At the Hurricane Oyster Bar & Grill
Whether you’re a local or a visitor, sometimes you crave a neighborhood hole-in-the-wall atmosphere. Hurricane Oyster Bar & Grill is casual enough that it feels like home but exceeds expectations with quality food and exceptional service.
Approaching the restaurant, it has an old-school Florida beach bar vibe, which encourages patrons to relax into the South Walton setting. The menu is comprised of flavor influences from the Atlantic Hurricane Corridor, which encompasses Florida, but also includes flavors of the Caribbean islands, Louisiana
(specifically New Orleans), South Carolina low country and Tex-Mex.
The kitchen features locally sourced products and is considered to be a scratch kitchen as they make most of their specialties, including their sauces and famous tuna dip, in-house. Some of the most sought-after menu items include fish tacos, shrimp tacos, fresh Florida seafood, wings and oysters prepared in a variety of ways. Many come from near and far for the oysters in particular.
They keep it Emerald Coast-centric too, with their beer selection that features 14 local taps. Their signature hurricane and grapefruit mojitos are refreshing favorites on their daily happy hour special. All food and beverage items are reasonably priced, further promoting a stress-free experience.
“We are a fun beach restaurant and bar where you can bring the whole family for a game of cornhole and a drink, but we then exceed your expectations with our food and service,” said David Phillips, general manager of Hurricane Oyster Bar & Grill. “This experience can be attributed to our wonderful staff that cares for each guest and hardworking kitchen staff that makes it all in-house.”
Much of the staff has worked at Hurricane for years and takes pride in going the extra mile where customer service is concerned. They get to know the customers and make them feel welcome each time they visit, which in turn, makes guests feel valued and encouraged to take ownership.
Hurricane Oyster Bar & Grill gives a true taste of Florida lifestyle from its laid-back atmosphere to its food brimming with fresh and
