Great local type restaurants - no tourist traps

Does anyone recommend any great local restaurants that are not tourist traps? Any cozy restaurants with great seafood (not fried)? Anything unique?

Shipp's Harbour Grill and Cosmos should fit your criteria. A little farther away - in Perdido Key - Fisherman's Corner has an excellent, New Orleans-oriented menu.

Tin top, shipp's, cosmo's, EAT!, big fish, steamer.

Most places will do grilled, blackened, steamed etc..

Or pick up some fresh catch & get some charcoal!
