Service (John) was appropriately attentive and helpful. Did a great job for us. Made some really good recommendations.

We had seafood and steak. Both excellent.

The view from the Vue is second to none.

We love dining there.

Our server was excellent. The wine & grouper were very tasty, but the servings were incredibly small (i.e., the fish, risotto AND asparagus). The view is quite nice.

We enjoyed a nice dinner. All the food was good except the bread was stale & seemed to have been reheated to cover it up. We weren’t wild about our server. The other service was very good, ambience excellent & the view lovely. We will go back.

Enjoyed dining at the Vue. The view of the gulf is breath taking and the ambiance was perfect for a relaxing dinner with friends. We especially enjoyed the venison appetizer and their wine selection. The service was excellent and the server was very accommodating for our special requests. We will definitely return to the Vue on our next trip to Seagrove Beach.

My wife and I were excited to visit for the view which proved to be as advertised as the best anywhere along 30A. The menu was a little outside our budget but saw the 2 for 1 entrees offering between 5-6 and so we made a 5pm reservation. We ordered 2 entrees (both ribeye) which was an off menu entree that our waitress recommended. When we got the bill, we were charged full price. I asked the waitress about it and she said “no problem, I understand”. I gave her my card assuming she would honor the 2 for 1 deal. She did not and charged me full price. A $60 meal turned into a $115 meal. I spoke with a manager who apologized that the waitress did not clarify when ordering, but he offered no reimbursement or way to make it right. This place has an amazing view, great food but was very disappointed in the service that we experienced.

Ordered Red Snapper as tonights special. Where's the fish. Portion was very small. My wife's scallop order was very good. Our guest filet was good. We enjoyed the new look. Just very disappointed with red snapper.

The atmosphere at Vue on 30A is nice and on this particular night was not crowded (offseason and midweek). Our server was very attentive to our needs and did a good job with presenting the menu and options as well as serving our meal. Unfortunately, the fish my date ordered and the filet i ordered were both overcooked and lacking flavor. For the quality of the food I also feel that the price was too high. Based on this visit, we will not return for future meals.

Our family of 4 was very excited to dine at Vue on 30A on our last evening of our beach vacation. We have vacationed in the area for years but for one reason or the other had never dined at Vue on 30A and were very excited to try it for the first time. We had hoped to book a reservation for that magnificent sunset but had a prior engagement, so booked our reservation for 7:30pm.
Upon our arrival there was no one at the hostess stand to greet us but after a few minutes we were eventually seated. We were pretty disappointed to find out that the outdoor patio was booked for a private party and we would have to sit inside. The restaurant interior was nice enough and we were glad to at least be seated in the dining room with the vaulted ceiling.
The tables were all mostly seated and the noise level was very high both with the dining room noise as well as the private party's music, dancing and laughter. The appetizers, entrees and wine we ordered were all presented well and tasted good. Our waiter was attentive enough.
Overall, the food was good but the ambiance was very lacking if you are looking for an intimate and elegant dining experience. I may try the restaurant again but only if we were able to be seated outside.

My favorite restaurant for food..wonderful. But the service let it down...on the last 3 occasions we have eaten there.

However, the food is still great. I just wonder if the restaurant is 'sitting on it's laurels' of great food, neglecting that the service - which takes so little to be "Great!" is as important! I hope this is not a trend but I have dined 3x recently and waited to give a negative review.

The scallops are to die for as was the calamari. The two for one options are great. Make sure to make reservations and ask for table where everyone can enjoy view.

The greeter appeared to not want to be there. We obviously had a reservation through opentable. But we were told there were no tables available inside and we would have to sit outside. There appeared to be a number of empty inside tables during the entire time we were eating. At the table outside at which we were seated the light was so poor I had to use my phone flashlight to see the menu and sign the bill.

Got there 15 minutes early. Parking was limited. Hostess said would seat at reservation time. Went to bar and wife had a drink. Waited a long time for the bartender to get her a second one. At 15 minutes after reservation time, I checked in with hostess who had seemed to have forgotten about us. Was seated immediately after that. Service was a bit slow, and food was below average for the price. Seemed if you were a member of the club, you got a lot of attention, if not (we weren't) well thanks for supporting the club.

Food was great, margarita was horrible!!! Did not offer to remake it just wanted to know if I wanted something else to drink. The guy sitting at the table next to us was SO loud and he never shut up the entire time!! Not even when he got his food!! He even dropped the “F-bomb” a few time and there were children at next table. Not fault of restaurant but would have been nice if they had asked him to tone it down a little. Been there before so I knew it was a good restaurant, he just ruined it for our out of town guest.
