About 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 Fishbone

This is an all-time favorite place of mine. Their branding of "consistently delicious" could not be more perfect! Kelly is the best waitress and I request her each time I go!

Cafe 30A is one of the nicer restaurants along 30A. They always have great seafood specials plus the regular menu offerings of other seafood, meats and a great selection of wines and specialty cocktails. Service is spot on.

We were seated immediately at our table. We moved here in November so we are now locals. We always ate here on the 4th of July for my wife’s Birthday. Don was our waiter and gave great service and we shared several funny stories together. Food was excellent and great meal, before a Live performance at the Rep performing Arts Center. Now we are local we will be regulars.

My husband, 3 month old and I were looking for a nice dinner our last night on a short weekend getaway. This place did not disappoint!! In fact, our experience here was excellent! The staff made us feel comfortable and welcome as soon as we walked in. They had a great cocktail list, HUGE wine list and the food was spectacular. I will definitely be back!! We highly recommend!

We dine at Cafe 30A several times each year and the food and service was impeccable as always. This was the first time that we were seated in the back area of the main dining room on the first floor and the area was really cramped. This was the first time we were ever a bit uncomfortable with our seating. Otherwise, excellent.

We were excited to try Cafe Thirty-A based on a ton of positive reviews. We found out that the night we were there was the first night they’d been open in three weeks as they shut down the restaurant in December. Not sure if they were just getting back “into the swing of things” or what - but we were a bit underwhelmed. The food was good...but not great. The service was good...but not great. The overall experience was good...just not great; which is what we were expecting.

That said, I’d be willing to give it another shot the next time we’re down in the 30A area.

Our second visit here, first one was much better. I had the tuna poke for appetizer and I thought the tuna was cut too big and nothing “wow” tasting in that appetizer. The corn bisque was just ok as well. I had the lobster Mac & cheese and although the lobster was cooked perfectly, the cheese had no great flavor. My husband had the flounder which was also just ok. All in all, the atmosphere and service are wonderful but the food on this visit was lackluster this time.
