Food Favorites
Elevated Mexican food. Our favorites are the table-side guac, fajitas, (anything from the happy hour menu!), quesadilla, and the apple pie. They also make fantastic cocktails! Sit on the patio if it's a nice day/evening.

High-end Coastal Italian. We love the entire menu but some favorites are the Pocket Bread as a starter, Fettuccini Nero and Grouper if they have it. The gelato is homemade and is a great treat with an espresso!

So many, many reasons! Seaside is totally iconic and was the film location for the movie "The Truman Show". There are some great airstream trailers to get food from, wonderful shops, events, etc.

They have an excellent happy hour sometimes. Really nice place to sit outside and enjoy a charcuterie board and a beverage. Kids are welcome and the menu has a wide range of foods!

Grilled cheese truck from an airstream trailer! We love the Brie and bacon on cranberry walnut bread. If you're really craving something home-style, the meatloaf melt is bomb.com.

This is Stacey's favorite restaurant - it's on the Harbour and has amazing views. The food is Southern refined and everything is homemade. Dave loves the burger (bacon jam, hello?) and Stacey loves the Crunchy Yardbird Sammy - extra buttermilk dressing. The shaker salad is also really delicious, especially when you add a piece of fresh caught grouper.

If you came to SRB and didn't go to the Donut Hole, were you even here at all? Classic diner food and huge portions. Donuts sell out by 10am during high season here. There are two lines usually, a donut to-go line and an eat-in line. Don't be intimidated if the line is out the door, it moves pretty quickly. Our favorites are the omelettes, the chef salad and the burger.

Sort of a hidden gem here. Lulu's is owned by Jimmy Buffet's sister! There is a huge outdoor area on the Bay with lots of play activities that would keep kids busy. If you have food allergies, this place has an extensive allergy friendly menu if you ask for it.

Simple menu. Best Key Lime Pie ever. I'd suggest looking up the menu online before going if you have a picky eater because the menu is small. But so delicious. Portions are also huge.

PIzzas are super delicious, as are the salads and cannoli. Hot Tip: if you like really crispy pizza, order multiple smaller pizzas instead of a large pizza. They do have gluten-free crust as well.

Love everything about Clean Juice and if you're staying at our listing "The Ginger Jar" in Sandestin, this place is within golf cart distance at The Market Shops. The Beauty Bowl is a favorite, but everything is good. Great alternative to ice cream!

Located in the Market Shops of Sandestin, this is a great breakfast/brunch spot. Classic Southern breakfast/lunch fare and all really delicious. The cinnamon roll biscuit is one of our favorite items and so are the breakfast bowls with cheese grits.

We visit Eden Gardens multiple times a year for a picnic or walk. Cost is only $3/per vehicle to get access into the park. You can tour the historic mansion for an additional fee too. There are picnic tables down by the Bay and it's an excellent view!

Spa
This is where the locals go when they want major pampering. Whatever treatment you book be sure to give yourself extra time to enjoy all the amenities - the Himalayan salt room is a fun bonus!

Saturday mornings, Seaside is the place to be. The farmers market is a great place to stock-up on baked goods, produce, etc. Things sell out quickly so we recommend going early. *tip* Go to Modica Market Grocery Store first and get a mimosa to drink while you shop the farmers market.

Good artistic outlet during your stay. Mary Hong is a true gem. She's a local artist who works with glass and resin to make stunning pieces. Her shard shop in Destin or Grayton Beach is a fun activity if you'd like to try your hand at the craft.
