Best date night experience at the beach! Considered "coastal fine dining", you are welcome in your shorts and flip flops too! We love the Softshell cCrab, the Oysters Rockefeller and the filet. But can always be talked into the fish of the evening!

Great afternoons spent with friends and a football game on their Jumbotron! The food scene is awesome - Try "The Brad" at Duo's with a side of their sweet potato fries (or fried pickles)!

Delicious lobster quesadilla and yellowfin to start with, hands down, you have to try the Spicy Salt & Pepper Shrimp for your main dish! (the best key lime pie on 30a - so save room)

Cowgirl is one of our favorite "go tos" for breakfast or lunch. They serve a delish bloody mary! The grouper sandwich, cowgirl quesadilla and Turkey BLT with Avocado are our favorites. Across the street you can visit their "Feed + Supply" for provisions and gifts (don't leave the beach without a CK hat!).

Great brunch spot and their bloody marys are also top notch! Chef Jim Shirley is an award winning chef on the panhandle. Grits a Ya Ya and the Black and Blue salad are not to be missed. The gals at the bar will take care of you!

The BEST place for brekkie on 30a! Go for the Benton's Bacon, Egg and Cheese sandwich, if that's your thing ... or try the grain bowl. The Avo Toast is also delicious ... then take home handmade poptarts, the most beautiful bread you'll ever see and some croissants!

In the mood for a casual dinner - Seagrove Village Market is the place. CH McGee opened the Market in the late 40s and it's been a staple ever since. The jalapeno pimento dip, fried okra and gumbo are great starters, but you have to have the grouper tacos - they're the BEST around. The burgers and crab cakes are also very tasty

Great views and delicious food! The interior was beautifully designed by local, Erika Powell. The grilled meyer lemon oysters are delicious and the tuna poke is also a good choice. Their Summer Grouper will make you not want to leave the beach!

DELICIOUS Burger and salads! Casual, laid back atmosphere. Oysters are shucked in front of you at the bar and you have 6 choices - Spicy Steamed, Champagne Butter, Gruyere and Bacon, Garlic Butter, Rockefeller, and Bienville. Known for their crawfish pie, so don't miss that!

Neighborhoods

NICE DOGS, STRANGE PEOPLE - Laid-back, hippie vibe. Grayton Beach is one of the first settlements of 30a. The oldest home in Grayton Beach, dating back to the 1890s, was owned by Capt Charles Gray and is called The Wash-A-Way house. It's still standing, but has undergone many renovations (and is still being renovated today)! The famed Red Bar is located in Grayton beach and is a must see for anyone. You can also have a cold bevvie at Chiringo and go shopping at Tribe Kelley. In Grayton Uptown, you have Cracklings for breakfast, Grayton Seafood for fabulous seafood and a friendly atmosphere, and Borago for delicious Italian. Across 30a, on Logan Lane is Black Bear Bread, Chanticleer (great salads), Nanbu Noodles, Grayton Corner Cafe and the Hurricane Oyster Bar.

Upscale and great for families. "FOOW" is the new iteration of the WaterColor restaurant, Fish Out of Water, located at the Inn - Good for kids, basic beach fare (a little pricey for what you get). I prefer Chan's Wine World for a glass of rose and a lovely charcuterie. Scratch Biscuit and the Gathering Spot are also part of the WaterColor food scene.

Families have been coming to Seagrove Beach since the 40s. A lot of those families still make the trip to Seagrove with their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and stay in some of the cinderblock houses they stayed in back in the 40s. Seagrove is in the MIDDLE of everything 30a. You can find great restaurants and shopping Seagrove. Everything is within biking distance since Seagrove is just 2 miles long. For eats, check out The Perfect Pig or Seagrove Village Market for a casual dinner, Duo's at The Hub for a burger and a beer, Surfing Deer and Cafe Thirty-A for fine dining, and Khave and Kreme for ice cream! Deer Lake State Park is also located in Seagrove beach (just 1/4 mile from Cool Water Beach), and is a light hike out to the beautiful dunes and onto a less crowded beach.

Blue Mountain Beach is said to be the highest point on the Gulf of Mexico (64'). BMB is mostly residential, but has some good eateries: For the Health of It and, our favorite, Basmati's Asian Cuisine (try the Firecracker Grouper). Redd's Fueling Station is a local favorite (and sorta secret - I can't believe I'm posting this!). Blue Mabel, Redfish Taco, Local Catch, and Goatfeathers are all located in Blue Mountain Beach and are hard to beat. But the BEST BMB restaurant is the Blue Mountain Creamery!!!

One of 30a's planned "new urbanist" communities, the architecture is West Indies, Charleston, New Orleans - ish. Living in a TND (traditional neighborhood development), I can attest that the best way to see Rosemary Beach and all it has to offer is on foot. Great restaurants to try: Paradis (my favorite special date night), Pescado, Summer Kitchen, Havana Beach, la Crema (after dinner desserts and coffee), Edward's and Cowgirl Kitchen. RMB is also a great place for shopping: Check out Tracery, a home interiors shop, Bombora, Disco, Willow and Gigi's. Take in a concert or check out the farmer's market while you're there. NOTE: Golf Carts are NOT ALLOWED in RMB

Alys Beach is definitely 30a's most striking neighborhood with it's all white buildings and homes designed in the style of homes in Bermuda. As a nod to Bermuda, the "butteries" of Alys Beach stand at the property's edge. Before refrigeration (and even before ice was manufactured), homeowners in Bermuda’s hot island climate often maintained butteries, which were unattached minaret-shaped structures designed to make, store and preserve butter, milk and other perishable foods. These butteries are a great photo op for you and your friends! Alys Beach is home to very elegant shopping and some superb dining: Citizen has just opened and is a gorgeous place for cocktails and dinner. George's is a cafe with an awesome menu and great key lime pie. Raw and Juicy moved from the Airstream Row in Seaside recently and serves up delicious smoothies and bowls. Caliza Pool is great for early cocktails and dinner by one of the most beautiful pools ever created. Don't forget to visit the Alys Shoppe for Alys logo'ed items to take back home with you, MAST for home interiors and design, and NEAT Bottle Shop for wine and spirits. NEAT also has a tasting room with shareable treats and on Tuesdays from 5-7 they have live music outside.
