Sunday brunch is good and the view is lovely. Their "happy hour" is a joke and their dinner menu is nothing to brag about. Way to expensive for the food & service. Very snobbish!

Group of 6 today. Cold gumbo sent back got it back microwaved to warm. Grandsons chicken sandwich and FF were cold sent them back. Grouper was super small. Rice gummy. This was my 3rd time in for lunch, never again. Overpriced food

We were delighted to sit out on the generous deck, for a light lunch at the renown Vue Restaurant...and enjoyed the nicest view of any restaurant (among many lovely ones) so far during this trip to Florida. Our corn and potato chowder, plus smoked tuna dip and chips were all delicious. They were smartly served by our attentive, professional waiter...and... More

Great setting, beautiful restaurant, decent wait staff but its yet another overpriced restaurant along the 30A corridor. Food is good but not great so I did not find it a value for what you pay. Will not go back again.

We had crabcake appetizer, which was excellent. Both had pistacio crusted grouper, excellently prepared, very nice taste. Good wine choices, good dessert. Very good service too. And we arrived at sunset, with an excellent view of the sunset from our table. We didn't know before, but between 5 and 6 entrees are buy one get one free. We will be... More

Our server was so nice and patient - we had a big group that was challenging at times, and she was superb. The chef also visited our table - we all expressed our compliments. Also, we were there early on a Saturday and ordered before 6 PM, so it was buy one get one free - thus my "excellent" rating... More

Beautiful setting on the beach. Servers were good. Problems: ordered Moscow Mule - made wrong in my opinion and served in a cheap brass coated mug that was chipped along the rim leaving the tin showing and affecting the taste. They remade drink a little better 2d time. Later, son received a "skunked" beer had to be sent back. 3... More

The Vue on 30A is a casually elegant restaurant on the beach with a gorgeous view. It is associated with a golf course and is open to members as well as the public. The waiter was very attentive so we were pleased with the service. However, we ordered the pistachio encrusted grouper and the filet mignon and neither were exceptional.... More

We went there for a special dinner with our son and wife who live in California that we had not seen for over a year. We were greeted and seated with minimum wait. Our problem started when we found that the actual menu was very different from the on line menu; we had chosen this restaurant for some of the... More

Made a reservation and stopped here for dinner tonight. We sat out on the back terrace patio overlooking the Gulf Coast - Santa Rosa Beach - to watch the sunset. We had a side of hot bread with herb-olive oil to dip. It was also very tasty as an hors-d'oeuvres and we also had a very nice gin and tonic.... More
