The Bay

A gem sitting directly on Choctawhatchee Bay at the southern foot of the 331 bridge, The Bay is Chef Jim Shirley's waterfront hot spot. The family-friendly restaurant features mouth-watering Southern gulf coast cuisine, sushi, a 12-draft beer system, inventive bar-crafted cocktails and 2015 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence wine selection. Table and bar seating is available inside and outside on the deck overlooking Choctawhatchee Bay. The Bay is a 2016 Perfect In South Walton award winner in multiple categories including menu variety, executive chef, seafood, and a signature cocktail. Stop by for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch!

The Bay has a beautiful New Orleans style garden courtyard available for rehearsal dinners, receptions and ceremonies under 100 guests, as well as brunches. Chef Jim Shirley is the owner of the exclusive in-house catering, Cadre of Chefs, so if you're looking for an exceptional venue with the best-tasting food in South Walton, look no further!
