About Our WaterColor Restaurant

With Seaside Views Over the Emerald Coast

As one of the 30A area’s only large family-style restaurants and bars overlooking the Gulf, FOOW – Fish Out of Water — embodies the spirit of the WaterColor community: coastal, fun, and unpretentious, with impeccable service and cuisine. Located at the AAA Four Diamond and Forbes Four-Star rated WaterColor Inn, a St. Joe Club & Resorts property, FOOW serves seasonal regional cuisine with a Southern Coastal approach in Santa Rosa Beach on Northwest Florida’s Emerald Coast. Opened in June 2018 after extensive renovations and menu updates of the previous award-winning iteration of Fish Out of Water, FOOW focuses on the fresh flavors of the coast combined with one of 30A’s most impressive Gulf views. High quality and efficient service sets the tone in an approachable, inspired setting serving lunch and dinner.
