Dining in 30A

1. Thirty-A
3899 East Co Highway 30A #30A, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459

Review: “Everything was excellent. From the martini, to the duck confit sliders, to the butterfish entrée — and the chocolate molten cake. Service was great too! Love it. Always go when in town.”

2. Louis Louis
35 Mussett Bayou Rd Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459

Review: “My family’s annual trip to Destin wouldn’t be complete within dining at Louis Louis. The menu doesn’t change much year after year, but why mess with such a great thing? The restaurant’s namesake is always there to greet you with a colorful shirt and smile. Be sure to sample one of the homemade desserts. Highly recommended!”

3. Stinky’s Fish Camp
5994 W County Hwy 30A Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459

Review: “Positively delicious. every last bit of it. The “boudin” ball appetizer is SO good and their fish was perfection. My husband had fried Amber Jack and I went with the grilled swordfish and both were fantastic. The whole meal was so good that we went back again a couple of days later for a late lunch/early dinner so that we could get back on the beach for the sunset without having to worry about beating a dinner crowd. Well worth doing it that way, as normal dinner time wait time can be 1.5+ hours. Free valet parking though, which was nice. we’ll definitely go back!

4. Vue on 30A
4801 County Road 30A, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459

Review: “One of the best because it is the whole package. Beautifully decorated, stunning views from the bluff to the gulf, great service, very good choice and preparation of food and reasonably priced for all of this. This trip we both ordered the “whole fried snapper. It was very good. Snapper is yum! It is a large portion so you could share it. Do not miss eating here. The value is tremendous. It is one of the best overall restaurants on 30A, which is known for its culinary offerings.”

5. The Bay
24215 Hwy 331 S Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459

Review: “Since this restaurant is on the bay, many visitors to 30A do not think about it. Big mistake. This is probably tied for my favorite restaurant south of the bay. The view of the bay and the bridge is very nice, but you will very pleasantly surprised at how good the food is and at a good value. If you are looking for great food, great service, great musical events, and THE BEST dessert in Santa Rosa Beach…you need to come here. Make sure you save room for the peanut butter pie. Oh My! Don’t miss this place…you will have one of your best meals here.”

All reviews were taken from “Trip Advisor” dated as of June 2015.
