Dinner at the Sugar Shack was perfect during the short rain shower. Service was as expected and the food far exceeded what you would expect. We were very glad we stopped in. Dining was very casual. They have a wide variety of deserts and candy as well.

We went in the late evening for the Ferris wheel and grab some drinks, however most restaurants close at 9-10pm. Being a tourist area I expected a 10:30 - 11pm closing time, you know for drinks. I really like the synchronized music/light show.

We were looking to see and do something different for the evening as we were water logged between the beach and the rain. It was a well kept place with some nice stores. The light and music show was cool with the palm trees. They have a huge Ferris wheel. Worth seeing.

Wishing we had taken more time to check this out. The Ferris wheel was being worked on but the light show and the music was great. We would have liked to explore more of it. The theater was nice and comfortable.

We came on a Tuesday night after dinner to check it out. The light show ended up being just changing Christmas lights set to music on palm trees. The kids (11 and 14) said "We get it" and asked to go ahead and go. We played a round of mini golf ($7/person) beforehand and had fun. There are lots of...

Stayed at the Wharf #905 for 3 days in order to see Jimmy Buffett after Memorial Day Weekend. We booked through Laura’s Vacation Rentals – and it was reasonably priced and the staff was easy to work with. The 2 BR / 2 BA room was clean, large, up to date with latest amenities, had free Wi-Fi, and a great...

I would suggest avoiding this place unless you don't mind roaches, dirty floors, beds that look slept in and missing smoke detector wires hanging out of the wall. Staff had no customer service... And didn't understand why we wouldn't stay there...

Great place to dine, shop, stay and play! The condos we've stayed in both times, were exceptional. The water park area is so relaxing that I don't even miss the beach. During the day, lounging by the wave pool, sipping on a frozen drink, is the ultimate therapy to unwind. For lunch, we'll just grab a bite to eat at...

The Wharf in Orange Beach AL is a place where you can take a quick adventure with friends, sit back and have a delicious drink at one of several bars, or experience a beautiful sunset while eating dinner out on the deck overlooking the Marina. It's neat to check out all the beautiful boats and yachts. The Wharf does a...

Well went to the wharf today with the wife and kids. It was good but the Farris wheel was not open. It was about 12 noon and I know the night time is the best but didn't want to mess with the night life. We found some great hot sauce and me a new salt life hat so over all...

“Can't beat for seeing a concert at the Amphitheater - it's right across the street”

“I have stayed in many of these condos. I love 525 and 901 the corner units are great for large groups and most of them have a bonus room.”

“If you are staying during a concert expect to hear the music from the amphitheater. That may be a turn off to some but we enjoyed hearing the music. Staying on the second or third floors is easier to navigate with the parking garage but a stay on any floor is really no problem.”
