My wife and I came for dinner with our 4 month old son. We had a great time and our server Peyton took amazing care of us. The food was delicious; I had the grilled grouper and my wife had got the blackened red snapper....More

Another fantastic meal at the sushi bar. Enjoyed visiting with the chef and watching the voters returns. Great night and never forget the Key Lime pie!

Attended a wedding dinner for 30 or so people. Even though the reservation apparently got mixed up, the chef and waitstaff worked seamlessly to serve everyone quickly. The restaurant is aware of food allergies and uses paper straws! The Grouper was grilled to perfection and...More

It's Quiet. Or at least "quiet-er". Plus it has a great view of Eastern Lake, as opposed to the view of the parking lot that most other mid-range restaurants along 30A offer. As for the quiet, I'm referring to their "Porch"...open only for lunch. Most...More

This restaurant is a gem, albeit not hidden. It is consistently good. Arrive early or late because crowds can be huge during prime supper time. Despite this, the line moves surprisingly quickly. I like their sushi, particularly.

Thank you so much for a wonderful review! From the sunset views to the fresh, local sushi, we pride ourselves on offering the best that 30A has to offer! We hope that you can join us soon for lunch or dinner.

We’ve come to the 30-A area for many years now and always drove by this place but never stopped. So this year we decided to give it a try, and I’m glad we did. The vibe was pleasant with a laid back upscale feel but...More

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!
