Welcome to Emerald Coast Foodie Files! In this forum, the ONLY thing we will discuss is Food on the Emerald Coast. Well, I take that back, we’ll talk about wine too. And, most likely, vodka and caviar. Whether you are a local or a visitor, our area is the perfect dining escape for a foodie frenzy and The Emerald Coast Foodie Files is here to lead you to a mecca of amazing food!

If you’re interested in learning about the best eats and liquid treats on the Emerald Coast, then this blog is for you. You may wonder….what is the credibility of this blog? Why should I read it….better yet, why should I trust it? The answer to that is simple. I’m a foodie. Not just any foodie though. The kind of foodie that knows about food, really knows about food.
