Seagrove restaurant. Went for lunch on rainy day. Not crowded. Reuben sandwich with fried pickles and fries. Deep dish key lime pie with thick crust for dessert. Best meal of trip.

This is a large restaurant which seems to get really busy during high season. Luckily we were here mid week in August, and it was largely empty. Note that the "outside" patio is an air-conditioned screened in porch, without much of a lake view, so...More

We appreciated you taking your time to write a review. We do not have a patio so you must be referring to our covered porch. It gets very hot here during the summer months and that area would not be usable without air conditioning. Those...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!
