When you’re ready to take a break from exploring the great outdoors and refuel with a fantastic meal, Wakulla County has plenty of great dining options that will tantalize your taste buds.

Sopchoppy Pizza Company

Fresh seafood gets most of the attention on Florida’s gulf coast, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t find outstanding pizza on your visit to Wakulla County. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available, and the open-air patio is one of the best places to take in the sights of quant Sopchoppy when the weather is amenable. Sopchoppy Pizza Company was also featured on Only in Your State as one of the 11 Scrumptious Restaurants In Florida You Never Even Knew Existed.

Posey’s Steamroom and Oyster Bar

The name says it all—if you’re looking for succulent steamed seafood and the freshest oysters on the half-shell around, look no further than Posey’s. This Panacea institution serves up everything from fresh gulf grouper to sweet and tender crab claws, and if you’re an angler you can bring in your own catch and have them cook it for you.

Riverside Cafe on the River

Nestled right on the banks of the St. Marks River, near where it empties into the Gulf of Mexico, Riverside Cafe on the River is a local’s favorite known for tasty seafood, ample outdoor seating, and beautiful views. You must try their blackened grouper sandwich!

Angelo and Son’s Seafood Restaurant

Angelo and Son’s has been around since 1945, and it’s hard to say what’s better: their famous seafood au gratin specialties, or the magnificent sunsets over the Ochlockonee Bay. Thankfully, you can enjoy both at the same time.

Spring Creek Restaurant

A landmark of the tiny fishing village of Spring Creek, Spring Creek Restaurant has been serving up fresh local seafood dinners and fantastic steaks for decades. Save room for dessert, because the house-made pies are out of this world.

Wakulla Springs Lodge

The Wakulla Springs Lodge anchors the beautiful Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park. The dining room at the lodge features an upscale, yet relaxed atmosphere, and it’s famous for dishes such as prime rib, fried chicken, and their delectable seafood feast.
