    Magnolia Grill
    157 Brooks Street SE
    Ft. Walton Beach, FL 32548
    850.302.0266 FAX 850.302.0316
    The Magnolia Grill, which sits on historic Brooks Street in downtown Ft. Walton Beach, is equal parts museum and dining establishment. The walls of this 1910 catalog house are covered with pieces of local history including photos of people and places that now only exist in the memories of those who grew up or lived here “back in the day.” The owners Tom and Peggy Rice are near natives with deep family roots that show at every turn. The Magnolia Grill epitomizes old-time Fort Walton. Climb the stairs on the front porch, step inside and immediately you’re immersed in local history. Some of the photographs and plaques on the deep green and pale gold walls tell the Rice Family history; other faded, black and white photos by the late Arturo Mennillo tell the story of a 40’s-era Fort Walton. The Emerald Coast has been peopled by colorful characters and the Magnolia Grill preserves their stories for all to see.

    Big City American Bistro sits at the end of a short drive off the main drag of U. S. Highway 98, in a sort-of-artistic quarter of Fort Walton Beach. Like any true bistro, Big City links fast-food convenience with high-cuisine elegance. The menu runs the gamut from French/Mediterranean to American cooking, rack of lamb to mac and cheese. The menu is divided into appetizers, dinner salads, burgers, house specialties, “bistro fare,” and pizzas. There’s a daily soup, and a changing roster of desserts for which, trust me, you have to save room. Excellent Brunch Every Sunday.
