Love the Wharf with all the restaurants, shopping, and movie theater. The light show is spectacular with the palm trees dancing to the music. All ages dancing to the tunes familiar to us. Great place for families

We took the grand kids over primarily for the ferris wheel and ice skating just after Thanksgiving. The weather was in the 70's and perfect for November, we walked around the shops and the kids had a great time. Terrific family atmosphere for all ages including a couple of great ice cream shops.

We live locally (around 45 minutes away) and usually only come to the Wharf for events such as concerts or shows. But we always book a hotel nearby so we can spend the whole day and night here. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, and bars for anyone and everyone. A must stop for tourist.

The concept is simple enough, plan a community where you have a little bit of everything for everybody. Condos,hotels, amusements, dining, and my wife's favorite,shopping. It all comes together very nicely here at the Wharf. Stop on by for awhile. Benches nicely placed along shopping area for hose of us who also serve and wait.

The Wharf is a large complex with a theater, large marina, Ferris wheel, several restaurants, condos to rent or buy, all kinds of shops, an outdoor bar, local musicians, and light shows. It is like an open air mall with great landscaping. You can shop, eat, enjoy a movie, get an ice cream cone and sit, listen to music, and... More

A visit to Orange Beach always includes several stops at The Wharf. Amazing shopping center where there is always something fun happening. Shopping for a diverse array of goods, clothes, household, gifts, shoes, you name it! But my favorite place to eat a terrific lunch and get a latte and pastry is The Southern Grind. Locally owned and operated, you... More

Consider it OB's headquarters or entertainment district. Putt-putt, concerts, light shows, Ferris wheel, movie theater, shopping, fitness, and food! Great seasonal attractions and events. Must see, and stay informed. Always something fun going on. Locals and tourists flock here for weeknight and weekend fun for all.

We saw the wonderful movie "Hidden Figures" at the Wharf Carmine 15 on Sunday. Nice theater although they screwed up which movie was in which theater in the beginning. It had comfortable seats and good popcorn. The temperature was good also - often I am too cold in many theaters so this was a pleasant surprise especially since it was... More

We had a blast here. Since it was during Christmas my daughter and I were the only ones playing laser tag and bazooka! What a blast!
