Stinky's Fish Camp in Dune Allen
Gluten Free by the Sea

Staying gluten free isn't a challenge in South Walton, where you can find something for any mood, from a light, healthy breakfast to a fine dining feast. (And if you’re looking to stay healthy in general, South Walton is the spot.) With all the fresh Gulf seafood and local produce around, the challenge might be narrowing down your options!


Power up for the day at Another Broken Egg Café in Grayton Beach, where you can take your pick of a variety of hearty omelets or skillets featuring local flavors and seafood. Don't want to miss out on a warm stack of pancakes first thing in the morning? Don't worry – just order the house-recipe gluten-friendly pancakes with the delectable toppings of your choice.

Looking for something on the lighter side? La Loba's Café in Blue Mountain is at your service with gluten-free muffins beloved by locals – and nothing beats a bag of gluten-free granola to kick start your day.

If you like to keep things meat-free as well, both restaurants also cater to vegetarians!


Mile Marker Fifteen at The Hub 30A in WaterSound

Pop into The Hub 30A in WaterSound for lots of choices for an al fresco meal. Stop by Mile Marker Fifteen for tacos, salads, or chips and dips. Stick with corn tortillas and get the Gulf shrimp or grouper tacos for a South Walton treat that might have you forgetting you're avoiding gluten!

Looking for something to stick to your ribs instead? Grab a BBQ platter from Local Smoke and chow down on a pile of meat and two sides – just set aside a little time for a post-lunch nap afterward.

Sit down with a plate of the freshest seafood the Gulf has to offer at Stinky's Fish Camp in Dune Allen, where a casual atmosphere and a fantastic view belie high-quality cuisine.

For a cornucopia of seafood options, try Goatfeathers Seafood Market, where you can get just about any seafood you're craving, prepared in the restaurant or to take home and make yourself from the market.


Whether you're looking to graze on tapas over a glass of red wine or pull up your chair at an old-school Florida seafood establishment, you won't be hard-pressed to find delicious dinner options, hold the gluten. 

At La Crema Tapas and Chocolate in Rosemary Beach, most of the menu is gluten free, and all of it is classically Spanish and correspondingly tasty. There's no need to sacrifice for good health as you munch on crispy brussels sprouts or blackened shrimp over asparagus and choose from an outstanding wine list.

Bring the whole family and gaze out over Eastern Lake while eating Florida classics like Mahi-Mahi with lemon caper sauce at Old Florida Fish House. Sure, they have fried seafood too, but the grilled fish might surprise you – and if it doesn't, the sushi will!

Don't Forget Dessert
