My daughter and I rode our bikes from the Seagrove Beach area. Chose to dine inside. Our service was so friendly and attentive! The food was fantastic.

This is just a great place to eat. Very busy, so we went at a down time late lunch/early dinner. Everything was good and it's just a cool place. The grits and fried green tomatoes were my personal favorite

This restaurant puts a flavorful spin on some traditional southern classics. The Gouda filled cheesy grits will knock your socks off. The restaurant is nestled in Seaside Florida which is quite possibly the cutest beach town I have ever experienced! The Great Southern cafe is known for its mojitos if your in the mood for an adult beverage. I tried both the cherry and the peach. Perfect!!!!
