Date Night Dinners Orange Beach AL
Staying at our beachfront hotel might just give you that lovin’ feeling.
If you’re in the mood for a great meal with the one you love, here are our picks for best date night dinners in Orange Beach:
Tucked away at the marina, Fisher’s boasts two options for date night diners – the more casual dockside eatery, or the upscale upstairs experience. Both menus feature fresh, local treats. If you choose to sit downstairs, we suggest the Gulf Courtbouillon (pan-seared Gulf fish smothered in Creole tomato sauce) or the buttermilk fried chicken with coleslaw and potato salad. Upstairs, start with Crispy Cauliflower and Gulf Crab Claws before proceeding to the Steak Frites or Stuffed Flounder. Both the food and the atmosphere will start your night out right.
Located at the foot of the Perdido Bay Bridge, Cobalt provides exquisite water views and delicious meals for date nights. Inside, the atmosphere is elegant and colorful. You can also choose to sit on the outdoor deck and watch the boats go by. Choose from fresh fish dishes like the Paneed Gulf Grouper over sweet pea asparagus and risotto, or delicious stone hearth pizzas. Whatever your choice, you won’t be disappointed.
Villagio Grille is located at The Wharf, a popular shopping and entertainment complex. Start with a fruit and cheese board or wood-fired oysters, before dining on elegant coastal Italian dishes like Pan Seared Divers Scallops or Brown Butter Grouper. Pair your dinner with a bottle from the extensive wine list, then stroll the Wharf. Check out the concert lineup at the amphitheater. You never know who might be playing during your visit. Really want to light up the night? Stick around for The Wharf’s free nightly sound and light show, SPECTRA.
An elegant ambiance and extensive menu make romance easy at Big Fish. Try the filet mignon, or get a big taste of the sea when you order the Hurricane dinner for two: 4oz Cold-Water Lobster Tail, Jumbo Shrimp, Diver Scallops, Blue Crab Claws & P.E.I. Mussels Poached in a Spicy Tomato Broth. (Because you should never be selfish with your shellfish.) Say ‘cheers’ with a champagne cocktail like the Strawberry Kir Royale.
If you think it’s quite romantic to sit outside on comfy couches, cocoon chairs or wooden benches, staring at the beautiful Gulf of Mexico eating food inspired by it, this place is for you. The Gulf is a super cool beach bar with a super fresh menu featuring ceviche, salads, sandwiches, tacos and more. The cocktails are handcrafted, with a great selection of wines and beers to please any palate. This is the date night for you if you’re looking for a chic yet casual spot to enjoy each other, a bite and a brew.
