Seaside, FL coastal dinner options

After an exciting day on the beach treat yourself to local favorite dining restaurants or grab a quick bite to eat at one of many world-class gourmet food trucks located on Scenic Highway 30A. South Walton’s oldest restaurant and favorite gathering spot, Bud and Alley’s has been serving locals and tourists for twenty-five years and is the perfect middle ground between fine Gulf view dining and simply having a great time with family and friends. The two also offer a Taco Bar and Pizza Bar. Over the years Bud and Alley’s has helped make Seaside, FL what it is today.

Great Southern Cafe, 45 Central and The Meltdown (on airstream row) are operated by acclaimed chef Jim Shirley. Southern specialties come with a twist in these hot spots that give classic recipes a modern spin.

Another favorite among locals and tourists is Pickles Beachside Grill, a beach-side original for over twenty-four years located in the heart of Seaside, FL. The walk-up diner, known as “The World-Famous Pickles.” Burgers, Hot-dogs, Famous Fried Pickles and Savory Signature Sandwiches is only steps from the shore facing 30A, making it a prime people watching location. Walk in for lunch or dinner and causally order over the counter. You will know you are in the correct spot by the amazing aroma of fried pickles in the air.

Other popular must try spots include Barefoot BBQ and Amavida Coffee. Barefoot BBQ is a retro surf style laid-back atmosphere where you can enjoy the best air streamed housed BBQ. Amavida Coffee and Tea is an importer, roaster, and purveyor of Organic and Fair Trade specialty coffees.
