Is there any way to get displayed order date in the order confirmation email template? I know about {order_date} tag but it comes as unix datestamp and I have no clue how to convert it to regular date.

You need to use the format parameter. You can find the entire list of formatting codes here.

Something like:

{order_date format="%F %j %Y"}

Would output August 15 2014 if you purchased something today.
