“Such a fun bar. The band playing tonight (3/17) was really good and fun. The food was really good for a bar. We had the gumbo, shrimp and crawfish pasta, and the blackened grouper. All very tasty, well portioned and presented. It can get loud while the band is playing, but if you don't mind it, you'll have a good time and meal.Parking: Parking is hard to find.“

“We liked this place. It was a little confusing coming in because there was no manned hostess stand. I found a helpful waitress, Adeline, who found as a table outside. The service was great for a busy Spring Break day and the food was good but the food, as expected was a little pricey $$$ for the setting. Other reviewers said the people working here were rude. We did not have that experience, so I would recommend it. Also I highly recommend parking at the free public lot for the Village of Grayson Beach and take the free shuttle. You will never find a parking spot near the restaurant.“

“This is an absolute must stop if you are in the area. The Philly with their special sauce was insanely good. Same with the fries.My wife had the gyro and we have had many in our life but she said this was the best she's had.To top it all off we got a chocolate chunk cookie. Amazing.Super friendly and quick service and although it's a small place, it's exactly the kind of atmosphere you'd expect for a sandwich shop. Very cool vibe with all the retro pictures throughout.Make this a priority to stop here if you love food. It's worth going out of the way if you need to.“

We had one dinner miso Eder and the server was so apologetic and the chef made it right very promptly. There is a wide variety of seafood entrees and each looked delicious and well prepared. I took a few picks of the ordered entrees at our table. I would dine here again.“

We couldn’t get enough of the calamari and crab claws. Both outside and indoor seating was great; we had the opportunity to hit the dance floor with Chevy and listen to some great music after our WONDERFUL bread pudding and chocolate cake…Please visit this lovely establishment, it will make your trip 1000x better!- Love, Kennedy and Family“

“Good place for good food. The grouper I had came quick and hot. The portions were big. The prices were reasonable. The only negative is would share is the amount of toppings on the Grouper took away from the taste of the fish. Also, the waitress didn't know if the fish was locally caught. There were 4 of us that all had something different and overall we enjoyed the food and atmosphere of the restaurant.“

Our server, Lee, was very friendly, professional, and prompt. Our waters were frequently refilled and all team members were polite and friendly. We tried the east coast oysters, which were very good and well presented. I tried the squid ink bucatini with shrimp, which was good. My colleague tried the curried butternut squash with chicken and she said it was delicious and the chicken was well prepared. I would highly recommend this spot for an excellent meal and experience.“

“A Gem of a Coffee Experience at AmavidaVisiting Amavida Coffee both in Rosemary Beach and Seaside turned out to be a highlight of my Florida trip. The ambiance of both locations is a perfect blend of comfort and artistic flair, making each visit a unique experience. Their commitment to sustainability is evident not just in their delicious organic coffee, but also in the range of sustainable products like the sweatshirts, which are not only eco-friendly but stylish too.The latte in Rosemary Beach was crafted to perfection, offering the right balance of espresso and milk - a true delight for any coffee lover. Meanwhile, the Seaside location impressed me with its delightful cheese Danish and scrumptious macarons, each bite better than the last. The variety and quality of their pastries are commendable.What truly sets Amavida apart, though, is the beautiful art that adorns their walls, adding an enriching layer to the overall experience. It's not just a coffee shop; it's a celebration of local culture and artistry. I highly recommend Amavida Coffee to anyone looking for exceptional coffee, delightful treats, and a warm, inviting atmosphere. Whether you're a local or just passing through, Amavida is a must-visit destination.Parking: Street sideKid-friendliness: I was able to enjoy my coffee while my kids enjoyed their time there.“
