Food and service was fantastic .5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining!Cafe Thirty-A was outstanding. The food and service were excellent. A very enjoyable dining experience.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCafe Thirty-A is a MUST whenCafe Thirty-A is a MUST when visiting the Beaches of South Walton!!!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!Went to Cafe Thirty-A for the first time tonight and am already trying to plan our next visit. Everything we had was absolutely delicious. The oven-roasted grouper was AMAZING! Beet salad - wonderful! Banana beignets - heavenly! All for a very reasonable price - I honestly would have expected a dinner of this caliber to cost at least 1 1/2 times what it did. I cannot wait to go back!!!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day DinnerOur experience at Cafe 30A was very good. The waiter Alex was very attentive and he took very good care of our party of 6. The food was great and overall it was a very nice dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodAs usual, the food was excellent. Always a great place on the beach. Big city quality and taste in smaller town atmosphere.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good choiceWhen we come down to the Grayton area every year we always go to Cafe Thirty-A. Over the past 10 years or so, many restaurants have made our list of places to eat during the week but have been knocked off by a new find. Its safe to say Cafe Thirty-A will still be on the list in another 10 years.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Once AgainWe vacation in this area every year and never miss going to Cafe 30A. It is one of the premier spots in the area. We normally go for a seafood dish, but this time my wife and I both had steaks which were superb. And, as usual, the bread pudding dessert was to die for. Great service, great drinks, great wine--great time.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgood foodThis was the best dinner we had on our trip this year. The steak was outstanding and the grits are one of a kind. We come here every year on our annual food show trip and always look forward to eating here!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFour rated excellent!We all enjoyed our salads and main courses here. Ate here a year ago when we were down and enjoyed it just as much this time. Crab cake,creamy grits, steak, banana beignets- everything was great!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite in SeagroveOther restaurants in area are OK. Thirty-A is outstanding.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBOGO entree 5-6pmBOGO hour and tues thurs 5$ martini from 5 pm on makes this place a must. Great food, fresh fish and an amazing New York strip. The martinis were delicious and tall.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed our meal &Really enjoyed our meal & the whole experience. Fantastic waiter. One of our top picks for restaurants in the South. We will come back!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service is fitThe food and service is fit for the King and Queen. First time I have seen lobster tails as a side item on the menu. Add it to Lobster and Paradise and you will not need desert.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMalways goodwe love cafe 30-a, it's in our neighborhood and we love going there. this time we tried a couple of cocktails off their martini menu - i had the strawberry basil, it was delicious and not sweet at all - the fresh basil added a nice element - my husband had the cucumber martini and said it was different but really great - cafe 30a has several dining areas - an enclosed porch, which is very nice - this is where we were on may 4th - our waiter was excellent, she as attentive but unobtrusive, something we just love and our meal was outstanding! my husband said the lobster and mac & cheese with crawfish was sublime and he is very very picky - my cobia was to perfection and as the cobia season is rather short, i was happy to get it we love it!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible fine dining without theFantastic, fantastic, fantastic. We came with a group of 6 to try their food as a possible rehearsal dinner spot and we were blown away. We tried the butterfish, the lobster, the filet and the scallops. I can't even say what we liked best they were ask so delectable. Needless to say, we will be back for our wedding weekend!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently DeliciousThe food and service at Cafe 30-A never disappoints. It is always the first reservation we make for dinner when we know we are headed to the beach for vacation.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Vacation MealWas spending a week in the Seaside, Fla. area, and decided to have dinner at Cafe 30A. The two for one special between 5-6 PM is a super bargain, at regular price still a good deal for the quality of the food. We had the scallops, red snapper, and the house specialty "grits".5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent All AroundWe were celebrating a birthday and it could not have been more special. All our entrees were fantastic. The service was very good although our server's mood seemed to change once he got very busy, but this understandable. Definitely recommend and plan to return.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMCafe 30AWaitress was very attentive and the food was great!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food of our tripWe we in Seaside for our third annual visit and couldn't believe we hadn't tried Cafe30A before. The food was wonderful and service was outstanding. The only downside was deciding between the entrees. We planned to just have a light dinner of small plates - but had to order the pan seared diver scallops and polenta for my husband, and I had the delicious wood roasted grouper. Everything was perfectly prepared with a fascinating blend of complementary flavors. Can't wait for next year.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMKeeps getting better. I'veKeeps getting better. I've been coming to Cafe 30A for many years. The food and service is amazingly consistent. My recent Experience was even better. The Hawaiian butterfish and seared tuna were phenomenal . Cheesecake , banana beignets were outrageous. Lastly, great choice of wines at a very reasonable prices.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOur entrees were absolutelyOur entrees were absolutely perfect. Salmon over corn meal, & grouper over white beans. Evev the wedge lettuce salad was exceptional. Best food of our 2 week vacation4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. The butterFood was excellent. The butter fish was outstanding. Service was excellent!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choice from SeasideWe stayed a week in nearby Seaside and ate locally during the week. We decided to go a bit upscale one night and booked at Cafe 30-A. Good choice! It is an attractive, comfortable restaurant with a good vibe. More upscale than the beachy restaurants we had been frequenting but not stuffy by any means. We had a nice, relaxing evening and the touch of service was just about right. The wine list is long and a bit eclectic with many labels of which I was unfamiliar. A good thing and not overpriced. We selected a Brunello - the only one on the list. A beautiful wine. All in all, the evening was just what we had hoped. And only 2 miles from our cottage.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AM30-A, A Gem on the Emerald CoastConsistently excellent, Cafe 30-A is a gem on the Emerald Coast. The menu is diverse and the food is just outstanding. The atmosphere is top-shelf without being stuffy. It's always on my list when I'm in Rosemary Beach.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a little dark for theJust a little dark for the evening dining. Overall great.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome RestaurantOutstanding restaurant. We come to 30a every year from Iowa and spend 7-10 days and at least one of those nights my wife pleads to go here. Our waiter was excellent, and the food was awesome. I think the only oddity to it is they have what I would call mandatory parking. I know it sounds maybe cheap, but you spend roughly $15/couple and now pay $10 valet, and the parking lot is close and convenient. That is the only negative in my eyes.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ALWAYS enjoy Cafe Thirty-AWe ALWAYS enjoy Cafe Thirty-A when visiting that area of the Gulf Coast! We had three vegetarians with us and their veggie "platters" were almost too big! The crab cakes are among the very best we have ever had anywhere! We were celebrating a birthday and a beautifully decorated plate of beignets complete with candle and chocolate was delivered. We'll definitely be back just as soon as possible!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen we travel to the 30-AWhen we travel to the 30-A area we always try to dine at Cafe Thirty-A. The food was delicious and the service was first class. We came for the 2 for 1 entree option (5:00 to 6:00 pm). We'll be back next time we're in the area.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable food and serviceWe had a wonderful family dinner at cafe 30a. Since we were on vacation we had the kids along (14 and 7). Food was simply fantastic! Spinach salad with fried oyster. Crab cake, diver scallops, snapper and pizzas for kids. Sublime. The service was friendly and helpful with selecting wine and our meal. Can't wait for our next trip to the panhandle so we can dine there again!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience! We makeWonderful experience! We make this a must on every trip to this area. Service and quality are consistent.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhenever we are visiting theWhenever we are visiting the 30A area, we always come to Cafe 30A, we love it, we are never disappointed with the food or service.

Overall just a great place to have a wonderful evening.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNever dissapointsthis is one of our favs! they have an upstairs dining room and it is much quieter than downstairs - my diver scallops were done to perfection and you can never go wrong with the poached beet salad - my husband had the cheese plate and wood fired grouper. great martini menu.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely fabulous! Upscale,Absolutely fabulous! Upscale, creative food, great interior? Visiting the beach, met friends from home there. Had the Lobster in Paradise with truffled three cheese Mac - unbelievable!

Our server,LawrenceWonderful meal! Our server,Lawrence, was very knowledgeable about all of the foods and the wines. I would highly recommend this restaurant!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique and delicious menu choicesFantastic menu - difficult to choose from! My husband ordered the steak w/black rice, while I went with the lobster w/mac n'cheese (do not be fooled by the strange pairing of mac n' cheese with lobster) it was no ordinary mac! Brilliant pairing. Both dishes were on point and delicious. Martini's are great, and dessert was pleasing. I will note my Chocolate molten cake was stiff in the center, however, it still managed to be tasty. We will return again in the future.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMCafe 30a is our favorite destinatioCafe 30a is our favorite destination when we are in town. Always great food and love the atmosphere.

Five Stars in our book.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in Seagrove BeachFood was AMAZING! Service was AMAZING! Cafe Thirty-A is, BY FAR, the best restaurant in the Santa Rosa Beach area. Our waiter took his time describing entrees and desserts, to make sure we all had something we would love. I recommend the filet or the NY Strip with cheese grits. Such an awesome place! Great job Cafe Thirty-A!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've eaten at Cafe 30A severalWe've eaten at Cafe 30A several times and each time the food is fantastic! Our waiter, Chuch, was very attentive.

Their wine list is very good and we had a great wine at a reasonable pice.
We liked that we were able to order our appetizers and drinks and enjoy them before we ordered our entrees. Very relaxing.
We shared a pizza...nice thin crust and fresh tomatoes.
The wood roasted grouper was terrific. The steak was also good. Staff gladly switched our sides to accommodate our preferences.
For dessert. We shared the banana beignets with macadamia ice cream. Wow, was that good
We were in the area on vacation for one week. Cafe Thity-A was by far the best meal of the week.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
