This hidden gem is a local favorite! Goatfeathers Seafood Restaurant has been serving up delicious coastal cuisine since 1988. Their menu is reasonably priced and features scallops, oysters, grouper, shrimp, fish of the day, and more. They are also famous for their homemade sauces and soups. If you are running short on time, you can even order fresh catches to go from their seafood markets on Santa Rosa Beach or Seagrove Beach. The restaurant is open every day from 11 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Stinky's Fish Camp:

When you dine at Stinky's Fish Camp, you are in for a very special treat! They offer a wide array of Gulf-to-table dishes, but their oysters are best-sellers. Enjoy a plate of freshly shucked oysters, dig into the catch of the day, or indulge in a bowl of the famous Stinky’s Stew. No matter what you order, we guarantee that you won’t leave hungry! They are open Sunday from 10 a.m. - 9 p.m., Monday - Thursday from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m., and Friday - Saturday from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m.

Find a table indoors or enjoy panoramic views of Eastern Lake from the screened-in porch. The restaurant also features a full-service bar, multiple big-screen TVs, and a diverse menu. While their sushi is second-to-none, their fish tacos and fully-loaded gumbo are not to be missed. Old Florida Fish House is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. On Fridays and Saturdays, they are open until midnight.

Known for their “Grayt Food and Tall Tales,” Grayton Seafood Company is another one of our favorites. They are committed to using only the freshest ingredients, and the quality is reflected in each mouthwatering dish.
