FOOW- Fish Out of Water

FOOW- The Fish is Back!

The perfect place for visitors and locals who are in a vacation state of mind.

FOOW is the acronym for and new iteration of the restaurant formerly known as Fish Out of Water. 

NOW OPEN, FOOW remains committed to offering the same high-quality service and cuisine it is known for, now in a more approachable coastal setting. 

As one of the 30A area’s only large family-style restaurants and bars overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, FOOW embodies the spirit of the WaterColor community: coastal, fun, and unpretentious, with impeccable service and cuisine. A destination for eating well in lively and approachable surroundings, FOOW is “WaterColor casual” at its finest! 

The menu, drinks, and interior design, coupled with a streamlined open-air kitchen, create a lively and engaging ambience- perfect for a midday break with family, a fun evening with friends or a romantic date night. 

FOOW features live music seasonally; and the expanded FOOWbar offers an inspired beverage program featuring some of the world’s best tequilas, rums, and more! For large groups for special celebrations, the FOOWroom is a private getaway from the crowds, surrounded by an impressive wine cellar. 

Executive Sous Chef Preetam Pardeshi oversees all culinary programming for the restaurant, creating locally-sourced Southern cuisine with global touches influenced by his own southwest Indian heritage, beloved family recipes, and world-class hospitality experience.  The FOOW menu comes courtesy of Chef de Cuisine Christopher Mayhue, who brings his own Southern heritage, world travels, and exceptional culinary experience.

FOOW also has a retail store, FOOWshoppe, offering FOOW spices and sauces, as well as adults and kids apparel complete with light-hearted, fun phrases.
