Blue Mountain Beach, in the middle of SoWal on 30A, is a sleepy place  that would be very easy to drive through if you were not aware of all this area has to offer . Blue Mountain Beach is located on 30A with Grayton Beach to the east and Santa Rosa Beach to the west.

It’s here that you’ll find Justin Gaffrey Art Studio and Sowal’s oldest health food store, For the Health of It. There are some great restaurants here, as well. Johnny McTighes Irish Pub is popular with the locals and Marie’s Bistro is just a couple doors down from it. Local Catch is a short distance west  on 30A and so is Basmati’s Restaurant, which offers food with an Asian twist. Cafe Tango

Blue Mountain Beach

is an intimate dining spot with amazing food and a wonderful atmosphere. Back in the center of Blue Mountain Beach is Blue Mountain Creamery with homemade ice cream. Not surprisingly, this place always has lots of customers when the weather becomes hot! It’s the perfect place to stop for a sweet treat on your way back from the beach.. Sally’s By The Sea Store is a good place to go for burgers and fried chicken. They smoke slabs of ribs every Friday night and they smell delicious! Sally’s Back Side offers after hours food and entertainment. Acr

A few blocks from the public beach access on Highway 83 is a trail entrance into Point Washington State Forest. Walk the trail and you’ll see Cypress swamps, fields of wildflowers and stands of Longleaf Pine. Blue Mountain Beach hosts three coastal dune lakes – Draper Lake, Little Redfish Lake and Big redfish Lake. All three lakes are good places to go if you’re looking for nice places to fish or go kayaking.

Sleepy? Yes, but there really is much to do and see in Blue Mountain Beach!

Marie’s Bistro in Blue Mountain Beach

Marie’s Bistro, located in Blue Mountain Beach

Marie's Bistro in Blue Mountain Beach on 30A, 30a real estate, Blue Mountain Beach

Blue Mountain Beach,

is a place that just makes you feel welcome when you stop in for a drink, for dinner or to enjoy the entertainment. You may be sure you’ll be greeted with a smile. The owners, Marie and Hanie Nasri, ran a catering business which gave them time to spend with their children. If they had plans with their family, they’d tell customers that they were booked and try again another time.As the kids grew they decided it might be time to look for a larger venue for their catering and found their present location in Blue Mountain Beach. The location allowed them to open a restautant in addition to their catering work.

As the popularity of their restaurant grew, they found they needed room to expand. Luckily, they were able to grow into the rest of the building to become the amply sized restaurant they are now. Their original dining room is used for dinner service or reserve for private parties and the additional space has a full bar and a larger dining room. This room plays host to the entertainment. There might be karaoke, belly dancing, DJs or live music with no cover charge.

Marie’s Bistro has a nicely varied menu with steaks, seafood, sushi and pasta. They have plans to begin serving breakfast three days a week soon. The owners consider it an honor when a customer chooses their restaurant as their destination for the evening. And, it shows in their service!
