Some of Our Favorite Take Out Food Spots in South Walton
The global Coronavirus pandemic has changed so much in regards to how we function as a society. So many small businesses have suffered tremendously due to the shut-downs and stay at home orders. The restaurant industry has been one of the biggest casualties of COVID-19 which is why we feel it’s so important to do everything we can to help them get through this thing.
As I write this in August of 2020, signs of a turn around are apparent and most all restaurants on 30A (the ones that survived) are opened with limited dine-in capacity. However, just about all of them offer curbside pick-up which is a great option for vacationers and locals alike. Ordering take-out food is a great way to support the restaurant owners and employees so we’re all about sharing our list of favorite places on 30A to grab To-Go eats. Our list begins on the east end of South Walton in Inlet Beach and goes west from there so let’s get started…
Our Favorite Places to Grab Takeout along 30A and in South Walton
amici 30A Italian Kitchen located in Inlet Beach at 30Avenue offers online To-Go ordering which is so convenient. They’re open daily 11 am – 9 pm and their food is spectacular. Living in Inlet Beach, it’s our “Go To” spot when we want to treat ourselves to a great meal. Amy’s amici 30A Meatballs are to die for as are their Brussels Sprouts small plates. Pizza lovers will rejoice when they see the many authentic Italian options available. Some of my favorite amici 30A pastas include Rigatoni Bolognese and Geo’s Lasagna. If you’re staying in Rosemary Beach, Inlet Beach, Seacrest Beach or Alys Beach amici 30A Italian Kitchen is just minutes away and is a great place to grab takeout.

Publix in WaterColor makes some of the best sub-sandwiches I’ve had anywhere in South Walton and the United States for that matter. My favorite is the chicken tender sub but they’re all delicious. A 12 incher is about $7.50 and is the equivalent of 2 full meals. So the portion size, quality (Boar’s Head meat) and taste of a WaterColor Publix sub sandwich cannot be beat. Just make sure to call your order in as they do tend to get busy.
