What is the Summer Kitchen Cafe ! We are a casual quick service restaurant by day and a Flex Casual restaurant by Night (Full Service) So for Breakfast and lunch you will order & pay at the counter, then we will deliver your food to you & the number we give you. By night...5:00 PM we transform into a traditional full service restaurant with some of the best local seafood & farm items around (Kale salad!is the best). Note our dinner menu is not the same as our lunch menu so check both out before you get here. We started serving in Rosemary Beach in 1999 with a walk up window and no indoor seating. Today we have indoor seating, but most people opt to sit outside on the front deck or the side courtyard. We are proud to be part of the 30A songwriters festival in January each year. Hope you will come by and try at least one meal with us or like many do Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Awesome breakfast wraps

Great quality, simple food. Loved the breakfast roll-ups! Fun outdoor seating area, but also has a few indoor tables with air conditioning.

We ate here while returning our bikes in Rosemary. I had the spicy chicken wrap and my husband had the barbacoa I think. My wrap would have been delicious but there was a seasoning on the chicken that I just didn't care for but everything else on the wrap was fantastic. My husband did not care for his sandwich at...

I first tried grits at the Summer Kitchen, years ago & I must say, they are still the best! The grouper & grits is a meal that I could eat everyday. The grits are creamy, light & perfect. The dinner entrees exceed the simple decor of the place & it is often over looked because of this.. But it means... More

Summer Kitchen is great for any meal. But we especially enjoy patio dining for dinner. It's a small restaurant with a great menu. Certainly the beef tenderloin is one of my favorite dishes. Served with fluffy potatoes and grilled asparagus, it's great. Fair wine selection, even by the glass. Highly recommend.

This restaurant was highly recommended. We had the cutest Midwestern server who was just delightful. Service was quick and accurate, but I was somewhat disappointed by the food. My burger -- which is the thing for which they're famous -- was mediocre, but the fries with parmesan & truffle oil were fantastic. I'd go back but would try another entrée... More

Went here for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service! We had the filet, Shrimp Saute and the Grouper. All came out hot and tasted great. The house salad was also excellent. Nice short list of wines. The young wait staff was excellent! Not a lot of places in Rosemary Beach for dinner, but this is one I... More

Good food. Nice eating choices both indoors and outdoors. Good variety. It is a nice, casual place to eat when coming and going from the pools and beach. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner though dinner is table service only.

Had lunch there. Guacamole and chips was excellent, little pricey for the portion. Chicken Salad wrap was delicious. Place was full but definitely worth it!

Went with a group of 8 ladies on a Sunday evening. No wait. The restaurant is really cute with indoor and outdoor seating. We sat indoors where there were only about 4 tables. I ordered the swordfish daily special and it was delicious! The fish was tender and so moist, the grilled veggies (squash, zucchini, and asparagus) were cooked perfectly.... More

We had a nice family dining experience at the Summer Kitchen Restaurant. The food was good and the environment was nice. Note that most seating is outside, so after dusk is best if you plan to have dinner there. The restaurant was a bit on the pricey side for a "sidewalk cafe", but food quality was above average. Also, SK... More
