A word from Cafe Thirty-A
Café Thirty-A is a casual fine-dining restaurant featuring grilled and fire roasted seafood, meats and poultry, wood-oven pizza, vegetarian fare and hedonistic, "architectural" desserts. The menu changes daily according to availability of ingredients. Fine wines and cocktails--including a creative menu of the best martinis in the area--complement the meal. The ambiance is open, casual, "islandy," yet sophisticated, with vaulted ceilings, upside-down market umbrellas, hand painted chairs, intimate lighting and half-wall dividers creating the atmosphere. Patrons often state, "It just makes you feel good to walk in here!" It's a fun, happening place to dine - with impeccable, yet unpretentious, service. Recent and ongoing awards are: Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, Florida Trend Golden Spoon Award, North American Restaurant Association Five-Star Award of Excellence, NW Florida Daily News “Restaurant of the Year.” Private dining for 25-80 is available upstairs in the FishboneContinued

  • "What a great experience we had at 30A! Easily it was the best meal that we had while visiting Florida this past weekend. The Fried Oyster salad was delightful, and the Scallops with Lobster Quinoa was delish!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Took a while to just get a glass of water. After we called the waiter over every thing extremely well."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "My wife and I are vacationing on Santa Rosa Beach along highway 30-A. We had heard of Cafe Thirty-A and wanted to see if it was as good as the reviews. It was much better. The service, ambience, food, etc couldn't have been better. We will go back!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Our dinner was delicious! My kids had the lobster, my husband had the grouper, and I had the snapper. All of our entrees were wonderful. Scott, our waiter, provided outstanding service - very professional and friendly. We can't wait to come back!"

  • "The meal was devine! We had a party of 8 and everybody was a member of the Clean Plate Club. Cafe 30-A will always be a must for dinner."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "This was our second time in the area and we decided to eat at Cafe 30-A again to see if it was as good as the first time -- it didn't disappoint us. We had a great waiter and the food was amazing!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our meal here. The flavors in the dishes were vibrant. Each flavor stood out, and they worked very well together. I had the snapper; my wife had the chicken. Both were excellent dishes. The service was good, but not excellent or outstanding. Our server was very friendly, but I think I expected a bit more for this caliber restaurant. I would have rated the ambiance higher, but the noise level was a good bit louder than I would have preferred. This is mostly because of families with small, loud children."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Great food every year when we visit this special restaurant. Staff very attentive."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "It wasn't bad food by any stretch but seriously the attitude and the prices?? I ordered a Taco Pizza just to save some money off the bill and was strongly encouraged by my arrogant waiter to order "8 other items before that". Whatever...never would go back"

  • "Great food. Our server Troy was outstanding. We celebrated our anniversary and could not have picked a better spot"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "And Seagrove V is a close second (wonder if they have the same owner). Dined here twice as it was that good. Get there between 5 and 6 and get twice the food for the price of one!"

  • "Always a must visit for our family that never disappoints ! Especially for a birthday! Elegant, comfortable dining!"

  • "Everything was exceptional! When we are vacationing in the area, Cafe 30A is a must."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "30a is not what it used to be. Service / food/ ambience/ decor all need an overhaul. 10 +years ago it was the best place in town. Now it has musty old carpet and the food is mediocre. I ordered seared scallops and they were drowned in butter/oil. My son's order wasn't right either( wrong sides- salad dressed) We've had many family events here for years- I hate to see it decline so much. Fingers crossed for an overhaul..."

  • "The food and service was great! We had two small children and it was easy as our orders were taken and delivered in a timely fashion. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Although our food was absolutely delicious, the service was deplorable. We brought two couples who had never been before, telling them what a wonderful, place it was. We were seated right away, but had to wait over 30 minutes for water or a waiter to take drink orders. Then we had to ask if we could place our dinner orders. The food came out timely and was delicious. The restaurant needs to up its service!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Several years ago (7+) we went to Cafe 30A and were completely underwhelmed. The food was not good at all. This year we decided to try again and to our surprise it was very, very good. The meals were all delicious and the wine pairings were perfect. Our kids selected off the additional sides menu and loved it. The Mac-and-cheese crawfish was excellent. Our waiter was also very helpful, pleasant and efficient."

  • "Dinner party of 8- all thought their meal was outstanding!"

  • "This was a great, semi formal dining experience. Perfect for special occasions and large groups. Excellent cocktails and entrees include seafood specials and high end steaks and game."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Great food and service. Good steak for no fish eaters. Martini and wine choices can not be beat. Children's menu was decent."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "This was the second time I have been to Café Thirty-A. The only thing better than the service is the food. It is a true dining experience and a favorite for special occasions. I cannot recommend this restaurant with enough conviction to do it justice. They served dessert with a special birthday message without request. Everyone is treated as a guest in their home instead of a customer in their restaurant."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "While the food and the service was very good, the prices were not merited. There were no free refills on soft drinks and one glass of the Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc was the price of the bottle retail."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The food was excellent and the atmosphere had the perfect beachside feel. Our service was superb as well. We had such a great experience we returned the very next night with the whole family."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "This restaurant is so wonderful! Every time we visit 30a for vacation, we make it a priority to dine at Cafe Thirty A. Sometimes we even go there twice. The food is exquisite, the servers are wonderful, and the chef is wonderfully talented. This restaurant is definitely a gem that I plan to visit many years to come."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner here. Our table was ready when we arrived. We chose to do the 2 for 1 special from 5-6 pm. Our server, Katherine, was helpful and attentive. There are limited entrees for the special price but there is still plenty of variety. I had the pan roasted chicken. It was the best chicken I have ever eaten. So juicy and flavorful. Brussels sprouts and roasted potatoes nicely complemented the meal. My husband chose the snapper which was cooked well and tasted great. We capped off our dinner by sharing the popular banana beignets served with homemade macadamia nut ice cream. Incredible! We were very satisfied with our experience at Cafe 30A and plan on returning on our next trip."
