The Perfect Place for Visitors and Locals Who are in a Vacation State of Mind

FOOW® is the acronym for a new iteration of the WaterColor restaurant formerly known as Fish Out of Water.

FOOW remains committed to offering the same high-quality service and cuisine it is known for, now in a more approachable coastal setting. As one of the 30A area’s only large family-style restaurants and bars overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, FOOW embodies the spirit of the WaterColor community: coastal, fun, and unpretentious, with impeccable service and cuisine. A destination for eating well in lively and approachable surroundings, FOOW is “WaterColor casual” at its finest!  

For FOOW branded merchandise, including adults and kids apparel with light-hearted, fun phrases, be sure to visit the FOOWshoppe, located at the main entrance of the restaurant.
