i am heading down to orange beach for business next week and am in search of a casual seafood restaurant with a good bar. i will be dining alone and will probably be eating at the bar. a good beer selection would be nice too.

thanks

      Cosmo's is outstanding. There's a nice big bar as well as outside dining under the umbrella. Good place. Good luck.

      Cosmo's Restaurant and Bar @ 25753 Canal Rd., Orange Beach, AL 251 - 948 - 9663.

        Gulf Shores Steamer.

        Sit out at one of the picnic tables with a pail of Royal Red shrimp and a pitcher of beer. It's almost perfect.

            I second the Gulf Shores Steamer. It's wonderful.

            Good luck. Oil is already coming ashore from the BP well.

              Glad you are having a nice trip. Cosmo's is nice. But GS Steamer is outstanding too. Have a safe trip home. Good luck.

                GS Steamer was great for lunch. i may have to go back for dinner. Jeff, the owner, is also very nice

                      Louisiana Lagniappe is great. It is in Sanroc Cay close to Perdido.
