30A is home to the Gulf Coast’s finest dining experiences, so it’s no surprise that they deliver where it counts: Happy Hour. Buzzing with bargains on booze, appetizers and entrees, 30A has a full spread of restaurants teeming with deals. Here’s five to get you hooked on Happy Hour.
723 Whiskey Bravo, located in Seagrove Beach, hosts their Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 4 – 5 PM offering half-off beer, wine and liquor up on The Roof. Featuring fire pits and glimpses of the gulf, you really can’t go wrong with Whiskey. Downstairs dining offers 2 for 1 entrees from 5 – 6 PM Monday through Friday.
You could throw a rock from The Roof and hit the next stop on our hottest happy hour list (don’t actually do this — it’s practically a glass house, and you know what they say about stones and glass houses.) V Seagrove presents half-price entrees in the restaurant from 5 – 6 PM, and continues at the bar for another hour, where you can get $3 Stella drafts, $4 wines, $5 cocktails and discounts on 10 different appetizers from 5 – 7 PM.
Take the sidewalk west for five minutes, turn right, and cruise in to Crush, located on the west end of the Seaside Circle. Crush offers daily deals from 4 – 6 PM featuring a fanfare of half price wine, beer and killer sushi.
Fish Out Of Water offers three discounted happy-tizers, snapper ceviche being one among these, a $6 wine and cocktail list, and eleven different beers at $3 on average. Fish Out Of Water is located in WaterColor, and offers their happy hour nightly from 5 – 7 PM on the deck overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
Last call for alcohol on our hottest Happy Hour list leaves us at Marie’s Bistro in Blue Mountain Beach. Marie’s kicks off happy hour fairly early in the day, ringing in the bargains from 2 – 7 PM. Enjoy select beer and wine for $3, well liquor for $4 and the infamous $5 margaritas. Most appetizers are offered for $5, and from 4 – 6 PM enjoy the first seven sushi rolls on the menu for half price.
30A is freckled with restaurants bordering the beaches, most offering deals on drinks and food at some point in the day. These are only five examples to get you started on your happy hour hunt. Make it your mission to seek out the rest of the deals, and feel free to share your finds with us. Happy hunting!
