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

WaterSound Beach Club & Grill

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, Apalachicola 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 is fun and relaxing either under an oversized umbrella or the cloistered verandah animated with flowing draperies that blow in the breeze.

Step inside the beachside grill 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 The WaterSound Beach Club is a private club; only members and St. Joe Club & Resort guests, including guests of WaterSound Inn, are permitted.
