The Best burgers, seafood baskets and key lime pie around! We’ve been a part of the Sea grove Beach community for many years, dating all the way back to 1949.
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. It was all good, grouper, shrimp, and the crab cakes.
Lunch orders can be placed at the counter near the back of the restaurant. At dinner time, there are wait staff that takes your order at the table.
If you go at dinner time, ask for Charles, he took excellent care of us on our evening visit! So, if you want value for your money, head over to Sea grove Village Marketplace.
And if you see Charles, tell him he came highly recommended by Travel and Table! 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.

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.

The waiter ended up turning the light out on the ceiling fan and asked if we would like a citronella candle, and he brought one out. The table next to us asked if he could bring a candle out for them also.
Waitstaff was very friendly, but food took 40 minutes. I get that the place was busy, and maybe short-staffed, but the food should have been better considering the price and wait.
