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.

“A must!”
Reviewed August 11, 2009

Cosmo's was recommended by the owner of the Condo we rented. We tried it the 1st night and it was everything we expected. The Duck Andouille Sausage Gumbo was fantastic, I should have ordered a bowl! The crab cakes were very good, the grilled catch of the day was grouper and it was very good. Best of all was the Sushi. I can go on and on about this place. We may even go back before we leave town.

“Great restaurant with great atmosphere”
Reviewed July 26, 2009

We really enjoyed this restaurant while staying in Orange Beach. My husband and I had a Mahi salad which was very good. My daughter had sushi which she really enjoyed. Our waitress was very attentive. We sat outside on the terrace which was very nice. If you are in town on Monday night, be sure to catch Lisa Christian. She sings so well and she is very funny. She plays any request. She made our dinner so enjoyable. Little children were up dancing with parents or with each other. It was a very happy atmosphere.

“GREAT FOOD! You won't be disappointed!”
Reviewed July 9, 2009

Having grown up in New Orleans, I compare everything to the food I grew up with, which was incredible.
The duck and andouille sausage gumbo is the best gumbo you will find outside of New Orleans and may be better than some places in New Orleans. The soft shell crab with sauce was excellent and the banana fritters were out of this world! They were better than the bananas foster that I had recently at Brennan's where they invented it!

“Best Food and Atmosphere in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores”
Reviewed June 27, 2009

We were in Gulf Shores for 2 weeks and had a chance to explore all the popular restaurants. Cosmos was hands down the best - not touristy, great value, fantastic service, terrific food, super bar, great band and music throughout. The meals were well done and all came with great salads and hot bread. The beer selection was fantastic and was ice cold.

When we come back to Gulf Shores, we will skip all the gritty dives (Steamers) and tourist traps (Hangout, Lu Lus) and other places and hang here -its by far the best choice in the area. The only drawback is that it's not great for young kids like the Hangout.

“Cosmos, can't wait to go back!!”
Reviewed May 16, 2009

Having a hard time finding a place to stay in July but can't seem to make myself look at any other area, because I don't want to miss Cosmos!!! The cheese dip and pita bread were AWESOME and the muffelatta pasta, WOW!! We had a party with 4 adults and two kids. We chose to sit outside. (great choice) The waiter was excellent and the entertainment, fun. We were in no way rushed. Everyone else loved their food. I'm hoping to return in July!! We even bought T-shirts for the kids!!
