If you are prepared to accept slow and terrible service, then you can tolerate this place for meals. Great wine/cheese store attached in a prime location of Watercolor. But we come here out of convenience and have for more than a decade.

They have the best chicken salad in Santa Rosa Beach! If you are in the area stop in for lunch or dinner. You will not be disappointed. The food is amazing.

Chan's, as always, was good food, attentive service and good wine. Note happy hour runs from 11:00 am to 6:00pm during which wine by the glass is a carafe for the price of a glass.

We had a late lunch twice last week while visiting the area. Everything we had was very good - the salad with lemon dressing, the Cuban sandwich & the crab cakes. We enjoyed a table outside in the shade. While the area around Seaside was...More

Modeled after the popular flagship Wine World in Destin, but tailored for WaterColor's laid-back scene, Wine World's 30A location combines a sophisticated yet informal wine bar with a separate family-friendly mini-market and restaurant. The outdoor tables are a wonderful spot to people-watch, and Wine World at WaterColor is frequently voted among South Walton's hottest spots for wine lovers.
