Brunch at Vue on 30a was perfection. The food couldn't have been better! I recommend the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict. Delightful! The view from the patio is spectacular! And our server, Hunter, a cool guy. I can't wait to return!!

Definitely appropriately named as it had a spectacular sunset view but a trade off as we were seated right next to the door to the outside deck & guests were continually going outside for a photo & leaving the door open.

This is a must when visiting Santa Rosa beach. The scallops and filet minion dinners we chose were cooked to perfection. I don't believe there is a seat that doesn't have a good view. The only reason for a four star on food was the Creme brûlée was a disappointment as there was only approx two full tbsp. (It had to be a flawed dish). The service was impeccable as Hunter went above and beyond to make our 31st anniversary memorable.

Food excellent, although not piping hot. We suspected that It had been left to sit under the hot lamps as our waitress was slow. We waited 1hr 10min to get our food and drink service was similarly slow. If it wasnt for the view, we probably would not be back.

We have eaten here multiple times, so we know that this was an isolated problem, but please keep your service up to par!!

Overall, I was disappointed with our experience. As another reviewer mentioned, the patio lighting ruins the ambience of outdoor seating. We chose to sit inside. Our server was very attentive and took great care of us. However, I was a little taken aback when she neglected to offer the special and then when asked about it, she said she wouldn’t recommend it. At the price point of this restaurant I would expect everything on the menu to be good enough and fresh enough to recommend. We had crab cakes for an appetizer, the champagne vinegarette really elevated the flavor. The salad I wanted to order was sold out- bummer. But the salads my husband and I had were great nonetheless. We chose the grouper and scallops for our main. The grouper was bland and more fatty than what we’re used to eating. The scallops were served with crumbled bacon and an orange balsamic glaze. They would’ve been perfect without the glaze, too many textures and flavors going on at once. We finished with the key lime pie mousse which was refreshing and light. The wine selection was ample and the cocktails were strong. It was dark so the “vue” didn’t add to our experience. Maybe if we had dined closer to sunset I would’ve thought more highly of our night.

Our server Johnny was fantastic! Food is very good and the view is excellent if you are near the windows. Denis (bartender) makes an awesome old fashioned using a block of smoked white cedar. The only negative is if you sit outside be prepared to watch and listen to kids or adults swimming in the pool right next to the deck. Other than that a nice place to go.

On this my third visit to the Santa Rosa Beach area, I had dinner here with sisters/friends who recommended this wonderful establishment. Our Server, Bobbi, was fantastic, the food impeccable and the atmosphere elegant but not pretentious. The Chef flys in the Buffalo Mozzarella from Italy...enough said! If you’re within 30 miles of this restaurant make your way, you won’t be disappointed.

the lighting on the covered patio is too bright white...warm it up (like the ding room) and use softer (yellow) bulbs. We felt like we were in an Interrogation room.

We chose Vue because it looked romantic and upscale to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. It did not disappoint. We were able to sit on the gorgeous patio and enjoy the sunset withnour meal. Taylor was our server and he was knowledgeable and very personal able. Very happy with our choice!!

We sat outside and had a gorgeous view of the sunset! We arrived in time for the 2 for 1 entrees and the food couldn’t have been better! I had the scallops which were delicious! My husband also allowed me to have a couple bites of his perfectly grilled filet! Taylor was our server, and although he had only been at Vue one week he did a fantastic job! This was not our first visit and certainly won’t be our last!
