Fish Out of Water to participate in Taste of the Race

1.14 Fishout of Water

Fish Out of Water is found inside the Watercolor Inn, on the beach side overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.  It will be hard to find someone who hasn’t grabbed a drink at the bar, dined for dinner, or gathered for brunch at this very popular Watercolor restaurant. It has a very loyal following in both locals and tourists alike.  My husband and I got engaged here at Watercolor and during that visit, we dined at Fish Out of Water.  Let me be honest, any place that serves Veuve Clicquot by the glass is my kind of place!  Don’t pity him…he knew exactly what he was signing up for! The Watercolor Inn and Fish Out of water both hold a special place in my heart as it really marked the beginning of our journey together.


This is a great place for any occasion really, from reserving the private dining room for a large group looking for privacy, to special events like a rehearsal dinner. This place will not disappoint you. You can’t beat the location, the food is phenomenal, and the wine list distinctive.



A few favorites on the menu include:


  • Braised Pork Belly
  • Mini Crabcake Trio
  • Local Arugala Salad
  • Tuna Poke
  • Roasted Black Grouper
  • Shrimp and Scallop Paella
  • Pork Osso Bucco
  • For dessert, the Nightly Souffle, which for me mustn’t become a nightly indulgence
