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 Fishbone

We have been going there for more than 15 years whenever we travel to the beach. Always great food. Crab cakes are amazing.

Cafe Thirty-A did not disappoint. From the valet parking to the amazing service, delicious food and dessert it was top notch. We could not have asked for a better atmosphere for dinner. Honestly, the best filet mignon I have every had!! Don’t let the bottled tea turn you off...it was divine! Enjoyed every minute of our experience.

Food and service never disappoint. Seldom have “room” for dessert, but find the selection limited.

We have been going to Cafe 30-A for 10+ years but it was rare for my Wife & I to go by ourselves! Our anniversarhy was June 10 but I deciced we would celebrate by dining at Cafe Thirty A. As usual, the service was great. Ron, our server, was quickly at our table taking drink orders and then going over the menu after he delivered the drinks. For starters, I had the oyster/spinach salad and my Wife had the watermelon salad. Normally For dinner I had the Snapper and she had the Crab Cakes and of course, an order of their famous grits. Needless to say it was great! We haqd the bread pudding for dessert but we had to bring it home. As they say down South. “It don”t get no better then this!”.

The food and service were outstanding. Our server, Anderson, was solicitous and knowledgeable. The food was fresh and perfectly portioned. We would recommend the cafe to anyone visiting this part of Florida!

It seems like the prices have gone up. It was by far the most expensive place we ate. The crab cakes were ok but certainly not worth $47 for two small ones. Unfortunately, as in the past, the server was condescending.
This is a beautiful space and the is usually a notch above what we ordered on this occasion.

Excellent food, variety & service & reasonable prices. Nice to have a new menu each night. One of best Filets I have tasted & I have been to MANY steakhouses! Did not enjoy paying for mandatory Valet parking which did not include tip- this was only negative but may be because of limited parking on 30A. Highly rec restaurant & have been there several times. Each visit was excellent!

This is a very lovely restaurant that has been reliably excellent for all the time we have gone there in the last 14 years. You can get a very good price if you can go for their 2 entree for 1 deal between 5 and 6pm. The only complaint I have is that I think a $5 charge for the mandatory valet parking is a nuisance.
