Local Catch Bar & Grill Santa Rosa Beach


When on vacation, you expect to eat quality meals. And when on a beach vacation, those meals most certainly should include only the freshest seafood you can get. Leave the days-old frozen fish and gas station sushi at home! Fortunately, the local restaurants along the South Walton coast know that their vacationers are the best, and therefore deserve the best. These establishments deliver on their promise to serve you the finest and tastiest feasts.

Local Catch Bar & Grill is one of these popular and well-loved restaurants. Located in Santa Rosa Beach on Scenic Highway 30A and near a number of beach rentals, it's the perfect place to eat out on vacation.

Based on its name, you can probably guess that the Local Catch Bar & Grill is dedicated to offering its customers meals made from fresh, locally caught fish. The restaurant uses only local companies for its seafood and produce to ensure that its ingredients truly are the freshest you can find on the coast. The casual dining establishment incorporates this Gulf seafood to create coastal cuisine with a unique southern twist. Most of the chef's dishes are simple but flavorful. Because everything is made from scratch each day, the menu can vary depending on the day's fresh ingredients. Some of the menu items include Bowl of Gumbo, Crab Cake, Grouper Ceviche, Caribbean Shrimp Tacos, Shrimp and Grits, Seafood Sampler, and Southern Fish and Chips. The fish tacos with Pico de Gallo, cabbage, and house white sauce is one of the most popular dishes. The food is delicious, and best enjoyed with a cold beer, martini, cocktail, wine, or specialty drink.

Not only is the seafood fresh, but the atmosphere is also just as fresh! It's the perfect place for families, groups, and large parties. Multiple flat screens allow guests to watch live games, cheering on their team while chowing down and chilling with friends. Dining is offered both inside and outside on the patio, where you can enjoy your meal in the perfect Gulf Coast weather. Live music on Sunday Funday adds to the carefree environment. Special seasonal events like Tacky Christmas Sweater parties and the Halloween Bash are fun for locals and visitors. Happy Hour starts at 3 pm every day, with discounted food and drinks for everyone.
