Joseph Pawlak | December 12, 2022

What could possibly top off a vacation in a tropical oasis nestled along the Gulf of Mexico? How about a bevy of mouthwatering locales where you can truly have your “cheeseburger in paradise?”

In the lovely city of Orange Beach, there are a multitude of wonderful Orange Beach restaurants where you can soak up the laid-back, carefree beach atmosphere with a side of unbeatable down-home cooking. Continue reading on below to find out more about our recommendations for dining in Orange Beach restaurants.

Local Hotspots for Good Food and Great Times

Fisher’s at Orange Beach Marina has two restaurants housed within it: a downstairs restaurant that is family-friendly and casual, and an upstairs restaurant that is more geared toward upscale fine dining and cocktails. Both Orange Beach restaurants offer an incredible array of seafood and Southern dishes, and the upstairs restaurant is well-known for their selection of beer, wine, and cocktails.

For a Cajun-style breakfast, your best bet is Brick & Spoon. This contemporary eatery serves up Southern breakfast fare, hearty sandwiches, and excellent cocktails. Another spectacular Orange Beach restaurant with a modern-Southern twist? Cosmo’s Restaurant & Bar, which pairs Southern food with other global dishes in a colorful casual setting featuring artwork and live music.

If you’re interested in dining with a view of the water, there are a number of great Orange Beach restaurants around. Cotton’s Restaurant offers steaks and seafood in a classic wood-paneled beach house from the 1950’s, while the views and seafood at Cobalt (The Restaurant), Café Grazie, Louisiana Lagniappe, and Shipp’s Harbour Grill are sure to delight. Other seafood restaurants we would recommend? Sassy Bass Caribbean Grille and Shrimp Basket Orange Beach.

If you’re looking for a seafood fix, you can’t go wrong with Doc’s Seafood Shack & Oyster Bar! Voted one of the Top 10 Seafood Shacks in America by Fox News, this quaint food spot has served seafood gumbo, fried crab claws, golden fried oysters and more in the area for over thirty years. They truly know their way around seafood!

Serving up dishes in the American and Southern culinary tradition, Ginny Lane Bar and Grill is famous for its blackened shrimp over fried green tomatoes, pecan encrusted chicken, the creamy grits with shrimp and bacon, chicken tortellini, and their famous white chocolate bread pudding. The bread pudding recipe was actually willed to the restaurant by their pastry chef!

Not feeling seafood on Orange Beach? Luckily, you’re not entirely out of options (though we highly recommend trying some seafood anyway)! Moe’s Original Bar B Que has a casual setting and specializes in Alabama-style pulled pork and other smoked meats that are prepared in-house. Villaggio Grille has a menu of Italian and American meals, as well as special-made drinks. Hurricane Grill & Wings and Bravo Tacos will also satisfy your craving for pub-style food and Latin-American cuisine.
