Travelers come to Florida’s 30A year after year with a long list of options for fun in mind. For some, a trip this way is all about time on the sand and in the sea while others are drawn to the charming coastal communities and opportunities to explore and shop in style. No matter how time in this scenic locale is spent, it’s likely that two things are consistently true. First, visitors will work up an appetite along the way, and second, they’ll be looking for a place to enjoy a meal that keeps the view a priority. Combine the best of both by adding these restaurants along 30a with outdoor dining options to your list of must-try destinations while you’re here.
For those visitors to Santa Rosa Beach that have a robust appetite to attend to and a desire to make the most of outdoor seating, a trip to Chanticleer Eatery is sure to please. Located at 55 Clayton Lane, Chanticleer Eatery is a cozy and welcoming locale that serves up everything from pulled pork sandwiches and steaks to triple pork nachos and calamari. From shrimp and grits to chicken and rice, dining at Chanticleer Eatery is an experience in comfort food that’s difficult to top. Take a seat on the spacious patio and be sure to pair your plate with a pineapple mojito or chocolate martini for an extra kick of flavor.
The Wine Bar
If you’re the type of traveler that looks for local labels with every stop, a trip to the Wine Bar in Watercolor is not to be missed. Located at 1735 E. County Highway 30A, The Wine Bar is a one of the best restaurants along 30a to find oneself whether it’s time to indulge in a tasting session or you can’t wait to settle into open-air seating and snack on small plates. This fine-dining stop serves up gourmet-inspired dishes that are ideal for sharing and include everything from roasted Brussels sprouts and crab cakes to pan-seared ahi tuna. Fire-roasted pizzas are also on the menu but the highlight of a stop here is the opportunity to try the red, white, and rose favorites from an extensive list of global and local labels.
