Looking for everything from amazing shopping and delicious dining to elegant Orange Beach event space? Cosmo’s Courtyard has got you covered! You’ll find a whole day’s worth of enjoyment when you visit.
Cosmo’s Restaurant & Bar is the neighborhood favorite for locals and guests alike in Orange Beach, and one of the best restaurants on the Alabama Gulf Coast. The restaurant’s open-air deck makes a wonderful place to get some lunch and enjoy the best Happy Hour on the island served daily from 3 to 5 p.m. (in season). For dinner, try the Chicken Roulade, Crab Cakes, a hand-cut steak or their Firecracker Shrimp, a local favorite that made them famous. There is truly something for everyone. Afterwards, step across the deck to Maggie’s Bottle & ‘Tail.
Across the deck from Cosmo’s Restaurant & Bar you will find Maggie’s Bottle & Tail, a quaint and unique shop featuring jewelry and artwork from local artists. Maggie’s features merchandise for both Cosmo’s and dog lovers alike on items such as hats, shirts and koozies. In addition, they offer an extensive selection of wine and beer allowing patrons to build their own six-pack from a wide assortment of craft beer, while wine lovers will enjoy the incredible bargains on many high quality labels seldom found in other venues.
Hidden in Maggie’s Bottle & Tail is the endearing Maggie’s Parlor providing a nostalgic charm to enhance your tasting experience. Let the Maggie’s staff guide you to the perfect pairing. After, be sure to stay a while in Maggie’s Bottle & Tail, and find something unique to take home. Year after year guests return to Maggie’s to get that special wine or beer that they just can’t find at home. It has been a tradition for many wine and beer enthusiasts. Ask for a curated tour of the red and white wine rooms, fill a growler or crowler from our tasty draft beer selection or build you own six-pack from the hundreds of beers available as singles. Maggie’s Parlor offers monthly pairing and dinner events, as well as, availability for private events. Sorry, no one under 21.
Next door, fresh seafood meets soulful, Southern goodness at Luna’s Eat & Drink. Guests can experience coastal fare and home town favorites. Luna’s also offers 32 craft beers on tap and large screen TVs, perfect for relaxing and watching your favorite sporting events.
