Description: FOOW is the acronym for the restaurant formerly known as Fish Out of Water at WaterColor, FL. After a significant renovation, the restaurant reopened on June 23, 2018; and remains committed to offering the same high-quality service and cuisine it is known for, now in a more approachable coastal setting. As one of the 30A area’s only large family-style restaurants and bars overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, FOOW embodies the spirit of the WaterColor community: coastal, fun, and unpretentious, with impeccable service and cuisine. The menu, drinks, and interior design, coupled with a streamlined open-air kitchen, create a lively and engaging ambience- perfect for a midday break with family, a fun evening with friends or a romantic date night. FOOW features live music seasonally; and the expanded FOOWbar offers an inspired beverage program. For large groups for special celebrations, the FOOWroom is a private getaway from the crowds, surrounded by an impressive wine cellar.

Went with a family of four. Great outdoor seating with a view. Everyone loved the meal. I travel a lot and have eaten in many great restaurants. This was literally in my top 10 meals of all time! The chef is top notch. Not cheap but a must do when we are in the area. Had the triggerfish special and the brussel sprouts. Awesome!!!

We've stayed at the Water Color Inn twice. Opted not to eat at Fish Out Of Water the first time as we figured we could find someplace better than a hotel restaurant. This visit, we enjoyed a drink at the patio during sunset. Our server, Steve, was very attentive, personable and quite an asset to FOOW. We appreciated the lovely view, tasty cocktail and caramel treat. Came back for a fabulous breakfast: the spring veggie omelette with fruit and the breakfast quesadilla with potatoes. We left full and with doggie bags. Galina, our server, was charming and also attentive. Next time we visit, we'll give dinner a try.

While we used to love eating here and planned to visit multiple times during our three week stay, this restaurant lost our ongoing business yesterday. Breakfast is served until 11:00 but on arriving at 10:15 the staff clearly didn't want to seat us. We should have left then but they did seat our party. That was the last attention we received and after asking to be served at one point, we finally left after half an hour without even being greeted or offered drinks. We could see the wait staff arguing and refusing to serve our table. Apparently there was basically no one assigned to serve inside the restaurant to they were only waiting on the guests on the patio. We saw multiple parties turned away so they either need to change their hours and say they close at 10:00 or perhaps be prepared to serve the Sunday breakfast crowds that bring business to their restaurant. We won't be back until they open the brunch buffet so we can serve ourselves food and hopefully get to eat.
