A very nice alternative to the typical fried seafood menu in many of the other 30A restaurants. The restaurant has an exceptional Sushi menu along with nice fish selections. Worth a short trip on 30A!

Hi, I am the owner of the Seagrove Beach Art Collective, parent company of SoWal Leather and Pearls. I would love to rent your building #3. We've had a great year, but need a retail spot. Our dream would be to one day fill one or two more of your buildings and see the Seagrove Beach Art Collective come to life! We've been a big draw at the Watercolor Farmers' Market and have developed a wonderful fan/client base, so I think it would be awesome to have some fun and activity as your patrons enter. Thank you!

Description
Welcome to Old Florida Fish House, located in the heart of Seagrove Beach, Florida. First opening its doors in the summer of 2005, the Fish House is a family friendly restaurant that features daily seafood specials prepared by our executive chef, Paul Richards and some of the best sushi available on the Emerald Coast. A casual atmosphere, along with lakefront dining, is sure to provide you and your family with the perfect celebratory experience. Dinner and sushi start at 5 PM and no reservations are required or observed. We would also like to invite you to visit us at the Porch serving lunch daily. The newest addition to the Old Florida Fish House, the Porch is a beautiful full service bar built on a screened in porch right along Eastern Lake. The bar and tables are made from sinker cypress wood and offers guests a gorgeous view in a relaxed setting with plenty of big screen high definition televisions to watch the big game. The Porch is open every day of the week for lunch and dinner, starting at 11am. Old Florida Fish House is considered a hidden gem on 30A and graciously takes the crown as a favorite local's hot spot. With seating in the hundreds, celebrations are encouraged. Proudly featuring local live music and happy hour, Old Florida Fish House is a hidden gem and one you don't want to miss when you come visit South Walton! We look forward to having you soon!
