New Bayfront Restaurant: North Beach Tortilla Co

North Beach Tortilla Co

Most people are on the hunt for beachfront dining, but what if we told you that you could get a memorable meal with just as stunning of a view North of the beach just a few miles? Esteemed Chef Jim Shirley (the mastermind behind The Bay, Meltdown, and Great Southern Cafe) has created a new concept on some pristine bayfront property. North Beach Tortilla Co. overlooks the Choctawhatchee Bay and is serving up fresh Spanish and Southwestern food in a hip and family-friendly environment.

When you walk in you’ll be taken back by the beautiful bayfront view, even from inside! Large accordion glass doors line the entire North facing wall. Every seat has a top-notch view. Outside you’ll find a large wrap-around bar serving up tasty cocktails and an array of specialty margaritas - try the prickly pear. Lounge seating, yard games, fire pits, a stage, and a dock are below on the sand. Keep the kiddos (and adults too, there’s no age limit on a game of corn hole!) entertained while you wait for your table or for your food. The outdoor, open-air dining concept offers a lively space to enjoy a night with family and friends. Enjoy live music from local bands and a daily happy hour from 4 pm to 6 pm. Trust us when we say the only thing that rivals a beachfront sunset is a bayfront sunset.

Start your meal with the street corn and an order of pork rinds for a flavorful beginning. Unique taco concoctions featuring fresh gulf grouper, roasted pork, and shredded chicken are topped with complementary accompaniments for a satisfying bite. Chorizo is also an option - and one you won’t regret. Sizzling fajitas and a crispy chimichanga round out the entree list alongside achiote rubbed grilled grouper. Listen up vegetarians, now is your time to shine! North Beach has exceptional vegetable-forward options. Tacos starring sweet potatoes, curried beans, fried eggplant, and more are just a few of the bold and meatless choices available. Blue corn tortillas mean that gluten-free eaters can also find something satisfying here. North Beach has got your dietary restrictions covered, and you can tell with each bite that the food is fresh and made from scratch. Adults will love the exotic menu showcasing ingredients that are brought in daily. Kids will love the quesadillas served in a dinosaur-shaped taco holder. And everybody will love the churros dusted in cinnamon sugar and dipped in hazelnut mousse.

North Beach Tortilla Co. is the ideal place for a date night, family night, or a large get together. The atmosphere easily lends itself to anybody simply trying to enjoy authentically delicious food in a fun setting.
