By far my favorite restaurant on GULF Shores. Enjoyed the outside seating but you can sit inside as well. The food was really good and the presentation was very good. We had blackened swordfish. Wedge salad and Gulf Shrimp for appetizer.. we shared this plate and it was more than enough for the two of us. Great server, named Drew

3 to 5 is happy hour, sit on the large deck overlooking the lagoon and just relax, in April they had $2.00 draft beer .75 cent oysters and some other happy hour specials, the ambiance is great and the service is good.

We rode our bikes and they didn't mind us locking them up out front. Nice view. The red snapper special was good but the pineapple rice pilaf it was on top of was excellent. Good salad and fries too and yummy drinks. Not much for vegetarians to choose from.

Great location, beautiful water views. Food is always good with great service. The fish "tank" is always a fun attraction. Only improvement would be better desserts. The only one we have ever had, couldn't finish and threw it away.

We had heard wonderful things about Cobalt so we decided to have our first dinner of the week there and it didn't disappoint! We sat outside on a beautiful evening. We had wonderful food and service.

Cobalt is happening, partially because the setting is great (at a marina), partially due to the very large capacity of the restaurant, and mostly because of good food and good service. It is going on there, and in a good way. A definite YES.

We just visited Cobalt tonight. We have been going to this restaurant since its opening, but tonight was the last time that we will ever dine here. First, I ordered a glass of wine, and the glass that I received was a very small pour. I was surprised that it was such small amount of wine, but I did not... More

Heard a lot of great things about this place - some of the expectations were met, other fell far short. I am a consultant in the hospitality industry, and understand guest service. What was really good at Cobalt: - Outside dining was great - right on the water - music from next door, and great weather the day we were... More

Beautiful views and excellent service. In fact our waiter may have been a little too attentive. We had crab and shrimp dip as an appetizer and fried oysters and shrimp and grits for entrees. Too full for desert. The only complaint I have is our adult beverages were very weak.

Our best meal in Orange Beach. The menu had lots of great items. The service was excellent. We even saw dolphins while eating lunch outside.
