Shunk Gulley Oyster Bar

- (, )

Location: 1875 S Highway 393, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida Phone: (850) 622-2733 Website: Click Here to View

Named after the historic fishing reef located directly to the south in the Gulf of Mexico, the hard-to-find “shunk gulley” would serve as a point of navigation for boaters along the coast. The intersection of Highway 393 and 30A served as a point of navigation for boaters along the coast. Fishermen would launch straight out from the current Ed Walline Beach Access to head to the reef. Rumor has it that this secretive reef was one of the top fishing locations in this part of the Gulf. Once used as a landmark for the legendary fisherman of South Walton, the new Shunk Gulley bar and restaurant hopes to be a mainstay for locals to gather, visitors to enjoy, all while we continue the legacy of conservation. Shunk Gulley has teamed up with the South Walton Artificial Reef Association (SWARA) to bring back active fisheries in the Gulf. Helping build a more diverse ecosystem that is not only good for the Gulf, but good for your plate. Preserving the history of the area, new reef structures have been deployed in the Gulf and will carry the Shunk Gulley name. With an ongoing partnership with SWARA, more reef structure deployments are planned for the near future.

Shunk Gulley Oyster Bar – a new restaurant featuring classic coastal cuisine, stunning views and authentic southern hospitality – is open at the corner of County Road 393 and Scenic Highway 30-A, just across the street from Gulf Place.
