Fort Walton Beach Restaurants

Not surprisingly, fresh seafood from local waters tops the menu at many Fort Walton Beach eateries. Preparation ranges from plain to fancy – battered, fried, and served with sides of hush puppies and coleslaw to broiled and served with lemon-butter sauce, angel hair pasta, and freshly baked bread.

Meat-and-potato lovers will find plenty of choices as well, everything from burgers and fries to prime rib and filet mignon. Ethnic choices include Italian, Mexican, Chinese, and Thai cuisine.

Open-air dining is a favorite with visitors and locals alike, with many eateries featuring decks or patios overlooking the water. The atmosphere at most places, even the most upscale, tends to be casual, and some are extra family- friendly, offering special menus and outdoor play areas for the kids.
