Description: 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.

The meals at Summer Kitchen are great with some really nice twists on traditional dishes and more importantly fresh ingredients. The mood of the place is beach-relaxed which makes you want to hang out a while. My only complaint is that in two visits I've found the counter staff to be less helpful than most. We have a family member... More

Not even a contest but this small, well run place with great food is the best in Rosemary Beach. They charge fair prices and everything ... including the coffee ... is very good. The staff works well as a team and has very good customer service. Our coffee order was forgotten and when we reminded the staff, they reacted promptly... More

Great food in a cool setting. It's just a little place with a walk up counter and seating for about 20 inside. The sandwiches were excellent. My two daughters, 8 and 14 loved the grilled cheese! Definitely worth a try.

This place is great. I love the family feeling that you get when you walk in. The staff was great and super friendly. I had a grilled cheese and let me tell you, it was amazing. My family members also said that there food was awesome. If you are looking for a nice lunch after a day at the beach,... More

We stopped on our bike ride around Rosemary Beach. It was nice sitting out and people watching while we ate. The French toast was five star and omelet was also good. The potatoes were terrible, cold and old tasting.j a tiny place though.

This is a great spot in Rosemary to have lunch! My family of 5 (kids are 10, 8 and 2 years old) all found something yummy to eat here.

My husband and I made a quick decision to stop in Summer Kitchen for lunch. I was a little leary as I was not familiar with their menu. I ordered ham and swiss wrap...delicious. But the big hit was my husband spicy chicken roll. He fell in love with the chicken roll. He is still talking about it a week... More

We have been going to Summer Kitchen for years. It our family's favorite place to go the first night we get to Rosemary Beach. It is consistently good. We love the Penne Shrimp Pasta, The Grouper, and the Shrimp and Grits. It is a small restaurant that looks more like a burger and fries/sandwich shop than a fine dining restaurant.... More
