Orange Beach Travel Guide

While spending the past week in Orange Beach, I thought it might be a fun idea to create a travel guide! My parents have had a place in Orange Beach for about 10 years, so we have become familiar enough with the area for me to share some of the best places (in our opinion) down there. If you have anything to add, please be sure to leave a comment at the end of the post!

Our Favorite Restaurants

Florabama Yacht Club-the Greek shrimp nachos and chargrilled oysters are 2 of our favorites!


Ole River Grill- another Florabama restaurant with delicious seafood

Cobalt- this is where Ebie and Patrick's wedding reception was! Delicious food with beautiful views.


Tacky Jacks- you must get the Mexican Garbage (the best nachos!)

Cosmos- good seafood and dog friendly. Parker and I went for lunch one day and split a few delicious appetizers- sautéed crawfish tails, crab claws, and firecracker shrimp. We also like their sushi, but they don't start serving it until after 3 on weekdays.


Master Joe's- best. sushi. ever. The sushi pizza is a winner even if you're not a huge sushi fan. It is so unique and delicious!


Sunset Grill- we ate here for our last dinner at the beach. We got the grouper bites as an appetizer and all highly suggest them.


Anchor Bar & Grill- my mom and dad kept talking about how amazing this place is! I've never been but hope to go next time I'm down there.

Brick & Spoon- Best brunch

Cactus Cantina-Best Mexican at Orange Beach

Lulus- fun atmosphere and delicious Krispey Kreme bread pudding! (actually in Gulf Shores)

Acme Oyster House- most delicious seafood restaurant at the beach! (actually in Gulf Shores)


The Wharf- perfect place for the whole family! You can find shops, restaurants, a movie theater, an amphitheater, Dippin Dots, and daiquiris here!

SanRoc Cay- an entertainment district with several cute little local shops and restaurants

Tanger Outlets- perfect rainy day activity! The outlets are actually located in Foley, but not too bad of a drive from Orange Beach.

Places to Go for a Fun Atmosphere and Good Drinks



Florbama Yacht Club

The Hangout

The Wharf

The Gulf

Fun Places to Go by Boat

Pirate's Cove-for the best cheeseburger & bushwhacker in town; a little dirty, but always a good time! dog friendly

Florabama Yacht Club-a cleaner Pirate's Cove that allows dogs and always has live music

Sunset Grill-for a delicious meal on the water 

Ono Island- just to drive around and look at beautiful houses

What am I missing? I know there are so many more things I could add to this list, but these are our favorites! Thanks so much for reading! Have a great day!
