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.

Lunch: salad good, Chicken Tortilla soup WONDERFUL!

Lunch salad was very good, but the Chicken Tortilla soup was WONDERFUL!!!! Really loved that soup! And it was filling, too! Also, very friendly staff. Still, not 100% sure if we will return....their new location is difficult to access if you don't live or rent inside that complex. But if the... read more

We were at SK for my sister's retirement dinner. There were 5 of us there and we were treated like royalty! Our waiter Troy was so attentive! The chef brought us wonton appetizers that were so good. Several in the group had the steak medallions and ate every bite! They were so tender and delicious! The retirement girl had Shrimp... More

I've been going to Rosemary for the last 3 years and we always go to Summer Kitchen. It's not going to blow you away but the service has always been great and the food consistently good. You can't beat the convenience either if your staying in Rosemary.

Lunch was quickly prepared and served - fresh local greens for our salad!! Very friendly, helpful staff - willing to work with our special requests and even make suggestions we did not think of, which turned out to be exactly what we wanted.. It is small - not much seating, but was not crowded the rainy day we went.

Best Pork Chop in town bar none. The shrimp and grits were excellent as well. Our server Taylor made sure classes were always full and had dead on suggestions about the menu. Taylor set the bar real high for future servers. Thank you for a perfect evening

Had the avocado wrap for breakfast and it was very good, the service was good and sitting on the patio was nice. Would recommend this for breakfast and would return here.

My family and I recently visited to find that they are closing this week actually. According to their website, their building has sold and will be demolished. Sad to hear when a locally owned restaurant goes out. It will be interesting to see if/when they reopen. I hope they have a larger dining area if they do reopen. We stopped... More

My family and I had a couple of lunches at the Summer Kitchen. Here is a summary of our visit: Atmosphere - cafe. Small inside seating area and tables outside. Get there early if you want to sit in the AC. Tough to find enjoyment having lunch and sweating. Service - very friendly and attentive at the cash register. No... More
