Buy one get one free entree's between 5 and 6. The food was perfectly cooked. We ordered a medium rare filet and a redfish dish. Both were excellent. The drinks were reasonably priced and they even had bourbon balls!

We eat out every night when we are in town (often). Cafe Thirty A is always the BEST! Food, service and atmosphere are superb. It makes me very hungry for it just sitting here writing this in Austin. Delicious!

When we are in Destin, we love to take one evening to drive to Cafe Thirty-A in Seagrove Beach. It is upscale, yet friendly, and the atmosphere is elegant, yet fun. The food and service are both outstanding. We couldn't ask for more!

Their web site says 'Tini night is at the bar only. But, heh, you can always ask when you get there, or go a little early before your dinner time.

Description
Café Thirty-A is a casual fine-dining restaurant featuring grilled and fire roasted seafood, meats and poultry, wood-oven pizza, vegetarian fare and hedonistic, "architectural" desserts. The menu changes daily according to availability of ingredients. Fine wines and cocktails--including a creative menu of the best martinis in the area--complement the meal. The ambiance is open, casual, "islandy," yet sophisticated, with vaulted ceilings, upside-down market umbrellas, hand painted chairs, intimate lighting and half-wall dividers creating the atmosphere. Patrons often state, "It just makes you feel good to walk in here!" It's a fun, happening place to dine - with impeccable, yet unpretentious, service. Recent and ongoing awards are: Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, Florida Trend Golden Spoon Award, North American Restaurant Association Five-Star Award of Excellence, NW Florida Daily News “Restaurant of the Year.” Private dining for 25-80 is available upstairs in the Fishbone
