Whether you plan to be perfecting your tan on the beach, swimming in the waves, or enjoying any of the other land or sea activities in the Rosemary Beach community, you will need to fuel up throughout the day. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, the culinary options available are abundant. There is something for every taste and budget. Check out some of our favorite restaurants in Rosemary Beach below!
The Summer Kitchen Cafe
Before heading out for the day’s activities, you’ll want some breakfast. Stop by The Summer Kitchen Cafe on Main Street for your choice of French toast, pancakes, an omelet, or one of the specialty ‘breakfast roll up’ options to start the day out right.
Add some spice to the menu at Cowgirl Kitchen. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily you’re bound to find something to tingle your taste buds. Start off the day with a breakfast burrito stuffed with brisket, chorizo, bacon, cheddar, jalapeno cream cheese, avocado, and the house tomatillo sauce, or a chipotle sammy with fried egg, bacon, sliced tomato, provolone, and chipotle mayo. Come back later for nachos, taco salad, or a grouper sandwich with grilled Florida grouper accented with cilantro lime crema and jalapeno sweet pickle slaw. Choose the Cowgirl Burger or go vegetarian with their vegetarian green chile tacos. Finish off the meal with sweets like ice cream nachos – crisp flour tortillas lightly dusted with cinnamon sugar and topped with caramel and vanilla ice cream, or the chocolate chip cookie chalupa with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream.
Havana Beach Bar & Grill
For a quick soup, salad, sandwich, or even a burger, Havana Beach Bar & Grill has you covered. Take a break from the beach with their Havana Beach salad or Havana Cuban sandwich for a taste of Cuba. For kids who may not feel like this specialty cuisine, they have a kids’ menu featuring kid favorites like grilled cheese or chicken strips. They have options for vegetarian dishes as well.
Ticheli’s Italian Pizza
If you’re craving pizza while on vacation in Rosemary Beach, head to Ticheli’s. They have a wood oven bake pizza to satisfy your craving and fill you up. They have everything from the basic cheese pizza to traditional choices like pepperoni, Hawaiian, and all-meat. Try something special to Ticheli’s like the On The Border, with tastes like sriracha sauce, red onions, and jalapenos, or spicy buffalo chicken. Build your own with any number of toppings like red onions, green peppers, mushrooms, diced ham, crumbled bacon, pepperoni, ‘Slap Ya Mama,’ and a variety of sauces. Pile whatever you please on dough made with imported Italian flour and sized from 8” to 14.” Ask about the 12” gluten-free crust, or the 10” cauliflower crust.
Pescado Seafood Grill & Rooftop Bar
Enjoy al fresco Rosemary Beach dining and watch the sea from the rooftop bar or have a seat in their dining room. Pescado Seafood Grill & Rooftop Bar has options for seafood lovers and those who would rather stay close to shore. Enjoy the catch of the day, lobster, scallops, crab, and other seafood favorites or stay on shore with prime filet mignon and lamb ragout pasta.
Restaurant Paradis has surf and turf selections to satisfy any palate. Start your epicurean journey with diver scallops seared with a wild mushroom and sweet pea risotto, or a beef & blue cheese tortellini served with roasted garlic cream and truffle demi-glace. Try the chef’s soup of the day or watermelon gazpacho or choose a grilled Romaine salad while you wait for your entree of pistou & lobster encrusted grouper or roasted chicken breast. End the meal with a selection of gelatos and sorbets, the special flourless chocolate torte, or decadent vanilla crème brulee.
The Sugar Shak
Take a break from the beach to satisfy your sweet tooth at The Sugar Shak. Located on Main Street, this charming candy store and ice cream parlor has what it takes to satisfy any sugar craving. For a cold treat there are milk shakes, malts, and ice cream by the scoop – take on “the Belly Ache” – 16 scoops of ice cream with every topping they offer. Grab some fresh fudge, or stock up on old fashioned soft caramels or your favorite M&Ms, Twizzlers, Air Heads, and more.
Bayou Bill’s Crabhouse
Enjoy local seafood like shrimp, oysters, Choctawhatchee Blue Crab, and land-lover dishes like chargrilled chicken, ribs, burgers and more. Don’t forget to stop by and say hi to the alligators!

The kids will find something to fill their bellies here, too, with a kids’ menu for guests 11 and under that includes items like chicken tenders, pizza, popcorn shrimp, or Alaskan snow crab, just to name a few.
