From our very own Watersound Beach Club to an array of restaurants just moments away, your visit to WaterSound Inn will be filled with great dining experiences.

Watersound Beach Club

Gather around the table to savor the bounty of the Gulf and a seasonal array of the freshest local ingredients in a variety of unique waterfront settings. Depending on the catch of the day, grilled cobia, oysters and Florida hoppers might combine with seasonal salads and summer vegetables for an inviting blend of textures and tastes.

Choices of where to dine abound. Casual poolside dining at Beach Break Bar & Grill is fun and relaxing either under an oversized umbrella or the cloistered veranda animated with flowing draperies that blow in the breeze.

Step inside the beachside grill, 30°86°, where ceilings rise double height to give an added sense of volume, while cypress paneling add intimacy and scale. A ‘wall of windows’ floods the space with natural light from morning to afternoon and brings the outside indoors.

One thing is certain, no matter which dining experience you choose, the WaterSound Beach Club is sure to please even the most discerning palette.

Please note that WaterSound Beach Club is a private club; only members and St. Joe Hospitality guests, including guests of WaterSound Inn, are permitted. 

Bruno’s Pizza- WaterSound Beach

Located in the WaterSound GateHouse building, Bruno’s Pizza has been a 30A tradition for decades. Great pizza in a super-casual spot. Watch for Bruno’s 2-for-1 specials in the slower winter months, and their affordable lunch buffet is always a hit with locals and visitors alike.  

The Hub 30A- WaterSound Beach

The Hub 30A is, without a doubt, one of the top dining spots on the Florida Panhandle. You’ll find everything from an award-winning casual burger restaurant, to a seafood food truck, BBQ shack, outdoor wood-burning pizza place, breakfast spot, frozen pineapple kiosk, & ice cream shop. The Hub also boasts 2 full service bars, live music, & sports plus movie nights all shown on the Gulf Coast's largest jumbotron, 25' LED to be exact!

Havana Beach Bar & Grill- Rosemary Beach

Inspired by El Floridita, Hemingway’s favorite haunt in old-town Havana, Havana Beach Bar & Grill offers a comfortable, communal ambiance full of life and steeped in the joy of living, eating and drinking well. A Florida Trend Golden Spoon Award winner, The Pearl Hotel’s signature restaurant serves up Gulf Coast American cuisine with vibrant Latin Caribbean influences, incorporating ingredients sourced locally from small, family-owned producers within 100 miles of the restaurant, as well as the freshest regional seafood. 

Guests may enjoy the experience in four ways: in the main dining room (a bustling scene set to live piano entertainment on select nights), on the veranda (with views overlooking the Gulf and Main Street), on the rooftop (a can’t-miss sunset spot), or in the new lounge (the perfect place to meet up with friends).  At the hand-carved mahogany bar, mixologists craft made-to-order cocktails that creatively engage all of the senses. Those looking to unwind with a glass of wine can also choose from a well curated selection.

Fish Out of Water- WaterColor

As one of the 30A area’s only large family-style restaurants and bars overlooking the Gulf, Fish Out of Water embodies the spirit of the WaterColor community: coastal, fun, and unpretentious, with impeccable service and cuisine. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Happy Hour served daily*.  Located at WaterColor Inn.  Open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis with private dining and online ordering available.
