We were very pleased with the food, service and location. The outdoor seating was very nice. The menu had enough variety for varied appetites.

Enjoyed so much, ate lunch and dinner here in one day. Charcutterie board was best ever had with choice of cheeses, olives, nuts, fruits, and six possible meats to add. Wife thought fish tacos for lunch was best she ever had. For dinner, shared fried green tomatoes topped with crab and bacon followed by ribeye with asparagus. Steak was seasoned... More

While the food was good on Thursday, and the wine tasting on Friday night was a good deal, the best part of both nights was our waitress, Carol. She was so personable and friendly and filled us in on some happenings in Rosemary Beach. She was actually the reason we attended the Friday night wine tasting. She completely sold the... More

My wife and I stopped at Wild Olives for a light afternoon snack completely unaware that we were, in fact, stopping into what would quickly become one of our favorite restaurants. Although we were the only dine-in customers we were still treated with great attention. One appetizer lead to another appetizer, which lead to another. We washed our "light snack"... More

Great location, great menu and normal prices for this area. I ordered the Dagwood and it was a fair portion of food but the Pastrami was really dry and the dressing was very bland. My wife ordered the burger and she said the flavor was a little odd. The burger is made with breadcrumbs which can be very strange if... More

Sir, I am sorry you had a bad experience at Wild Olives. We get our PRIME beef from Halperns out of Atlanta and we never put fillers into our hamburgers. Our hamburgers receive great reviews and the Ruben is more than most people can eat at one seating. We serve a triple deck ruben and always have great reviews on... More

I could not shut up about how good the Paprika Chicken with Pancetta dinner was and the Spring Risotto is so fabulous....!!! I could eat it for dinner everyday, but I don't live there.

After walking from the beach and facing the 30-45 minutes wait times in the restaurants closer to 30A, this was a savior. No wait time, great food and very hospitable environment... the wait was a bit longer than expected but we were in no rush. Really enjoyed the flatbread, great choice for families...

Vacationing in the off season has some great benefits. We were walking along 30A and came across this wonderful place. We walked up and the maitre d greeted us at the door. We were all alone at this place for lunch. The owner came over and spent some time with us discussing the menu and the wine selection. The service... More
