Cafe Thirty-A



Harriet Crommelin is one of South Walton’s greatest success stories. Her restaurant, Café Thirty-A in Seagrove Beach, has pleased the palates and filled the bellies of thousands of locals and vacationers for decades.

Her story began when she opened her first restaurant, Kat and Harri’s, in 1982 in Montgomery, Alabama, which she ran until 1995. Kat and Harri’s provided a casual, “Cheers” atmosphere on one side of the restaurant, and fine dining on the other. Harriet sold Kat and Harri’s in 1995 to move to 30A. She brought her popular mix of casual freedom and upscale sophistication with her to the Gulf Coast and created Café Thirty-A.

Café Thirty-A offers impeccable service, a menu that changes daily, and consistency—the key to their success. The seafood is always fresh, the vegetables are locally sourced, and the uniqueness of each creation prepared will make every visit an experience. They have also been awarded Wine Spectators Award of Excellence since 1996!

The Prince Edward Island mussels in coconut cream broth served with grilled bread for dipping are a real treat that patrons return to indulge in time and again. And, the diver scallops served over red Himalayan rice and drizzled with a citrus beurre blanc is also a favorite.

The hand-muddled martinis like the James Bond, the Pineapple Cosmo, and the French Kiss are what make the bar such a happening place, especially on ‘Tini Night taking place every Tuesday and Thursday. And, for early birds, Café Thirty-A offers buy 1 entrée at the regular price and get a second of equal or lesser value free from 5–6 p.m. daily.

With exceptional food and gracious hospitality, Café Thirty-A is the ideal venue for wedding parties, receptions, banquets, meetings, and gatherings — large and small.
