About
FOOW is the acronym for the restaurant formerly known as Fish Out of Water at WaterColor, FL. After a significant renovation, the restaurant reopened on June 23, 2018; and remains committed to offering the same high-quality service and cuisine it is known for, now in a more approachable coastal setting. As one of the 30A area’s only large family-style restaurants and bars overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, FOOW embodies the spirit of the WaterColor community: coastal, fun, and unpretentious, with impeccable service and cuisine. The menu, drinks, and interior design, coupled with a streamlined open-air kitchen, create a lively and engaging ambience- perfect for a midday break with family, a fun
