LIVE MUSIC THIS WEEKEND!

With authentic Southern flavors, an ever-bustling bar scene and its decidedly casual coastal vibe, Great Southern Cafe has been a consistent crowd-pleaser in Seaside for years. Now Great Southern Cafe’s owner, Chef Jim Shirley, has cooked up something entirely new in South Walton.

Perched directly on Choctawhatchee Bay at the southern foot of the Highway 331 bridge, Shirley’s newest restaurant – The Bay – is now open.

Located in the beloved local hangout once known as Sea Bar, The Bay’s high-ceiling interior features an expansive full bar, an open kitchen, a special bar just for sushi (overseen by local favorite Chef Jamison Hendler), and plenty of seating for private indoor dining. Outside on the covered deck, there’s a full open-air bar with an absolutely stunning view of Choctawhatchee Bay. Go just a few steps further, and you’ll find your toes in the sand, where you can lounge beneath the shade of palm trees.

Shirley has created a new kind of local hangout at The Bay, where guests can bask right on the sand while enjoying live music, cocktails, beach games, standup paddle boarding, and of course, excellent food.
