HomeGulf Shores DiningCosmo’s Restaurant and Bar

Named after a rescued shelter dog, Cosmo’s Restaurant and Bar has been a local favorite for over ten years. With the same owners as other local favs Luna’s Eat & Drink, GT’s on the Bay, and Cobalt, you know things are going to be good!


The bright exterior and the bold-colored, fun, art-filled interior décor prepares you for the eclectic Southern coastal cuisine (and sushi) with a twist. Sit inside at the bar or at one of the tables, or head outside to the dog-friendly deck. Grab one of their specialty cocktails like the Momo’s Rum Runner (named after Cosmo!), head for the deck and start to relax. To help your evening get started, Happy Hour is every day from 3pm to 5pm.
