1) Stinky's Fish Camp
    Known for their seafood, especially their oysters. Their seafood & 
    corn chowder is a must.

     A Nantucket vibe overlooking Alys Beach. Great food! One of 
      our favorite stops. 
3) Chanticleer Eatery

     summer salad and cookies. If you go, get there early as they 
     have limited parking and it gets busy fast.

Local Experiences:

Beachside bonfires -  Catch the sunset and roast s’mores. 30A Blaze is wonderful to work with. Added bonus, they’re veteran owned, We highly recommend. https://www.30ablaze.com/ Should you decide to book, then I’d recommend that you get from Amazon, “Magical Flames” as it creates vibrant rainbow flames which is a neat experience for both adults and kids alike.

Paddle Boarding - If adventure is your thing you can try paddle boarding on the dune lakes and in the oceans. You can rent them from The Boathouse in WaterColor. If you've never tried it, we highly recommend it. www.runsup.com/rentals/

Fishing - If you’re into fishing, Try Captain Phil’s Charters that departs out of Grayton Beach. You will have a blast with Captain Phil he is  incredibly knowable and attentive to individuals of varying skills and age. www.captphilscharters.com
