The Best Three Restaurants For A Girl’s Night Near Alys Beach, Florida

When I think of a ladies night, I think of getting pretty to drink wine and laugh with my favorite friends.  One of my favorite beach towns on South Walton’s Scenic Highway 30a is Alys Beach so I thought I’d share my favorite spots in and around Alys.   One of them does not require getting pretty and is more “beachy” than the other two so you have options!


Caliza Restaurant


One thing that will first impress you here is the location, which is inside Alys Beach. Eating at pool-side not far away from a white sand beach is not a common experience. It is a form of relaxation on its own! Most of the meals are seasonal. Many of the dishes offered here are made with fresh local and organic ingredients that are not available throughout the year so few dishes are available at all times.  They meals are unique and remarkable, not something you’d find at most places here on the Emerald Coast of Florida.


Apart from the attractive ambience of the location, the stunning décor and architecture of the interior is another reason to spend some time here.  Like all of Alys Beach, the half to experience is just looking around and enjoying the architecture and design. Alys Beach is always a fantastic place for a ladies night but Caliza makes it magical.

Restaurant Paradis


When I want to have dinner with some friends, I head to Rosemary Beach’s beloved Restaurant Paradis.  When you enter, there is a lounge with a large white granite bar.  The bar is the place to be after work and they are known for their wine selection.  The dining room here offers some romantic appeal with coastal chic decor and dim lighting.  If the elegance of the dining room isn’t enough to entice you inside, you can eat on the patio.  Here you will have gas lamps lighting up your view of manicured Rosemary Beach.  How does that sound to you?

Crabby Steve’s Bar and Gulfside Restaurant


If I’m in the mood to hang out on South Walton Beaches with my girlfriends but don’t want to eat soggy sandwiches and melted frozen drinks that I prepared before I hit the sand, I set up near Crabby Steve’s Bar and Gulfside Restaurant which has beachside food and drinks.  This restaurant “hides” itself on the beach.  It’s accessible from the beach and part of Highpointe Resort in the South Walton beach community of Seacrest Beach.  


They have a variety of meal options and great drinks for hot summer days or autumn night walks on the beach.  When I don’t want to get dressed up to spent time with my girls, I head to the beach and make Crabby Steve’s my go-to for food and drinks.  It’s beach living at its best.
