Restaurants to Try in Fort Walton Beach!
Posted on January 21, 2016
You have recently purchased Fort Walton Beach real estate and have settled into your new home – great! Now it’s time to start exploring your new hometown.
While decorating your new home, you probably discovered our great shops and boutiques along the Emerald Coast, so let’s talk local restaurants. Those can be a little harder to discover without recommendations. So, without further ado, our top 5 places to eat in Fort Walton Beach!
#5: Helen Back Cafe – This is your new pizza place. Located on Okaloosa Island and offering a bay view, this local joint is known for its wonderful beer selection and oversized pies. It’s also a great place to go with a group or to watch the big game.
#4: Bay Cafe – Open seasonally, Bay Cafe is the place to celebrate birthdays or anniversaries. The waterfront view and delicious French cuisine will make this a truly memorable culinary experience. Prefer Italian? Try Cafe Italia just across the road.
#3 – Buffalo’s Reef – You are going to take one look at this place and think we are nuts, but trust us. These are seriously the best wings in town! Maybe in several towns. Don’t forget the curly fries and extra blue cheese dressing. Even if you’re usually a ranch person, you will be hooked!
#2 – Old Bay Steamer – Don’t wear your nice clothes, this place gets messy. But, it’s well worth it! Steamer buckets come with choice of seafood – all containing delicious crab of some kind – as well as red potatoes and corn boiled in Old Bay seasoning. You won’t be able to crack those claws fast enough.
#1 – Stewby’s Seafood Shanty – Believe it or not, the best seafood meal in town is far from the beach. Offering drive through or counter service, this place serves truly local seafood prepared in southern style. Affordable and delicious, you will come back time and again.
