes more than once. The food is always delicious and fresh. The crab cakes are delicious. The daily chocolate dessert is always a treat. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant.

“Fantastic gem!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

The hour and a half wait was well worth the opportunity to dine at this family friendly restaurant. We enjoyed the breezy air outside on the patio with cocktails in hand and live music in the background. Once seated, the crab claws and shrimp were a fantastic treat! All of our entrees were amazing and the staff was very attentive and full of fabulous information about the menu. I highly recommend!!!

“One of Orange Beach's Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

Went for a late lunch/early dinner at 4pm. No waiting - not crowded. I was surprised by the menu that ranged from sandwiches, to sushi, to banana leaf wrapped sea bass. I decided on the sea bass and was told it is on the "100 things you should eat in Alabama before you die" list. It was excellent! Then for dessert I couldn't resist ordering the praline bread pudding with whiskey sauce. It was an enormous portion and to absolutely die for! I highly recommend this great little place!

“Very good food and great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

We had the firecracker shrimp, they were really good. The cheese dip was the best I've ever had. My daughter and her friend had pasta and it was excellent and my husband and I split several different sushi rolls. They were all very good. We went early at 4:30 with no wait. The place was full when we left. The service was fantastic. A bit pricey but it was very good. I would go back again.

“Great restaurant and great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

Cosmo's is a wonderful restaurant off the beaten path. The dog-themed decor was a bonus. The wait staff was friendly/helpful and the food delightful. The sushi was good, as was the fresh seafood items on the menu. Plan to arrive early unless you have 60-90 to kill while wating for a table. Groups of six or more usually require a bit of a wait regardless of the time your arrive. I visit each time I'm in the Grulf Shores/Orange Beach area.
