Seafood
Adorned with linen draperies, antique cypress tables, an onyx bar top lit from the bottom and incredible light fixtures, Fisher’s Upstairs is upscale and beautiful yet very comfortable. The floors themselves are unique in detail made from reclaimed heart pine floors from the Godchaux Sugar Mill mule barn, built in 1892 in Raceland, LA. Upstairs’ white linen tablecloths, fine wines and a constantly evolving menu is just as pleasing indoors as it is outdoors where you’ll be dining among the yachts watching the sun slip past the horizon. Orange Beach Marina is one of the most incredible marinas in the country – it is gorgeous, and we are right in the heart of it.

Chef Bill Briand's seasonally inspired menu celebrates local ingredients and his Louisiana heritage. In addition to its breathtaking design and culinary excellence from Gulf Coast seafood to steak, Fisher’s Upstairs offers craft cocktails at two stunning bars, and a carefully curated wine list produced by Sara Kavanaugh.

A beautiful dinner with a wonderful friend. Our server was friendly, efficient, and very attentive. Starters were green goddess salad and gumbo, both delicious. For entrees, I had the shrimp stuffed quail, and my friend had red snapper. Both dishes were lovely in presentation and prepared perfectly. Dinner ended with triple chocolate cheesecake. I highly recommend Fisher’s!

Late reservation last night but honestly disappointed from cocktails to the food

Service was fantastic - food lacked basics - salt and pepper and the kitchen fired the food way early and it sat in the window dying and was served w apps on the table still and to the wrong positions

Been a while since dining here - had high hopes but today speaking with others who have eaten here more recent they all said the same things - salt being the number one out of all of their mouths

This was our 50th wedding anniversary. Even though it wasn’t in the drink menu, the chocolate martinis were perfect. The scallops and risotto were perfect; not overcooked and very favorable. Service at the bar and our waitress was outstanding. We’ll be back!!

This restaurant is adorable. Tucked on top of the marina, it has a great vibe inside. The staff was friendly and our waitress efficient. The food was fantastic- the crawfish beignets were delicious as were the short rib and pork belly appetizers. We enjoyed the gumbo, but The grouper appetizer was bland - I wouldn’t order it again. We had the quail and it was cooked perfectly. Both the triple chocolate cheese cake and the créeme brûlée were to die for. We will definitely be back.

First let me say that our server “Jordan” was spectacular. Secondly let me tell you the fresh fish of the day was Red Snapper served with a bed of fresh black eyed peas in a smoky beurre blanc broth with a side of blue cheese foam 😋 Who does this? It was hands down the BEST meal ever👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

We’ve come to expect a great experience and Fishers delivered again. Our server, Madelyn, was outstanding…every ask was assuringly accommodated with grace. The entree special was superb with all the extras. We were outdoors in fabulous October weather and managed with two small children. Just an outstanding birthday celebration at Fishers. Thank You!

We have been to Fisher's Upstairs many times. The food is always exemplary. The service is usually good; this time it was not. Our ticket says our server was Samuel. We proceeded to order drinks and salads and then a bottle of Etna Rossa with dinner. A good wine and appropriately priced. Our server then regaled us with his story that he learned about wines after drinking boxes of it on the beach. Amusing. He then suggested we upgrade to a $200 bottle of wine: 'his favorite' he said. We had not asked for his advice and politely declined. Shortly later he came back to tell us about another of 'his favorites' that was also in the $200 price range. He also said it was his goal to finally go to Italy or France sometime because of the wines. Well - we have been to the latter more than a dozen times and the former more than 25 times and almost bought a vineyard there last year. We declined this upgrade request as well; so he let us eat our salads with our menus on our laps. In fact, when he came back the third time and told us about another of 'his favorites', I lost it. Explained to him that he does not even know what he does not know and we are not taking unsolicited wine and meal advice from someone that has just recently read the comic book or seen the YouTube video. He absolutely ruined the evening. We had been there multiple times but our guests had not. This is clearly a management issue: if the dinner party is not asking for advice, they may not need it. And stop the servers from telling us what 'their favorites' are: if we wanted them to join us for dinner, we would have expanded the reservation by one.

The appetizers were great, crawfish beignets and gumbo. Entrees well prepared but my food was cold when served. Not surprised with restaurant business difficulties.
Dessert good, something key lime in a Mason jar. Would go again.

We made a reservation but were delayed 20 minutes. Bar staff was superb, but wait staff not so much. 3 in our party ordered special which was the red snapper. The fish was good, but the sauce not so much. When at the beach, seafood dishes should be memorable.

From start to finish was very disappointing. Our server was very forgetful. Had to ask for ice 4 times. No cornbread was offered even after we asked. No birthday celebration even after we asked. Very very dissatisfied. When I made reservations I put bday celebration

The main complaint I have is the bland taste of all the food. Honestly, nothing was seasoned at all. I had heard good things about upstairs and liked the fact that they took reservations ( almost no restaurant on OB does which is annoying). The place itself is beautiful, however I was very shocked at the lack of any seasoning to any of the food. After spending over $400 for four of us, I have to say it was a very disappointing experience.

The food was very good service was outstanding. Very limited options for the entrees. Filet, Cath of the day, Scallops, Pork chops, Duck and Quail. Nothing really caught our eye since we had filet the night before. We went with a couple apps and salads - The dressing on fried oyster salad was vinegar based and way over powered the food.

Impeccable service, perfect atmosphere… serene colors, calming decor, lovely quiet dining room with appropriate background music, and the food was amazing. We started with crawfish beignets and a crisp green salad with shaved radishes with perhaps the best green goddess dressing I’ve ever tasted. I had the scallops with caramelized cauliflower (a delicious medley with some red onion, tomatoes and maybe a hint of garlic). My husband had the grouper with a black bean, creamed sweet corn concoction, topped with perfectly dressed greens. Dessert was perhaps the best “old school” creme brulee I’ve ever had… you know the kind you have to crack the perfectly caramelized sugar top with the back of your spoon…and a delicious dark chocolate cheese cake with a tawny port. Mia, our server, couldn’t have been any better…perfectly timed delivery of each course, always available and attentive without hovering. One of the top 5 overall dining experiences I’ve ever had.
