The Wharf at Orange Beach Welcomes New Tenant as Record Setting Season Concludes
ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (Nov. 9, 2015)— The Wharf is announcing its new partnership with Montego’s Caribbean Café and Bar as it wraps up a record-breaking season in all sectors – including visitor numbers and amphitheater attendance.
Montego’s has joined The Wharf lineup with an anticipated February 2016 opening. The restaurant will occupy the 9,301 square feet space on the east side of Wharf Parkway with a waterfront view. The new location marks Montego’s third establishment with others located in downtown and west Mobile.
“We are very excited to become a part of The Wharf family, and are thankful to be given the opportunity to be involved with such a wonderful team,” said Montego’s owner, Brandon George. “We know our restaurant will be a great addition to what is already a great establish.”
The family-friendly restaurant has an island atmosphere with American fare. It’s known for fresh fish tacos, certified Angus beef burgers and seafood that comes straight from the Gulf. There’s something for everyone at Montego’s, and planning is already underway for a one-of-a-kind pirate ship playhouse for the kids to enjoy.
“Montego’s brings something new and unique to The Wharf,” said Kristen Guenther, management team leader at The Wharf. “We had a great season and announcing this new partnership is a great way to round out our success.”
The Wharf welcomed 1.8 million visitors this year, and 1.31 million of those occurred from May to mid-August, breaking an all-time complex record. Ferris wheel rider attendance has reached more than 84,000 to date in 2015. Event attendance across the board has grown, and The Blue Marlin Grand Championship surpassed records with a crowd of 24,492.
In its 10th season of concerts, The Wharf Amphitheater celebrated successfully with sold out shows for Florida Georgia Line, Eric Church and Jimmy Buffet.
Montego’s is one of seven recent tenant commitments, and The Wharf foresees additional growth and exceeding new records. For the latest news and updates on what’s to come at The Wharf, visit alwharf.com.
