There simply is not a better place to eat anywhere in Florida. The consistency of the service, the elegance, presentation, and taste of the food is without compare
Although loud, which seems to be the case with most restaurants these days, it is by far the best food & service consistently of any restaurant we have ever experienced.....
Over the last 20 years!!
Fabulous as usual!
Great service as always. Been 3 times in 2 months, going 2 more times by end of August. 3 different waiters all awesome. Food awesome. Wait 0. Excellent happy hours from 5-6
Awesome meal. Great wait staff. Beat place for a nice experience.
Great food and excellent service every time we go to cafe 30a. Dependable and dining before 6 is a great value. Best restaurant in the destin area.
We had an excellent experience at Cafe Thirty-A. We were seated upon arrival, although we were slightly early for our reservation. The host and hostess were very friendly, and our waitress was efficient and personable. All of our food was outstanding. I highly recommend the crab cakes. We shared the crab cake appetizer option, and they are easily among the best we have ever eaten, including those we enjoyed during a previous trip to Baltimore. We enjoyed the tuna, grouper, and filet entrees; all were perfectly prepared and well plated. We will definitely return on future vacations to 30A.
Cafe 30-A is a gem. The food is amazing, well prepared, and fresh. I had the pan seared tuna; it was extraordinary. This is the best restaurant in the area. We will be back.
Awesome as always. Waiter was knowledgeable and very pleasant. Giving many suggestions. Food was great. Martinis were great and wine was great.
Best meal on 30a
Honestly a little disappointed this visit. Came to 30A to enjoy great fish, but the fish was just not good. Compared to so many other wonderful restaurants in the area at the same price point, was disappointed in the quality. Good service, strong drinks, tasty quail and grits appetizer. 3 stars.
We requested a table with privacy, we were sat at the perfect table. We had a perfect romantic experience with an excellent waiter - Chris. Chris made great recommendations on the food and wine. The food, service and atmosphere were absolutely the best in the area, this will be our go to restaurant in the future. Everyone should try the PEI mussel appetizer.

It was our anniversary and we had a wonderful meal. We made our reservation for 5:45 and were able to take advantage of the BOGO entree offer before 6 pm. My wife had the NY strip and I had the salmon. Both delicious and bread pudding for dessert was amazing!
We love coming here on our annual vacation. The food is great, but we don’t like to feel rushed. It was apparent that they were turning tables as quick as possible. For a family of 4, drinks, appetizers, and entrees in 40 minutes doesn’t make you feel like a valued guest. Our server kept watching my daughter like a hawk for her to finish her meal. Food was excellent, I just had to eat it super quick. We will think twice before returning.
My Birthday. Paul was exceptional as a waiter.
We dine at Cafe 30A every time we visit the area and every experience has been phenomenal.
Tonight, I had the filet mignon (great flavor and most tender filet I’ve ever had); my wife had the Shrimp Linguini (tender juicy shrimp); my son had the Maine Lobster in Paradise (he loved it); my daughter-in-law had a pizza (she loved it).
The service was as excellent as the food. Our waiter was informative and attentive.
We will definitely be back next time we’re in town!
Excellent all around!!!! Knowledgeable about celiac, gluten intolerance and food allergies! Absolutely amazing food and service!
Wonderful. Ate there twice while visiting. Quail with grits is just devine!!!!!!
The service was good but for the first time in the 8 years we have been coming here the food was not up to par. Too bad. We usually hit this very nice place twice during our stay but not this year. Grouper was dry and very over cooked and all that was mentioned by waiter was sorry.
Great meal thanks!
Always a favorite on 30A! The filet is the best I've ever had and the pineapple Cosmo, wow!! If we can get in, it's a definite stop for us.
The food was excellent! Everything was delicious! The ambiance was perfect. Service was great. Great night with friends. Our only complaint was it was a little too chilly. Even the guys were a little cold. When it’s hot and humid outside, and you’re dressed for hot weather, I hate it when restaurants keep it so cold! Other than that, it was perfect!
Had reservations secured by a credit card and was looking forward to our dinner. Upon arriving, they attempted to seat us up upstairs directly by the bathroom and then across the way in a very high traffic area but we refused. There were several good seats available. We were eventually seated in a good area but I’m not sure why guests that planned their dinner ahead of time were placed at such poor locations and walk ups waiting were not. Food was ok, certainly not as good as past visits. Service was good.
We love 30a! Only 2 reasons for 4 instead of 5 stars: 1) personal preference on the snapper preparation; didn’t love the crowder peas. They lowered the taste level of the dish.
2) waiter was a mite snippy, corrected my husband. Our other servers at 30a have been some of the best anywhere!
But those are minor points! We will definitely be back!!
Wonderful night out on 30-A! Great meal!
Appetizers were WAY overpriced for the amount of food you got. Definitely wouldn’t order the charcuterie again. Crab cake was good, but there was only one of them for $22.
Always a great meal from cocktails to dessert. Great meal. Pricey
Always 5 stars for Cafe Thirty-A!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Entrees not exceptional , considering the cost. Need more creative dishes
Always a great spot for dinner! Love that it’s one of the only places you can make a reservation in the Seaside/Watercolor area (very convenient with kids!) Food, service and overall experience were great!
Food was excellent and sitting on the porch was wonderful as we could hear each other talk. The purpose of our dinner was to allow conversation and catch up while having a great meal.
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.
Amazing meal and service! We got the grouper, crab cakes, scallops, and ribeye. Even splurged and got the banana beignets!
We love this place but the food was subpar on this occasion.
Nothing short of amazing. The atmosphere, the coctails, the service, the food...all worth the drive
The absolute best scallops I’ve ever had. And the crab cakes were perfect. Every dish was perfection.
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!”.
