Trip advisor did us right again. First time to Orange Beach & loved Cosmos. Crab cakes were mostly crab & delicious. Shared a salad & fried shrimp/fish/oysters with my spouse- all great. Excellent service with Corey😃

Lunch menu is excellent including a good sushi selection. Cosmos is situated in a courtyard with outside seating. Server was attentive. You really cannot go wrong here either at lunch or dinner. They also have an excellent "happy hour" menu with drink and appetizer deals.

This colorfully decorated restaurant with a rescue dog theme (get Cosmo's story from the wait-staff!) is lovely! They have everything from seafood to sushi and everything we had was fresh and delicious! The service was fast and friendly and there is a cute gift shop if you need to wait for a table. Indoor and outdoor seating, good specialty drinks,... More

First visit, won't be the last. Busy, busy spot on a rainy day. Went early to avoid the crowds. Wrong! Super busy at 5:00. Nice place and service. Excellent kitchen. Food was well prepared and served quickly for the number of customers. Great food and drink. Try the calamari as it is excellent. Had the best fettuccine I've ever had.

Thanks to tripadvisor we w$14 off of $35 or more excluding tax, tip & alcohol. All is Great from the Bread & Salad to the drinks and main coarse. Find out for yourself how Great this Restaurant & Bar really is. Snow Birds do get a deal without fighting the Summer crowds & enjoy lower rates in housing as well.

Crab Claws (Market Price, it was $19 in November) can be “bbq” in a creole butter sauce or fried and served with cocktail sauce. Since I had them fried at Wolf Bay Lodge, I decided to try the “bbq”-style this time. The crab claws were sweet and fresh just like I had them at the Olympic Shellfish processing facility. The...

Great food, great service, great spot! Dinner out with friends while we were in town for a conference. Tried to eat here last year for lunch, but the wait was too long. We had firecracker shrimp and calamari for appetizers, both good, all had different entrees (grilled grouper, fried shrimp, pecan redfish & catfish) all of which were very good,... More

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.
