1. Stinky's Fish Camp
If you find yourself waiting for a table at Stinky's Fish Camp, don't worry - it's worth the wait.

2. Red Bar
If you're in the area, don't miss out on Grayton Beach's Red Bar, it's a must-visit! The atmosphere is a funky and fun bohemian beach shack, perfect for enjoying great food, cocktails, and live music.
