Atmosphere was great. The view of the lake was peaceful. The shrimp and grits were really good. My friend had the red snapper and said it was good as well.

If you have a lot of time to kill, plan to dine at the Old Florida Fish House. The food was "meh" and over priced for what you get -- and the service, while nice, was extremely slow... especially given the few number of patrons...More

Weary of the ridiculous crowds in Rosemary and Seaside, we ate at this place near our rental on a Sunday evening. The restaurant and setting are very lovely; we sat right by the window looking out on the lake during the beginnings of sunset. We'd...More

Excellent, fresh ingredients make this a favorite sea food destination. I recommend sitting in the bar area - same food without the 2 hour wait. There's a cute patio area with ping pong and bag toss games for while you wait.

Description
Welcome to Old Florida Fish House, located in the heart of Seagrove Beach, Florida. First opening its doors in the summer of 2005, the Fish House is a family friendly restaurant that features daily seafood specials prepared by our executive chef, Paul Richards and some of the best sushi available on the Emerald Coast. A casual atmosphere, along with lakefront dining, is sure to provide you and your family with the perfect celebratory experience. Dinner and sushi start at 5 PM and no reservations are required or observed. We would also like to invite you to visit us at the Porch serving lunch daily. The newest addition to the Old Florida Fish House, the Porch is a beautiful full service bar built on a screened in porch right along Eastern Lake. The bar and tables are made from sinker cypress wood and offers guests a gorgeous view in a relaxed setting with plenty of big screen high definition televisions to watch the big game. The Porch is open every day of the week for lunch and dinner, starting at 11am. Old Florida Fish House is considered a hidden gem on 30A and graciously takes the crown as a favorite local's hot spot. With seating in the hundreds, celebrations are encouraged. Proudly featuring local live music and happy hour, Old Florida Fish House is a hidden gem and one you don't want to miss when you come visit South Walton! We look forward to having you soon!
