Café Thirty-A Review

About a mile and half east of Seaside in a beautiful Florida-style home with high ceilings and a wide veranda, this restaurant has an elegant look—bolstered by white linen tablecloths—and impeccable service. The menu changes nightly and includes such entrées as wood-oven-roasted wild king salmon, sesame-crusted rare yellowfin tuna, and grilled Hawaiian butterfish. Even if you're not a Southerner, you should try the appetizer of grilled Georgia quail with creamy grits and sage fritters. With nearly 20 creative varieties, the martini menu alone is worth the trip.

    Café Thirty-A Review

    Beautifully maintained old-looking building nicely decorated inside. Free parking in front. Small to moderately sized servings of very good food artfully arranged on each plate. Very pricy. We spend every May in this area but have decided not to go back due to the snootiness of the hostess and wait staff(try the Old Florida Fish House or Bud and Alley's instead).
