Restaurant
“Owned by a local family for 40 years plus, this Mexican restaurant has an outdoor deck on the water and even a play area for the kiddos. The fish tacos are the best I’ve ever had, the steaks are amazing, the ceviche and homemade guacamole are delicious, In the margaritas superb. And of course all of the traditional Mexican fare is the best in Bay County. This Local favorite restaurant is about a 10 minute drive over the big Hathaway bridge in the historic fishing town of St. Andrews, which is also a must see with a marina and quaint shops as well as other great restaurants. ”

“Anyone that's a native Floridian or has lived here a long time knows Publix is known for its subs and sweet tea! While I do my weekly grocery shopping here, I love to stop here before I head to the beach and get a sub and iced tea. Their subs are AMAZING. Forget Firehouse, Subway, or any other chain sub shop. Publix makes excellent subs and you can even order on their app and pick up in store without a wait! My favorite is the Cuban, and if you are lucky...they will use actual Cuban bread instead of a plain, white sub roll! ”
