Watch the waves roll in while enjoying gourmet fare - from shrimp & grits to house baked breads

Santa Rosa Beach, FL - (March 05, 2010) - Guests at WaterColor Inn & Resort no longer have to wait until dinner to enjoy its AAA Four Diamond cuisine. Fish Out of Water now slings its legendary hash for breakfast, too.

The morning menu will showcase Fish Out of Water's eponymous theme - local food with an eclectic twist. Some of the dishes on the new breakfast menu include Bourbon Vanilla French Toast made with house-baked challa; Shane's Shrimp & Grits, which combine the restaurant's famous grits with sautéed fresh gulf shrimp, a poached egg and creamy tomato gravy; and Classic Quiche Lorraine - sweet onions, smoked bacon and gruyere cheese in a flaky pastry crust.

"Fish Out of Water and its staff is continually recognized for its spectacular dinner creations," said Eric Sather, General Manager of WaterColor Inn & Resort. "Now guests can begin the day with the same level of cuisine on the patio overlooking the Gulf of Mexico." Fish Out of Water and its staff have been recognized by the well-respected travel group AAA and the James Beard Foundation for food excellence. The breakfast menu was created with the same emphasis on quality and service.

Several items are sure to stand out. For house baked goodness, try the restaurant's bread basket, served with cultured butter, artisanal preserves or Tupelo honey. For a southern favorite, indulge in buttermilk biscuits topped with chocolate gravy, or take on the restaurant's famous spicy Bloody Mary or fresh mimosa. Kids also get the Fish Out of Water treatment with special menu items like French toast and Anson Mills oats. Fish Out of Water, located at WaterColor Inn & Resort, serves breakfast daily from 7:00 - 10:30 a.m.
