I have been to Cobalt. Can you suggest another 2/3 fine dining restaurants near GS/OB with great atmosphere, wine, food and service. Thanks.

    Cosmo's on Canal Road- haven't been but family has been and HIGHLY recommend it-on Canal road on way to the Wharf, We love Live Bait at the Wharf- also Ginny Lane at the Wharf is a fav of a friend that lives down there. We also frequent Doc's- just good old fried seafood and beer-no atmosphere but good fried food, Franco's is a great Italian place-there are many places- good luck and let me know if you try any of these places-what did you think of Cobalt- heard mixed things from terrible to good

      Cobalt was very nice. Good service, good food and great view of the water. Wine list was nothing to brag about but atmosphere, food and service was outstanding. I would go back.

      Cosmo's on Canal Road is excellent. The wait can be long, so go prepared. Jesse's in Magnolia Springs has a wonderful atmosphere and the food is very good. Tin Top in Bon Secour, though I wouldn't call it fine dining, puts out some excellent food. Their steaks are top drawer.

        What about around Point Clear/Fairhope. I need to get back down there next month. Thanks.

          The Wash House used to be the class of Fairhope, but I haven't been there in quite a while. Lunch places are good in Fairhope...Sandra's, Panini Pete's and Mary Ann's all come to mind. You might also look at Ivey's in Robertsdale and Cousin Vinnie's in Daphne.

              Julwyns in Fairhope for the buffet and atmosphere. Hard to beat Sandras in Fairhope. Louisiana Lagniappe and Grazies in Orange Beach. Decent wine list at Louisiana Lagniappe also.
