This type of fish has a very mild flavor (somewhere in between sea bass and halibut) with a light, sweet taste and large, chunky flakes, almost like lobster or crab. But you’ll also find it served in fillets which are baked, grilled or broiled with a flavor-bursting medley of garlic, butter, olive oil and key lime juice.
If you prefer your fish to be filleted, Snapper is amazing when marinated in the same citrus-garlic-cilantro mix mentioned above and quickly sautéed in a hot pan with a drizzle of olive oil before being served with light, fluffy rice and fresh seasonal veggies. The most common way to cooks nook is to carefully fillet the fish then cover it in a light marinade or dry rub.
In Santa Rosa Beach, Buddy’s Seafood Market always has a fresh supply of Mali, grouper and other in-season fish. During the week she knuckles down and gets the job done, but on the weekend she spends her time soaking up the sunshine on the little volcanic island she calls home.
If you're following my blog, you'll know that I received an unexpected invitation to accompany a friend to 30A in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. The one word that comes to my mind about Sea grove Village Marketplace is VALUE.
That, in addition to the delicious food, was the reason for the second visit later in the week. Lunch orders can be placed at the counter near the back of the restaurant.
So, if you want value for your money, head over to Sea grove Village Marketplace. Talking to some or the “old timers”, this was a place to gather for locals and second homeowners.
Keys to second homes were left on the counter for arriving family or friends when it was in the first location. Tried to eat here ton ite, but the management now forces customers to use the valet parking.
Hi John, We are very sorry you are upset about our addition of complimentary valet. With the elimination of all the public spots by the County on the East side of Highway 395 to make room for the turning lane, it has been quite a challenge to keep things the same for both our long time and new customers.
We are having to think outside the box, and are working to get those that would like to join us for lunch and dinner accommodated. Trust me, the cost of a full time valet service is quite expensive.
The 30A area is growing at a rapid pace, and we are all trying to adjust. You all are a good part of the soul that makes the Market so special.
We've had quite a few of our long time customers make the change to the free valet. Claim your listing for free to respond to reviews, update your profile and much more.
We’ve been a part of the Sea grove Beach community for many years, dating all the way back to 1949. Generations of guests return year after year to dine here, purchase souvenirs, and experience life on the beach as it once was.
Standard fare with grouper shrimp but has burgers. We ordered hush puppies for appetizers, and they were on table in 5 minutes- scary.
I got a burger which was good but fries tasted nasty- they were cooked and setting under heat lamp. They give out a real good portion and the price is not bad at all.
Each time we visit the Florida gulf coast we have lunch at least once at the Sea grove Village Marketplace. Our last trip, to our disappointment, the Market was closed for construction.
Now they're back in business with better parking and many of the fun aspects of the old facility carried forward to the new one. The shrimp is fresh and sweet, and cooked to perfection.

They are deeply committed to ongoing local conservation efforts and preserving the rich history of the area. The land where Sunk Galley currently sits was once used as a landmark for the legendary fisherman of South Walton.
And the menu at Sunk Galley Oyster Bar reflects that heritage and highlights the best this area has to offer. A 30A hot spot for oysters, live music, and great beer to pair with your favorite seafood items.
