Captain Troy’s Top Seafood Restaurant Picks:

1.  Fisherman’s Corner – 13486 Perdido Key Dr., Pensacola, Fl. 32507 – Phone 850-791-6914.   This restaurant is located just 10 minutes east of Orange Beach in Innerarity Point (Perdido Key) underneath the bridge.   They have fresh seafood daily an when it’s gone, it’s gone.  The atmosphere is rustic and the building is not fancy.  However, the food is awesome.  Park where you can.

2.  Cosmo’s Restaurant – 25753 Canal Rd, Orange Beach, Al 36561 – Phone 251-948-9663   This restaurant is located in the fish camp landing complex in the heart of Orange Beach.  Their seafood and sushi is pretty incredible.   Cosmo’s is a local favorite.

3.  Big Fish Restaurant Bar – 25814 Canal Rd., Orange Beach, Al 36561 – Phone 251-981-5516.  This restaurant is located in a strip mall on Canal road, but that doesn’t mean a thing.  This restaurant’s outside appearance of being in a strip mall will fool you, but when you walk inside, it’s amazing.  Big Fish is a favorite of locals who like a quality meal and a casual atmosphere.
